  • Sunday morning brunch

    Good morning crew, readers, and lurkers, from 55f and CAVU skies! The coffee urn has signaled READY with Railbender blend in the 'to go' cups. The crew van has been shoveled out, and is ready to haul us over to "The Greek's" for brunch.

    As expected, the hay field that was once called a lawn, took a lot longer to mow yesterday than expected. I did get some quality reading and head scratching time in later. Today, looks like a low key schedule. Maybe I'll get to that airbrushing that I had planned for yesterday.

    See you at brunch and. Have a Super day!

    Take the red pill

    Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. Mid fifties now under sunny skies and heading up to the low 80's later today in S.E. Michigan.

    We had a great steak on the grill last evening, bought from the butcher's shop in a small grocery store nearby. Sure beats the tasteless offerings from Kroeger and the other large stores in the area. Similar prices, too.

    Some down time today. A walk, some reading, some computer time, some modeling, checking in with some of the family and an afternoon nap. Sound like a busy day?

      Good morning, Jim, Bruce and crew. We're having a wet day in Tidewater Virginia. Temps are in the 70's, so the a/c is off and the house is open.

      Yesterday, we spent a lot of time planning a trip we're taking this fall. We'll be doing more of that today. We used to land in Europe and wing it, now we seem to plan each day in detail.

      I need to spend some time figuring out how to wire constant lighting for my caboose.

        Much cooler but very wet and humid here in No. VA. The birds seem to be liking it a lot.

        2 cups of coffee and a blueberry bagel.....seems to be too much trouble to put together a proper breakfast anymore....

        Another projects in the shop (waiting for decals to arrive traveling by the Godot Express Service) and paperwork in the home office day in the offing.

        Reading and watching more Wimbledon finals today. I'd watch baseball but I reserve that for inducing naps.

        Car goes into the shop tomorrow and cannot help but feel it may not come back out solely based on the projected cost....

        So it goes...
        In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

          Martin, I admit that I am a sick puppy, and probably "need help," but that "Godot Express" comment has given me all sorts of interesting ideas for a trucking company.... Hmmmm.... Thanks!

        60s and a full dose of that CAVU stuff here. We were up late adding CO2 to the ozone layer from the fire ring out on the beach.

        We were the only ones out enjoying the beach. It was quite except for some fireworks I had left over from the batch the fellow next door gave me. The Doll enjoyed them and all digits are intact.

        Heading home tomorrow so prep for that is on tap for today.

        Everyone enjoy the ride to the Greekā€™s.

          Good (barely) afternoon, all. Sunny and high 70s with a nice breeze in Rockingham County, NH today. Yesterday was a good day: we tried Seashore's GE 25-ton switcher #150 over the switch we'd rebuilt from worn-out streetcar parts. It took the straight (important) route with only a few bumps! It's never going around the 34' radius curved route, they'll have to use something with trolley-width wheels for that. Also working with a new, young volunteer who had a good day.

          This morning my wife and I went to the Raymond NH fair - a small affair on the downtown streets. At the Raymond Depot Museum I had a long conversation with the widow of a B&M signalman I knew via Internet. They have an MDT/NYC ice reefer missing its air brake hoses and I have a pile of expired hoses someone thought belonged at Seashore long ago - a happy synergy.
