Chilly and clouds in MI this morning. A hot cereal and green tea sort of day.

We took a brief look down the road at the things at an auction down the street. A 93yr old single lady that had lived in the family house her whole life recently passed away. What an amazing lot of really old stuff. I saw one old toy with a date 1934 stamped into it. An outbuilding had a hit n miss engine, pulley system and belts in it that was amazing. We decided that every antique dealer from 100 miles around was there and nothing was worth waiting all day just to get outbid for something. We returned home, Iíll work on the RR later. She has lots to get ready for a sale at her business this week.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning everyone.

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

Sunny and mid 50's in Joisey today.

Food shopping and meal prep in the AM.
Maybe build a fire, have a coffee and smoke a cigar in the PM.

Tom, it's all about seniority.

Have a great day everyone.


As you think, so will you be.

Morning Rick and thanks for the coffee.

Homemade waffles with butter and Vermont Maple syrup to go with the coffee. Sides of bacon and sausage.

Weather in South Jersey sunny/35.

Not sure what is going on today. No news from the bench.

Everyone enjoy the day!!

Good morning, Gang.
While not quite as exiting as Karl's visit to the estate sale, I cleaned out my hobby area and found all kinds of things long-misplaced. Found some old photos of my 1975 Austin Mini and a poem my son wrote to me for Father's Day many years ago. Did n't get everything cleaned up but I have at least grouped like things together so I don't have to search the entire basement looking for stuff. Then had to fix Mum-in-law's leaky drain in her suite. The awesome contractor who installed the sink had busted the drain pipe and siliconed over the crack and (no surprise) it finally let go.
All this to say...no hobby time despite it being the perfect day otherwise.
Cheers,
Dave

An example of some of the nonsense we deal with on the trains.
Although this is an extreme example passengers like this occur all too regularly.

Rick. I worked for a collection agency for 21 years prior to retirement. We never had anyone go off like that fool.

David, rubber maid type bins for the stuff you keep. So easy to Mark and when your gone the person thatís name is on the bin can decide. We have all the son and daughters report cards, pictures and what ever stored that way.

Karl, we have more rain being sent your way, sorry.

Jerry, thanks for getting us moving this morning.

Tough day here and now itís raining hard! Back from my doctor appointment, I will live another day with of course some medicine adjustments.

Have a great afternoon, see you here after the hockey on Nbcsn

Hi Everyone - It is another sunny spring day here in Brisbane at 7:30 am Wednesday.
I have just brewed some fresh coffee and boiled the billy for hot water (for those who prefer tea). There are fresh pancakes with either treacle or jam and cream whichever you prefer, on the bench.
I have to take my youngest grandson to his new school (starting next year) for introductory "Jumpstart" get together. These sessions are supposed to prepare then for the discipline of school next year (sitting still in class and paying attention to the teacher).
Will be in the Train Shed shortly to do a little bit of work (mostly tidying up at this stage).
Best Regards

Afternoon

After seeing that jerk go off like that Rick.

I'll have a McKenna bourbon on the rocks with a splash of water!!

Nothing to report here today.

Just planning on what I need to finish or start something new.

I'll be back later!!

Rick, what you guys need is a trunk monkey (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hq0mUxRKHQY&list=PLoxADsZ9YforxtjWODy3Kz_8JjLH-Nxp7). She'd get tased and gently laid on the siding. She'd have her wish then. mike

We have been complaining here already about the heat and humidity. (Humidity has already been up around 100%). But I'm sure glad I'm here than in the USA with winter coming on. Here's an image just posted on 500px. https://500px.com/photo/280452311/cass-scenic-railroad-by-walter-scriptunas-ii?ctx_page=1&from=popular
A few years back we rode the Cass, They told us the snow got so deep that they had to use second floor window to go outside!!!

Pretty tho!!

Good morning everyone.

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

A beautiful fall day in Joisey with temps in the upper 60's and mostly sunny.

Happy Halloween!

This talk about s@#$ is really bumming me out.

Mike, back in the day, old timers would throw people off the train in the middle of nowhere.

It's Monday for me again.

Have a great day everyone.



As you think, so will you be.

Trick or treet folks!
