I only know Loren (and yourself) via the list, but he appears to be a wonderful gentleman with a wicked sense of humor. I remember when the two of you were wed (did you meet via the list? Awesome story if so) and continue to be happy for the both of you. I remember also that you were from Alaska and that you model the Alaska Railroad. The White Pass and Yukon is one of my favorites; I'm a narrow gauger and am on the Z list because Nn3 uses Z scale chassis for it's locomotives. I model the EBT, several of their hoppers continue to be used on the WP&Y in MOW service.
As for the rest, I just get tired of hearing it. My miniature world is apolitical, I am the benevolent dictator and my little plastic people all love me! ;)
Apologies for the off-list reply, I didn't think it was appropriate for the list.
