    What could be wrong with the edible offal made from the stomach of various domestic animals? Lets not forget good old fashion head cheese (souse) either. That is what you feed your mother in law when she comes for a visit.:wave:

    [FONT=&quot]However I’m just a plain egg, sausage and potato man myself.

    My oldest daughter had her first track meet yesterday. She ran the 100 meter sprint. She was 5 feet from the finish line leading by nice margin and she fell. She would of broke the school record but instead managed to pick her self up to take last place. I don't ever think I felt so bad in all of my life. Freshman Jitters I guess. In any event I'm still a very proud dad. announce1

    I just finished installing decoders in an Athearn BB F7A and a new E6A. Tested them both and they run like champs, so I assigned them individual addresses and put them to work on the layout.

    Good evening everyone,

    Damp and cool day, Sat by the fireplace and watched a couple of old movies with the wife this afternoon. Didn't even have enough pep to run any trains.

    Visited the East Coast Large Scale show at York yesterday, nice show. I'm not into G, but like to look at all scales. Vermont club had a humongus layout & very nice. Looked like the venders were doing very well, lots of boxes being carried out the door.

    Take care.

    Good evening,

    Mikey, We were there from right after nine to about 11. When were you there? I was really impressed with the modular layouts, some very scale like and some more toy/tinplate style. I like them both.

    Going to the Museum tomorrow, trying to finish up the Weaver catalog before Summer gets here and the traffic gets bad around Strasburg.

    Glad to see the Chief is getting a little time off. That flying gets old after a while. My sister was telling me her flying tale today. She hadn't flown for a while and actually forgot about her metal hip implant. They practicly had her strip for the metal detectors both ways.

    Take care,

    Cheif what do you think about Okuma for the money in a reel?

    I have had one for a few yeatrs but havent gven it any real test for wear yet. I havent worn out my old green Penns.

    I am wondering how it will hold up in salt water on the OBX.
