    Today I saw four pulp wood flats on the CSX in the yards at Charley West.

    I get a real thrill as I have been making log cars in several gauges all winter for C&O use.

    Chief the tunnel ports are from MTH. I really like the looks of them. The Lionel ones have the big L in the middle of them.

    Work has now turned to landscaping the custom layout.

    I have gained 30 pounds since the first of December stopping at the Go Mart for a large coffee and a pack of Gems donuts.

    I do it 3 days a week and eat luch there.

    I will be finished with this therapy the first of June and maybe I can scrink a bit.

    The hospital in Va. just called and said the good news is my liver biopsy is the same with no change as the one in March however in March it looked bad.

    The said lose wieght and keep working on my blood sugar.

    I dont know what to make of it.

    Thanks guys, it seems Micky D's is helping to.

    The wife came in with breakfast from there and they left half of what she paid for out of the bag. So what else is new?

    Where is Jr. with those donuts? Even Crusty Creme Donuts would be welcome now.

    where the temp is 52 and headed to 62 with more rain. What a surprise! :rolleyes:

    Hope all the Mom's had a great day. We did the cooking and launder for ours.

    We are into the last day of finishing this layout.

    The rest of the trees (we bought a forest) will be mounted after we move the layout to its new home tomorrow.
