After 30 winters in MT, I figure "I've paid my dues", time to do a little AZ quail huntin' with my bird dog while this 'ole body still has some parts that are still workin' pretty good.

Happy Holidays to everyone. Griz
What kind of bird dog, Griz?

Hi Neighbors, I have been trying to direct new posters to the great weather thread that EH has been keeping up. I think it does alot of explaining life in the Big Sky State and quite frankly the life threatening weather.

Well we got a few inches, not much, just dog gone cold. Still I got my Christmas lights up. I am such a kid

My wife looked at the weather report for our town early this morning and it said it was 21 below zero F.
No wonder our heating system is running on and on ! It's 75 in our store right now without our radiator zone on. The boiler itself warms it up just fine.
I just showed my wife those two YouTube videos I posted and she saw all kinds of stuff that I missed when I first watched them.
100 Mbps makes YouTube fun again !

Nothing wrong with being a kid especially during the holidays. Don't know about you, but in our family it is the Christmas Elf (mom) who pulls it all together. The decorating of the house, baking of all those holiday treats - the things that help to make the holidays special. It is a lot of hard work so if being a little bit of a kid, and enjoying the excitement of it all makes if fun - sign me up.

My wife just broke the bad news to me, I'm not going to get a humongous HO scale model railroad set up under the tree this Christmas.

Dang... I dunno what scale ours is (the track is a tish under 2" wide and electrified) but when I was a little kid, we used to set it up all over the living room at Xmas. Main reason it didn't get used more was that the locomotive was over-powered for the track curvature, and would fly off the tracks if you ran it up above a crawl. And it could go pretty fast!

We still have the whole boxful somewhere, with lots of track and a full set of railcars... at least I hope we do, cuz the durn thing is pretty valuable according to the toy collectors!

Toy collectors are nuts even by the standards of collectors anywhere. Last time I went to a toy show (20 years ago) a 15" dumptruck in terrible condition was marked at $1500. Wonder what my identical dumptruck in pristine condition is worth? Or my toy jeep with matching trailer? (Tho I like it too much to sell it!)

[goes off, looks up model train scales] Appears our old train set is "O" gauge, double the size of HO. Having seen both, I like the looks of the bigger models better, even tho they're not as convenient for the living room

Old toys are great, I was thrilled when I found a Howdy Doody string puppet, on ebay a few years ago, from the 1950's.

I sure wish I had those Barbie Dolls from my childhood.
