  • Good Afternoon,

    Rick thanks for the cold soda. Loved the you tube clip......boy does that bring back memories.
    Ah.....those were the days.

    Mike looks like you have some work ahead of you.....baby steps. Sorry to hear about your fall;
    take it easy you not as young as I used to be.

    Louis have fun with what ever you end up doing.

    Karl sounds like you've been busy....painting's the easy part. I was going to watch the Game but
    needed by sleep more.

    Jerry hope you get your car back soon and how's Cripple Creek coming along.

    Philip hope your weather breaks soon so you feel better. Best wishes to your sister-in-law and
    I hope all goes well with a speedy recovery.

    The rest of the Crew hope your doing well.

    A sunny 41 with a high of 60 here in New York. Busy morning with a trip to Home Depot early for metal
    to have the soffits done next week then to the grocery store to pick things up for Easter Dinner. Speaking of
    Easter the decorations are all up. Maybe some bench time later.

    Have a great day. Heal up, enjoy, and be well.

      Larry, did they have what you needed at HD?

      Philip, best wishes and a speedy and complete recovery for you SIL.

      Jerry, what's your plan today?

      Karl, is there paint in the closet?

      Ron, how's the convention prep coming along?

      Louis, bench time?

      Mike, glad you weren't hurt badly from that fall and hope you're not too sore today.

      • Morning everyone

        Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

        Looks like a rainy day in SOuth Jersey with temps in the mid 50's.

        Where off to the Vet doggy needs her heartworm test and pills.
        Then some time playing with my pier.
        I'm waiting for wood for the pilings but the deck is under way.

        Ron you ready for the meeting?

        Mike hope your feeling okay this am??

        Roland, Larry, Philip & Louis hope your day goes as planned.

        Everyone have a wonderful day!!
        Jerry

        • Good morning Rick, Jerry, and all incoming crew. Thanks for the usual chat and cup of brew this morning Rick.

          We are at 47 degrees and rain this morning here in Rhode Island, and temps should rise some throughout the afternoon with rain to continue.

          Again, not sure what I'll do today, so maybe some bench time will happen, than again like yesterday it never happened.

          Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. I'll see you all on the RR-L Forum.

          • Rain but “warm” in MI this morning and most of the day. 47o to start off. Yesterday turned out to be much nicer than anticipated. Cold again the next bit of the ‘coaster ride.

            Yes Rick, there IS paint in the closet. This is actually the pantry off the kitchen. Of course I didn’t do it right…

            No big plans today. We’ve talked with our Indian guide in da Yoop and he recommended waiting a couple more weeks before heading up. He said it’s going to be pretty messy up there.

            Everyone have a good day.

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

              Rick, Thanks for the coffee.

              Mike, hope you are feeling better with less aches and pains.

              Philip, hope the SIL's operation goes well and she has a quick recovery.

              Rick, Jerry, the convention planning is going well. Still a couple of months till the convention but things are already falling into place. This is a very short planning time as we only had 3-1/2 months to get this organized, the other conventions I have been in charge of, I had over a year to plan. This is also my first virtual convention I have planned. Needless to say, it's a different learning curve. Spent last evening trying to close off loose ends.

              Have a great day everyone.

              • Morning Gents,

                Rick thanks for the java this morning. Yes HD had what I needed but barely. I got there at
                8am yesterday and they had only a few left so I grabbed what I needed.

                Jerry have fun building the deck; don't you just hate it when you have to wait for lumber?

                Louis have a great day no matter what you decide to do.

                Karl sounds like waiting to go to da' yoop is a wise decision; messy roads and land is no fun.

                Ron good luck with the convention planning. Is it going to be "in person" this year?

                The rest of the Crew hope your doing well and are on the mend.

                A cloudy 47 with a high of 60 here in New York with some rain here and there. Well doesn't look
                like we'll be eating eggs too much anymore.....the prices have "sky rocketed" to $3.09 for a dozen
                large....."egg flu" so they say....ya right. Not sure what's on the agenda for today so we'll see.

                Have an enjoyable day. Be well!!!

                  REF: Marios site,
                  Didn't want to hi jack your thread any more on Caz. Here is something of interest about people having websites shut down and all info dumped.
                  This forum is about the only forum to ever survive, longevity wise, maintaining data. All the others seem to have lost server status.
                  One in particular ( twoguysandsumtrains.com) was dumped because the owner didn't renew server status because he was in a coma. No BS!
                  Fred is still active, alive, and recovered.
                  I and others had tons of photos there & their were many articles of interest. One in particular was Jon Monon account of sugar cane R/R in the Phillipines. 

                  You are correct Larry about copyrighted material.

                • Good morning,

                  Rick, thanks for coffee.

                  Thanks for the health queries, I am still here. Spent the morning in bed and skipped today's shopping trip. Sore muscles and joints abound today. It is still raining, so that probably contributed to the soreness. Skinned knees are healing nicely, though. I'll survive, .

                  Have fun,
                  mike

                  • Good afternoon. Just awake from a quick afternoon nap. Heading out in about an hour for NYC a place I have just never warmed up to.

                    90’s yesterday in Austin, 40’s in Wisconsin, 50’s in NYC. Hopefully back on the plane by noon Thursday heading home to Wisconsin for me.

                    Terry is with my sister and brother waiting to hear from a doctor. My brother’s girlfriend is in surgery right now in Arizona. Almost a last minute thing as we found out Sunday. One of the 3 of us has always been there for the others major medical events. She is not truly family but that is the brother being stupid. I could not delay this stupid disposition as the other side has been delaying for about a year. If I get on the plane later I want every ounce of blood the attorneys can get. Our attorneys want a settlement and finally the other side realize what it may cost them if they don’t settle today.

                    The eastern portion of the road trip has been cancelled. Some of the friends in Florida have Covid. One of the friends in Gulf Shores decided last week he is splitting up with his wife of 48 years. We didn’t want to deal with that!

                    We visited by plane OKC, Ok. and Independence, Mo. on Sunday, Monday and yesterday as Terry was looking at some horses. So, I Uber’ed to Midwest Model Trains in Independence outside of KC. What a great shop, neat, well organized, huge, clean, price friendly and a great staff. I have now visited my 3 top online shops in person. Lombard Hobby, Hiawatha Hobbies and now Midwest Model Railroad.

                    OKC was a nice visit. We stayed in Bricktown and went to the Cattlemens Steakhouse Cafe for dinner in the Stock Yards. Seemed very run down from our last visit before Covid. The steak though made up fit the atmosphere. The Murrah Center Memorial in OKC is fine. It just has no sense of awe to me. I think it’s me not the site. Independence, Mo. is also where the Truman Presidential library is and that was a good planned portion of the trip. But, closed till 9am today. I misread the website. I flew from KC to Madison and Terry flew to Phoenix. Yes, she purchased some horses and I restrained myself at the hobby shop.

                    • Wed eve. With all the grumbling and griping about cruddy weather I thought that I'd give credit to the fine totally clear sky that appeared from W to East today mid afternoon. OF course that was just another sucker hole as here at 7:30p it has clouded up and the forecast for tomorrow is"Thunderstorms and FROZEN precipitation" which should be interesting.

                      Today was de ja vu, yes Rick there is paint in the closet.....better job this time.... so I was told.

                      TomO, so, let me get this straight, 3 Walthers Hoppers and a box of "rolled steel" equals how many horses?

                      • Good morning everyone.

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

                        Showers likely, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 11am. Patchy fog before 10am. High near 56.

                        Jerry, hope your car part showed up.

                        Louis, bench?

                        Karl, congrats on the successful repaint.

                        Tom, that's a lot of traveling.
                        Congrats on the new RR inventory.

                        Mike, hope you're a lot less sore today.

                        Philip and Larry, not all of Mario's pictures on his site were taken by him, so those he wouldn't have a copyright.
                        Getting permission from whomever is the executor of the estate would be able to grant copyright rights.
                        But I don't know if Joe is willing to migrate Mario's website here.

                        Ron, I'm sure you'll do a great job with the virtual convention.

                        Lot's of big progress happening here today.
                        Sheetrockers will be here this morning to finish a small wall in the basement.
                        Carpet in two bedrooms will be installed as well.
                        'If it stops raining I can get some painting done outside.
                        I'm on vacation next week and hope to have the house listed then.

                        Have a great day everyone.

                        • Good morning,

                          Rick, thanks for coffee. Sounds like prep for listing is moving right along.

                          It's been raining here and remains cloudy this morning. Hoping it will clear this afternoon. High forecast at 68F and sunny.

                          Today's activities include aircraft museum and fire station tours. Grandson will get a kick out of both. Tonight it's steak, baked potatoes, asparagus, and salad.

                          Got to dash to make breakfast...

                          Have fun,
                          mike

                            Karl, it’s not the number, why it is the satisfaction of having a happy spouse! We (she) were looking for 2, she purchased 6, 3 mares and their babies.

                            You missed that I also purchased 1 pan pastel.

                            TomO

                            I’ll be off to the post office with a package to send after a bit. Moved another locomotive from the fleet.

                            I took this shot of the John’s’s G Munson arriving in Duluth from the Duluth Harbor Web cam site:
