He also still posts on Facebook. He's doing fine, and is getting a little bit of modelling done, with not much space to do it in.

He was on Rmweb last night, Appologising for going missing for a few days, extremely busy at work, and clearing his mothers house.

Although there was something about parties with students....

Thanks gents. Sol did email me to alert me to this message. I am indeed crazy busy right now though not entirely with modelling work. I have had the invidious task of clearing my parent's home following mum's recent passing, have been supporting SWMBO as she continues to lead her field in he world. We recently had a cocktail evening with Sir David Attenborough who was very impressed with her work.

I have one fairly small room into which must squeeze the office, the bed and the model collection. There are currently two boards up on legs and close to being ready to run but they need a small mid-section to be built and fitted first. The fiddle yard will be a piece of board resting atop the bookshelf in the office space beneath the cabin bed. I am, if nothing else, making best us of the little space I have,

RMweb regulars will spot the occasional post here and there although I am active daily in the Early Risers section of the social side of the site. I'll make a determined effort to get back in here more frequently too. With little trains to show you soon as well, I hope.

Good to hear from you Rick........I do keep an eye open for your posts on RMWeb but have not yet ventured into "Early Risers"........guess I should give it a try.

I seem to recall you taking a layout from Australia to the UK that fitted into a suitcase so your present space must be absolute gory luxury :lol:

Best wishes

John

John - I did indeed build a small N-scale layout which fitted inside a suitcase and which travelled from Australia to the UK for exhibition, then back again.  It returned to the UK with the main OO rolling stock collection and the small piece of Penhayle Bay which I still own but was found to be too badly warped to be worth keeping.  It was built on a pair of cork notice boards which had very little structural integrity.

About those parties with students .....

We live in Strawberry Hill which is close to St. Mary's University.  Our block is home to a number of their students though is also home to several families and older single sharers.  The immediate next-door neighbours, plus both their and our upstairs neighbours, are all students.  As we live in very close proximity and inevitably see each other quite often so friendships have developed which lead to being included in some of their social activities and vice versa.  This despite me being around three times their age.  I find it encouraging that the community can be inclusive that way though remain alert to the possibility that such friendships might be seen as unhealthy by those not involved. The kettle is always on somewhere and the door is if not always open at least not a barrier to friendship and socialising.

My birthday yesterday coincided with one of their large end-of-term parties so a few drinks were enjoyed here before the younger ones headed out for the night and the older ones headed off to bed!!!  Tonight they all have Spring Ball at the university.  The "pre-drinks" here involved a BBQ to which we were of course invited before they all donned their best or borrowed suits / party frocks.

I'm not planning on being awake to see what state they get home in as the dawn comes up!!!

Just a brief update to note that I now have two boards erected and only require the centre section to be formed and fitted before coupling the controller for test running. So hopefully a new layout topic starting very soon, then.
