Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Cherry Diet Pepsi are ready to go.

A mix of sun and clouds and a high in the mid 70's.
After being on continuously for almost 3 months I turned the central air off yesterday and opened the windows.

Tom, the chores around the house never stop.

Jerry, what did you pick?

Have a great day everyone.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee.

Griddle is on we have pancakes with butter & Vermont maple syrup. Sides of bacon & sausage.

Weather in South Jersey cloudy/68.

This is not a beach day. So maybe some time in the train room.

Rick I think it will be the Planer. I lost the directions so Marty sent me a copy.
If the train stays cool I'll start it later today...

Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning from So. Wisconsin where there are no planned household duties today. Low 70ís today and basically all week, September in August. Not complaining as I do like the temperature but not low 50ís at night.

I have learned many things as a homeowner but basically what my limitations are. I have pushed the SIL in learning household and outdoor things and he is coming along but now isnít afraid to tackle anything and needs to throttle that down. Oh well we all grow at different speeds. This morning all rolling stock is coming off the track. I am going to work on ballasting this week. All mainline ballast is to be removed and replaced.

Enjoy the day
Tom

Good morning folks,

Rick, as always, thanks for coffee.

Jerry, those flapjacks sound terrific. Thanks!

Tom, good luck with the ballast replacement. That sounds like a big challenge.

Still hot and no rain.

Planning on the work bench today with paint brush in hand. I have those tiny lanterns to paint.

Have fun,
Mike

Mike, time to break out the magnifying glass.

Tom, have fun with the ballasting.
Not one of my favorite things to do.

A nap, bike ride and mowing the backyard are planned for after work.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Taking and daughter to airport this morning, bench this afternoon, and lodge tonight. Busy day.

Really hot today at 105F. Like Rick's cool 70's.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning, it is a very wet day in So. Wisconsin and we need it. I am waiting for the garage door people to show up.

Ballasting doesnít seem to bother me. My issue on the needed replacement is that I used different colors on the main. I understand and have seen different colors on the 14 miles of prototype I am trying to emulate. It just does not look right to my eye and mind. Terry said it looks ok to her which meant it needed to come up. I tackled a 20í section yesterday and it wasnít bad. 3 more 20í sections to go and with my 5 and 8 year old helpers at school I should be done by dinner.

Enjoy the day
Tom

Clouds and upper 70's here today.

Jerry, surprisingly I got it all done.

Tom, nice progress.

Mike, you're welcome to visit any time.

Going to try to replicate yesterday with a nap, bike ride and mow the front yard.

TGIF

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Have a good weekend.

High forecast for 89F today so I got my sweater out... Looks like rain this morning and tonight. I love the rain.

No commitments today, so hope to spend more time at the bench.

Have fun,
Mike

The sun has reappeared in So. Wisconsin after disappearing since Friday. Today we will wind gusts up to 30mph. The movie time today is 3 PM and is the Angel has Fallen. Terryís pick not mine but none of the other 3 in the discussion seemed any better.

The ballast is removed on the main and the Ethanol siding. Some was harder to remove then other sections and I finished right before dinner at 6:15. I did use a lot more isopropyl acolchol then I expected and I have to head to the drug store to replenish the supply. It isnít a perfect removal but the few specks will be covered by new anyway. I am glad though I just use loose ballast at the turnouts. Enjoy your day.

Good morning. The coffee is ready, the diet sodas are very cold and there are fresh donuts on the counter. Yesterday we
saw Angel has Fallen. Enjoyable but holy crepe was it loud. If you have or not seen the 1st 2 movies you will still be able to
quickly follow this movie as absolutely no mention of the prior 2. Worth a ticket for entertainment value. I see where the movie
I really disliked just cleared $100 million in sales, Once upon a Time in Hollywood.

Avoiding the trainroom yesterday and today too. Just lost the feeling after the ballast removal that went well but now seems
like it was a chore. Never fear, the feelings will return. Heck I am still drawing plans for the layout in Austin.

Enjoy the day
TomO

Good morning everyone.

Tom, thanks for the coffee and donut.
Thanks for the movie review too.
I wasn't aware of that series of movies.

Mostly cloudy with a high in the upper 70's and a chance of a t-storm in the PM.

Bike ride this morning and more yard work after.
Already have a load of laundry in the machine.

Have a great day everyone.

Rick, the 1st movie of the series was Olympus has Fallen. Released
in 2013 and the 2nd was London has Fallen in 2016. Decent summertime
movies, bang, bang shot them ups.
