    This is my second grandson...(this is real special to a guy whose raised 4 daughters :D )
    He is exactly 9 days old today!
    His name is Brendan Joseph, & he came over to visit with Papaw for a little while this evening! :cool: :thumb: :thumb: :cool:

    btw...in case anybody's worried, I've already bought him a Thomas The Tank train set! :D ;) :D

    Congratulations Charlie. Hope he is brought up right. My oldest Grandson is 21 and is married and has absolutely no interest in trains. Now he is a truck driver hauling cars around the country.
    My second Grandson is 10 and he lives in BC so I haven't been able to introduce him to trains. There was one running around their Christmas tree this year so that may help.

    Charlie. I have 6 grandchildren. Two of them are into N scale model trains. The trouble is they live way back in Oklahoma and I haven't seen them in 3 years.

    Thanks everybody!
    I'm so pleased I'm about to bust!:D
    My other grandson lives about 800 miles from me, & I only get to see him a couple of times a year...:( But the new guy here...he's only about 3 or 4 miles from my house!
    Jesper,
    I got him an HO Thomas The Tank set before he was even born!:D His Mom says she'll keep it in the box for him until he;s old enough...:rolleyes: ...well, we'll just see about that! How about it guys? He looks old enough don't he? I'm ready to get it out now!!:D :p :D

    Congradulations to you and your family.
    You don't have the train set running yet? They're never to young (or old) for trains.
