    That's right, the GIF's aren't mine. They are available from here: http://www.frograil.com/gifs/gifs.htm You have to have a place to host them and be able to link to them. Just remember, you can't have over 500 characters in your signature. All I did was save them to my hard drive and then upload them to my photobucket account.

    Morning all. Software is dragging lately??? Hit reply and it takes for ever. Busy I guess. Great job on the F3. Gil, hope everything is OK by now. Had to leave buddy's and rush to hospital for Mom [90]. Not as serious as her hometown DR. made out. Probably bring her home [50 miles from me] tomorrow AM. Out the door to go there now. Have a good one.

    Morning all. Good Lord sure changed my schedule. On the road again to get Mom from hospital. Get her settled. She says she will be OK at home. Rush back this PM and get MIL [on the way back] and bring her to Rolesville. Wife and MIL are going to Youngest's for weekend. I will rest and run trains tonight [I HOPE]. Up early tomorrow AM for Town Board Retreat in Raleigh. That makes me miss the TCA train meet in Raleigh. :cry: Leave the retreat early so I can meet with son of widow lady who own's my pond lease. Hope to get first right of refusal on that property. Go check on Mom Sunday. Get hand operated on Monday [skin cancer removed]. Going to use that as excuse to rest Tuesday and Wednesday [run trains!!! :D ]. Fly to Orlando Thursday thru Sunday. Bass Pro Shops/ Cabela's circuit starts. Will be gone every Thursday thru Sunday from then until last of March and a few weeks in April. Hey, I'm retired!!!!!! :rolleyes:

    Have a g ood one.

    hey Chief,
    Sounds like you want to goof off some. Iused to until my uncle moved and sold his lake house on the lake with boat dock. One heck of a fishing hole. don't get sunburned down in Florida, remember water acts like a mirror.

    Morning all. Got to miss the TCA train meet for a Town Board retreat. :cry: :curse: Should tell them I am sick and go anyway. On my travels. Not gone to Canada to BPS. Have done Rogers, MN and Richfield, WI. Done and going to Bosie ID. Worked Detroit [Albun Hills] BPS. This year, Harrisburg PA will be as far north as I will go [so far] and Bosie the fartherest west. Did go to Pam Springs and San Diego for West Marine Dealer Show last year. Got most of my shows so I can drive a rental for this year. Got 40,000+ miles with US Airways in two years and I fly others too. Trying not to fly so much this year. Cold here this AM. Got to run trains as I cleaned my rifle real good from the ohter day's shooting. Had not had time as running up and down the highway with Mom in hospital [90]. Got her home and doing OK yesterday PM. Now I have surgery on my right hand on Monday. Got a skin cancer the size of a dime and getting real tall. Be glad to get that out. Now to the real coffee pot. Later.

    Morning everyone. 17 degrees out, at least it's above zero! As I type, CSX is going through the back yard, looks like mixed freight with a HLCX unit on the head end. Started to plan the BIG layout for the second floor of the garage, may not come to fruition for a few years, but I have to have a plan don't I? :D That just leaves more time for a diorama or a small layout in the basement. :thumb: Gotta run, have a good one....
