Whats even worse, is going in, buying a lovely kit, heading home and forgetting it on the train. Hopefully somebody made a nice job of my Jagdtiger!! At least you´ve still got the money in your wallet!

I feel you pain, it's heck getting old. I REALLY hate it when I go out to the garage and when I get there I've forgotten what I went there for.

I guess you can console yourself that it just wasn't meant to be and maybe there will be something even better the next time you make that trek.

PS: We don't have the best hobby shops in the world here in the 'Springs, but at least they are close by. I can't imagine a 45 mile trip to the LHS.

At least you weren't buying gas at a self serve station or driving through Burger King. I have done both and it is way more embarassing. At least you got to go to the hobby shop.

As my mother used to say " If someone doesn´t have head, have to have good legs".
The same happens to me a lot of the time with many things. Personally I got a problem with the keys, they make me walk a lot...

Last thursday I went to pay for my classes in college, a half hour drive one way. I got there and realized I had forgotten my checkbook. So I drove back home and got it and drove back to school and pulled out my wallet and realized I had my check card, which the school would have accepted.

I do that on a daily basis. Get on the computer to check on something, see something get distracted two hours later get off computer then realize I didn't accomplish what I had planned and got distracted again, luckily I remembered before I signed off the second time. I find myself doing that more and more latele. Curse E-bay!!!!!!!!!!
