I would hope so. I'll stay tuned.

By the way, for those of you who may be following the little sub-discussion about me not being able to come because my daughter was due and we are the appointed caretakers - I'd posted to RW above that I could have been at the Reunion, as she still hadn't delivered. Well, a couple of hours later, at 1:45 AM on 9/27, her husband called and said things were happening very quickly. My wife dressed and headed up to take care of their older kids (4 yrs od and 2 yrs old), who, thank God, were asleep and stayed that way. Even though eventually 2 cops and 2 ambulances showed up right outside their bedroom window - after my wife and my daughter's hubby had helped her deliver the baby - standing up - in the bathroom. (well, squatting, obviously, but still, that girl is tough stuff). This was about 2:05 AM, as near as I can tell.

I went up in the morning and took my wife and the granddaughters a hot breakfast - and as we were leaving, thought I'd use the bathroom - but after I'd washed my hands, realized that there wasn't a bath towel, hand towel, wash rag, rug - every possible absorbent article except the toilet paper was gone from that room! (and, as usual, my wife, ever efficient, had the room all scrubbed up and everything in the wash before she went back to sleep!)

Mom and baby are fine. My wife will never forget that - she helped deliver her own grandchild. And it's a boy, and I'm getting close to retirement, so I think it'll be time to dust off the rocketry skills, and my old Aurora Model Motoring slot car track, and the trains, and the planes, and, when he's ready - WOFF/WOTR!

Indeed, RW, indeed! When it comes to passing the family legacy on to young'uns, more is "caught" than "taught" and I always want them to see me doing GOOD things and being a barrel of fun.

Yes sir guys it sure is. I have like 150+ ft of pin-and-joiner Aurora HO track, and all the trimmings - bridges, trestles, humps, chicanes, X's, 4 different radii turns, twin bank turn sets, twin 90° crossings, lap counters - I had everything in pairs so I could run 4 lanes. I even found an HO railroad crossing, but it'll need a little surgery as I think it's Tyco. When I was a kid, I made some insane layouts. The speeds weren't so high then, and you'd drift around the turns with you back end spinning on to those yellow sloped berm pieces... good times!
