Hey Tom:
Have you found any of those old FSM and SRMW kits I left under the layout a couple of years age?  ;D   
They went in the Ledbetter Charity waste basket that's headed to Arkansaw!   ;D ;D ;D

The Ledbetters sure are making out on deals lately!

Greg,

Why yes, funny you should mention that. I found a couple of them but sold them to Jaime for $16.00 each!

tom,

Looks like your demo has resulted in Christmas every day. It's amazing what you find under the layout!!! Been under my layout and have found all kind of misc things that I had totally forgotten about. Now I just have to decide what to do with them!!! Having seen your layout, I am in awe that you are making this change. That being said, I think that the new project will be even more awesome. I sure hope that you get a lot of help or consider full retirement, because you are chewing off the butt end of an elephant with this new project. :) :) :)
Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year to you and Pam. My wife and will be celebrating our 34th tomorrow (Sunday). time flies when your having fun.

Frank,

The word is out! Next October is my full retirement from all the semi-retirement jobs if not sooner. That elephant sure has a tough hide, butt (LOL) I'm chewing a little each day! Hope you and the Mrs have a wonderful and safe New Years.

Morning all,

It's going to be a rainy one here today! That means plenty of modeling, er, in my case, plenty of demolition.

Something up with the 4:30AM awakening? I was up at 4:30AM but rolled over and stayed in bed until 8:00AM.

Have a great day!

Interesting idea, very interesting. I like the "let's not get carried away with rules" - I got a bad feeling about the last forum contest!

And where is my old smiley face? I feel lost without it!

Tom,

Okay, I was trying something but it  didn't work.

When removing this portion of the old layout I forgot I had stuff under the layout and stuff behind stuff that was under the layout. I found an old scented candle, a dead moth, an HO scale broom and a piece of wire insulation.

I also found three railroad signs I forgot I had and I found more old Floquil paints.

This is the area where the old work bench was located.

I've been posting this demolition on the kitforums forum with a little more narrative. I'm waiting here to be able to post the photos in the correct placement of the thread. Anyway, here are a few more with a little bit more information in the thread.

Anything that ends up in that big waste basket can go in the Ledbetter Charity Christmas Package to be shipped to Arkansaw!  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Gman,

The package is in the mail! I'm sending it via the Leadbetters choice of trasportation - a donkey with a small sail!

Robert,

Didn't I read somewhere on this forum where you are working on being able to place our photos in the correct position of our threads. Now, we can only post them at the end.

Morning all,

Welcome Bart, happy to see you over here.

My plan for the day is to just be as lazy as I can and do pretty much of nothing. Just chilling after the last two days! Mrs. Santa was very good to me!

Greg, we still doing lunch?

Have a great day!

Tom,

I received an email with the proposed layout design from Greg. Good start, but you know me, I have some suggestions. I'll be working on them this week and give them to john when he get here next week. I just get the willies when i see a layout being torn down. When i moved many years ago, my neighbor and I took my old layout apart. All i  can say, it was not fun. you just have to keep saying to yourself that the new layout will be better and I am sure that your new layout will be awesome.
Happy Holidays.

Frank / Erieman

Frank,

I understand the willies. I had them for three months before I ever told anyone what my plans for the new year were going to be concerning the layout.

Mery Christmas to you and Phyllis my friend.

Tom
