  • Tuesday's Lounge now open.

    Good Tuesday morning all you sleepy heads. The pot bellied is fired up and the coffee is hot. Bacon, eggs, and hash browns are merrily cooking away. The water is at a boil for some rib sticking maple flavored rolled oats, and the toast is ready. We also have fresh OJ from Florida .

    It's all of 37 with sunny skys. We are heading all the way to 70 today with lots of sunshine . Good day to mow the grass and do other things outside.

    The wife and I were in New Phily at Lowes to get a new screen door for the front entrance. On the way home we had a doe slip and fall on the road in front of us as a whole flock of them walked across the road. While we sat there waiting for her to get up my wife said is it just me or does she look embarrassed? It did have a strange look on it's face tho. This time of year you have to be careful at night as their all over the place.

    Going to make a run to the LHS or craft store sometime this week to get some mrring supply's for some projects this winter.

    Time for me to head back to the sink to wash some dishes, but first I'll have a coffee and look over the forum. Have a good day and God Bless.

    Good morning Scott. Where the heck is everyone this morning? You'all musta stayed up late to watch the football game last night. I did too.

    Sunny and cold in the greater Boston area this a.m., but temps are supposed to get up to 65. Another nice fall day. That's good because I have plaster castings curing on the railing of my back deck.

    I'm headed to the show in Timonium this weekend. If you're there, stop by and say, "hey"!

    Back to work for me. I'm casting, packing and working on my next kit. Never a dull moment here!

    Have a great day!

        Good morning to the entire crew. We got home late yesterday after driving through Ohio and Pennsylvania. There was some nice color in the forest of PA.

        Today I will hop on the tractor and mow the lawn. It is pretty long and there are lots of leaves mixed in.

        Well, time to go to the Post Office to pick up the mail.

        Have a great day!

          Good morning Scott and crew. Another nice day here in Tidewater Virginia.

          I have to go out and get some fliers for the club’s open house printed and then go for a bike ride. This afternoon, we have some planning and packing to do for a week long trip, starting this weekend, so I don’t think I’ll be doing any MRRing.

          Scott, your story reminds me of my wife’s phone call a number of years ago. She had good news and bad news. The good news was she got a deer the first day of deer season – the bad news was she got it with her new 280Z!

          Have a good day.

            Good Morning All!

            Not much to report from Buckeye land on this cold and cloudy Tuesday.Yesterday I goofed off and got nothing done except replaning my layout using Atlas flex track on cork/Woodland Scenics roadbed for the industrial sidings.I just don't like the looks of highly ballast mine line track as industrial sidings or yard track.It just don't look natural.LOL!

            I bought a new Chevy C10 Pickup truck in '75..7 weeks later I hit a deer and totaled the front end. :erm:

            I shall have a cup and look over the forum.

            Have a good'n! :up:

                Good Morning to all!

                It's a beautiful Autumn day here in central MA.

                Still no modeling.

                Scott, we vacationed in Ohio a few years back, we stayed in Wahlhonding. I never saw so many deer in July.

                My brother lives in upstate NY and has hit about 5 or 6 deer. He even got one of those whistle things that's supposed to scare them off. We kidded him saying that he must of put his on backwards!![:-cry]

                Oh well gotta make a little road trip to Woburn to visit a jobsite.

                  Good Morning Scott, and to everyone who has shown-up thus far,

                  Portlandland has cold blue skies with brisk temperatures. I think it's time to put the A/C into Winter hibernation, and to pick the last of the tomatoes in preparation for Fall tilling.

                  Yesterday, I spent some time cleaning the garage and preparing the downstairs bathroom for painting. Can't wait to re-install the rail-span across the bathroom and resume rail service.

                  Today is a pool therapy day which means that I have to get-in my 11 miles on the Airdyne early.

                  Lessee, our MR club is initiating the electrical aspect of the first area of our layout which involves NCE equipment.

                  That's about it, and it's time to feed my gals! Have a great day!

                    Rain here after a partial day of sun.

                    Continuing the deer discussion, I just looked up the statistics, there were 61,000 car deer crashes, we don't have accidents anymore we crash, in Michigan. My county had 1,500 with 1 fatality and 45 people injured. So far I've had 1/2 dozen deer hits in my driving career, including one in the mid 90s while working that set off the airbags in my patrol car, at 70mph, doing nearly $4,000 damage.

                    Today I worked on fine tuning the decoder and sound on my Alcos, in the process of using the QSI programer my laptop went black on my and will now not respond, only 3 quick blinks of an LED when I try to turn it back on. Decided to go run an errand and my truck wouldn't start, IT had a dead battery. Now back home I'm afraid to touch anything for fear I'll break it.

                    Time to work on dinner.

                    Everyone have a great day.

                    BE SAFE!!

                      I went into the Association of the US Army convention show in DC today. Lots of shiny big trucks (you can't imagine how HUGE an MRAP is until you've actually looked up at one!), and lots of interesting guns of all calibers from 5.56mm to 155mm to dry-fire :-)

                        Dave, I flew on a C-17 that was carrying an MRAP. It sure is big, and it’s impressive that it’s being carried by a C-17 along with about 20 passengers!
