Carl, wow a Monday morning unlike any other. You said you have extra time . . . well! I finally learned to do a short opening post.

Ed, thank you for the complement. One of our members lives off Lithia-Pinecrest Road.

Ted, aye-aye matey.

Frank, Das Boot was a great movie, it was on TV again not too long ago.

Mike now I have to live up to those words!

Bill, no this one is strictly a Dave project all Iím doing is a couple of minor pieces.

David, well itís Dave Revelia thatís going to lead the way, Iím only a bit player.

Frank

Frank,
I live in Fish Hawk Trails which borders Lithia Pinecrest.
A customer of mine has a business in Richloam (Richloam General Store). He wants someone to do a diorama of his store and the railroad and depot that was there in 1936. He has already written a book on the subject. He has the store and a sign business in the same building. Tracks and depot gone, but he has pictures. I sent the picture to my good friend Carl Laskey. I don't mean to be too forward, but if you know someone who would have interest, kindly let me know. I know he is willing to compensate the person who does the work. He is a very nice man. He wants to cover it and place it in the store. I apologize if I am over stepping. Not my intention.

thanks. with Verlinden out of production it's only going to increase in price. the cabin which you made really adds much over the kit provided one.

Thanks Chester.

Southpier, I donít know how much it will increase in price, I donít think itís not one of those sought after pieces.

Jerry, you back from the beach? Dave is struggling with remembering how to post pictures, lossapictaphobia I think itís called.
