    Good Morning Crew,

    Coffee is on, so come on in.

    I am heading to the JV club tonight, its a meeting night, and this Friday and Saturday is our open house for the holidays.

    I finished painting my 1:1 auto project, and with some rubbing out and assembly, should be driving it soon.

    Not too much to report on the modeling front. High hopes to get back to it very soon, after some straighting up the area.

    Have a great day!

    Good morning Jeff and the rest of the folks who are smarter than us and decided to sleep late!

    I'm taking it slow the rest of the week. I've got some plaster to cast, and some kits to pack for a show this weekend, but that's about it. I've got a couple of Christmas trees to put up around here, but that doesn't constitute work.

    The HUb Division of the NMRA is hosting its annual show in Marlboro, Mass this weekend. If you're around, stop in and say hi!

    Have a great day!

      Good morning Jeff, Scott, and the rest of the crew. It sounds like a classic nor'easter is heading our way tonight and tomorrow. 45-50 mph winds and up to 2 inches of rain. Joy.

      I got all the outdoor Christmas decorations and lights put up yesterday. I hope that they stand up to those winds coming our way.

      I promised Bonnie that I would take her to an outdoor mall some distance away today, so that will take most of the daylight hours.

      I actually cleaned of the modeling bench and auxiliary bench (card table) last night. I now have two of my 'projects in progress' on trays that I can pull out or put away as work progresses (hopefully). Now I really have to clean off the layout and clean the track.

      Well, time to get going. Have a great day!

        Good morning all from windy rainy northwest Georgia.

        They are talking about snow flurries on Saturday.

        I will believe that when I see them for we are talking about the south not New England.

        Maybe some modeling later today.

        Have a great day one and all.

          Good morning crew it is just above freezing and going up to low 40s F today in Southern Ontario. I alway find it amazing the we can get no snow and yet Buffalo NY an hours drive away gets a major snowfall. Hope to get working on my Falsberg station again tonight. Have a great day.

            Good morning Jeff and crew. Supposed to get rain today, but that won’t hurt Pat’s plans. She’s talking about putting up the Christmas tree this morning.

            I hope to finish the design of a warehouse for the club layout today and then build a cardboard mockup before tomorrow night’s meeting. I’m anxious to get started on it.

            Have a good day.

              Good morning folks

              It was 36 F this morning as I headed out. High will be 54 F and are expecting a soaking rain starting this afternoon.

              Last night was music lessons for the kids and we took my son to get a suit. We also continued the Christmas decorating frenzy.

              I hope everybody has a good day.

                Good Wednesday Morning Everybody.

                Cloudy and 36 heading to a rainy 51 by afternoon.

                Thank you for opening Jeff, and I'll have a coffee to get me going.

                Not much on for today as I have to put up the tree in the family room and do some running in town. Tomorrow, my son and I are going out to get our deer, or so we hope.

                Not much to report on the modeling front but I have turned in my list to Santa.

                Time for another coffee and look over the forum. Have a good day and God Bless.

                  Good cloudy, snowy, cold morning from the eastern plains of Colorado. The high to expected to be around 28. 22 tomorrow. Burrrrrrr! (Well it is if you consider it hasn't gotten below 20 degrees yet during the day)

                  Got some fascia up and filling in the holes and splice lines before priming and painting.

                  Have to get ready for work this afternoon. Should be a nice 10 degrees when I get off with more snow.

                  Everyone have a great day.

                    Howdy All,

                    Another afternoon shift at work today. I have to double back and be at work by 6:30 in the morning. Hate them short nights!!

                    Hope all have a great evening.
                    Look out for #1, but don\'t step in #2!
