    Good morning folks

    It was 48 F as I hit the semi-empty roads this morning. Our high will be 73 F with no rain in sight.

    I have had a couple of busy days. Work has been a little crazy with various crises that had to be addressed from the moment I walked in the office. Today there does not seem to be any brewing. It maybe the fact that half the office is off today.

    I have been working the last few nights on things for our Cub Scout pack’s upcoming Blue and Gold Banquet and helping my son with his Citizenship in the Community Merit Badge. He is making a Power Point presentation about his community and this weekend we will most likely go around and take some pictures for it.

    We have been straightening up the basement around the layout the last few nights. Some bins and boxes containing holiday decorations and some form the carpet installation were piled around the layout. We put them in their proper places and cleared off the workbench. I still have a box of scout stuff and paperwork to go through that needs to be moved.

    We have grocery shopping to do this weekend. We have nothing special planned for Easter, just a family dinner.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

      Good Morning All!

      It is truly a beautiful day here in central Mass. Just spent some time catching up on forum news.

      I have been building two structures for the RWRy. A power center/bicycle shop and a Bar& Grill. The Bar took on a life of it's own.

      Later today we head into Boston to bring the college boy (and his girl) home for the holiday. Easter will be spent with family. I'll provably do some maintenance work on the docks also; then they will be ready to go in when the water level settles out and warms up a little bit.

      Enjoy everyone!

        Good morning to the entire crew. It is sunny with temperatures heading into the upper 60's today in northern New Jersey.

        It is time to begin the spring cleanup of the yard. I will take the plow off the tractor today and get it ready for its share of spring work.

        This evening we pick up our oldest son at the airport. He will be staying for Easter.

        Other than that, we don't have much planned.

        Have a great day!

          Good morning crew. I will have a cup of coffee and then look over the forum. Taking the day off today so of course it has to turn off cool and rainy. Will work around the house and maybe get some ground goop spread on the RR. Have a good Easter weekend. Tom

            Good morning crew. Thanks for the coffee, Jerry.

            I’m going to take advantage of the beautiful weather an go for a bike ride. Our son and family, from northern Virginia, are here for the weekend, so no MRRing, but plenty of fun.

            Have a good day.

            With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine.

              Good Morning All!

              Not much to report from the land of Buckeyes on this sunny Good Friday..I went on my walk this morning and took my rest at my usual spot and saw 2 NS trains about 1 1/2 hours-slow at best.Yesterday I worked on some HO cars from the bone yard box and got 2 more fix.I think the others is beyond fixin' without buying several dollars worth of parts-including steps.Tomorrow the club is having a general clean up day since our train show/open house is next Saturday.We will meet next Friday night to set up the dealer tables.Due to my health issues I help line the tables.

              I shall have a cup and look over the forum

              Have a good'un! :up:

                Good Friday Morning Everybody.

                It's 63 under bright sunny sky's on this Good Friday morning, and we're heading to 82 by the afternoon.

                Thanks for opening Jerry and I'll grab a coffee and sit a spell.

                Tom, be very careful when nothing is happening at the office. It's been my experience when things are that way that disaster is laying in wait under a desk among the dust bunnies ready to spring into the workplace a-snorting and a farting, and a stomping ruining the whole day.

                Bruce, I'm going to wait before I take the plow off of the tractor. If I take it off now a massive cold front and snowstorm will move in and bury us in a 2 or 3 feet of snow, and people will be mad at me and call me bad names, insult my intelligence and ancestry !!!!!

                A friend of mine from where I retired from sent me a email this morning about being attacked by a goose on his way to the locker room. He has been bumping the goose with his car bumper for the past few days and last night the goose was waiting for him to drive by and attacked him. He said he had his window down about halfway and the goose pocked his head in and hissed at him. I told him that he shouldn't have bumper him in the first place, and Mr. Goose will be watching him for a long time.

                With such a beautiful day I must be outside working on a host of things. So I'll be busy all day. The wife has come down with a bad cold so I'll be burning dinner tonight.

                No modeling planed for the weekend.

                Better have another coffee and look over the forum. Have a good day, enjoy the warm temps, and God Bless.
