Welcome To "The Back Part Of The Basement"

Welcome to my new blog, "The Back Part Of The Basement". I was trying to come up with a catchy name for this blog and that's the best I could come up with. But it is true that "the back part of the basement" is the area of my house where all my important "stuff" is - my Martin 6-string, Fender 12-string acoustic guitars, Squire Stratocaster electric guitar; my 4x8 foot Lionel Train layout; my CD and DVD collection; and collection of toy train and music books and magazines. My stuff shares this small space with the furnace and hot water heater, with the washer and dryer close by. I like to turn off the lights back here and run the trains, the only illumination coming from the headlights of the locomotives and accessories on the layout. My enjoyment of this activity is enhanced with a nice cigar and a good bourbon. I get a kick when the smoke from my cigar and the steam locomotives sets off the smoke alarm! Weird, I know. The back part of the basement easily converts to the "Club L", where my wife and I hang out, have a few drinks, and sing (she's the singer, I'm the guitar player) after the kids are asleep. Well, that's about it for now. Please feel free stop by again and leave a message.

now all the criminals know exactly where you keep the 'stash'. No need to worry about them taking the 3-rail fake looking trains however.

hint to the crooks....the real looking trains are in the next room. They belong to Jeffrey!!
