  • Thankgiving morning lounge

    It's 0130 and raining in N.E.Indiana. The timer is set on the coffee urn, and Friendship blend is in basket. We'll have a light breakfast of biscuits and gravy to save room for the main event. Don't believe the talking heads about all the nutty ways to celebrate truly an American tradition. We've all got a lot to be thankful for, personal freedom is still #1. Let's enjoy the day, maybe the real world can be as great as our hobby world.

    I'm sleeping in, the bird is thawing and will be ready just about the right time at your place.


    P.S. The Indians enjoyed the meal too!

    At 6:30 am I woke up and remembered I never turned the humidifier on for the winter season. No wonder the house is dryer than an overcooked turkey.

    The specialty of the house is a German egg noodle called spaetzles. Gotta slather them in gravy and they slide all the way do own to your waistline for six months.

    Have a great day with your family.

            Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving Jim, David, Mark, Rick, Dave, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening for our chat and cup of brew.
            41 degrees and sunny here in Rhode Island. I'll be heading out for a family Thanksgiving day. No chance of modeling today.
            Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. See you all on the Forum tomorrow.

                I know that the bird is the word, but the Queen prefers a ham...... Coffee and a bagels this morning....

                Maybe some shop time if/when football becomes more boring that can be accepted.......but office work is.....oops.....back on since a 1st "draft" of the other set of galleys just showed up.

                Everybody have a great day!

                  Mornin' All!

                  38, headed all the way to 40 and drizzly, headed for rain and then snow here in the northern mitten today. Grey blanket is tucked in tight, and it looks like it'a about an hour before dawn, but the clock says otherwise. Good day to sleep in, stay in, count our many blessings and run some trains. I certainly appreciate the blessings, too numerous to list here, that I have in my life, and I'm grateful among them for these Forums, for Joe's efforts in keeping them going, and for the learning experience that abounds here. May we all continue to be blessed!

                  I have to get with the roundhouse foreman and get one locomotive reassembled and another's horn toned down, then "motivate" the section foreman to make progress on some yard work up at the paper mill.

                  Make it a great day, All, and stay safe!

                    Good morning to the entire crew. I was up while still dark out to get the turkey in the oven. The house is smelling great

                    Our 5 grandkids and family from Washington State arrived around 9 pm last night. The Michigan son and family will arrive shortly.

                    Later this afternoon, after the feast is done, I'll enlist my sons' help to get the Kubota set up for snow removal. It looks like today's drizzle will end up as some snow, then more snow coming Saturday thru Monday.

                    Have a great Holiday, all.

                        Good afternoon folks

                        HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

                        This Thanksgiving my family and I have something to be truly thankful for, my wife came home from the hospital after a week long stay. She is doing better but has a ways to go. She still has a cough at times and is tired. She is glad to be home. We will know more of the plan for recovey on Monday when she sees the doctor. She felt well enough to help with making the stuffing last evening.

                        I finished weathering the track in the area of passenger station over the last few days. Next is I have to add some foundation for the passenger platforms to bring them up to track level. Then begins the ballasting.

                        The turkey is stuffed and in the oven thus begins the long wait.

                        I hope everybody has a good day.

                          Good afternoon, all. Glad your wife is home, Tom PM. I'll only see my younger son at a distance today; outbreak at the rehab facility where his wife works. They're both vaccinated and had mild covid (same source) a month ago, so less risk for them.

                          Hope your staff is on the ball today, Pete. The NH seacoast got up to around 50 and is holding that now as the forecast clouds are thin. My wife made macaroons this morning, then turned our deliberately small kitchen (my grandmother didn't want room for kibitzing relatives) over to me for Boston Steamed Brown Bread and Cranberry Sauce. Cooking will be done in 15minutes, then a few hours getting the layout ready for Tour de Chooch. We're going to my 2nd wife's house for lobster and turkey (small breed, didn't arrive early enough) around sunset.

                            Good Morning from the left coast. Turkey and pies are in the ovens and all is well. Grateful to be healthy, and have the ability to deal with little small parts. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

                              Good morning from Portland. It’s 46F and sunny, for now.

                              We will be having a vegan feast today.

                              Yesterday we spent most of our time at the Portland art museum. We didn’t do it all.

                              Have a great thanksgiving everyone.
