There I was, (thinking about) digging this hole, hole in the ground. Then I realised just how hot the sun is. So here I am, sittin' in the shade etc., writing some notes.
Yesterday was a quiet day at the Clubrooms - put that down in no small measure to the Superbike races. That was Paul's reason for coming early and leaving early, having checked that the new warehouse will fit on its appointed site at Port Gary. George continued with building fences in the paddocks around the quarry, and tells me that his prize Jersey herd is now safe from the ravages of whatever stud bull David has introduced to the neighbourhood. Rod arrived and looked rather lost without facing five scale km of track waiting for him to lay. I think that he and Dale then went off to decide how they would fit Hattons sub-baseboard point motors to various 3 way and double slip points still needing such things. Greg and I chatted for a while about how on some Sunday arvos the right thing to do is stand around and chat. Then, armed with a laptop, JMRI and a PR3, he went off to chat with Geoff the Pres's 4-6-0 whatever. It, however, was not in the mood for a Sunday arvo chat. Other locos did chat both with JMRI and the Digitrax sound loader so we knew the system was OK. Back to Geoff to find what we guess to be a wiring problem, perhaps between loco and tender. Judy made sure that we took time out for smoko, helped along by Nancy's muffins. That some muffins went home again is a testament to how few of us were there. Not long after that, most went home to dodge the traffic.
I had no traffic to dodge, so stayed on to tidy up a bit. So, usual caveat that these notes are one man's view of the world and not official Club policy. BUT, now that we have a very nice room, and an operating layout, can we keep it that way?
Usually, Rhyll can be mistaken for Sleepy Hollow, but next weekend is the Wooden Boat Festival. Up to 15,000 visitors expected, so don't come that way - unless you want to make a day of it and look at wooden boats. You might need to park at my place.
See you on the 4th
