    good morning everyone! Its 30, supposed to stay there today. My grandson loved the new bench work. He would stop the train near the tank transporter say he had stuff for the Army guys, then at the elevator to get "stuff" there, then he would run the train the the Christmas houses saying I have to be in Fergus (a town near us) on time......he's 3.

    Grandkids are great!

    Morning all. Up early. Had great day at the lake. Nose started running when I was pitting up the boat last night. Woke up early this AM with cold [again]. Going to do some work on layout today but Dr's apt at 1 [Dermatologist]. Starbucks in the pot now so I will drink some. Tanker, email me at and I will email you my layout plan [put something in the title about my layout plans as it might go to Spam folder]. It is in O but might give you some ideas. Mostly 072 curves and switches [a couple 054]. All have a good one.

    Good Morning all. It's close to 30 supposed to get near 40 today! Got my "new" engines yesterday, 2 UP Sw1500s and a GP40 BN! They run nice for being older "used" engines.

    ezdays Out AZ way

    40's going on high 60's to mid-70's. Typical desert weather. Looking for rain this weekend, but we've been looking for that now for close to three months. :rolleyes: El Nino is suppose to change that this coming year. Typically we're looking at around 10" of rain a year. The wettest year in history in the Phoenix area was around 16". That doesn't happen that often, but it's something to look forward to for 2007.:thumb:

    Home again. Did some great shooting. Cut center out of target with Ruger 10/22 and then same with .17. Next project is to install the "sniper scope" on the .17. It is shot in at 100 yards and goes out to 300 yards. Automatically conpensates for bullet drop. Still got this cold. Warm here today [70]. Got to get going. Have a good one.
