Well,here I sit on Xmas morning at 2:30 am.
My son is 14 now,so this is kind of the first year that I really felt him not into the whole thing little kids are into on Christmas eve.
He already got his stuff yesterday,when my wife took him out shopping.And his other present from me is a big wad of dough for this coming Friday when we take a trip to NJ Nostalgia Hobbies to load up on tjets and supplies.

So at any rate,this is the first year in awhile that the reason I was up was to wrap his gifts.Time marches on I suppose,and sometimes it really sucks when it does.
Instead,Im sitting at my work bench with a huge pile of tjet chassis and parts,and a big birds nest of wire from the arms I am redoing.
And playing with this COOL digital cam that my wife bought me.

Heres a really quick pic I took.STill learning how to use it:

Now I can get back to posting pics again to better explain what the hell I am talking about sometimes.I LOVE posting pics,and this camera is a snap to use and the picture quality is outta sight.

At any rate,to all of you out there on this board thatI go back and forth with throughout the year,have a great holiday season.

And to those of you out there with little kids that will wake you up in an hour or so,soak up every second of it.

It will definetly be some of your fondest memories,and,it doesnt last forever.

Treasure your time with him at this age,and interest in the hobby,it sometimes fades all too quickly,god bless and merry christmas!
He loves it.He got his first set when he was 2,and he's 14 now.

I got my first set when I was two as well.Waaaaaaaaaaaay back in 1963.

Actually,as I am told,it was two huge Aurora sets.Two of my uncles bought me the same exact set,not knowing that the other one had bought it.
My dad said it was a grand old time.He and my uncles setup a huge layout on my grandmothers living room floor.

And now,40 years later,Im still at it.

And my old man comes over,and we have to turn off the lights in the basement to get him to leave!!!!!!!!! :rolleyes:
He LOVES it.

Kinda cool tho.Three generations,me,my son and my dad down here in the dungeon,carrying on like idiots.

If only more folks knew how much fun and how rewarding this hobby is.
