    There I am, for the last several mornings, outside at 7:30 AM before departing for work, snapping pictures of the sky.

    I want to have something in front of me when doing clouds for my backdrop. Please let her know that I am not off my rocker.

    Seeing the title and the poster of this thread was enough.

    Mrs. Fothernigill, your husband is insane (with apologies to insane people).

    Tell her you are awaiting the space ship from Alpha Centauri and don't want to miss the landing. That way, when you are just working on your trains she'll be relieved... :teeth:

    I've been called worse that deranged myself by the missus- she's been accusing me of having the cheese slipped off my cracker long ago.

    Does make for an interesting outlook on life, though..........now, where's that Zoloft salt lick?

    Tony-

    Should I stop using the Alcoa Wrap for increased reception on my trans planetary radio communications equipment? That might help in the sanity defense.

    Charlie-

    Thanks for the supporting words. Now, all she needs is the two doctors.

    Lobster Hand-

    So much can be said, so little space in which to say it.

    Bob-

    Watch out for mixing the salt with the Zoloft. It might be one of the contraindications on the sheet included in the salt package.

    Everyone knows you only use tinfoil for the hat.

    My cloud pictures are all on a slide show, and my wife is now calling me a cloudfan, as she rolls her eyes.

    I have taken shots of clouds and gone to various photo hosting sites to look at pictures of clouds, sunsets, etc. for ideas.

    I'd tell her that you keep hearing these five tones in your head.

    Also tell her there is a close encounter you hoping to experience once you find the right hill.

    Join the club, when my girl friend saw that I had almost 400 freight cars, she went nuts. :realmad1up:

    At least you aren't DERAILED, then you would be off the track.

    Better to be DERANGED than to be DERAILED

    BTW... when she saw you taking pictures of the clouds... were you mumbling things like... "That group of clouds looks like Twentieth Century Limited".

    Grandpa Joe-

    No. But, there is room for 286 images on the card in the camera and she saw me snap four pictures. She looked at the counter and saw there were 257 available. That was enough for her to figure out that I have done this morning routine more than once.

    Man, you really know how to start a thread.
    Would you like a few cloudy pics of mine?

    Join the party. You are lucky when you have a wife who will support your hobby. However, there are those moments when they think we've gone over the wire, flipped or spaced out. Try asking her to help you with the cloud's for your background and watch what she does. Un uh, un uh.

    Heck, I'm divorced thanks to my former wife's opinion of my obsession...ahh...I mean dillusions...ahh...little boy playing train...ahh...love of railroads...that's better. Oh well!

    Wouldn't this tread be much shorted if we just allowed those who are not deranged post respones?

    Of course, if we did that, I wouldn't be able to post this. :D :D :D

    "Man, you really know how to start a thread."

    Let's not go down that track.
