Last couple of weeks have been a blur but got back yard sod patched, flower beds cleaned up and patio fountain put back together. Drove to daughter's in Vienna VA this afternoon so we can attend grand daughter's dance recital in the morning and a dinner tomorrow night. Back to Ocean View Sunday. I am ready for bed!

A great model Larry. Excellent.
It is 6:45 am Monday morning here at the Museum. It became rather busy here during the latter half of last week so didn't follow up on more posts.
Friday was a public holiday here in Ipswich so I had made plans for work at home to no avail. . My daughter phoned my other half early regarding more work being done in her new kitchen and her having to take one of the grandson's to a specialist. "Don't worry" she who must be obeyed tells her. "Your father has the day off today so he can come down and supervise while you go out to do what you have to".
So I spent the day trying to watch TV but the noise of saws and drills always occurred during the interesting bits.
The weekend was just as bad as one of my fellow rail historians came over and we spent some more time going through more of the deceased estate book collection occupying our garage.
I haven't had time yet to make a cup of coffee at work but will do so now. Guaranteed fresh so please join me while "I boil the billy".

Larry, The critter looks Great. I have one along with a Backwoods kit in my someday pile.

Well, today we put the house on the market. A photographer came out and took photos of all the rooms for the realtors web site. I was quite surprised that he took this photo and they included it.

Roland, all you need is a couple of ON30 guys to see the listing and you will have a bidding war with a conditional offer to leave the RR.

Morning everyone. It is 6:45 am Thursday here at the Museum and only 52 days to go before I finish work - but who's counting
I tried to post a couple of images of the only On30 layout at the recent model railway show here in Brisbane but the system would not accept them so will try again from home. Thought it might be the way I had named the image but changing it didn't work either.
Recently, I had commented I could not see images on my work computer from other posters on this forum rather a "X" in a black square. However, I found that I could see the images at my home computer???
I think I need a cup of coffee. Please join me in the staff lunch room for a cup.

Best Regards

Someone needs to go fishing for Geezer.

Dave, check your mail for my e-mail address and let me try to post your pictures. I suspect that I know what your issue is but this way I can confirm.

Boy, am I loving that workspace. Maybe some unsuspecting closet railroader will give into the dark side... Good looking layout.

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Wow, I was away for a couple of days and the room exploded! Thanks for coffee, David.
Roland, that's a nice-looking train room! Does it dismantle easily?
Larry, That is a great job on the critter.
My weekend was devoted to a nice day-long motorcycle ride through the Fraser Valley (a wonderful 27 deg C), then on Tuesday it was spent washing windows, cleaning out koi pond, and optometrist for glasses. My evening was going to be for model trains when the huge windstorm knocked out the power in the afternoon and it didn't come back on until this morning. Ugh!
There's always the next day....
Cheers,
Dave

Hi. Well it was a lot easier than we thought. We have a signed contract on the house less than 48 hrs after we put it on the market. As far as the layout goes I hope I designed it right. It should come apart in sections with very little damage, It will go into a storage unit until we are moved into the new place then reassembled and damage repaired. I hope. The new room it will go in is larger than what I have now, but the layout will stay the same size. Mrs Hopeless says she needs access to the closet. Women can be so unreasonable. Also the retirement center will completely remodel the cottage. They asked if we wanted anything else and I said I would like the room painted sky blue and recessed lighting installed. They said No Problem.I can't wait to get going again.

Roland great looking layout and room. Congrats on the contract--2 days is unbelieveable. When we sold the house 2.5 years ago it took 2 weeks and that's after the neighbor next door took 18 months. We were real happy.

Crashing Geezers Lounge today as it's been awhile for me. Here's one to Geezer!
