The transmission around here went dark for a while. I tend to do that after I write something I really like. As if the next thing has to somehow equal or better it, and the pressure is too much. Well, this post is plainly not going to be as cool as the previous one, so let’s just set the bar nice’n’low.
However this doesn’t mean that nothing awesome has happened over the last week; the speakers are assembled and I’ve been adding/subtracting foam to try to find the optimal amount of stuffing. More detailed impressions to come…
Also, something arrived in the mail last week which I’ve been waiting for since last October; two Milwaukee Road model train locomotives. Another first breaching of what will no doubt become a massive topic on the site–model railroading! I had a (semi?)glorious train layout while I lived in Chicago, but unfortunately it has resided inside many boxes since the move to Texas. As I get motivated to bring more pieces of it out and eventually start construction on Layout 2.0, expect to hear more about model trains in this space.
Yardwork happened too. Much needed yardwork. And the accompanying post-yardwork hot tub dip. That part was good.
And lastly, car repairs! YUCK. I think tonight will be a ‘drowning my sorrows in fine pizza and delicious wine’ night. Ugh. Mondays.
