Hard to believe isn't it? Why does my favorite time of the year go by so fast? Well to many, the Labor Day weekend is the bookend to the summer season, but it does signal cooler days and a new season of train related activities. Let's see how we are all starting off. Saturday: A tradition with Angela and her Dad that I missed last year, the annual Hoopston Sweet Corn festival. We'll get up early and head to her home town for an afternoon of a classic car show, fair like atmosphere, fried food and yes of course, sweet corn. Her Dad will have his Mustang at the car show so we'll hang out with him then head to his place after the show to enjoy some much needed down time. Sunday: It is supposed to rain here and we'll have domestic things that must be done. I'm hoping to get to my favorite hardware store to get a few supplies I need for my B&M layout. Work on the layout is going smoothly. I was able to start laying down the track to fix my earlier blunder and hope to have that done by Sunday. With the arrival of my new to me Atlas HO B&M GP7, I may even try to build a FreeMo module or two. We'll see. Labor Day: It really depends on the weather, I'm sure a cook out will be in order. I really want to finish a gas station I started last year for the B&M layout. It is an older City Classics Brass walled service station. I would like to get it painted and ready for decals so it is done for the Decatur Train Fair. So how about you? What do you have planned for this unofficial end of summer? Let us know. We'll come back on Tuesday, September 3rd, to see how we all did. Until then, have a happy, safe and hopefully fun Labor Day extended weekend and as always... High Greens!
