    Really Little LBC

    My HO slot car layout has a new detail as of the last week. I finished a diner and now Inspector Morse and Sargeant Lewis are in town helping the local police solve a mystery in Cherringtown.

    Only ate at Zip's once. It's in Dayville, CT. On our way to a wedding in Massachusetts, we were stopped by a State Trooper on 395 and given a BS ticket. I sent it back with a Not Guilty plea but I had to go for trial in Willimantic - about 2 hours from Stamford. As is usual in criminal cases, I met with the prosecutor beforehand. He asked me how many years I had been driving. At that time, it had been almost 50 years. He turned to a policeman standing there and asked "What do we do with this guy?" The cop said "Throw the book at him!". The prosecutor said "You heard him. Get the F outta here - and don't come back. Have a nice day, counselor". I never forgot it.

    I was always surprised by the quality of the fiction that they published.

    Yeah - I always found it hard to believe those women were real.

    Sorry, Dave - didn't mean to run this off the rails. VERY nice work on your track! Reminds me of the dioramas we used to visit at the Louisiana State Museum in Shreveport when I was a kid in the fifties. I've always been amazed at the detailed work that goes into creations such as yours.

    Love the dedication, Dave. I've only an inkling as to the time and effort going into that. One uncle was an HO scale fan, built a scaled copy of our neighborhood, made the houses from manilla folders and Tester's paints.

    Your modeling skills are really impressive Dave. What did you use for the asphalt? It almost looks like sandpaper.

    Seems that the time has come, the print edition, after coming back from being a literary attempt with no photos, has been discontinued. Like so many magazines, just couldn't complete with the short attention span net users for time.

    I read "The Man with the Golden Gun" in the four-part episodes in 1965. My Old Man had subscribed to Playboy since it started, missed the first couple months. Mother threw all away after he'd passed. She had NO idea...

    I tried to assemble a full set, used to find them at flea markets back in the 80s. Didn't quite manage but it is all there from 1960 to now the final one. Eventually I'll sell them since things like that can bring decent money anymore from collectors. Funny, most I only looked through once...
