    Those of you with an "Orchard Supply Hardware" where you live should go grab one of their 2003 calenders. You'll get a dozen 8x10" paintings by Larry Fisher on heavy gloss paper suitable for framing and hanging in the ol' trainroom. (Or wherever) These are NICE! You're welcome, and Happy New Year! :D :cool:

    I got one for 2002 and the pictures of those engines are fabulous.
    I highly recommend getting the 2003 if it is anything like the 2002

    I don't know what the outcome will be, but I asked for a copy to be mailed to me by going to http://www.osh.com/ They are not offering to send them out, but I grovvelled, which might work.

    hope it works

    Yeah Jon, I did a little butt kissing and got the same response as you did. Sure hope it works, I was looking for some ducks in my attic today (don't ask) and came across a train calander from '84 I think full of great black & white photos of loco's, lots of shays and such. Later Jim

    Got three today without any question. The guy behind me even laughed when he heard me explain to the clerk why I wanted that many.

    Duck! <quack> Duck! <quack> NO, I MEAN DUCK!!! <splat>

    Ducks in the attic will drive most anyone crazy. All of that QUACK QUACK QUACKing and stomping around on the rafters with their webbed feet...:mad: Then when you've finally had enough and climb up there to do something about it, they run and hide. Crazy ducks...

    Don't worry...I'm not going to ask! :)

    I had followed Jon-Monon's lead and requested a calendar. It arrived here yesterday via Airborne Express. Boy are those paintings excellent. They're going to be great for framing.

    Thanks for the tip everyone. I hope everyone else who has one is enjoying it.
