    Thanks, Tom. Seeing some of your work was a motivating factor for me.

    Jim, I am a little late to the party, but as usual your ability to capture the essence of an object or scene is superb.

    OK .. Have to ask!
    Did you fabricate that boom?
    How did you make the traveling block above the bucket?

    The boom, steam engine and block came from a Jordan steam crane kit. I cheated a bit. Don't tell anyone.

    That's cool! I could use that on my On30 log tram project. I wonder what year those came into use? Oh, I found out the early gas powered ones where in use in the 1920s. Perfect.

    I just read in the news that Zalma, MO has ceased to be an incorporated town. I hate to hear that.

    Hmmm. Any rationale, Jim? Do you or anyone know if the meat locker's still there? We had a second cousin(?) who had acreage outside of town; we'd visit at least once a year to buy our side of beef from him, and then would go as a family to pick it up at the Zalma locker.

    Best Regards,

    In Bob Broeg's St. Louis Cardinals' Encyclopedia, he notes former Cubs/Yankees manager Joe McCarthy was asked who the perfect baseball player was, to which McCarthy replied "What couldn't Frankie Frisch do?" I think of this story when I look at this and ask myself "What can't Jim James do?" :)

    Splendidly done, Jim. Would enjoy seeing a write-up or additional details on how you went about it.

    Best Regards,
