Waiting for the FedEx man.

The FedEx man came by yesterday to deliver Mrs. Grouch's Kettweisel, but didn't leave it because I was at work. Hopefully our schedules will match up today.

If all works well, we'll be able to link them together and try out the Mule Team tandem this weekend. The weather forecast is favorable.

Ok, I know you`re not much into showing us pictures, but you gotta show us some photos of that.

+1. Maybe have Mrs. Grouch upload them somewhere and then you can just post a link.

Or you can send me pictures by snail mail, and I'll put them up.

The good news is that the trike came. The bad news is that it's not exactly what I had intended. I should have known better because the price was too low.

Hopefully I can get it assembled as-is tomorrow or Friday and we'll put the train together for a ride. I'll definitely take some pictures and get them posted this weekend even if it takes a grandchild to assist.
