Good morning crew, readers, and lurkers. Stop lurking and say "Hello" as you peep in. The coffee urn is READY with Boilermaker Blend. Bacon, egg, and cheese on an English muffin are up on the serving line. Tea, Deadrail, and pop are hot or cold.

I did try a little painting yesterday, but it was too humid to finish up what i started. So I spent more time pulling apart the airbrush and cleaning it, than getting much painting done.

I was just coming in from the shop, and heard a loud 'boom'. About 30 seconds later, I heard brakes squealing out on the highway. A Van and a pickup truck crashed coming through the curve. A semi-trailer swung off the road to avoid the crash, and ended up in my woods. A medivac chopper landed at the end of my driveway to transport the victims. 4 hours later the highway was reopened, and people were driving 15-20 mph over the posted speed limit, again. Dumb!

Looks like rain this afternoon, so I better get the Orange goat out of the barn, and put it to work.

Have a Super day!

Jim, that kind of excitement you can do without!

Very pleasant in SE NH, humidity and temps will creep up a bit but not like what we had a couple weeks ago.

I worked the air-dry clay and rock castings under the mill foundations yesterday. Today I'll see how it all looks (not sure how much the clay will shrink as it dries) and probably do touch-up. Then tomorrow I can paint the clay to match the rocks.

Some of us can sympathize with today's "Lio" comic:


Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)

Bright sun. Serene gentle waves on the lake and the roar of Husqvarnas as the transformation of our woods has begun.

The Doll has a pot of fresh perc hot and hearty. We’ll join in with Jim’s feed.

I hope everyone survives the crash ok Jim.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Jim, you win the prize for excitement, but definitely of the wrong kind! Hope they're all OK....

Watch out for shrapnel; the orange goats don't like eating that stuff....

It's cloudy, high sixties and headed toward 80 here in the northern mitten today. Grandkids are being grandkids, the railroad is finding all sorts of interesting ways to intervene, and Grandpa can do with a nap.... Gonna be a long day! But they're all having fun, so that's good.

Make it a great day, All, and stay safe!

Good morning Jim, Dave, Karl, Pete and the rest of the RR-L Crew this fine sunny morning.
Be in the low 80's later today. Did get a bit of rain yesterday which was welcome.

Mary had her Cortisone shot and all went well. They didn't put her out just used a local numbing shot. She said that was the worst of it. Hour later we were on the way home. Pain in the hip is gone.

We're still real busy as orders keep coming in. Wish they had been this good all along. Still happy with the way things have gone, just time to hang it up.

Not much else going on except work. everyone have a FUN and Safe day in the Warm and Sunny Train Yard.

Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is overcast and 70 degrees here in S.E. Michigan. We will top out near 77 with showers likely.

Jim, my driving on the curvy roads of north Jersey have made me cautious of entering a curve. I hug the right side, knowing that there is a 50-50 chance that the next car coming the other way will be a foot over the center line in my lane.

Depending on the weather, I might head to the lumber yard to pick up the framing for the storage closet I will be building.

Have a great day!

Good morning all, my bit of NH is sharing Dave's weather. Yesterday I made my first try at a printed paper interior for an illuminated background building. It needs some refinement, but the bang-for-the-buck looks good.

Today promises some more layout time and maybe pictures of Maxwell Square Package if I can successfully refine it.

I will try again and not hit next page instead of moving up! Thanks Jim for getting us going. Accidents are nasty and when Copter shows up, its never a good thing. It is true, no matter the color of your goat, they do not like metal or plastic parts.

Weather here is going to be less humid then yesterday as the heavy duty T-storms moved through between 10 and midnight. We needed the rain but not so much as once. Same thing today, T-storms after 10 tonight is predicted.

Movie day today, no idea what time though. The 3rd day of back to walking every morning 2miles commences in around 30 minutes. The woods will be dripping from the rain last night but that will be fine. The wife is determined we each will be losing weight, I do need she definitely doesn’t. She said compared to some of her classmates Saturday night she is heavy! I told her maybe 6 or 7 but the other 25 or so we’re much heavier. I lost that discussion!

Enjoy your day
