Choo choo... NOT!

In case you all didn't get yesterday's joke... April Fools.



I HATE building model train sets. I don't mind looking at other people's model train sets... but I have absolutely no patience for what I view as an inherently useless pastime.

It is true that my grandmother bought me my first model train kit (which I requested) for Christmas one year.

That was one of the biggest mistakes of my life, right up there with taking a girl I liked to a way-too-expensive Rolling Stones concert because I knew she was a fan.

I didn't get a kiss... I couldn't afford a T-shirt... and honestly... I hate the Rolling Stones. And now she's off and married with kids and I'm still $120 short on my net worth...

Women and model trains. I tell ya...

The model train kit ended up at the thrift store after I got utterly frustrated with it (and after my grandmother died so I could chuck it with less remorse.) Sanding the rails... trying to get the things to run. Ack. And then, when it was all working, all you have is an endlessly repeating loop to watch. Choo (yawn) choo. As for the girl... sure, she's still pretty but I like the one I have now much better.

Bonus: my now-wife hates the Rolling Stones. And I never spend more than like $5 on gifts for her and she kisses me all the freaking time.

In fact, I can barely keep her off me long enough to garden.

...

Where was I? Ah yes... talking about yesterday's gag. Anyhow - remember what I said about being bored with this site and gardening? Not at all. The passion has only grown... I don't intend on stopping any time soon. Keep reading, keep sending me ideas, keep leaving comments... and I promise to keep posting.

Have a wonderful April, fools.

Ha! You got me. I'm just glad it all went away and we're back to gardening.

Fantastic. In the back of my head I was thinking... boy, I could REALLY scare people off if they think I'm serious. There is probably less than .0001% overlap between gardeners and model train enthusiasts.
