The Tally-Ho Coach

     Another of my many model kits is the Tally-Ho Coach. The one on top, from Revell, is the original issue. The lower one, from Universal Powermasters Corporation, is the reissue. Notice the different size boxes. You'd think the one from UPC is much larger. Wrong, stable breath. They're both the same kit from the same molds. UPC was a packager who rented molds not in use by other companies to reissue various kits. If I ever build this I'll let you know what it looks like.

     A followup to yesterday's birthday notice. Linda and I went to the Muckleshoot Casino. I was losing at first so we took a break to have their lunch buffet (or boo-fay as an ex-coworker used to say). I had a very good salad followed by the worst hunk of alleged prime rib to ever disgrace a plate. I spit out the second bite and let the busser take it away with the scraps. The piece of chicken I had wasn't much better. The side dishes and desserts were fine.
     I've eaten there many times and never had a bad item so this was a bit of a shock. Luckily I had enough Player's Club credits so I didn't have to pay for the meal.
    After lunch I went back to my favorite game and ended up $131 ahead.
     I also got some nice presents from the family. Thanks, family. End of report.

You always seem to do well at the casino. Good job, Bob.

Seems is the operative word, Rick. I don't report the bad days. It's unsettling to see a grown man cry.
