Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Hope your week transpires without incident.

Thanks for the well wishes folks. The doc says my ticker is in great shape and dispelled the rumors about 10 years. He said that was mainly for people who continued to smoke, eat badly, and not take medicine. He has a lot of patients who are at 30 years on the bypass. I'll take another 20 years.

Jerry, the mill is progressing nicely. Looking forward to photos.

Tom, having a layout helper is making a difference. Progress is terrific.

Larry, about putting up the decorations: Bless your heart!

Karl, that's a scary event. Sounds like the north is turning into a camping experience. Good luck with the fixes.

The high is 60F today, so I think I'll smoke ribs this afternoon. Working in the shop again, baby steps.

Have fun and stay safe,
mike

Good morning or evening wherever in the world you are.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Mostly sunny, with a high near 46.

Karl, good luck with the knobs.

Tom, you're layout has grown quite a bit.

Larry, sloppy joe's mmmmmmmm.

Jerry, congrats on the progress.

Philip,

Mike, very good news from the doc.

Back to work for me.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning from Wisconsin. It is 28 heading to 30 today with freezing drizzle which will create nasty roads.

Rick, thanks for setting up the day.

Mike, good news from your doctor.

Philip, crap happens and sometimes things disappear.

Jerry, nice.

Larry, sounds like the way Terry makes sloppy Joeís

Karl, are you able to relax in the UP yet or it still go-go time.

Rick: The layout room is not the biggest space I ever had but not smaller by much. I am still using the CNís Valley Sub as my base of the layout. But have expanded it from Junction City
south to Necedah. I was going north from Junction City to Wausau. I also am including the full wye at Junction City and the crossings that I had omitted in my original builds. I will build another paper mill in Wisconsin Rapids and maybe the small one in Nekoosa. Another feature omitted was the main running through Junction City from Superior, Wi. to St. Point and to Fon du Lac. I need to research the subdivisionís current name. I have hundreds of pictures of this line from 1995 up to 2002 when it was the WC. I had a very narrow focus of 2005 then changed to 2015. This time itís a freelance version. I am looking forward to this.

Greetings,

Tom I'll have to check out FB and see some of your work; sounds like your "going right to town". My wife's sloppy joe's are soooo much better than what comes out of a can!

Karl glad to hear that the stove thing wasn't that bad; still scary stuff when you least expect it.

Mike that's great news about the "ole ticker"; that will be one thing off your mind. Shop time...have at it!!

Philip like your pic..that's funny.

Rick thanks for the java and the sloppy joe's were very tasty. Have a great day at work.

Jerry enjoy your mill time.

Snow's in the air and 36 degrees and that's about as warm as it's going to get today. Took down the last few lights this morning and everything is put away until next year. Maybe some bench time latter. Started working on the lathe yesterday...taking my sweet time.

Have a wonderful day. Be safe and stay healthy.

Good day everyone!

Snow here yesterday for 1 day. Had some good fun outside, but that's it. Sunny today but temps around -3C to +2C.

Rick thanks for the tea!

All quiet on the On30 front as i am working on the HO layout. I need to finish off some big tasks on the HO scale one in order to clear space in the center of the room where the On30 island layout will reside.

I just removed some lettering from an On30 Porter and made it undecorated now :).

Wondering about some On30 freight car choices/options (if 18' gons should be used for ore, or if i should go for the side dump mine cars, and if ore trains had a caboose or not...).

All the best
Yannis

A chance of sprinkles between 11am and 3pm. Mostly sunny, with a high near 45.

Yarris, good to hear from you.
I can't help with you're question, but I think that's part of the fun of On30 that you can do pretty much anything you want.

Larry, take your time with your project and stay in and away from the s!@#.

Karl, more s!@# talk.

Tom, have fun with the research and I've always been more of a freelancer.

How's everyone else doing?

MLK day so the RR is operating on a weekend schedule.
I report at 10 instead of my usual 5:46 but work till 7 instead of 2.

Have a great day everyone.

Rick thanks for the cup-o-joe. It's nice that you got to sleep-in but the other end sucks; especially if you have to be to work @ 5:46 the next day...short night. And yes I'm taking my time to do the best job I'm capable of doing while enjoying myself at the same time.

The rest of the Crew enjoy your day whatever comes your way.

A brisk 30 outside and that's about as warm as it gets this fine day. Making a trip to Hobby Lobby this afternoon for a set of "needle files" so that I can continue on the machines. Tried to get along without them...but not going to work. Asked the Mrs to tag along, which she rarely passes up a chance to go to Hobby Lobby. Maybe a takeout dinner is in order.

Have a great day. Stay warm, be safe, and stay healthy.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee.
Have a safe day at work.

Weather in South Jersey sunny/40. Later on 46.

Dr. appointment at 2. Need to have some cancer cells frozen on my neck.
No big thing it's nothing serious. Kind of like nipping it in the bud!!

Maybe some bench time after that.

Everyone have a great day!!

Morning, Thanks for the coffee Rick!

I remember when I first logged on to RLF in 2004. Greatest forum ever!

I got a PM from Mike Chambers (Casey Feedwater) about forum etiquette and the customary code of polite behavior in society or among members of a particular profession or group. Thanks google!

I was ragging on some poor soul (dentist) about financial status...To make a long story short Mike ended the private message with these four valuable words.

"Look before you leap"

Have a great day!

Philip

Good morning everyone!!!

Rick many thanks for the tea! Cold over here but no snow... just ice where there was water, so attention is required while driving along glossy parts of the road.

Jerry all the best with the appointments!

Shops finally opened here, so i got myself a couple of pva glue tubs since i was out of stock after 2 months.

Have a good one everyone.

Howdy folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Looks like everyone is doing okay. Persist!

It's 69F, but windy. Working on the patio to reconfigure everything.

Have fun and stay safe,
mike
