    Morning all - thanks for the heads - up about Phoenix. I'm only there three days. I guess I am officially far out of town - somewhere with the fake-sounding name of Carefree, AZ. LOL.

    Anyone going to watch basketball tomorrow and Monday?

    Back from the scout orienteering trip - Went with my friend Dave and our sons. He and the boys hiked without me, luckily they came back! All this rain and yep, mud all over the woods and stuff - who would have guessed? One lady was really mad about it - dah?

    Trout fishing and a fire with burgers and dogs? Sounds like a nice day to me!

    Feet don't hurt so I'm doing good! I'll be back later, but wanted to say Happy Birthday to Carter, TomPM and to Sir James' son and daughter!

    Doug - I'm sure your doing your research about Carefree, it used to be just a small spot in the road. And mostly a haven for travel trailers accommodating snow birds. Wait till you see all the retirement communities. Definetly make sure you get down to Scottsdale. You should have an enjoyable trip, hope you have time to see a little of the area. Just remember do not stick your hand or foot anywhere you cant see.

    Bride back...Really enjoyed dinner out and a concert yesterday...Funny...She was in England in the am, and returned home to see a Choir from Cambridge, England.

    Laz: Trout fishing by day, and Burgers for dinner??? :eek:

    Brutus: Glad you had a good time on the trail...Maybe next time you should hike somewhere with paved trails....:cry: I'm sure her son enjoyed the mud!

    RT: Great News on the job, and selling your home!

    Good Morning All
    We have a beautiful sunday morning:thumb: I've waited about 14 months for a day like today. I know but it seems that long. I forgot to mention that the lionel dealers have or will receive the 2008 christmas catalog. Mostly the same as in the past. The nutcracker crossing guard will be santa this time which is who it should have been all along. Enjoy your sunday,,,S.J.

Sad day for the NRA and everyone. Have a good one. OH Doug, Lzydays [who is on this forum and use to drop in here] lives in Phoenix. Love that city and the airport is good too. Fly US Airways.

    RIP - Chuck Heston. Seemed like a great guy to me. :(

    Well, I was just talked out of buying a tmcc set on ebay and then got an email that I won it? LOL $69 for the base and controller plus a book etc. NOW I need to find a tmcc locomotive -- I'm sure the bride will understand!

    Kurt - this is TOTALLY your fault! LOL

    What I really want it Chief, Laz or somebody to explain to me which upgrade board the HWX needs and then go from there!

    Guess I will have to find something nice for my wife now, to smooth the deal over!

    Jeffrey, all I had was a poptart... :oops:

    Cool engine, Tom!

    CONGA on the Cab 1 system. Great price. If you are to upgrade your Hogsworth X I think you could do it with a motherboard from TAS? I'd call them here is the site....
    Lionel Trainmaster Command System Upgrades from Train America Studios!

    Hope that works for you. You can do it or send it out to them, but will take about 8 weeks for turn around. I had them do 2 engines for me. They are good. Good Luck.
