    I am still alive.

    I got a nice gift in the mail tester day from an internet friend up north.

    They sent me a train book, a package of great RR paper, and an obscure HO engine.

    It made my day to say the least.

    We are off today to VA. for a check up and to have the stables removed after the surgery 3 weeks back.

    Afternoon. Had to go to Raleigh to get flu shot, run errands, get haircut and take food to lady who just got out of hospital. Shot the morning. In fact, I was up at 6:30 AM. Don't do that when I'm home. Usually 8:30 to 9 AM. I do stay up late. The rain forecast for midnight last night, changed to 5 PM today started at 11 AM. :rolleyes: Hope all have a great day and weekend.

    Who is giving out donuts for trick or treet?

    I am one of those guys who has to repaint everything he gets.

    Sometimes that works out, sometimes not.

    These did OK

    I have DASH 8 in stealth livery and I thought it would be an easy job to paint these in a similar fashion.
    I mostly modlel C&O however.

    Well HAPPY HOLOWEEN everybody.
    Cold and rainy here in TN, hope it stops before the kids come out.
    Ozzy, you can never have enough trains, He with the most wins.
    Gil, nice to see your doing better, nice paint jobs.
    Just an update the train room is just about done, we hung drywall this weekend.
    But the catch now is to keep the wife out, she already said the Xmas tree would look nice in the room and wants to pick the room color now..HMMMM

    West Virginia farmer got in his pickup and drove to a neighboring farm and knocked at the farmhouse door. A young boy, about nine, opened the door.

    "Is yer Pa home"? the farmer asked.

    No sir, he ain't," the boy replied. "He went into town."

    "Well," said the farmer, "Is yer Ma here"?

    "No, sir, she ain't here neither. She went into town with Pa."

    "How about your brother, Howard? Is he here"?

    "He went with Ma and Pa."

    The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.

    "Is there anything I can do fer ya"? the boy asked politely. "I knows where all the tools are if you want to borry one. Or maybe, I could take a message fer Pa."

    "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to yer Pa. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Pearly Mae, pregnant."

    The boy considered for a moment. "You would have to talk to Pa about that," he finally conceded. "If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $50 for the bull and $25 for the hog, but I really don't know how much he gets for Howard."
