  • Saturday morning lounge

    Good morning all, from 57f and light rain N.E. Indiana. The coffee urn has signaled READY with 'W' blend. The special is a breakfast burrito w/wo chorizo. The oatmeal pot has a fresh batch going., and somebody dropped off a couple dozen doughnuts this morning. I saw Mark (Potsy) lurking around yesterday, but no update from him.

    Heavy garden activity yesterday, I planted 3 tomato plants. Certainly a 'cut back' from the 48 I put in last year. I've been diligently working on the redraw, of the friends layout, between youtubes and naps. It's raining, and predicted for the rest of the day. Deja Vu.

    Have a Super day!

      Good morning, Jim, Mark and crew. Another nice day in Tidewater, Virginia. We have a scenery clinic at the club this afternoon that I plan to attend. Before that, I need to clear the workbench for another project, whatever that will be. My bench doesn't look very good right now.

      Morning Jim, Mark & George. Sunny cool morning at the River. Nothing much planned for the day. Took up a bunch of early MRC's go go through and look for building projects. Also been heavily researching projects for an East Broad Top diorama of the coaling dock. There was a kit made by White Ground Model Works that produced a kit for that and a few others of East Broad Top buildings. A quick check on E-bay shows that they are still out there.

      I took along a small kit if material and tools to work on my windows of the stalled Suydam Engine house kit I didn't get finished before tax season. Hopefully I'll get that done toward the end of summer.

      Stay safe everybody.

        Good morning to the entire crew. Thanks for the update, Mark.

        George, my bench looks similar - less the Altoid tins.

        I mowed the front lawn yesterday but I have to fill the diesel can before I can finish the mowing. Diesel is now north of $6 a gallon around here.

        I did give the red cab and tender on the Tyco Ten Wheeler I'm working on a coat of black paint yesterday. I hope to get back to that project this evening.

        Have a great day!

          Good morning. Thanks for opening, Jim.

          We have 59F and rain here in northern West Virginia. Rain is supposed to stop later. A brewery about an hour away is hosting an event to benefit the couty animal shelter; we plan to go if the weather improves.

          I managed to get the lawn mowed yesterday. I have an electric mower (with battery) so don't need to buy gas. I like not needing to have a can of the stuff sitting around, and the mower is so much quieter.

          Between mowing, a walk, and an NMRA zoom call in the early evening, no model railroading was accomplished yesterday. Perhaps today. I need to clear off my desk; mine is looking like George's.

          Have a nice day.

            Good morning Jim, Mark, George, Bernd, Bruce, Mike, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge Jim. Coffee, it is the best way as we all know to start off the day.

            George that is what my bench always looks like. I've got a massive size work bench, and with all the junk piled up around me, I'm left with a 12 inch square space to work in.

            69 and sunny here in Rhode Island today. We are going to see 80 degrees by noon I guess from what I'm hearing.

            The new Critter project in the logging and mining section is going along quite well now for those interested.

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

              Sun, 65 —->77 zero enthusiasm. $ 4.40 per, more evil than a senile old has been in that…

              Workbench here is similar, even more so if you zoom out.

              Later all,

                Mornin' All!

                It's 72 here in the northern mitten, having blown through the predicted high of 71, and it will go all the way to wherever it's headed down from here today. Thrill a minute around here. Glorious sunshine in abundance, with WW noises of clouds, leakage and whackety-bang possibilities this afternoon. In other words, they don't know....

                Lots of stuff to get done today, and fixing the grill will probably dominate, although the Grands are due in in a couple of weeks, and they'll demand to run trains, so I should probably make sure that there are trains to run....

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