The Collector's Bane - Real Life

So, it may be a while until my next post. It isn't laziness that will cause the dry spell, but that thing all collectors hate to deal with: real life.  


Sort of.

This is the previous weekend.


We have been saving to put a new loafing shed/storage building up.  The old one, which appeared on aerial photos back to the late 40s was finally too decrepit to save.  We had been keeping it patched together, but the last time I was up on the roof making a repair, I could feel the whole building swaying with every gust of wind. I told my wife that was the last time I was going to fix it.  So, we had it torn down in March and finally got the new one built.

And here is a sneak preview of next weekend:

It is time for our fourth annual trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio for a Halloweekend full of roller coasters and haunted houses. I am more excited than a man of my age should be.  Additionally, we'll visit family and on the drive home we are going to visit the LST 325 Museum in Evansville, IN. My late father-in-law served on an LST in WWII and my wife has always wanted to see one.

So, hasta luego!  Hopefully I'll be back doing hobby stuff in October.

What I am listening to: Midnight in Harlem by Tedeschi Trucks Band


  1. The shed looks awesome! Have a fun trip riding the roller coasters.

  2. Ha! I thought you were going to build a roller coaster next weekend.
    Have fun!
