    It's been a busy year for you Paul! Glad to see you back posting. That shower tile for the wall looks great along with all the rest of the work on the house. The truck is super nice too. (y)

    It's more than I was looking to spend if am being honest, but it's absurd out there - a 6yr old pickup with 100k costs maybe $5-7k less than a brand new one. I can't say I understand it. Good news is I've put 5k on it in the last 7mos so it should last me a good while at this rate hahaha

    well, interesting milestone in the progression of this project of mine - got a decent bonus check from making Lowe's a ton of money last month, so added a little to it to buy the last of the Unitrack that I needed. But the big thing is I was able to buy all 8 Kato power packs and adapters for my layout, which means for the first time since I even started thinking about things, I will have power for all of my trains.

    I guess I have to quit piddling around and get that room ready now, eh? :coffee: Will be a little while yet before that happens, but that's a pretty big hurdle to clear. Am pretty stoked about having that expense out of the way, finally.

    I can see it now; you, in the cockpit of your layout, with an arc of power packs before you, furiously flittering amongst the levers, deftly controlling your empire in motion, like a puppeteer pulling the strings of his marionettes!

    Complete with a curtain and smoke. And a little dog too.

    Yep; I can see it now.

    UUuuuuh... it will probably be more like this:

    me standing there with arms crossed, intently watching them go around the tracks, feathering the throttle lever of one every now and then thinking to myself "that right there ain't right. It shouldn't rock that much going through that curve. That building isn't straight. Is that a thumbprint on that car window?? Would people actually be standing that close to the escalator on a platform?" :cautious:

    ...and then half a bottle of Woodford later and "SHINKANSEN DRAG RACE!! WIDE OPEN, BABY" and "WHO PUT THIS PAINT BRUSH IN MY COFFEE MUG?? I JUST POURED THIS!" :ROFLMAO:

    Cleaning paint brushes in Woodford Reserve is a hanging offense! Maybe you could claim impairment... A half-empty bottle would be Exhibit A.

    Drinking Woodford from a coffee mug is only a misdemeanor. You could claim diminished capacity (no, not the coffee cup!) Any port in a storm.

    Port?! Who put grape juice in my whiskey?!

    ZZZzzz...
