    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,

    Well my daughter ran her second 100 meter sprint today and did a fine job at 13.8 seconds. I think she got her speed from running away from the barn chores.

    I did buy another MTH farm house the other day but I have been to busy getting the plow ready to try and beat the rain coming this weekend.

    Right now it is about 11pm and it has to be around 70, I can't believe it is going to snow this weekend in addition to the rain.

    Morning all. Tanker, the JD got oil and filter change, plugs and new blades. Yearly maintance and no repairs. :thumb:

    Guided wife's boss's kids at the pond [notice you Yanks, no ice]. His son's first fish ever.
    [​IMG]

    Caught nice crappie and blue gills.

    Speaking of weather. You Yanks are trying to invade us in the next few days. Cold coming and we have flowers and trees blooming. Keep your cold air.

    We mention form time to time about the software being slow here. No wonder. Probably a couple of hundred folks signed on just holding up space. If you are not using, sign off and then sign back on.

    Well, out the door as long as it is warm here. Later.
