Train Show

Saturday my son, his boys,mydaughter,Dr John and I went to Trainfest in Milwaukee. My feelings on it ,too big. Dr John got to ride around and to see every thing. That was not true for me. My plan was to go up and down the rows of tables and then cross ways. As I began the walk I found a mill I thought would be nice on the layout. As I began I told Dr John and he didn't see it. I continued up the row and started down and found they[the tables] were not in nice rows. Then I saw Dr John again and he had not found the mill. I continued down the row and Dr John found me and said he found it follow him. I did. He couldn't find it and so up the same row I went and back down. I was about to continue when Dr John told me he found it, and we went over and bought the logging building the mill was sold out. At this point I was tired and wanted to just sit for a moment. There were rest areas but I couldn't find a seat. I was also hungry but the food lines were long. The family was also tired at this point so they found me and said we are going. So I did not get to see most of the show.

We ate at Fuddruckers[ not sure of spelling] and the grandkids were happy. I had a good grilled chicken.

It was nice to see the grandkids. It was too bad that my other two grandchildren and family could not be there but because of the recent illness of my granddaughter I didn't want to exposed her to anything.

Invest in a set of Walkie Talkies so you don't have to chase the renegade all over the markets.

I'll never forget a trip to Home Depo while 9 months pregnant for supplies for the baby room. Jon left me wandering while he ran around the store. I needed a bathroom and a place to sit.

I looked everywhere, and the only potty I could find were the ones set up in the display bathroom fixture aisles.

Don't worry, I didn't do it. But I did nearly burst just walking by the things.

That sounds like something really fun.I have always liked trains, the big ones and the little ones.We used to have a train running around our Christmas Village until it decided to quit.

oh my, boy, that sounds big alright and confusing. sorry you guys missed out on the mill but i'm sure you are to find something better soon. i'm in this kick that all happens for a reason and always works out for the best.

glad you had an outing with the family and yes, it was too bad that Brea got sick and they missed it. they would have loved to come.

i'm glad she is doing better.

hugs to you all and our love.

I do not like it when I am all excited to go somewhere but then I get so overwhelmed and I end up seeing only a portion of it. I kind of felt that way about Door much to see but not enough time!

Wow, that train show sounded like it wasn't well organized. I agree regarding the walkie-talkies. Those things were sure handy when we went to a big flea market. Maybe you should get a scooter of your own -- either that or Doc needs to attach a sidecar to his!
