  • Good Morning All,

    Rick thanks for the coffee. Yup little people are a matter of taste and
    what you want things to look like.

    Jerry a rest from modeling is good sometimes; helps getting the juices
    flowing again. Thanks for the pancakes and bacon; a nice hearty breakfast.

    Karl glad to hear things went well at the Docs. Last time I went and saw the P. A.
    she was asking me all these questions about the shot (vax) so I politely told her
    it was none of her concern; didn't go over real well either.....too bad!!!!! Enjoy the
    FB later.

    To the rest of the Crew hope you have a great day.

    A sunny but brisk 30 this morning with a high of 46 here in New York. Now that the
    backyard looks like a carpet with all the leaves, which 90% are now down, I guess it's time
    to jump on the Deere one last time and grind them up. Then it's time to get the Christmas
    lights put up on the front of the house; of course they won't be lit until 12/1. Rather do it
    now than when the white stuff is flying. Going to sneak in some bench time before all the
    fun begins while it warms up some.

    Enjoy your day. Be safe, stay warm and healthy.

  • Good afternoon everyone,

    Had a busy morning as I got the s$#& tires put on the car, walk Gracie and run a couple of errands.

    Rick, hope you enjoyed your bike ride.

    Started the rework of the tractor treads for the Bate's tractor last night, hopefully will finish tonight.

    Have a great day everyone.

    • Karl last time I had tingling in my fingers!! It turned out to be carpal tunnel syndrome!! I hope yours isn't because your fingers can really start to get ugly at night time.

      • Good morning from the Islands in the Pacific. I just turned on Karl’s team against the Ohio walnuts. I figure with 2 minutes left in the 3rd quarter Karl is off doing something else. I was checking the TV for the Big Ten network for some hockey broadcasts this afternoon.

        It’s another wonderful weather day, I am out by the pool under the umbrellas.

        Not much happening, played 18 yesterday afternoon after we overnighted Thursday next to Pearl Harbor. The harbor tour I enjoyed and the Arizona Memorial was awe inspiring but also sad.

        Wanted to stop in and say hi.

        • Morning and thanks for the grub!

          Wife is in the shower, we'll be heading to church @ 11 am.

          • Morning Crew,

            Jerry thanks for the cup-o-brew and I'll take my eggs sunny-side-up with bacon and hash browns.
            With all this good food, maybe you should open up a Diner; well at least on your layout.

            Tom nice to hear your enjoying paradise and the golf.

            Ron good luck on the treads. I did a 1/32 scale tank model years ago and had to put the treads
            together.....never again.....a real pita.

            Hmmmm.....Rick must be sleeping in this morning.

            Mike, Louis, Philip, Roland, Karl, Rick, and anyone I missed what's happening.

            A nice and sunny 36 this am with a high of 51 later here in New York. Managed to get the leaves ground up
            yesterday as well as the Christmas lights put up on the front of the house.....of course I almost froze since
            the wind was out of the North....thanks Canada. Some bench time yesterday and a little this morning before
            the Boss puts me to work. Both side walls are framed and finishing up the back wall. Now I wait for my
            lumber order from Northeastern to arrive; although there's plenty of other RR projects to keep me busy.

            Have a wonderful day. Stay warm, be safe, and stay healthy.

            • Mid 30s and yet another shade of grey.

              Nothing like falling flat on your face at high noon on National TV. Damn that was ugly.

              Jerry, I’m thinking the carpel tunnel thing is a strong possibility. Time will tell.

              I got all the paint of the diesel project. It needs grab irons, etc., next. When ever next happens.

              TomO an area sailor with a Medal of Honor for his actions at Pearl Harbor was recently ID’d and returned to nearby Charlotte, MI for burial. He was an officer and his actions allowed a good many sailors to escape from one of the ships. We were among a great number of folks that joined along the route of travel to honor him.

              Not sure of plans this morning. The Doll is headed out to an appointment sometime today.

              Be Well, all

              • Good morning Jerry, Philip, Larry, Karl and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening the lounge Jerry for a chat and cup of brew. Best way to start the day.

                Rick went on a new bike ride yesterday, and this morning he is missing. What's up?

                45 degrees today here in Rhode Island with rain expected this noon time.
                Not sure yet what my day will bring, time will tell I guess.
                Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. See you all on the Forum.

                • Good morning everyone.

                  Jerry, thanks for the coffee and breakfast.
                  What are you doing up so early?

                  Partly sunny, with a high near 56.

                  Louis, found my way home yesterday and have already done another new route this morning.

                  Karl, if your hand issue is nerve relayed there's a vitamin supplement that my podiatrist gave that is helping my foot numbness.
                  Numbness in my right foot is almost completely gone and the right foot is getting better too.
                  The supplement contains alpha lipoic acid and B vitamins.

                  Larry, you had a very productive day yesterday.

                  Philip, have fun with your playing around.

                  Tom, glad that you're enjoying your time on the islands.

                  Mike, hope is well with you.

                  Worked late and got up later than usual.
                  Already did my bike ride and breakfast is next.
                  Used another vacation day today.
                  TV on the back porch later watching football, drinking beer, eating pizza and then a cigar.

                  have a great day everyone.

                  • Good morning Jerry, Philip, Larry, Karl, Louis. Rick and the rest of the crew that drops in later.

                    Thanks for the coffee and Breakfast Jerry.

                    Rick, glad you made it back from your bike ride yesterday.

                    3C (36F) and overcast here is Southern Ontario, a typical fall day here in the north. Watch the F1 grand prix this morning, then went on a walk with Gracie. Next up is getting some groceries and then football this afternoon. Hopefully by the end of the evening I'll have the Bate's tractor assembled ready for painting.

                    Have a great day everyone.

                    • Rick it was called the dog!! She wanted to go out!!

                      We just did all the outside Christmas decorations. You may ask so early.
                      Well its 59 here and it's not raining!
                      So one more chore off the list!!

                      • Good morning as it is 9:40am as I start typing.

                        Good to see Rick did not get lost on his bike ride. Those digital maps though have lead me astray a few times.

                        Karl, everyone of those Pearl Harbor heroes should be recovered and taken home. Such amazing bravery they exhibited.

                        NFL, Terry is watching the Packers, 4th quarter in Minnesota but before 10am here, very strange feeling watching sports at this hour, so I am not.

                        larryc, thanks, I am learning to love it here.

                        I may return to Wisconsin a few weeks earlier then originally planned. The brother had mentioned this I before we left Arizona but he has a meeting in Wisconsin on Wednesday. I have been prepping him for this one and he wants me to come along. Direct flight from Maui to Marshfield on one of those time share jets, I am thinking about it.

                        Terry is screaming at the TV, seems the diva just threw a bomb for a TD to tie the Vikings. Too much time left for mini with 2:15. Ok, have to go, Vikings threw interception on the 1st play after the Packer TV. Terry needs to breathe, thanks for the 2 minute warning.


                        Enjoy the day
                        TomO

                        interception now is a incomplete pass, Terry is very quiet

                        • Good morning everyone.

                          Coffee, hot water for tea and an assortment of cold sodas are ready for your enjoyment.

                          A chance of showers, mainly before 9am. Cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 51.

                          Tom, when I lived in San Diego it was weird watching football at 10AM.

                          Jerry, hope the dog lets you sleep today and good idea getting the decorations done now.

                          Ron, I think the F1 drivers are the most skilled in racing.
                          Just wish there wa a way to make it more interesting by making passing easier.

                          Louis, what did the day bring?

                          Philip, Karl, Larry and everyone else, how was your Sunday?

                          Back to work today.
                          No bike ride or chance of getting lost today.
                          Got an errand to run before work and that's all I've got planned for now.
                          Nice win for the Redskins again yesterday.
                          The Jets? Looking forward to next year.

                          Have a great day everyone.

                            After chuch, window shopping for logging supplies. Wheels, trucks & couplers. Making frames for recasting. Disconnects maybe. Still kickin the can..think tank...

                        • Morning everyone

                          Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

                          Fried egg sandwich's on Hard Rolls with Taylor Ham & cheese if you want it.

                          Light rain in South Jersey today clearing later.

                          Been cleaning the model room. Today we will start the indoor decorations this is a 2 day event!!

                          Yes I agree 100% F1 is the most talented but the passing should be easier!

                          That's it from South Jersey.

                          Everyone have a great day!!
                          Jerry
