Model Train

I felt happy today when we finished working on the train layout. On Friday we began with getting the logging car to dump it's logs. We felt good about that. Next we started to move the transformers to the new table and the animated pieces stopped. I felt so bad because until that happened I couldn't wait for daughter to come home to show off. In trying to get things back working we had to cut through the scenery to find the burned out transformers. We did get all but the skating rink working. We got a new transformer but couldn't find the right size end. Today John spliced the old end on the new transformer and we got the lights and music but the skaters still don't move but we have two other skating rinks so we will let the skaters just stand on the rink. Then we ran everything. We had two trains moving and two trolleys and all the animated items working.

I felt so bad on Friday that John sent me roses. Beautiful red and yellow roses.

I want also to thank Kristin for the pictures I have been getting of Samuel.

Awwwwwww... you guys work so hard on that layout! It's great you have a hobby that you both enjoy together so much!!! I love that! What a sweet man to send you flowers when you're down! You certainly did latch a keeper - didn't ya?! :) I'm pretty sure HE got a keeper too!

You make me miss my Dickens Village. The roses are really a plus.

You two are so lucky to have a project that you share -- and a passion, too. How wonderful that Dr. John still sends you roses.
