I'm sure you will be around for many more Marches than the next one.  I hope so any way.  What would the forum be without you?  Sane and boring?

kind regards

Dave

You should have said something at the Warrington exhibition, I know when they told me I had heart failure the family said the diagnosis was wrong, and they wanted visual proof that I don't have a swinging brick where my heart should be...how rude

Nobby's run of bad luck continues.................

Having decided to have a running session on 'Kimbolted' this morning I placed one of my Farish Warships on the track only to find that, while it's been sleeping in its box, it has split a gear. Worse was to come as, whilst retrieving said Warship, my sleeve caught my weathered class 37 and it plummeted 4ft to the tiled floor of my mancave with a terrible crash, resulting in quite a few pieces scattered round the floor :doh: Having placed the chassis back on the track, the crash has resulted in at least one split gear also :'( :'(
Most embarrassing as this is the first loco I've 'dropped' in 30 years of N gaugeing :-[
Anything further would have to be :censored:

Been there done that got the tea shirt ,I learnt my lesson I now wear a short sleeved shirt when I'm down the shed even if it's cold ,in the winter I might put the portable gas fire on if I am staying down for a running session ,and can afford the gas.

Jolly bad luck, old chap!  :doh:

Not done that yet but there's time.

Are you able to repair yourself or like me, have to send off to those (much) more capable?

My problem is not with my cuffs but with my beer/wine belly knocking stuff over at the front of the layout when I lean over to fiddle with something near the back.

Best regards,


Joe

Luckily I know a 'man who can' on the forum, Dave, so I'm hoping he can put Humpty the class 37 back together again (we need a fingers crossed smiley)

Not happy.

How does a courier deliver two separate parcels from separate shippers to two people at the same address to the wrong address with both parcels returned to the post office marked not at this address. :'(

The labels are nicely laser printed ones not even hand scrawled using the poetic "fingernail dipped in tar". :'(

 :'( :'( Bang goes my next 2 months loco and baseboard stash of cash.
Realised that our Horse Chestnut tree in the front garden has got a bit out of control again and needs re-pollarding before the winter really sweeps across the country and things fall across the roads etc.
Needs this short back and sides pruning every 3-4 years and I hadnt  the time is due again  :'(
OK so it might only be a few hundred quid  :-\  but when one factors Christmas in as well it starts to look bad

Shame Jon as they are such lovely trees.

Fortunately ours is in the corner next to the field so we don't have that challenge. Mind you, the walnut is now huge and a haircut is on the cards. The squirrels got all the crop as well!
