  • Sunday morning brunch lounge

    Good morning crew, readers, and lurkers, from 29 f and overcast N.E. Indiana. The coffee urn is READY with Railbender blend in the 'to go' cups. A few scoops of oatmeal left in the pot for the hermits, unplug the pot if you're the last dipper. The crew van has been fueled up, shoveled out, fresh pine tree scented cardboard hung from the mirror, and brake check completed. Hop in, we're headed over to "The Greek's" for brunch. New guys, watch out for Elvira, she's actually a witch, and will turn you into a frog (green type, and unpowered) in a NY minute.

    More tutorialzzz, and tips on the drawing program yesterday.

    See you at the restaurant, Have a Super day!

    Good morning, Jim and crew. Just coffee for me, we're going to breakfast with our grandson and his girlfriend.

    I sold a few things at yesterday's white elephant table. The good news is that I didn't buy anything.

          Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is 29 degrees and snowing lightly right now in S.E. Michigan. It should stay below freezing and give us about an inch or so of snow.

          I painted on the sky backdrop again yesterday and will put that part of the process to bed today. This week I will tackle the mounting of the backdrop.

          Have a great day!

              Usually sticky snow is gone from branches, etc the next day. But yesterday was as pretty a snow day as I can remember after Thursday night/Friday morning's snow.

              Cloudy and seasonal today, more snow tonight and tomorrow. No 'pretty snow', this storm is accompanied by gale wind warnings.

              Yesterday I did some more work on the ball signal, adding the spikes to the pole, staining some of the woodwork, and building the frame/testbed.

              Good morning Guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening the Lounge Jim as usual for the coffee. Nothing better than a cup of coffee first thing in the morning.

              Cold 33 degrees and cloudy for todays weather, here in the Ocean State, Rhode Island.

              I posted some more progress yesterday of my 1960 Chevy Impala build.

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

                Coffee and some fresh choc chip pancakes,

                Did a 3 hour hands-on clinic yesterday - part 1 of my resin casting clinic where everyone gets to make molds; couple of weeks we get back together and pour resin....and make a really good mess,

                Colder today and maybe some snow, sleet, rain, frogs or herring falling out of the sky.....but firewood is in and dry for football time. Ripped through another book and 1/3 into the next; think I need to step up my reading glasses - maybe 2.5 or 2.75....

                Some time at the work bench this morning, I think. I have open RTV to use so anything I was thinking about making a mold is getting dragged out today and prepped.

                Got galleys for the journal and the galley for the magazine is several days late; 2 days to get that done for the printer.............sigh. I hate working tight up against deadlines.

                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 all.

                  Snowing here. We're only supposed to get to 33 degrees today, so I suspect when the snow stops, I'll go push some snow, looks like only an inch or three. Found the rolling stock item I was looking for yesterday, along with the rest of my rolling stock. I am going to try to put them back in their original boxes, figure out which ones to save and which ones to get rid of. The local club models the more modern era, and I've told them I'll give them the extras.

                    Good morning. It's 33 with forecast of 44F and rain in northern WV.

                    I worked on the house projects yesterday; that will continue today for a little bit. This afternoon, the N scale group of our club will meet to discuss a plan for the new layout. Maybe after that I will get some modeling in. I have walls to cut out.

                    Have a good one.

                      A bit of white added to the grey monochromatic monotony this morning. Doesn’t look a bit like Dave’s idyllic New England scene…not even close.

                      I did manage to find an allusive lost on the floor piece from my airbrush and did some painting yesterday. I also wrapped up another book, another of WEBGriffin’s verbose volumes. Watched some of the KCvJAX game. So that’s what a playoff game looks like? Later joined the Doll and watched an old classic 12 Angry Men…weird, seeing a room full of guys in shirt and ties.

                      Well, the Doll’s daughter and a grandbabe just arrived. See y’all at Elvira’s lair…

                        Good morning, all. I'm south of Dave and closer to the Atlantic, so I'm expecting mostly rain from this next storm. Yesterday's on-line meeting ran over and then related business ate the rest of the afternoon. Today I'll finish looking over the forum and then shut off the computer and go upstairs.
