  • Friday Morning Holiday Breakfast

    Yes, it's Friday morning and my first day of the Christmas holidays. School shut down yesterday so I slept in a bit. Got up at 7:00 instead of 5:30!

    Anyway, the bagels are hot out of the toaster. There's plenty of cream cheese selections and jams as well. Coffee and tea are on the stove. There are some holiday chocolates for dessert...yup, dessert for breakfast. So, indulge and enjoy.

    I'm changing course on my latest modelling project since I wish to incorporate it into the latest group challenge Bruce has offered up beginning later in January. So, it's off to the workbench shelves to open a different box and begin modelling something else.

    I was excited yesterday as my package arrived in the mail from fellow forum member, Don Tanner. I had always wanted to get my hands on Bar Mills' Raglan Road ever since I built one of the structures in the kuit, the pharmacy, for a friend. Don had this big wooden box available as well as Grutty McDuff's from Bar Mills...and I got em both. Hmmm...perhaps I could start the pharmacy build again!

    I encourage all our forum members to "jump in" with the latest challenge. They are a ton of fun, and, as Bruce mentioned, you meet new friends and get to enjoy some humour and camaraderie along the way!

    Looks like a lot of snowy weather is heading our way over the next couple of days. It's snowing outside as I type this message. Better get out and see if I can find some black asphalt beside the house! Have a great day everyone. [:-apple][;-xmas][:-apple]

    Good morning Mike and the rest of the crew. I'll have another cup of coffee before getting started on some items on today's "to do" list.

    We are in a warming trend for the next three days. That should get rid of much of the accumulated snow.

    Today we will finish wrapping the last of the Christmas presents and head to the grocery store to pick up some fixin's for Christmas dinner. We need to bring that with us to our son's house in Virginia.

    Mike, thanks for plugging the Challenge. We are up to 20 participants, and I hope that number doubles. Now to decide on my project...

    Have a great day!

        Good morning everyone. last day at work before our 2 week Christmas shutdown and it couldn't come soon enough.

        Supposed to snow here today, just a couple inches but it would be nice to have the white stuff at Christmas.

        last night I came home with a headache so I puttered a bit in the workshop.

        I just signed up for the challenge as well. I'm thinking of a scratchbuild that I made plans for a couple years ago but never got around to building.

        Everyone have a great day and Merry Christmas to those that will be away!

          Good Morning Mike and the rest of the RR-L Crew even mumbles Dave when he crawls in. [}]

          Rained here last night and 54 outside so all the snow is gone and I didn't have to shovel one scoop of it either.

          Lots to do today so I'll be seeing you at the feed trough later on.

          Everyone have a Fun and Safe day in the Train Yard.

            Good morning crew and thanks for opening, Mike. We have some mild weather here in Tidewater Virginia today. I'm committed to the challenge, now I need to figure out what I'm going to do.

            Have a good day.

              Good morning Mike and all crew members out there, it's warm and rainy in the Cleveland area so I can fix the outside lites I ran over with the snow blower. Lucy and I are going shopping later just to see the store lites and get in the spirit. From here I'm going over and join the challenge and dig though boxes to find the right kit to bash. Tom

                Chocolate for breakfast, a great idea. Don't tell Judy. 8 degrees and sunny here in Nevada.

                We will work at the church office this morning. Our square dance club is having a Christmas

                party tonight. Tomorrow it's off to Las Vegas and our son's home. No real agenda. We should

                be gone 2-3 weeks.

                  Morning Mike and crew! A toasty bagel, cream cheese and some coffee sounds good to me. Going to get messy around here as the snow melts...knew I should have paved the drive years ago...

                    Morning folks. Glad to see Walt is his old chipper self.

                    Coffee break time for me so I'll have a bagel.

                    Looks like the MRR Kit forum is in trouble with the new owners not taking an active part in the operation, letting it get stale and no new members. Talks of getting a new forum started.

                    Glad we have this place to come to.

                    Sun is out here and hoping for a good melt day of the snow and ice in the driveway.

                      Good morning crew, thanks Mike for opening and breakfast. It is just above the freezing mark here and suppost to get freezing rain tomorrow. I think I am over the hump with this cold. So far it hasn't been a bad one. The cold has put anything MRing on hold but hopefully today. Have a great day.

                        32 and rain in my part of the mitten state. Slip sliding away...very icy. We have mixed forecast for the weekend, and right at the freezing temp border it depends on the trend of the temp to see what happens. We still have our snow, too, but less than it was. Al, paving the drive was the best thing I've ever done here.

                        Received e-mail from Fast Tracks that my order has been shipped. I look forward to making more turnouts for my layout project, going to try and tackle a curved turnout as entry to the yard. My Micro-Mark order arrived yesterday, too. Their standard shipping is slow.

                        Never felt the urge to change forums, this is my first with a check at the old Atlas reborn as Atlas Rescue and a small bunch at The bunch here are a talented crew with great posts. Thanks to all here for keeping it fresh.

                        I think I'll keep my head in today, everyone have a good one.

                        BE SAFE!!
