Morning Larry and others,

No modeling for me yesterday. Spent the day with the Babe running more errands. Today I get to pick up my lawn mower after six weeks in the repair shop. Lucky me.

Have a safe day ya'll.

Morning all,

Okay, here's my story. The Babe and I went to the grocery store this morning. I needed to get something not far from the end and I was going the way of the arrow. After retrieving my item, I reversed course and left the isle against the arrow. An old geezer, about my age, said, "Didn't you see the arrow"? I said, "No, I didn't even see the Indian"!

Have a safe day ya'll.

Nice Tom. Great woodwork on the docks...and level, as always!


John


John,

Thank for stopping by and for the compliment on the docks. This is a fun build. I have so many ideas for scratch building but I'm not sure they'll all get attention.

Hey Tom:

This looks really good so far. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I love dock scenes. The 2 Campbell docks and buildings that go with them was one of my favorites. I built it many years ago and donated it to one of the Model RR clubs around here.

Karl,

I hope to finish the docks with in the next week, no promises. I built that entire Campbell series as well and it was a lot of fun. Sold it to another modeler some 30+ years ago.

Jeff,

I was building a small station that Jimmy D. offered as a kit. Bill Satore, Slim, on the forum, offered a small LED lighting kit for the station. I partially built a second station and then set it on fire. I kept a spray water bottle handy to put out the fire after it burned the roof and some of the walls.

Slim, to this day, only smiles but never admitted to the fun. I did admit to setting it on fire and enjoyed all of the adventure. Jimmy panicked and forgot all about LEDs only burning out and not catching on fire. It was a great hoax. Jimmy appreciated the fact we pulled one over on him and he sent me the award shown below. After that, Jimmy changed my Forum name to Fire Starter and that lasted for several months and finally he gave me my ACL1504 back.

Hard to believe it has been ten years!

Tom ;D

Morning all,

My parents had a Magnolia tree in the front yard, actually off to the side. It was about 60 ft. high.  It was a great climbing tree and very healthy. We moved from that house in 1967 and the tree is still there and even taller.

The Judge and I are going to Claire Miller's house to get more of Jim's railroad stuff. Then we'll catch some lunch somewhere.

Have a safe day ya'll.

Morning all,

Yes, a sore back isn't any fun. I worked several hours in the yard yesterday and I certainly feel it this morning.

Have a safe day ya'll.
