    "work" continues and I have created all the required CTC and Road Crossing
    bungalows. All have the correct name etc. I am adding all non-linked details
    so the #20 turnouts have US&S switch motors and all the #20 turnouts and
    crossovers will also get heaters as SR(NS) requires north of the TN/GA line.
    Manual turnouts off the main or controlled sidings will also have non-operating
    electric locks. Dudley Evans had chosen a number of default structures, most
    of which I will use, but I will also add a number of better items from the library
    too.

    I look to issue this one in the fall.

    Colleagues, please give me some thought. My dentist discovered two red spots
    on my soft palette and so I am gargling salt water until I see her again June 3.
    If not improved a biopsy will likely be required. Never used tobacco products
    or drank, but being over 40 (by 42 years) and being a guy are two risk factors.

    Hoping and praying that both spots will be gone by the next appointment. Sometimes these things can be nothing more than an encounter with food that may have been to hot and left a burn spot where it touched the palette.

    Keep us posted.

    Clinton, MD. Oh my, I think it is closed now, but I learned to fly at Hyde field back in
    1970-1971. Got my license, single engine land, in August 1971. My late wife had a mortal
    fear of light planes, thanks to an uncle that owned one, was a A&P Mechanic with Eastern,
    and managed a small airport in Georgia, so it was either her or flying. I gave up flying after
    only 800 hours, mostly in Cessna-172 and Mooney M20G & F types.

    Jerry, Hyde Field is still barely open. It took a big hit after the events of 9-11 shut it down for a while, opening back up, but the air traffic never returned like it did, much moving down to the Rose Valley airport a few miles away. The only thing that keeps it open now is Maryland State keeps some of their emergency helicopters and equipment there. There's only a hand full of planes that still fly in and out. We keep hearing it's going to be turned into town homes and a subdivision, but it hasn't happened yet.

    Thinking of you Jerry and sending prayers.
    I'm glad you got to the dentist. I haven't since before coVid.

    Rose Valley never made much sense to me. The approaches were difficult from either direction and it
    also conflicted with one of the Hyde Field runways that appears to have been removed. That shorter
    runway was a difficult one too. I remember when a guy tried to take off with a full load in a Cessna
    Cardinal I believe it was called. Wound up mowing down the tops of several trees, and fortunately
    the last stop was not severe. There were injuries but none very bad. The airplane was a total loss
    though. Then there was the hi-tension power line east of the field. We all knew about but one day
    an executive airplane from New Jersey was doing an approved instrument approach and hit it. All
    on board died in that one.
