    My brother is a fire fighter, 25 + years as a valonteer and 20 years as a professional paramedic.

    He owns a motor cycle also.

    He is my own personal hero but God forbid he should no it.

    I am sorry for your lose.

    I made this Weaver kit today and half the screws, ect were missing. Epoxy holds anything, LOL.

    It is drying now, giving of fumes as it were, if I had 19 more I would be set.

    I am growing into scale one car at a time.

    I think I over weathered it but cant think how to undo it abd keep the lettering intact

    Hey Gil

    That hopper looks just right!! I wouldn't touch it. I've seen (real) hoppers where the lettering was all but invisible....

    Morning all. Where is the breakfast [got editied???]? This thing was moving and then suddenly, sloooow. Hopper looks like some I've seen around. Usually in the movies, they are pretty but then you look at a real train, well. Have a good one.

    Oh man Tony... Make sure you get everything settled, before they start work. They only will do what's on the contract. Everything else is a "Change order" :(

    Chief, I've been trying to find the time to do some more design work on my "Repair pit challange building.. but I'm still trying for later today.. :)

    . And I brought the donuts :D :D

    i noticed today the guys who cut my grass busted the latch to the back gate. It is chain link.

    I dont mind at all it being broken but the guy tried to make it look un broken.
    It was in tqo peices.

    I put a cable lock on it and I guess if I am not home he can jump the fence.

    The fellow who owns the service is a great guy and we are pals but he has differnt parolees every time.

    I wish he would get some Mexicans. , I am kidding, sort off.

    well since there is no coffee and donuts this morning come on over to my cabin and I'll cook breakfast.
    Its another wet day down here in TN. You can tell we are getting primed for fall and if this is any indication I cant wait.
    Have a good day, TONY:D

    Afternoon. FINALLY got here. Been trying all morning. Was taking so long to get to teh Caboose, I'd click off and go on. Got here this time by clicking and walking off and doing other things. Come back, click again and leave. The got to the reply screen and it flew. ?? Hot and humid. Storm might bring us lots of rain. We need rain but not wind. Have a good one. Too late to go to the cabin for breakfast but how about lunch. I'm starving.

    Well we finally got some rain here over the last couple of days. The cold front broke our latest string of 19 straight 100+ degree days. Yesterday we had half the day of nice easy soaking rain.

    A nice day for tomorrow with a high of 90 and starting at 67 in the am!

    Have a great day tomorrow all!
