TWO LITERS OF MOXIE!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

Two liters of MOXIE is wild,

Not this happy since a long while…

Twelve can packs of DIET

Could barely stay quiet,

Bought the two twelve packs they had there tonight!

SHAWS in Whitinsville, Mass.

Is where I found this great cache…

A delicious way

To end the day,

Sure hope they have more in the back!!!!!   ❤

GOING CANADIAN (NATIONAL)

Image result for n scale gmd-1

Going Canadian,

The collector bought another engine…

From RAPIDO TRAINS

It only remains

Just when his bank’s charge comes forth!

AfteR that special exhaust

Piping C.N. switchers have across…

their system-wide

Practice he spied,

If the model could be bought for minimal cost!

Without signing up for EBAY,

He found the right price to pay…

EBAY will arrange

Canadian currency exchange,

And he’ll receive it in the mail, someday!

(VERY) EARLY MORNING PROGRESS…

Couldn’t sleep—what a shame–

Had playtime to reclaim…

Three or more tries

Under night skies,

But with a clearer brain!

He completed reconnecting

Both spur and runaround track connecting….

All rail joiners fit

He was done with it,

Couldn’t test with the power pack defecting!

Musical power packs,

Changing over to  power tracks…

When he’s done

both layouts’ll run,

He’ll go on to more creative acts!

A SACRED AND SECURE SPACE

(An opinion in a practical religious context)

Muslims Jews and Christians  agree,

It goes against sanity…

For “LGBTQ’s”

Both bathrooms to use,

With total impunity!

Guys don’t mind looking at a girl

Think she’s a man–what a thrill…

But “girls” made like guys

A boy often lies,m

Ro get hormonal toe curls!

Men and women don’t mix,

Anatomically betwixt…

Security most times

On women’s minds,

Secure and private functions are blitzed!

We believe humans basically evil,

This POLITICAL oppression’s the devil…

Giving predators free rein

And those who complain

Are chastised for being “evil”.

An opinion post, based on religious and experiential  fact.

DEFERRED MAINTENANCE

GENESEE AND WYOMING bought,

PROVIDENCE AND WORCESTER stock…

At crossings I see

New grass frequently,

Where once I saw only rock!

Sadly I watch the downgrade,

Of physical plant improvements made…

It is a let down

Seeing grass newly grown,

Like this buyout wasn’t the best trade?-

Less-used spurs look like this too,

A shock for this railfan true-blue…

Grass along the ties–

Most think it small-sized,

But what else will  they not do?

An opinion of the author–above image is an example of–not the real grassy track referred to–which is at the Hartford Street  crossing in North Uxbridge, Massachusetts.

MODELING MONK’S BREAD?

A New York State Trappist monastery,

Supports itself by varied…

Breads and preserves

The proceeds go towards,

Keeping up this sanctuary!

Been thinking, since I have a friend

Who once thought he’d be Trappist at the end…

Married Chinese

The Lord they please,

The Lord to China them sent!

Christian industry

My layout could use, naturally…

Flour and sweet

Railcars  meet,

Blessing  a miniature economy!

A LAYOUT FOR CHRISTMAS…

It’s not too early at all,

Better now than in the fall…

Scheme and plan

We know what ran,

For something new can we call?

The simple circle’s a hit,

With one spur decorated…

I want TWO TRAINS—

And changing terrain—

Do you think my work is legit.?
