Re: [z_scale] fionding my tools etc.
We are still here. Have a nice vacation and enjoy your family.
When it gets hot again just go for a swim in your warm ocean. That will
cool you off!
I had to go back to work again. My friend, who operates a retail
business, had to file his income tax return and needed help. Now I am
teaching his daughter how to keep books. I am lucky, she is eager to
learn and is very bright. I get paid for all this, but after taxes and
the gas to drive to his office, I keep very, very little.
For my 70th birthday I received some money. (What do you buy for a 70
year old man?) Bought myself a MT Santa Fe red warbonnet. Maybe I'll
buy a Santa Fe blue freight engine and I'll place an order for the new B
unit. I prefer Southern Pacific but I already have the Black Widow.
An SP Daylight Alco PA would be my No. 1 choice, but in that recent
poll for new American Z locomotives, all the other's voted for hood
So - at the summer home on the coast, sit in the sun, under the palm

It's good to hear from you. I hope that you are recuperating well. I know
what you mean about disappearing tools etc. I my case I usually plan to put
everything in the same place, then distractions occur and I end up cursing
the gremlins who have once again stolen my long nosed pliers or rasor saw or
Now that we are preparing to move next week, I have been discovering these
long lost items behind book cases or desks, under rugs and in drawers with
all sorts of interesting and long forgotten souvenirs.
Of course, once we get to our new apartment, everything will be lost and it
will take me 6 months to unpack and try and get my life back in some order!
As part of my state of wishfull thinking, I am packing everything I need to
hand lay my switches in one case to take with me on the trip to Toronto.
But just wait, I'm sure to forget it and the movers will pack it up
somewhere far far away!
Take care and enjoy the family visits this summer.
