Kids and Seniors Alike

I got invited to setup in the lobby of the CSME Clubhouse for a senior openhouse. Groups from around the area came in for a layout tour. I got to hear some interesting stories. One lady's brother trained in Adair during WWII. She also remembered, at age 17, being whistled at by German POWs in a passing truck.

The club has an extensive collection of magazines. It was interesting to see the detailed modeling going on in January 1966!

They also have a number of books. I found this likely modeling subject for the next Pacific Model Logger's Conference.

Cool. Next time you're down this way, have me show you Grandpa Neil's train. But don't be shy, do ask! (Because I won't remember w/o prompting. Same as I suspect I also already told you this very thing once [or more] before!) :)

Ken, Your web of contacts seems to keep spreading. Next thing you'll be going out of state to Vegas or Hawaii. Wingman
