Evenin' Folks!

Flo, I see you and the rst of the crew have started packing for the move already.  Is it too late to get dinner?  Oh good.  Then I'll have a hot roast beef sandwich with fries.  Lots of gravy on both if you would.  Yes I consider a dill pickle to be vegetable....  Don't forget a cup of decafe in my R7GV mug.  What?  It's packed, well then whatever mug you have handy then.  I'll go sit in the back for a bit.

Pulled apart the logging empire this afternoon....  Pried off a big hunk of 25 year old scenery and underneath was a pile of seeds that had been carefully split in two and the inside eaten....  I guess I know where the mouse I had down there a few years back ate his lunch.  Salvaged both the hand made stub end turnouts from way back when and have them saved.  Why?  I have no idea!  Guess it will something more for my sons to have to throw out after I'm gone......Whistling  I will need to buy another sheet of 3/8" plywood and cut it to fit in the hole the logging pike was in.  I may be able to get a 4' x4' section at the Home Value Store.  For a price they sell stuff like THAT.  I may decide a 4' x 8' sheet is a better deal.  I have no use for the other half sheet at the moment, but........

Sawyer, enjoy Spring Break!  Oh and good luck on all the tests tomorrow!

So who is supplying the switcher for the move?  How about the first person in after midnight?  Could be Ulrich?  Be a good chance to see how his loco works... Smile,Wink, & Grin  Maybe we could set an alarm clock for Duke and he can bring a....  what do they call them?   Ah, Berkshire!  THAT would be classy!

Oh well, I'll probably see what happened when I get up tomorrow morning.  Have to be at my son's house before noon.  I get to play, ah, sit for my granddaughters for a couple hours tomorrow.

Later!

[edit]  Whoo!  The dinner is underway and I haven't finished my decafe.  Good thing I have my train legs and know how to stay steady.  Yep Ulrich is trying out his new loco.  Powerful, really got her inder motion fast!  thank you Ulrich!
