Good morning, crew. I made an early trip to Panera, so there's cinnamon crunch bagels on the counter next to a hot pot of Ashpit Blend. We also have eggs, your way and some Virginia ham.

I'm celebrating 60 years with the same woman today. I'm surprised Pat has put up with me all these years and I'm happy she has.

I'm off to the USO.

Looks like George snuck in the back door.

Congratulations on 60 years George and Pat!

Good morning crew, readers, and guests. It's 40 and clear in N.E. Indiana. The caboose stove is taking the chill out of the lounge. The silver bullet is READY with Derail blend. The special is Luftwaffles and Black forest Ham. Scrambled eggs on the side. All other drinks available.

A little stiff this morning as my youngest son and I attacked the great room walls and ceiling with a TSP wash in preparation for the paint job. The 40+ year age difference was evident. Glad he's helping out with it. He went back South last night. so I got a reprieve until the weekend.

I'll switch to painting LP today, and give my body an R&R day.

Have a Super day!

Rain today in SE NH, but they say we might see sun by the end of the day. I need to head downstairs and finish the warehouse, and then do a big cleanup. The train room/workshop is a much bigger disaster than usual, and that's saying something!

Wife and I agreed: Our favorite anniversary card says on the outside "On our anniversary we celeberate" and on the inside "Another year of not killing each other!" Congrats, George & Pat!

Good morning George, Jim, Dave and the rest of the RR-L Crew. A chilly 43f here this morning with clear skies. Oatmeal and tea for breakfast.

Dave, Married couples hold hands so they don't clobber each other in public.

Not a whole lot planned today, Just living I guess. Everyone have a Fun and Safe day in the COOL Train yard.

60 years is a marvelous accomplishment George and Pat!

I’ll have some of the cinnamon crunch.

Severe clear this morning and relatively calm after 36-48 of wind and rain. Yesterday’s weather wasn’t as bad as forecast but a neighbor in the North said the bouy out on Lake Michigan in sight of our land reported 12’ Waves and a photo on the Manistique site the Doll subscribes to showed quite a hit on the lighthouse there, spectacular to see.

I fiddled around with a mediocre paint job on the SD40-T2 yesterday. It’s going to be a candidate for some weathering.

I placed an order with Micro-Mark yesterday just under $200. I received an e-mail acknowledging the order. Time stamped 1 minute later had an e-mail offering “free shipping” on orders about half size the one I’d just sent. (~$17) on mine yesterday.

More painting later, maybe. Everyone have a good day.

Good morning Crew. Thank you George for opening and a nice simple breakfast. I also like the simple breakfast as I have tired of breakfast tacos, burritos and similar breakfast foods. Congrats on the anniversary and wow 60!

I have to tell Terry about why old folks hold hands and The card info from Dave. So true!

I have a workbench here in Austin and I plan to hide there today. I am attempting to paint LP, mainly MOW workers with the PPE in orange. Terry promised a day off, this is it. This is the first day off since we left 12 days ago. Tomorrow we leave for El Paso and then Palm Springs, then up the Carmel, then we play it by ear. The sort of plan is to be back in Austin in a couple weeks or so. Next week I have reservations to play the last golf course on my bucket list. Pebble Beach twice and neighboring Spyglass. My brother and his g/f will join us for 3 nights and he and I will play Pebble. I cannot wait. Enjoy you day.

Congrats on 60 years, George & Pat!

We have another beautiful fall day here in S.E. Michigan. The sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and leaves are falling.

Bonnie and I have rebounded from the reaction from the shingles vaccination. I think some shopping is being planned.

Have a great day!
