  • Thursday morning lounge

    Good morning all, from 64f -> 81f & clear N.E. Indiana. Nice reprieve from the heat. The coffee urn has signaled READY with Enginehouse blend. The special is biscuits and black peppered gravy. Half order available for the health conscious. Oatmeal pot for the seriously health conscious. All other beverages at the end of the line.

    This 'return to normal activities' is killing me. Outdoor health club is in full swing! Still chopping, clearing, and burning a lot of branches from nearly two weeks ago.

    I was looking at CNE1999's Z-scale 4-6-2 project and it reminds me why I left N-Scale in the rear view mirror in 1975. He's doing some really nice work with his Z-Scale projects. Check it out.

    I read about 1 1/2 pages of a JMRI tutorial last evening and was unconscious within minutes.

    Have a Super day!

    Watch out for Donkeypox.

    Good morning, Jim. Thank you for opening.

    It’s upper sixties with forecast of 81F and sun in WV.

    My schedule is pretty open today. I’ll do my music practice, work on a model, and maybe mow the lawn.

    This evening is the weekly meeting at the club.

    Have a good one.

      Good morning Jim, Mike and the rest of the crew. It is 62 degrees and heading into the upper 70's under sunny skies here in S.E. Michigan.

      A little lawn mowing, a few errands, and some modeling will fill up the day.

      Have a great day!

        Good morning Jim, Mike, Bruce, 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.

        67 degrees, with sunny skies here in Rhode Island at the moment. They say summer is here now, I'm still waiting for it.

        Not sure again what today will bring yet. I'll have to play it by ear and try to get motivated. I know I've got the lawn to mow.

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

          Wet, wet, and more wet -rained much of last night and out back is small lake again......but at least I don't have to water the garden!

          But that curtails my painting outside today, too.

          So, some interior projects to tackle today, and office out to the library this afternoon, too. Have to restock the reading stack!

          So it goes...

            Severe clear 65 going to 71 in the cedar swamp besides the big pond. The breeze is picking up already. I’m sure the day will progress nicely. Some light chores to do and who knows what else?

            Its been nice and quiet this trip up now that the rich boys from Chi-town’s monolith has been finished. Nice not to hear the diesels and saws and hammers. Ugly house is a sore thumb on the ambiance of a woodsy northern retreat. Clear cut scar in the woods right to the lake. Sort of thing the native folks resent about intruding trolls with no sense of the area. Not that they will hesitate to take their money ​​​​​​ No sign of the owners so far.

            Things to do, ticks to pick. Bob called already, got his limit of ‘gills already this morning.

            Everyone be well. Might ride along to town with the Doll. See if Jensen has been out and caught some trout to smoke.

            Later all…

              Good morning, Jim and crew. We had some of the same stuff Martin received last night down here in this corner of Virginia. We're in the 70's today with more rain in the forecast.

              I've been out running errands and I'm going to work on shaping some grab irons when I'm done here. Maybe a walk later if it's not raining.

              Have a good day.

              With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine.

                It's still raining here, George! You might be in for more today.
