Dream to reality,

Has change naturally…

Resources and skill

May overcome will,

And stop a monstrosity!

Imagineering**  consults

Problem solving results…

Creative process

Turns a mess

Into appreciative adults!

-With my train layout I find

Spaces fitt in the mind…

Are so smaller

Narrow or taller,

Fitting it in takes time!

—Jonathan Caswell


Three good days make a close shave (?),

A feeling of happiness braved…

Medicine free–

What’s wrong with me,

I’m bouncing around like a knave!

Blood sugars aren’t that high,

At least when testing is tried…

Enough good food

Improves the mood,

When health is properly eyed.

Several happy events,

Occurred so I’m less tense…

New work forms

Brought no alarms,

It’s nice when things make sense!

My little train actually ran—

More jumper wires are planned…

Buying used turnouts

Are cheaper there-abouts,

But function may not be as planned!

Was able to buy supplies,

A new rail cutter besides…

Took more “gold”

Replacing the old–

My rail joints were too rough and wide!

Doing several things right

And being praised lifted sight…

The paradox—

Have to fill my “med box”

Tomorrow or better yet–tonight.

Spike-by-spike track moves forward,

Tie-by-tie covering land…

Commerce miniature shaping progress,

Focussed on each task at hand.

N scale track fits in places

Thought impossible before…

Problem-solving special cases

Suddenly end a war.

Challenges are remeasured,

Answers spring up after years…

Of discouraged gandy dancers

Saying, “Should we put track here?”

Certain tracks convoluted,

Are snaked out of many knots…

A spaghetti layout substituted

With a track plan having open spots!

Nail or gluing down by spot tack,

Ensures things won’t hit the floor…

As designers fix a problem

Cracks in bench work–nothing more!

Decided to go for a turntable,

Switching ends is lots of fun…

Plus the matter  of train couplers

Certain engines not in front.

Up- or downstream is the question,

When portraying waterfalls…

It’s confused with flexible planning–

Which end up when nature calls?

Fictional, yet firmly planted

In the villages near home…

‘Though they never had a railroad

They’ll be blessed by boiler foam.

N scale progress sure and steady

After years of certain doubt…

Soon we hope it will be ready

For this railroad’s “coming out”!!!

Only one, so far, has asked,

Why my sharing is axed…

But he understands

My boss’s demands

And with what I am asked.

It’s different in seeing,

Not allowed to say anything…

If I do I’m canned

At employee’s demand,

Keep wondering who hit the gate swing.

God isn’t through with me yet,

Count all joy the trials we get…*

Problem solving

Our faith involving,

While fears and doubts are met.

With lesser revenue,

Whay can people do…

Must find a contact

Before they act,

Problem-solving their way through.

Networking not just by yuppies,

It works for we poorer puppies…

Whom to call

Who won’t try to stall,

Til you’ve paid for pet guppies.

Tomorrow perhaps we’ll see

What the friend can do for me…

Clean a computer

With a CD rerouter,

To clear up my mystery?
