Welcome back! Come in, the stove is on and hot coffee and tea is available. Sad, shouldn't it be a glass of cold lemonade or iced tea by May 11th? Bah! Lets see how we did this past weekend. Saturday: With the last turnouts set up, I did something I have not done in a while. I set up a few cars and fired up my B&M GP-9 #1715 and did some switching. That little GP I detailed and custom painted way back in 2004 sure runs great and I had very little stalling and zero derailments. I fired up my new Atlas GP38-2 with sound and was immediately impressed. I need more of these! Sunday: Was of course Mother's Day. The day was dark, cloudy and only 48 degrees. Normally I would take Angela out for Mother's Day but we are still on lock down at least until the end of May, maybe June. Since I could not take her out, I brought the restaurant to her. I spent the most time making a menu for "WIGGIN STEAK HOUSE" then cooked some Rib eyes on the smoker with Hickory wood, baked potatoes, sweet dinner roles and desert. All of this was served with some good ole Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra playing softly in the back ground. It was a success and she thanked me for my efforts. That said, not much modeling done on this cold Mother's Day. So how about you? Did you stay warm? My native state saw snow. Yup, pretty pathetic for "spring" but there is hope. When we meet again on Friday the 15th, the weather is supposed to be WARM! 73 in fact. Maybe I can finally plant my garden. Until then however, stay warm, be safe, stay healthy and as always... High Greens!
