Point to ponder…

—If you decide to make thrills your regular diet and try to prolong them artificially, they will all get weaker and weaker, and fewer and fewer, and you will be a bored, disillusioned person for the rest of your life. It is because so few people understand this that you find many middle-aged men and women maundering about their lost youth, at the very age when new horizons ought to be appearing and new doors opening all round them.—C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity

I see so many newcomers to this hobby blow in and burn a wad of money on model trains, only to lose interest and try to sell off what they bought 6 months later, expecting full or near full retail.

Christ promises food and raiment sufficient for the day, everything else is cake. Don’t be the next Bozo with a dust covered “Plywood Pacific Railroad” in your basement and a wife you haven’t taken out and wooed in over a year…make sure your house is in order, with the Blood of The Lamb on its doorposts and lentil, before you try to build a layout in it.
