    Night shift report: just got back from the setup night at the Great British Train Show. My impression is that it's a tad more crowded than before -- have we got more layouts? The Indian one certainly has expanded from a straight line to a loop.
    May be too tired to post tomorrow.

    Hey gang, Jr. the cofee smells good at the drive in.

    Cool here in the Hillbillies Paradise this day at noon.

    I am going this minute to the big flea market for a new ist Nation Confederate flag for the pole by the pole. The old one faded.

    I got a palm in the mail yesterday from a dear old friend in Florida from her yard. It survived Katrina. I hope it will survive me, ha ha ha .

    You Yankees have a good'un now, hear?

    Here at the "big mall" they knocked the Golden Arches down" it is a million and a half dollar pile of dirt.

    Since Krispy Cream is almost out of bussiness now they wount be putting one there.

    My old worn out kdneys hurt, I wish they had knocked then down also when I had my transplant. They actualy leave the old ones in.

    I may set up the floor tain in a bit.

    I want to dig out my box cars for some color.

    Have a good week you all.

    I feel my age today.

    I see a brew-ha-ha is growing by the hour, nay, the minute over the TCA and the Trackers on an unnamed forum operated by an O Gauge Magizine on the web.sign1



    That is pretty typical when that subject come up.stooges8 stooges8

    Gil - I can't believe that thread. Either you play by thier rules in thier house or find a new house to be in. Maybe that is the answer, having a new house for that show.

    Work is coming along well on the custom layout at the museum. Not much to show for all the sanding, and wiring.

    On the History Internation Channel, Voyagers has Trains Unliminted on today, Trans- Canadian RR.

    Look what I saw on the way home yesterday

    Gil - sounds like you are having a neighbor war starting.

    Chief - when are you going to find time for your trains.

    JR - looks like good eats.

    Sure am glad that I planted the garden when I did. Yesterday we even got the grass cut, as it might rain tomorrow.

    Jr - the donuts look great, I just might have to go and get a dozen today.

    Chief - good to see you back in town. This layout is coming along great :thumb:
