Here's hoping you have had a good one. Thank you for all you do.
Happy Birthday..Allan...many more....john penca ogr 262
Happy Birthday Allan - hope to meet you someday!
Thank you all for your well-wishes!
I would take the time to answer each of the posts individually, but I just returned from an afternoon at Mercer Junction where I enjoyed the usual good fellowship and picked-up an MTH Alaska RR GP30 on preorder that had just arrived this week. Just what I needed...another locomotive. I think my roster now exceeds that of the real Alaska RR.
Also had a fine lunch at one of my favorite restaurants: the Iron Bridge Inn just outside of Mercer, PA. Great food, great service, and a bloody Mary that just hit the spot.
I will, of course, have to kill Don for revealing my birthday, but in order to do that I'll have to travel to Maui. I'll delay that trip long enough for him to get his new layout built and for him to submit several articles for the magazine. All kidding aside, a trip back to my beloved Islands (lived there nearly 18 years of my long life) is definitely in my plans for some point the future.
Thanks again to all--to those I know and have met, and to those I hope to meet at some point in the future. All are valued family members to my way of thinking. God Bless!
Happy Birthday to you sir...and many more trains...I mean years, to come!
Allan....Happy Birthday! Enjoy that new locomotive. Tom
