    Afternoon All,

    Pearl Harbor is in my DNA now. I served there for 14 years with constant reminders of the attack, from the memorial, the buildings still with bullet holes in them, the old battleship moorings and a myriad of other things.

    Today I put on the turnbuckles and wire bands. It took about an hour to do the first one. Needles to say it didn't go together how I envisioned but once I figured it out I did the other 4 in about 25 minutes. I also glued the roof supports on after I finished the banding.

    Most likely I will be helping Son-in-Law install vinyl flooring in their house Saturday and Sunday. The high temps are supposed to be in the 60's for the next 4 days. Saturday is also youngest grandsons karate advancement in the morning.

    Willie- Great layout pictures.

    Johnny- Do you need to be retrained on how to act as a Model Railroader? LOL.

    Garry- We can always count on you having top notch modeling.

    Good afternoon. We had an unanticipated stroke of good fortune today. The wife went to the vampire's for bloodwork, then I accompanied her on an impromptu shopping adventure, to the Toys R Us, and the local mall. Three hours later, we were finished our Christmas shopping, for children and grand children.

    Chet: thanks for sharing your father's experiences on the USS Chester. That Cruiser had quite a combat record in the Pacific. The John Wayne movie "In Harms Way", co-starring Robert Mitchum and Patricia Neal, was loosely based on the story you related.

    Ya mention Pearl Harbour Day to a millenium and they think you're referring to a jewelry store. Ken
    KenVA: Milleniums also think 9-11 is a way of reporting an emergency...

    Curt: Great work on the water tower. Those turnbuckles and wire bands really make the model.

    Today is also the 46th anniversary of my disastrous first marriage. Getting married on the Day that Lives in Infamy, should have been an omen...

    Chet's snow is forecast to pay us a visit over the weekend. I better get the rest of the Christmas lights up tomorrow.
    I survived the Penn Central

    48 and kinda snarky here

    i'm still having visitors. Apparently I was well loved around here.
    Everyone should get the chance to see how they are treated after a return like this.
    I'll bet some would be humbled and some embarassed.

    I go the down stairs looking fairly fair. The train room is another matter.I'd just as soon bomb it and start over.

    Joe: Let me echo much of what you said - some items I will switch around!

    1. I have done zero shopping - may pull what my wife tells everyone. "Sherrel rushes down to CVS Christmas eve and fights with other husbands trying to buy the last demo bottle of perfume in the store."
    2. I loved that movie- "In Harms Way" and too wish to acknowledge all the present and past military personnel. Chet, Curt, and others who served - A UGGGEEE thank you!
    3. Don't get me started - No comment on the Milleniums. I got called down for yelling instructions to the g-kid at the soccer game ... said I was coaching from the side. Kill the ref. woulld have been asked to leave the field!
    4. Curt - That tank is going to be a masterpiece. Really looking good.
    5. JOE, I still have not taken down those 17 boxes. Going to start soon as I complete this post.
    On the other hand, It was on this day in 1990 that I proposed to my last - and I do mean last - wife. Wouldn't trade her for the world ... but will always remember Pearl Harbor Day.

    I have been wrapped up on a repair project on the almost 4 x 8 foot kitchen granite island where the edge has a 3 foot long crack along the edge of the sink.
    Fires are really doing damage out here. We have one on each side of here just started a few hours ago. A DC-10 is retardant dumping on the one to the north of us at an altitude of 500 AGL; watching it on TV live - doing 45 degree bank turns at 500 feet in gusty winds in mountain terrain is not for the faint of heart.

    I am starting to think I will never be old enough to know better!

    Nice. Great for rodent control.
