Irony and Nostalgia
Posted by Jefe on Monday, December 2, 2019 9:20 AM

The other day I drove down to Pinellas Park Fl to buy some scenery stuff for the Christmas layout. I purchased what I needed and then shortly after leaving I drove past the new location of H&R Trains and Toys Inc.  So, what the heck.  I stopped in to have a look around and as I was leaving I noticed their backdrops on display above and behind the checkout counter.  One in particular caught my eye. It was titled "Small Town" and made by Realistic Backgrounds.  What caught my eye was this.  It was a photgraph of the town where I was born and raised and further, the house where we lived when I was born was included in the backdrop.  The store owner and I were photographed outside the store with me holding the poster and pointing to my old home. I don't intend to use it on the layout. I've already begun machinging a frame for it to be in my study

What an incredible, great story!  Looks like "someone" whispered in your ear and convinced you to stop. 

Who says there's no Christmas miracles?
