      Post Script;

      Between your prayers and my doctors, I have achieved unique status;

      So far I am the only person to survive (beat) both squamous cell and small cell lung cancers.

      I'm thrilled I did it, but not so much the doing. 

      Wear a white ribbon for lung cancers.

       

      My source for the above, is my brother in law.

      I got an advanced copy and it's an aha read, for me.

      I'm on Imunotherapy; chasing the last dormant cells. Seems my possible dormants have a 5 year shelf life....

      It's Tom's first book, but a great personal story, he automated diagnosing biopsies, then had to support the speed with accuracy.

      Along the way the company grew and well ... that's my pitch for the man that taught my doctors.

      My singular achievement is the result of his many.

       

      If this is inappropriate let me know and I'll delete.

      The train connection is alive, since my sister won't have to take the layout apart, I can unpack my trains ...

      and flesh out some crazy chemo sketches and visions!

      Thanks again.

      Terrific buddy! Don't forget to wind up the trains so you don't have to pull them.

      Cinder blocks all around ...

      It's too windy to put the ladder on my truck for the other loop pic, just now ... progress is slow but steady.

      Progress is what's important, John.  The tortoise's progress was slow, too, but he won the race. Glad to see you outside having fun.

      Neat aerial shot, John! Ladder in the pickup bed, huh? Very effective. 

      In addition to all the block work, looks like you've made a lot of progress on the mine, I'm looking forward to seeing more of that.

      I don't believe either of you were telling the whole truth. By careful photo analysis, I've determined the shot involved a Go-Pro duct taped to a rooster in a speedo, tethered to an iron stripper pole reached by a ladder mounted in John's pickup bed. Which was parked on the deck.

      Kinda hard to see through, the green, but this was also from the ladder on the deck.

      Looking great, John!

       

      [EDIT]

      Your P'shop skills are indeed impressive. Yet I can still detect tiny evidences on where you've edited out the shadow of the tethered rooster, pole, ladder, all that.

      Nice job.

      From your photos John, it seems like you've gotten your layout back in great shape. It looks wonderful!
