    Twenty Gauge members took the time to enter a photo in the January Photo Contest. :thumb: If all 20 of them have already voted for their favourites, then only an additional 28 Members have bothered to cast their ballot(s). :( Thanks to those that have taken the time to do so, but this is a pretty dismal turnout, especially considering the great selection of photos that you have to choose from. You can vote for one, or a few, or even all, and you don't even have to get off your seat to do so. C'mon folks, your vote is also a show of appreciation for those who have taken the time to enter. Here's a link to the voting thread; click on the names to see the pictures, and click on the box(es) to cast your vote:

    Jan. 07 vote for your favorite pictures

    And after you've done your duty here, you might want to post an entry in the February contest. Here's a link, in case you're all tuckered out from voting: :rolleyes: :D

    Hah, Feb already. How about your new paint job or road?

    Just remember, this isn't a "Contest" contest, it's just a good opportunity to participate in the Gauge and share your work with other Members.

    Just cast my vote.
    Although it was a really tough choice with all the top notch pics to choose from.
    There are some very tallented people on this forum. :cool:

    Don't it seem the same way every month? lol. Patience, though. and your little nudge is definitely respected :)

    but seriously - man, I never really knew how many things I could have on my list of "things to do" until I bought a house. I'd have had a perfect photo for the january contest, but my stuff was still in boxes and didn't have the time to get it out. And this months? Well, I'll submit something if I get time to finish my latest project! But before then, there is the business trip for work, the roof that needs fixing, The bathroom window that I am going to replace with glass block, the bathroom vent fan I need to install, the tree I need pruning, the car that needs a new crankshaft and a quarter panel replaced... I sure envy my dad who retired a few months ago. He recently got the truck I learned to drive on running again...

    Hey, Kevin, retirement isn't necessarily all that it's cracked up to be: I spent almost 7 months last year doing a house renovation, (10 - 12 hour days, although I am a slow worker :D ) and when that was done, helped out on a kitchen reno for my older daughter. Now, I'm building a desk for my younger daughter. Sheesh! Build just one house for yourself, and everybody thinks that you like doing this kind of stuff! :rolleyes:
    I'm having difficulty getting back into "training", too. I'm working on rebuilding/repainting a dozen freight cars to try to get back into the railroading mood, but it's been slow going. :cry: Coming up, six major loco rebuilds, most of which have been sitting around for more than two years. I got more done around here when I was still working for a living!

    Nice to see some fresh voting action, especially since the server seems particularily slow today. :thumb: Keep those votes comin', folks.
