Loyal readers have wondered why I haven’t posted anything since June. The answer is that I took a needed break from political, legal, and pandemic commentary to tackle a completely different project.
I spent the past six months creating a holiday voyage on a model railroad train that takes readers to a magical place. Before the COVID Delta variant spread, I began to design and build it. Working seven hours a day, seven days a week, I hoped to complete the project by the winter holidays, when all of our four grandchildren would be able to visit us safely and run the trains themselves.
Delta’s explosion and Omicron’s emergence scuttled those plans.
So until the pandemic eases, this video will have to suffice.
But it’s no substitute for the real thing.
And two years of FaceTime and Zoom are no substitute for hugging those you love.
Anyway, here is a short video showing the result of my labors. Perhaps you, too, will find it to be a welcome respite during difficult times.
