      Morning Gents,

      Jerry thanks for opening the new Lounge....wow vol. 31.....seems like we just opened vol. 30
      not long ago.

      Rick thanks for the coffee this morning. Great photo and enjoy OK.

      Mike good luck getting the loft rearranged and enjoy the Chowder.

      Karl had to laugh at the joke.....smart hobo.

      Louis how's the project coming along.

      Ron glad you got home safely.

      Tom O between the grandkids and meals out sounds like you need a day
      to just kick back and relax.

      A sunny 45 with a high of 70 here in New York. Had a great time at the Daughters yesterday, Went to the
      Farm and man was it ever packed with people. Didn't stay there too long but picked up a couple jars of
      homemade jams. Gotta just love a good PB&J. Started the door end of the Shop which gave me fits adjusting
      the measurements for the new width but i think I've got it.

      Have a great day everyone and enjoy the nice weather while you can. Be well and stay safe.

        Larry, the farm trip sounds like fun. The shop is looking good.

      Good morning everyone.

      Coffee, tea and sodas are at the ready.

      Weather here in Cheyenne, OK: Showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm, then showers after 1pm. Temperature falling to around 52 by 5pm. Northwest wind 9 to 13 mph becoming northeast in the afternoon.

      Larry, PB&J's are one of my favorites and might make some for lunch today.

      What's everyone's plans for today?

      Haven't heard from Roland in a while and I hope he is doing much better.
      Roland if you read this stop in and say hello.

      This is a pretty area and had planned on staying longer but I think we're going to cut it short here.
      Trails and any area with grass are covered with grass burrs and they are constantly get caught in the dogs paws.
      We started to do a hike and after a couple hundred feet the dog wanted to go back to the van.
      Not sure if we'll leave this afternoon or tomorrow morning and not sure where we'll go next.

      Have a great day everyone.

        That's a bummer about the burrs, and yes they do a number on the dog's feet (also bare feet).

      Warm an sun here this morning. Temp went to 75 yesterday while we were working outside. I did some painting of that porche….can you guess the color?

      While one might hasten to answer Green…the answer I got was the color is WRONG….with, “ but…as long as YOU like it…It seems the paint I bought a few weeks ago doesn’t match the green of the paint she bought for the shutters, that didn’t match the old color, either. As of now it’s a keeper anyhow. She even ran me to town for a little grease pill for “dinner” followed by a decent sunset:

      The sky was red because of all the dust from the farmers harvesting beans, soy variety, at a massive effort. In town there were over a dozen big rigs in line to dump at the grain elevator, photo to big to post….

      So, until next time:

        Thanks for the photos. The fall colors are beautiful. That paint color sounds like "who's on first".

      Good morning Guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening the lounge Jerry. Nothing better than a cup of coffee to start the day off.

      55 degrees and cloudy here in the Ocean State, Rhode Island.

      Not sure what my day will bring, other than a eye Doctor appointment this morning at 10:30.

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

      Morning everyone

      Rick thanks for the coffee.
      Smart dog you have there!!

      Weather in South Jersey cloudy with showers today high of 61.

      Karl you have that look on your face what do you mean I picked the wrong green!!
      Nice picture of the sunset. I guess the harvest is in full swing there.

      Started the other end wall yesterday.
      Hopefully I can get that finished today with the weather being the way it is.

      What's on your agenda today??

      Everyone have a wonderful day!!
      Jerry

      Karl, Paint weathers, so in 3 years the color of the greens will match.

      Good morning from warming wet So. Central Wisconsin. It’s very windy again today with gusts in the high 20’s.

      Lounge 31, wow! I brought back all the booze that I safely locked away a couple days earlier then the move over. All now put in the bar and available 24/7 for your responsible pleasure. I will have a sugar free 7up for something different this morning. I already drank my daily Diet Dr Pepper that has caffeine.

      I was thinking of a day trip to the CP yards in Milwaukee near the big casino, but not in the rain. I need my own pictures of the prototype for weathering. I really need the ends of the cars. My current weathering project has me baffled. 5 Centerbeam cars to be medium weathered. I have done 20 pulp cars for this guy and we did understand each other. He threw me a curve yesterday. He now wants one of the 5 to look like it needs to be shopped and re-painted, he wants a Rustbucket. Looking at pictures yesterday morning and sending them for his approval he kept saying no. I really couldn’t find a rustbucket Centerbeam car. Finally he calls, says do to the BCIT car like what I did for his pulp cars. Ok!

      Then he says for the 3 remaining cars he will send back my pictures I sent. Those weren’t medium! So, 5 cars to be medium weathered trending towards heavy. Now become 1 heavily destroyed rust bucket, 3 even closer to Rustbucket status then even heavily weathered. There is one finished Centerbeam that he approved and I put back in the box Friday. Thank you for that. I prefer to use pictures to lead me in a direction for weathering. This will either be super fun or a nightmare for this next car!

      Good Morning,

      Rick thanks for the coffee. I can't imagine those "grass blurs" felt too good on Star' paws; animals usually
      know when something's amiss. Have safe travels no matter which direction you head in next. Yup PB&J rocks!!!!!
      I've been wondering about Roland too; hope he stops by soon.

      Karl you have that look of "what the hell" on your face. Her's a tip: next time send the Doll for the paint then it's
      on her. Nice sunset. The guy on the golf cart really needs to eat a few cookies.

      Louis good luck at the eye Doc.

      Jerry have fun with the other wall.

      Tom O you certainly have more patience with people than I would have; hope it works out for you.

      Philip glad to hear from you.

      Hope the rest of the crew are doing well.

      A cloudy 56 with a high of 70 here in New York. Not much going on here, although I am working on the first end wall
      for the Shop so we'll see what happens.

      Have a wonderful day. Be safe, stay healthy, and safe travels.

        Larry, the end wall looks good. It is said there is a prototype for everything, I have not seen a building wall held together with duct tape...;-}

    • #12
      Good morning folks,

      Coffee and soft drinks are on the counter. This morning's breakfast is simple Belgian waffles with strawberries and whipped cream or maple syrum and butter plus assorted sausages. Belly up...

      Looks like fall is happening everywhere. Weather here is 48F now forecast for 79F later. Maybe some rain tonight.

      The chowder meal was a hit and tasted so good. Yesterday I made lobster ravioli in a cream sauce. I did not check my blood sugar this morning... Hope to bake brotchen and sourdough loaf today.

      What's the gang up to this week?

      Have fun,

      Good morning everyone.

      Mike, thanks for the coffee and breakfast.
      All that food you're making sounds delicious.

      Weather in OK: Sunny, with a high near 68.

      Larry, how'd the end wall turn out?

      Philip, hope you had a good one yesterday and a better one today.

      TomO, I know you'll do a great job on those cars and your customer will be happy.

      Jerry, other wall done?

      Louis, hope the eye doctor visit went well.

      Karl, nice sunset picture.
      I'm sure that's MSU green.

      How are all our regulars and lurkers doing?

      Rainy day here yesterday which was OK because I had cooking to do, pictures to process and coffee to drink and books to read.
      Today will be a travel day.
      OKC is about two hours east of here.
      There's a Costco there and a gym.

      Have a great day everyone.

      Morning Gents,

      Mike thanks for the coffee and breakfast....tasty. Sounds like your cooking up a storm
      and it's sounds delicious. Enjoy. I guess you haven't seen some of the "hillbilly fixes"
      I've seen; around here duct tape is a staple item.

      Rick sounds like a productive day yesterday. How does Star handle the quiet days?
      The end wall came out well and I posted a photo over in our thread.

      Hope the rest of you guys are doing well.

      A sunny 46 with a high of 73 here in New York. Tech is coming sometime this morning
      between 9 and noon for the annual furnace cleaning and tuneup. Sadly we'll be needing
      the heat before long. Not sure If the bench is in the cards today or not.

      Have a great day. Be well, stay safe, and safe travels.

        Larry, smart to do the furnace tune up early. So many folks wait until it doesn't work.

      Good morning Mike, Rick, Larry, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening the lounge Mike. Nothing better than a cup of coffee to start the day off.

      61 degrees and dense fog here in the Ocean State, Rhode Island. You can hear every fog horn around.

      Not sure what my day will bring. My eye Doctor appointment yesterday went well with no changes to the vision, but the cataracts moving in slowly is an issue down the road.

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