    Thanks, Tom

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be

    I bought a magazine.

    Magazine.jpg

    It says, "model railroading is fun" which leads me to believe that the author of that line has never assembled multiple micro-trains couplers or soldered tiny SMD leds…

    Oh yeah - looking back, I see Moose sneakily mentioned that in a recent post.
    Hmm, very disturbing ... next thing you know, we don't have to post pictures anymore.

    Ah, I'm thinking @Moose2013 is not going to change his ways about photos, regardless of coronavirus, tecatevirus, dosequisvirus, or modelovirus. Of course, I'm only speculating. ...

    Guinnessvirus...no, perish the thought!
