    Hi gang, I decided I couldn't take the snow and ice another day and headed south. Just wanted to let you know I probably won't be posting everyday for a week or so but things are fine.

    Clever secret identity Tyson! :) Thanks for letting us know that your absence is only due to Snow birding! Good for you. I'm envious. Winter has been late catching up with the St. Paul area but finally did with a vengence. I need an undisclosed location to go to!

    Warm regards!
    Ralf :D

    Having consluted with Madam Olga the local psychic:eek: I have been told by her that she is receiving images of palm trees, surf and perhaps Mickey Mouse:D :D :D She also said that she gets a very clear image of someone having a drink with an umbrella in it and that this person also has his feet proped up on a wooden crate labeled "The Box":D :D :D :D

    Enjoy yourself Tyson...we miss you but stay until it warms up if you want to....:) :) :) :) :)

    Actually guys the only reason for Ty instead of Tyson is it wouldn't let me use that name from this computer cause it was already being used and I'm not bright enough to figure out how to get around it! :D Rockislandmike that looks just like my place back in N. Carolina! Pete, I gave Dick your message and he said Hi back at you! :D Charlie right now it's 55 and raining, but that beats 25 and snowing (which it is doing right now back home). Vic you are close, I drove past Mickey to get here. Here being Cocoa, Fla. where it should be 76 and sunny tomorrow :D :cool: :) :D ! However no sign of the "box".

    Have a good holiday Tyson.

    Shows you how numb my brain is --- in three weeks I leave nice, sunny, and reasonably warm Southern California, to mess around in the slush of Europe in March......

    I must have forgotten what wet and cold feet really feel like.

    Hey Ty,

    Soak up all the sun you want. Things are not changing much on the east coast. It is snowing again today.

    :) :)

    You gonna come by and try ta' see me!?

    Oh... I just looked at a map of where it is... never mind.:(
    I'm still another two hours below Tampa/St. Petersburg.

    If you want to try the club their in Largo (by Clearwater).
    Hmmm... That's about two hours from Orlando... Rats!

    Oh well... Let me know.:D

    I also hear, and saw pics, of the N-Trak Club in Orlando.
    Nice people great work. Course... Some of'em work at Disney
    Studios in Props and Effects. Slight unfair advantage...;) :p
    Check for Colonial Photo & Hobby; that's the shop.
    And it has a SWEET looking C&O Turbine Steam on the wall.
