Love is Strange.

My Brother came down this weekend to bring us a table.
He's stuck around long enough to help us haul another table home,
from Benjamin's storage unit.

We emptied the place that has been his holding pattern for longer than he liked.

I smiled when my brother lashed the last piece down in the back
of his big white truck.

A board that had a train track on one side...and a few wires hanging off the end.
My Father and Brother...have trains too.

Oh, there was another dining table as well...chairs and all.
Me and my tables...all these loverly tables.

The table with green flaking off it, tracks nailed down?
I didn't know about this table.

Pop has trains from when he was 15, living in Germany...
Wonder if they would fit these tracks?

H...that should fit, right?
There is something about a middle track with German model trains?

I don't know.

It is in the garage.
With the boxes.

My Brother is asleep in my Study,
antid0te and her Beau Alex are asleep in Ben's Study....

They drove all the way from MN.
I wanted to cry when I saw her.
I miss her so much.

She brought a charcol of me, as a house warming present...
She says she's sorry it doesn't look like me?
It looks like I want to look.
More dangerous, more edge.
I love it.

Ben is asleep in our room.

I am still awake.

We have a house full of Guests, and us
with so many tables and so little furniture.


Table Rich.

Bed Poor.


They did.


When I crash tonight
I will crawl into a bed less marvelous than those of our House guests
who brought their own!

I'll make it up at breakfast.
That is where I shine.

*rubs head laughing*

I am tired.

We, my Brother and Friend and Friend's Beau...
will go to the museum tomorrow.

I want this done.
*rubs head*

But Ben will have already left............
Out the door at 6:30 AM.

My work starts at 5 PM.

*head in hands*

I don't live.........with the man
I Live with.

It is so much harder this way.

So much harder.

I love my friends, I love my family...
I am still lonely.

So very alone in this house....awake too late.

If I remember correctly, 'N' is the TINY scale(1/4" wide track), and 'HO' is the medium scale(like my trains, about 1" wide track). There's a big scale, but the name escapes me. 'HO' is the most common one that people get in the US. There are several strange Euro standards that are incompatible with US trains.
