Recently I was reading a modeling article somewhere out there on the Internet,
and the writer was talking about using coupons, at places like Michael's, Jo-Anns, and Hobby Lobby.

I've never been very big on using coupons for much of anything, but I figured what-the-heck. 
I needed some brass and figured I would stop by Hobby Lobby on my way home the next day. 
I went to Hobby Lobby's website and printed out a 40% off coupon. 
The package of brass I bought retailed for $3.99, but only cost me $2.39 (plus tax) with my coupon.

So, if you are like me, and need to stop by one of these places for some supplies,
why not save a buck or two and get a coupon. 
All these stores have neat tools, doodads and stuff.

I agree with you.
Matter of fact, the can of Testor's Dullcote (now made by Rust-O-Leum)
costs close to $6 at the "train shop" but is $3.99 at Hobby Lobby...that's without a coupon!
Nope, I don't have any financial stake in HL,
except that they get some of my anti-social security money occasionally.
Nope, they don't have any On30 (1:35n2) trucks or detail parts,
but then NEITHER does the train store! Go figger!

Woodie

Been trying to make some progress on the turntable. 

Some of you may have been following my thread Turntable 'Lazy-Susan'

https://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=8302&forum_id=20&page=1










It's been overcast this weekend with rain, wind and cold.  Unusual for May. 

Makes it uncomfortable for trying to get much done outside.

The New San Miguel Yard is ever so slowly coming together.





Yeah, it's a mess, but it's a work in progress.

Michael, your layout is developing nicely, as is you're turntable.
I suspect that most peoples layouts are a messy work in progress, I know mine sure is.

Needed a little diversion from track laying.





San Miguel needed a Boot Hill to bury undesirables and unknowns. 
A few grave markers made from some scrap balsa.

There really was a 'Hooch' Simpson. 
In a drunken state he killed a poplar merchant and banker,
Jim Arnold, in Skidoo. 
He was lynched three days later. 
A reporter over in Independence heard of the incident,
and traveled to Skidoo a few days later. 
The miners dug up the body of Hooch, dusted him off,
and hung him again so the reporter could take a picture.

Life was both simpler and sometimes short in the Old West.

A few view shots of the layout:









Still a lot to do.
