Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Never seen the Die Hard movies. Maybe now I should go rent one, now that you got my curiousity piqued. first time I saw the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" I immediately saw parallels to my life. I tend to think of myself as a combination of optimist and realist. Yes, things are going to happen...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

I can't say a whole lot except that everyone is physically OK, just separated by some distance now. Still together in spirit and soul, but physically separated. So it's not too bad. A bit depressing still, but eventually the idea is to rejoin in the near-ish future. Anyone ever see the old movie "Mr...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

*A bright headlight and a plume of diesel exhaust appears on the horizon, then a locomotive horn sounds* Hey guys! Been a couple years! All hell broke loose a couple years ago. A few people who said that they would get "Even" with me did just that. Or tried to. Remember the holy war I had years and ...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

1 AM here. Yesterday (The 14th) was Skoda's birthday, and my sister's birthday too. And Valentine's Day. And my sister's boyfriend of seven years proposed to her. So needless to say, it was a very big day. It was very windy and cold out, so we didn't do a whole lot for the day. We all went over to t...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

I hope it isn't permanent, and I hope that the site will be here in 2015. A lot of memories made here for me. Since I'm not sure what is happening with CWF, I am planning to copy some stuff down so it isn't lost forever.

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

No activity here in two weeks?

Maria, Skoda, and I have all been doing some traveling lately. We went up to Duluth, which has a lot of good stuff to see from a railroad enthusiest point of view. Travelled around Iowa, we spent a few days in the town I grew up in, Davenport.

eMTe, what kind of drugs are you on? :) I've read your posts, and no matter how many times I reread them, I still can't quite understand them.

Re: Why are you happy today?

Last time, I had this dream of f*** Kari Silvennoinen, Chrolle, Tormuse. jayenkai, Pater Alf, Scythe. In a homosexual; way. It wasnt anything uns. f***. At least I was not in it! I think that's something to be happy about today right there. Apart from that, Maria and I took Skoda to the park. We me...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Yes, I know they do. But, working with fine wire, I find it's actually easier to strip insulation with teeth. With a wire stripper tool, I tend to be more likely to break the wire.

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

With my numerous health problems, one thing I do have going for me, is unusally perfect dental history. Never had a cavity, and never had other common dental problems. I did have my four wisdom teeth pulled at 14 years old, because they were coming in crooked. And I have a bit of a gap between my to...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

For what it is worth, I still do not own a cell phone of any kind. I have my landline. Maria has a cell phone, but she rarely uses it. The way I see it, the world got on for countless centuries without them. We had an industrial revolution, opened 2,000 miles of American frontier, had two World Wars...

Re: Interesting pictures, videos and flash animations

Not sure if it counts at "Interesting", though I think it does. This is a small model railroad I'm building inside a briefcase. This is done in N scale. Z scale, which is smaller, is usually the scale commercially available layouts this size are made in.

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Loki and Skoda have a kind of special bond. When Skoda was a little baby, she would scream and cry until Loki curled up with her for a while. Those two are best friends in a funny way. Considering how skittish Loki is, that a baby cry wouldn't make her run and hide is very unusual. Now that Skoda is...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

I'm here still, but with nice weather and Skoda old enough to actually enjoy it now (And in a nicer town where we all can enjoy it too!), I haven't been logging in as much. On sunny days I take my old Lionel trains (Some of them my dad's old Lionel, and some of them also grandpa's old Lionel) out on...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

I've thought about writing. I was good at it when I was younger. I think I have a great novel from the past six years. On that note, I turn 30 in a couple weeks. Going to spend the day with Maria, Skoda, and all our close friends. Been thinking a lot lately about the adventure the past six years hav...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Good seeing you here, C. Things are going well for us. Here in Kenosha, we have the hobby shop which I help with. Then up the street there is the old streetcar line with cars from the late 1940s/early 1950s running. Then there's a hot dog place that the owner set up a Lionel train set in front, whic...

Re: Interesting pictures, videos and flash animations

They have long ago blocked me from posting to their page. Otherwise, yes, they would have heard from me on this one!

I suppose I could set up a fake profile to post there, but it is not worth it to me.

Maria got a good laugh out of it too. So did our friends that work there.

Re: Interesting pictures, videos and flash animations

Pulled this from Pace's facebook page. One crushing defeat and two sacked managers wasn't enough for them? Along with an ungodly sum of money they had to pay? Either way, I'll bite: "Met and fell in love with an employee. Despite some truly henious stunts pulled by management, we stayed together. We...

Re: The little Inn by the wayside

Been a bit slow here recently. Maria and I have been busy. We spend most of the day at a nearby hobby shop. A friend of ours, Bob, used to have a hobby shop in Waukegan. He moved his shop to Kenosha a couple years ago. We are maybe 3 blocks away from him. I spend the day working on projects with him...
