Sunset on a stressfilled day in the clear and chilly North. Plenty of folks will be blinded by the bright orb in the sky tonight, few hunters, tho, the harvesters are at full tilt as i cruised home from my mother’s. The big machines currently cutting soybeans look like Pig Pen from peanuts with a huge cloud of dust following them thru the fields. There will be enough hanging in the air to really colorize the sunset.

It sure is nice to sit a bit. In addition to my mother;s usual Miss Daisy persona she lost and misplaced her card holder and took an hour and a half to get ready to the store, as we drove in from the store, there was her neighbor sprawled out on the front sidewalk of her place. Thankfully she was unhurt but had been down for a bit and chilled some. A lot of dead weight in those skinny little old ladies. The neighbor on the other side of my mother did that Sunday and lay there for some time with a broken leg before she was found. She appears to be out for the season.

Well, the Doll just rolled in, gotta run and compare notes, she’s looking harried a bit too. Capt Morgan may sail by before the night’s out.

Good evening. Just after doing a lot of things this morning the wife says, I don’t want to go to the casino. I said fine, I will run some trains. 1/2 hr. later she comes in and says let me try your toy. Gave her a lesson on how to use the Prothrottle and she ran for an hour or so. She usually comes in the trainroom to see a project but hasn’t run in a few years.

Tonight she says she wants a drink, which we never do at home. Gave me one of the bottles of Glenfiddich 21 single malt whiskey. Got a couple bottles for a present from my brother so we opened it. Not bad. She is nervous about her surgery next week, but so am I.

So sit and join us in the Lounge as the fireplace is roaring, the stereo is on and the whiskey is pretty good and plenty of it.

Good morning everyone.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

A chilly start in Joisey today.
There's some light frost out there but the sun will come out and warm things up to the mid 50's

Mark, enjoy your vacation.

Karl, hope you have a much less stressful day today.

Tom, all the best to your wife on her upcoming surgery.

Grocery shopping and meal prep this morning.
Got a lot done yesterday around the house and maybe get a little more done today.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning Crew. Thanks Rick for getting us going. The diet Pepper with a few aspirin will be great. No casino going yesterday as retirement allows for changing our minds at anytime. No idea what today will bring.

Enjoy your day.

Morning

Thanks opening and the coffee Rick.
I'll get the grill going for one of Ricks favorite Taylor Ham (pork roll) and egg on a hard roll with or without cheese!

Over here in South Jersey sunny/31. 50's later.

Tom hope your wife's surgery works out fine.

Not sure what were doing today. But I hope to get to the bench later today!

Everyone have a great day!!

Hazy sun and cold, staying close to home today. Less stress, planned anyhow. Of course, my first SUBMIT REPLY hit went to a page of alphabet soup and apparently didn’t perform the requested function as this is attempt two about 5 minutes later.

So........————————>Submit Reply

Well?

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. I need it this morning.

Jerry, thanks for breakfast.

Sounds like a lot is happening with lounge folks and families. It must be the harvest moon.

No rain today, but cloudy with the high around 67F.

Dental cleaning this afternoon, otherwise...going to chill.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning gang!
Been lurking a bit but not much to report. My wife took the dog (Sheltie) out for a stroll this morning and a mean dog took a nip at her bum but only came away with a bit of fur. To her credit our sheltie didn't bite back, yelp, or run away. She was opting for the lesser-known fear response of "freeze". Maybe she thinks she is a partridge.
Tom, I think you are right about your wife's apprehension about the surgery and she just wants some comfort and to be near you.
Rain showed up on schedule along with the predictable drop off in buyers.
Take care,
Dave

Good evening Crew. I popped open a case of beer, so sit and relax. The beer is a light flavored Wisconsin craftsman brew. New Glarus’s Spotted Cow.

Dave thanks, the wife is better today. I asked her if she wanted a glass of anything while we caught up on NCIS she looked at me like I was crazy. I admit I am a light weight when it comes to booze, but we both had headaches this morning. Both fine now!!

Good morning everyone.

Reg and decaf coffee are ready, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Pepper too.

Mostly cloudy and temps in the low 50's in Joisey today.
A Nor'easter is supposed to move in later tonight and bring lots of rain.

Tom, glad to hear the wife is doing better.

Dave, glad that nothing serious happened to your dog.

Mike, going to the dentist, even for a cleaning, is one of my least favorite things to do.

Karl, computers do funny things sometimes.
I have found that when that happens to me if I hit the back button it takes me back to where I have written my post and I can try resubmitting it again without having to retype it.

Jerry, what are you doing today?

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for the coffee.

I tried an interesting breakfast this week, so I thought I would prepare it for the group. A biscuit cut in half, covered with chopped sausage, scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, and covered with good ole country gravy. It's on the counter. Belly up.

Up early to start brining a couple of turkey breasts to smoke for Mom's 91st birthday party on Sunday. I am so sleepy.

Taking wife to airport for a trip with daughter. The travel time to the airport is about two hours each way, so there goes the day. I want to get back on JoeB's dining room when I return.

No rain forecast for today and a high of 74F.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning. Thanks Rick for getting us going, the diet Dr. Pepper is what I need today.

The wife, daughter and g/kids are heading to a corn maze today. I will be in the trainroom doing something besides looking or only running trains. Have a good day.

Clouds and light breeze, 45-50 forecast for the rest of the day.

I’ll work on the electrical a bit then off late afternoon to take my mother to a dinner of a group she’s a member of.

Enjoy the day all. Rick I’ll try to remember the BACK button the next time.

Afternoon everyone

I put another pot of coffee on if anyone wants some fresh.

Rick today nothing!!

The last two days Diane and I have been climbing over the dunes in Island State Park looking for a shack called JUDGE'S SHACK well after three different places and climbing over the dunes we found it.
Not that many people know of it or ever heard of it.
It was a summer home to a judge who gave it to the state in 2000.
