    Morning all. Back in NC. WI weather was better than NC. Suppose to change this week and we get warmer and they get cold. Congrats Gramps. Nice looking kid. Must take after its Grandmother. ;) Had great flights but US Airways destroyed my new roller bag. How?????? Got to call them this AM. Meeting with County Commissioners this afternoon so no trains. Reports to do. Home for a while. :thumb: Hope to get layout work done. Have a good one.

    Here's my weekend accomplishments

    Got three new DPM buildings built and placed on temporary streets/sidewalks, fixed and repainted one turret building twice. Cut a new sliding door in the blue transfer building and built a loading dock, added an entrance door with stairs and false inside walls for later interior modeling. Added speed limit and other trackage signs, and weathered the couplers on rolling stock and diesels.

    Things I learned from all this: (1) Painting a detailed brick Nscale building is hard. (2) Glueing Nscale buildings square is harder. Reading the directions would have cut down on a lot of frustration and re-work (see 1 & 2). If you cut wrong with an Xacto knife - make a sliding door to cover up the mistake!

    All in all, not a bad weekend in cool North Carolina.

    I am sorry.

    Here to save me some thinking and writing is what went on.It is a reply by me to an email.

    :


    Here is a copy of the email I sent Carl, Fish Bro.

    I am not up to writing a lot. Know you understand.

    Why did you decide to go through this without painkillers?


    Because I am a tuff son of a bitch and it being a year now without a drink it seemed to the thing to do. I might switch addictions.

    They keep me on something there akin to angle dust. I want no part of it.


    Thanks for asking and caring.

    This simple operation went south from the get go. I was to stay one night and stayed a week.

    They said my heart was in danger as were my kidneys my K level was thru the roof. The hernia was 3 not one and many times larger than expected. ( size of a foot ball) I was holding litters of fluid they said was not there before the start.

    Back to bed

    Thank s for asking.
