    It was a great weekend, but two shows in the same month tire`s one out.

    Anyway it was fun and again we met up with old friends and made some new ;)
    One little boy came and his Mum said he loved our L/O so we had him around our side alowing him to take his pictures, I think we enjoyed that as much as the Lad :D

    Well, Chris, looks you you didn't get any embarassing photos of me!
    I did get looked up by one of the members of trains.com.
    I spent the weekend making a card building from a new manufacturer, and wasn't pleased with the way it went. (No names will be divulged.) I also took Jimmy Brown around and introduced him to a number of people.
    And I have a sore back from being hunched over in those rotten chairs at those tables.

    Yes I can relate to the sore back, we were very tired by the end of the day, at least we can go walk about more than you David.
    If you remember my Camera died on me before I could get those embarassing photos of you.
    Next time i`ll get you for sure. :thumb:
