    Good morning Dave and the rest of the crew. It is not only the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, but also our wedding anniversary. Bonnie and I have been married 45 years as of today.

    The sun is shining here in the Jersey Highlands with temps just at the freezing mark. They had predicted that yesterday's rain would end as snow over night, but we stayed all rain. I did get the plow and tire chains on the tractor yesterday, so I am ready whenever we do get some snow.

    We do get a good accumulation of snow here on the hill quite often. The snow scene in my Holiday Card in this year's thread was taken on the road in front of our house two years ago.

    I will help Bonnie bake some Christmas Cookies to send to our son who has been deployed to one of the 'stans' for a few months. We are not quite sure where he is exactly, but we do have his APO address.

    We will go to one of our favorite restaurants for our anniversary dinner tonight.

    Have a great day!

        Top of the morning to Dave, Bruce and Jerry. Yes, Dave, we should never forget those who gave their lives to make our world a better important date, for sure.

        Bruce and Annie, Happy Anniversary! Enjoy that dinner tonight. Lots of recollections, I bet!

        Jerry, enjoy your company and have an awesome day.

        as for me, it's off to an "open mic" with Chris (LVN) and a few other musicians at the local legion hall. Then I play at mass at 5:00 PM and take my guitar to a friend's 50th surprise party for the evening. He is a musical buddy and there should be a couple of handfuls of talented musicians there. Yup, a musical day.

        But, for now...I head down the street to my friend's workworking shop to see how my new carrying case for my garden railroad steam locomotive is coming along! Have a great day all! [:-apple] [:-apple]

            Yeah .. those left are fewer every day. I saw a WWII vet at Walmart yesterday and thanked him for his service - won't be that long until that will not be possible any more.

              Good morning all. Thanks for fixing breakfast on this cold snowy morning in Nevada.

              Happy Anniversary Bruce and Bonnie.

              Judy's Uncle Phil was on the West Virginia during the attack until she sunk.

              He had to jump overboard and swim to shore. Phil spent the rest of the attack

              under a truck. Can't blame him I would have done the same.

                Mornin' All!

                17F, with a wind chill of +3 here in the white, windy northern mitten today.

                Happy Anniversary Bonnie and Bruce! May you have many more to celebrate!

                And yes, pause to remember those who gave their all at Pearl Harbor.

                Eggs, bacon and coffee sound good, Dave, and I just laid in a stash of doughnuts for those who need a breakfast of champions to start their engines. They're over on the counter, there.

                It's retail season, so Heigh Ho, Heigh Ho, it's off to work I go.

                Stay warm, all.

                  Thanks for the well-wishes all. As luck would have it, some friends just called and asked if we would like to join them at a Rod Steward concert tonight. So plans have changed. We will go out for lunch and then to the concert in Newark tonight.

                  How could I say no to going to see Rod Stewart?

                    Good morning crew! Happy Anniversary Bonnie and Bruce! 45 years is quite an accomplishment these days, and I wish you many more happy years together.

                    On this anniversary of a tragic day, let's take a moment to remember and give thanks to all those who have served, or are currently serving our country.

                    The sun is shining after a night of rain. No snow, and I hope we avoid snow this winter all together. I'm glad you are ready for it Bruce, but I hope I don't have to start up the snow blower at all.

                    I've been enjoying a couple of days off work these past few days and have been getting quite a bit of work done on the railroad. I'm trying to get the rest of the fascia up on the layout. The second level is now finished and am about 1/2 done around the lower level. It sure is making a difference in making the railroad look even more finished. At the same time, track laying is progressing and I hope to get even more done today.

                    Have a great day!

                      Morning everyone. It's -17 Celsius or 1 Fahrenheit. Either way it's cold! Maybe some snow this afternoon. I was listening to a science show yesterday and the host was reading the weather report for the Curiosity rover on Mars: 1 degree Celsius with a chance of dust storms. Right now that doesn't sound too bad! (aside from the lack of atmospheric pressure that will boil you blood off)

                      congratulations Bruce on your anniversary, 45 is something to celebrate. A Rod Stewart concert is a great way to celebrate.

                      Not allot to do today. Meet a fellow modeler for coffee and work on a few projects.

                      Everyone stay warm out there

                        Afternoon all! Coffee is good for me. Went out to pick up our granddaughter for the day, then some grocery shopping for our adopt a senior Christmas bag. They tell us we only need to supply a meal, but my wife gets about a month's worth of groceries. We'll continue to do it as long as we're able to.

                        I'm going to be baking Christmas cookies for the next week or so, for family and friends. Have to get a box ready to ship to Arizona for my sister, so the granddaughter and I will be baking this afternoon.

                        Get any time and I'll work on Addams Ave...

                          Pearl Harbor day greetings from frigid Michigan. I just returned from the Veteran's cemetery just W of Battle Creek where I placed at wreath at my father's grave. He was a WW-II vet but remained stateside.

                          Happy Anniversary Bruce and Bonnie! All the best to your family, especially the son in the service. Enjoy the concert.

                          Getting things ready here for the big football game tonight, my SPARTANSid="green"> and the buckeyes.

                          Everyone have a great day.

                          BE SAFE!!
