    Gil - good to hear that your rehab is going well. You are still in our prayers.

    N-Gauger - good luck on the sales, I very seldom find train things at them. :cry:

    Next I go to court then after a year to 18 months I get my explosives handlers permit back, union card and my demolition licence and can start making that big money.

    The only thing that wories me is the shaking in my hands and blurred vision from the meds I take now.

    I would not want to make that mistake and blow up an other private residence again.

    I have fixed tires by putting a patch inside the tire and running a radial tube

    where the temp is 65 deg and heading to 75 with rain on the way. :cry:

    N-Gauger - What I have done is pick up some HO (sames to be alot of that out there at sales) and then later trade it for some 'O' Guage stuff, and that works for me. :D

    BTW - I have never had good luck on a radial tire with a side wall puncher. Best bet is to replace the tire. :curse:

    Morning all. Great meal last night. Cooked 30 chicken halves and 10 breasts on big cooker. Folks really ate. Off to early Church and Sunday School. More rain to come [I hope]. Pond is still down with the 1.25 inches we got Friday night/Saturday morning. Later and God bless.

    where the temp is 58 deg and headed to 68 deg with overcast skies and rain shows in the area.

    Today we are hoping to make it to the county park where the live steamers run on 7.5" track. They have several miles of track thru the woods and offer free rides for use of the land. :thumb: Let's hope the weather corpoterates and provides some sunshine :D

    Morning all. DANG, thought I had slipped one by. Didn't get to revisit the forum yesterday. Thanks for the good wishes. Had a lazy day. Well, sort of. Had to finish cleaning up from the party. Cleaned the pig cooker and stored it under the boat/tractor.equipment shed. "Scratched" in the garden and "sidedressed" some plants. Then watched TV and ate more chicken and popcorn. Got another good rain last night and this AM. :) Will run trains until grass dries [if it does] and then mow. Work on the extra trainroom too. God bless all.

    Morning. Tom, your picture reminds me. I sure hope Lionel will keep producing the low profile switches that K-Line had. They are the way to go with tublar track. Had a little shower of rain this AM. Off to Raleigh in a little while to have lunch with Frankie and then back by Miss Edna's [Todds Train Deopt] to drop off some squash. Later
