Saying for the Day:Abraham Lincoln:To ease another's heartache is to forget one's own.
-----Horrible night last night. Everything ached. I got up at 3:00 and took a hot bath and that helped me to sleep until just after six. WE moved fast this morning to get everything ready for the trip. I drove to Rhinelander and Betty watched "Left Behind" on the DVD player. Once we got to Rhinelander we drove right buy the motel where the train show was and proceded to get lost. We get lost everywhere.We stopped for directions at the CITGO station and that's when we discovered we had driven past the Motel. We registered and saw the first layout in N scale. Betty bought a raffle ticket on the layout. We won a doorprize which consisted of a HO boxcar. We saw a great G scale indoor layout. The owner had three very expensive engines and his wife had a picture book of their garden layout. Across from this was a double layout of old American Flyer three track trains including one in standard gauge. It was awesome. We took in two workshops. One on making trees and one on Command control of the trains. Then we went to the logging musuem and saw a huge HO layout that must have taken thousands of hours of work. To get to it you had to go down a horrible number of stairs. Later we found out there was a ramp I could have used. Well the exercise might have been good for me. Betty drove home and I watched and old Shirley Temple movie. It had a happy ending. Betty said the autumn colors were beautiful. Arriving home we took some pictures of our O27 layout and we will soon add them to our web page which in case you have forgotten is at www.familylinna.com . Well I need a breathing treatment.
