    It was nice of him to make Stan and Ollie but the size difference is a real problem for me. So I was thinking of doing plan B. I can get two figures that will be sitting down and paint them myself. They will be sitting on the wagon with the Piano in back. I might even find a postman. The Wagon is from,
    Rslaser Kits, and I will just need a horse. I'm sure I can find Suzy.

    I've got the wagon and I've got Suzy and the umbrella coming. All I need now is a Postman. I found Bigfoot but no Postman'

    There is a youtube with a young couple climbing the stairs. They had to stop and rest. He counted 133 steps. I have only 60 and they look really high with just 60.

    I've about had it at 30. With a handrail to help.

    Back when I was working as a security guard in a building in Montreal, I decided to go up to the top floor on my lunch hour - 20 stories.

    Via the stairs.:eek:.

    I made it. Barely. :confused: I was in my late 20s and in pretty good shape.

    I took the elevator back down... my legs were like jelly for a couple of days... :ROFLMAO:

    This wagon has a lot of small parts, but I can do it. This kit maker needs to proofread his instruction sheets. If I was an English teacher, I would have to give him a C-

    This wagon is a bit different from the picture I posted but I can make the changes. I have extra parts because, with this kit, you can make two wagons.

    They don't seem to teach the basics in schools anymore.

    Having dealt with contracted computer tech support "experts" in Asian countries, I sympathize. Their command of the American language taught in local schools is flawless. Their command of American computer technical idioms is severely lacking. Transfer that conundrum to the written word contained in instruction sheets, the kit builder needs to be an expert in analytical logic, and illustrations definitely help.

    Hank you sure put it in the correct terms. Don't just limit it to assembly instructions from other countries. It has become very, very common here as well.
    I feel with her skills Candy will do very well with what she has. So long as she finds the Umbrella. Maybe in models of shoreline eating establishments.

    If you look at their umbrella you can see a different tone of gray in alternant panels and also the size of it. It's a beach umbrella. I have them on order. Of course, I had to get six of them.

    I remember reading resumes submitted to my employer before I retired. It was painfully obvious that an increasing number of job seekers are using software to prepare their resumes and the documents were simply awful. Looking at the punctuation and word usage, you'd think the job seekers were illiterate and maybe they were.

    Many decades ago we put an ad in the newspaper seeking IT candidates skilled in Hewlett Packard mainframes. The newspaper muffed the spelling and printed "Hewpelitt Pookard". We actually received a resume claiming a high level of familiarity with Hewpelitt Pookard equipment, no joke.

    Tell me about it. At work I use a portable computer, which the programming is known to have been contracted to southern Asia. Every time I come to an area where I must enter a number, when I tap the screen it (stupidly) defaults to alphabet instead. Annoying and wastes my time! :mad::mad::mad:

    Long ago we invited bids on new software to manage our business systems. SAP did a presentation for us, handled by a German salesguy. Throughout the narrative, he kept using the term "Data Meadow" and we all sat perplexed, not wanting to interrupt. During a break, someone asked the guy what he was referring to and he pointed to a place where data was entered, a Data Field!

    Six umbrellas. One for the wagon. One to keep the wind out of your hair. And Four to protect your toes at the beach. :ROFLMAO::LOL:

    I used pictures and logic to figure out the size of the crate. Here is one of those pictures
