  • Happy Irish-American Hangover Day :-)

    I guess everyone is sleeping it off after the big night last night. There's coffee and tea, and if your stomach can take it, scones and bagels. Plus tomato and orange juice.

    Sunny with a high predicted near 70 today in SE NH. Looks like that last bit of snow at the end of the neighbor's driveway will be gone by the end of the day.

    Wife is off seeing a back doctor who thinks he can help. That would be A Very Good Thing, she's been miserable for the last year or so.

    Modeling 1890s (because the voices in my head told me to)

    Good morning Dave and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up, the lounge this morning Dave, it's the best way to start off the day with a chat and cup of brew.

    Wishing the best for your wife Dave!

    52 digress already this morning in Rhode Island. A welcomed sight and feeling. Looking forward to spring!

    Nothing planned for today railroad wise, so we'll play it by ear and see what the day brings.

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

      Good morning Dave, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!

      It is in the mid-40's and heading into the mid-50's later today with some rain moving in this afternoon. We had those higher temperatures yesterday and I spent about 2 hours clearing leaves out of all the gardens that surround the house. My body is letting me know that I was a slug all winter and it doesn't appreciated a 2-hour wake-up call that yard work is back on the agenda.

      I got a little time at the modeling bench yesterday and think that I've stained almost all the wood needed for the rest of the Coal Tipple build. More time at the bench is planned for today.

        Good morning Crew and while I didn’t drink yesterday tomato juice sounds great, thanks Dave.

        I spent quite a bit of time in the train room yesterday. 6’ of the hopeful planned 12’ track renovation occurred, frustration and then lost motivation stopped me in my tracks! Even though the paint booth is disassembled because I paint with Arcylics I did spray the grain complex receiver building. I did wear the respirator though. I also packed up 3 cars and some paints for weathering for the time in Texas upcoming. The son has created for me a workspace above his new garage.

        I have a 10:30 appointment this morning with my sleep specialist which Terry had mentioned as my calendar alarm was going off. Glad I had the reminders as I had forgotten.

        Be healthy

          Sun and what Bruce said, right down to the bodily complaints… I got the Deere changed over from Winter to Spring mode and found the battery in the mowing machine, brand new replacement late last year, deader than that long gone mouse behind the work bench. Frustrating inconvenience. Well, no where near time for any mowing yet. Heck, might have snow again before the weekend’s over.

          Hope all goes well for Burley J today, mentioned having a heart cath in his post yesterday.

          The Doll is off on errands already and I just had some toast to ease into the day after slows from yesterday and Wednesday’s work.

          Be well all.

            Karl, was the battery disconnected? We had a car (Volvo) that had a current leak no one could ever locate, after a week (like when we were on vacation) the battery would be dead. But a new battery that just sat on the shelf (so-to-speak) for a year might well be under warranty :-(

            Plan is to return the battery, but cold and windy here today and won’t be needed right away so it goes when I have other reasons to go to town. Was a shock,to the system to poke out this morning after sitting on the back deck until twi-light yesterday eve. The mower was serviced last year so I’d guessed it was up to snuff, but one never assumes. Also the big Deere had a mower if need be.

            Answer to initial Q? dave, no…

          Mornin' All!

          35 and wet in the northern mitten, with off-and-on rain and perhaps WGFA mixed in on the way to 43 today. Very bleak out there.... Good day to stay indoors and work on various Lists....

          Best to all who over-celebrated yesterday, and to Jim with his cath today. He'll be dragging for awhile, but the net result should make him feel much better.

          Make it a great day, All, be positive, test negative and stay safe!

            Good morning, all. It's 55F and sunny in northern WV. High of 70F expected.

            I did a little layout work yesterday, cleaning small spots. Today? who knows.

            Out on the rail trail soon.

            Not much on the schedule.

              Going to be a nice day today; windows open and air moving.....and my birds (the Goodfeathers!) are back in the house hanging off the deck! But so is that pileated woodpecker.....

              Picked up the better 1/2 last night at the airport; flight was delayed 4 hours......even late night the airport is a bloated urinal cake what with construction, lanes close, and zero enforcement of parking at the arrivals lanes.......but we prevailed and she's home and all is better now.

              A bit of office and shop time today; no NMRA rubbish.....I'm off that for a while.....bugger all the bunch of numpties that they are at Nat'l.

              Highlight of the day will be watching Delaware on the court facing Villanova......unlikely as it might be, but wild things have been happening, so who knows!

              In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

                Good afternoon, all. Seacoast NH got up to 70-ish. After paperwork this morning, I dug a hole for a new Reliance Peach tree. Back to that after a quick look at the Forum. Then model trees tonight.
