  • Sunday 9/11/2022 Brunch lounge

    Good morning all, as we remember the solemn 21st anniversary of the attack on America. The coffee is READY with Patriot blend in the 'to go' cups. The crew van is ready to head over to "The Greek's" for brunch. Oatmeal pot for those left behind.

    Wow, 21 years ago it was a different world. A whole generation has taken place since 9/11, hard to believe.

    Friday nite we stopped and picked up a pizza at a 'carry out' place. About 4 AM yesterday, both of us were ''sicker than dogs'. We suspect we will never stop at that joint again. I didn't do any thing yesterday due to the proximity requirement.

    Looking forward to some interesting anecdotes at brunch.

    Let's Roll, but never forget.

    Have a Super day!

    Good morning, Jim and crew. It's a day we'll never forget. I think we all remember what we were doing when we heard the first plane and the second plane hit the towers.

    I'm getting ready to watch the F1 race from Monza. No real plans after that.

      Morning all,

      Very sad day we'll never forget but Jim opened the doors and got the coffee brewing, smells good.

      I got tired of watching the Gators try to loose and they did. I turned off the game and watched a train DVD which was more entertaining.

      Have a great day.

        Good morning everyone.

        Jim, thanks for the coffee and save me a seat in the van.

        Cloudy now but chance of showers this afternoon with temps only reaching the low 70's.

        9/11 is one of those you never forget where you were and what you were doing.
        Just like the Kennedy assassination or the first moon walk.
        Never forget indeed.

        Have a great day everyone.
        Follow along as my dog and I travel the country in our van.

          Good morning to the entire crew. It is 67 degrees and cloudy right now. Rain will be moving in shortly and remain for the rest of the day. Temps will stay in the low 70's.

          Indeed that day is burned into my memory. Being responsible for 2000 students, many of whose parents worked in NYC made for a long, hectic day in the school district. My administrative team really stepped up that day.

          I think that I will spend a few hours in the garage working on benchwork construction.

          Have a great day!

            Rain and 60s in Michigan as memories of 9-11 comeback.

              Good morning Guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge Karl. And with the coffee. We just have to get that Coffee, it is the best way as we all know to start off the day.

              72 degrees, and cloudy here in Rhode Island today. Have a train show to go to this morning, so I'll see what's new to bring home.

              Cutting the cab for my new project, soon to post results.

              Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day. I'll see you all on the RR-L Forum.

                Rain, rain and more rain and been raining since ~3 am........and forecast for more through Tues. Break out the water wings...

                Coffee and not enough of it to go this the chocolate peanut butter pancakes I made this morning.

                Get myself together and grind through stuff in the office and then get over to the shop side -- inserted ~100 nbw's into just one side of the trolley I'm rebuilding and not done on that side yet. Can hardly wait to flip it over and get into the other side, .

                Need to clear space in my shop to get into a purge phase - next Strasburg O scale meet is in about a month and more stuff needs to find new homes so I have room to for another 6 month's of builds.......sigh. Separation anxiety looms but stuff needs to go...........

                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.

                  Morning crew. Getting cloudy at the River. Calling for rain over night. Will be towing the boat home Monday morning.

                  Was at my first train show of the season yesterday at Clayton, New York. That's about a 20 minuet drive south from where are. Picked up a couple of items for future projects. Item one is a Magnuson brewery building, second item 6 CB&T NYC Early Bird boxcars for $25. The third item were 2 HO scale delivery trucks. I'll post more info when I get back home.

                  Have a great safe day.

                    Cloudy and a bit humid in SE NH.

                    I've been tracking the rapid progress in Ukraine, the Russians are collapsing as many of us predicted. The problem with so many Talking Heads on TV is they don't understand the approach is not to take territory, but rather to reduce/eliminate Russian forces. When the average Russian, as well as those in the Kremlin, realize their army is losing badly (as represented by KIAs), then maybe they'll rethink their 'special military operation.'

                    Anyway, I've thought through how to organize my scenery supplies, into several big boxes: (1) dirt and ballast in shaker bottles; (2) fine ground cover in shaker bottles, also static grass bags; (3) coarse foam in wide-mouth bottles and 'shrubberies' including static grass tufts. (4) trees. I'm pretty good about labeling what's in shaker bottles. I'm less good about recording which stuff I use on the ground, so I had to go back and do some 'experimentation' to figure out how to extend the scenery in the staging yard with the same colored stuff.

                      Having just been declared a threat to the existence of our country I find that while the activity halfway around the world is interesting, I’m much more concerned for things much closer to home.
