In my youth, I had an Indian girlfriend, (a genuine NBL), to whom I was engaged to be married. She wasn't even slightly weird, let alone batshit crazy...

Until she developed full-blown schizophrenia.
Ouch! Sorry to hear that, AC. :|

Make Your Own Traction Tires with Bullfrog Snot!
Bullfrog Snot is a polymer based compound that you spread on the drivers of some of your more slippery locomotives to make them pull the way they ought to. Extracted from the suffering sinuses of mature Mojave Macho male frogs in mating mode as fast as our rugged wranglers can round 'em up off their free range and herd 'em in....

I've seen that stuff Witness. Should have bought some instead of trying to replace the old traction tyres and then being unable to put my trains back together!
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

sparks, have you considered taking up pipe smoking? It adds a certain degree of gravitas to the appearance of gentlemen of a certain age...

Here, I have something else for you so you can age gracefully.

When you want to camp out and brave the elements this will allow you to sleep comfortably with little if any laughter directed at you.

Run your low voltage now. Also run some 110 (or whatever the fuk you guys use). Just in case. Much better to have a spare outlet than none at all.
