As it looked in late August, our friend showing the Doll the view...we'll be at the left part of this...





Very cool, living on a lake is so nice, great view. Congrats!

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and diet Dr. Peppers are ready to go.

A few clouds and temps in the mid 30's today in Joisey.

Karl, congrats on the purchase.

Only reason I got tested for apnea was because of work.
It's become a big deal because of a couple major accidents on the RR.
If they think you have it you're put out of service without pay till you're tested.
If you test negative you get paid retroactively.
If you test positive that's not the case.
I did it on my own to be proactive and not risk going OOS.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Breakfast today is a simple ham and Swiss cheese omelet with melon, pineapple, and apple on the side. Enjoy.

It's cloudy today and warming to the mid 50's.

Grocery shopping this morning and train club this afternoon. Going to be a full day.

Have fun,
Mike

Good afternoon crew!
Karl, congratulations on that piece of land. Will be a nice view, especially in summer, I think.
Taking a brief respite from an otherwise hectic day. Looks like motorcycle buyers are waking up from hibernation!
Have a good one!
Cheers,
Dave

Good morning from cold Wisconsin. We have a huge storm starting at 6pm with a possible amounts of 8-12Ē of that white stuff. Then Wednesday the world will be closed with possible wind chills of -50.

Rick, how can they force you to take that test, doesnít your union give you protections? Glad you are proactive on this though.

Errand day here so enjoy your day
Tom

Good morning All!

Karl , congratulations on the new property! Nice view!

Follow up on the sleep study. I had 2, both were a waste of time but required. The 1st on was on an exterior wall..long story short... I didn't sleep. The second test was next to a stairwell in a clinic. Door must have slammed 50 times overnight! Yet they said.. oh yes mr...you need this..tend to agree..snoring....unrested...and would wake up suffocating. Better now!

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Jerry, great breakfast. Thanks.

I did the CPAP thing 8 years ago and for me it did wonders. No snoring, but most of all I felt rested in the morning instead of tired all day. I don't think I have missed a night in gear since then.

Had fun at the Texas Western last night. Worked on a yard mostly. Progress.

Family and friends visiting today, then maybe some bench time. JoeB's crew is getting hungry.

Cold at 36F but forecast 63F this afternoon.

Have fun,
Mike

Sun, 13 degrees, 13mph winds, -2 chill. High point for the week. Big snow tonight into Tues. High Wed of 0. Was just at the grocery store for an Rx and 2 items. The place was in full panic mode, I imagine 20-30 minute line to check out. 10 or less do it yourself line was a breeze, tho. January, Michigan, just another day. We had lots of nice up until mid week, so no complaints here.

Everyone have a good day. The Dollís daughter just arrived, early, for a birthday. Daughter is 40 tomorrow. 41 years ago we had the worst snow of my adult years we were snowed in for 4-5 days. That was right after my youngest was born.

Welcome to winter, all.

Wishing all of you well who are supposed to get s@#$.

Tom, because of a couple serious accidents where engineers fell asleep it became a safety issue.
And the FRA wanted it.
We protested that it wasn't a pre-employment condition. but they didn't care.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

9 degrees, 15mph wind and heavy snow. Weíre in either 4-8 or 8-12 forecasts depending on what ever Ma Nature decides. It appears to be light powdery stuff as it falls, drifting in places. MAY have to go out for the Dollís hair appointment, but that is a later in the day decision. High confidence in her vehicle handling it. 41 yrs ago we had 10-20 that was a challenge.

The visit with the Dollís girls and entourages went well yesterday.

Everyone have a good day, chilling and blowing out the window. Nice on this side of the glass.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Migas are on the counter for breakfast. Help your self.

Sounds like the north is really getting the expletive deleted weather. Hope you stay warm.

It is 43F rising to 60F this afternoon.

No plans for the day except moving furniture around.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning from white covered So. Wisconsin. We got 4.7Ē at the airport for the official total. They claimed we were getting at least 8-12Ē of white. As Karl says, yesterday this area was in full panic mode. The grocery store on Sunday at 1 is usually is a great time to shop, worst than a Friday after 5, so ridiculous, the store ran out of water. What a joke, even my dentist called at 7 last night canceling todayís appointment. Less than 5Ē of snow is nothing just an inconvience in Wisconsin.

Rick, I get it. I donít feel itís right though.

Stay warm, comfortable and drive safely.
TomO
