Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Good luck with the bike repair.

It's 42F and forecast for 54F this afternoon. No rain.

Yesterday, I did not make it to the work bench, instead I just hung out and read. Today, I hope to get to the bench.

Have fun,
Mike

Tom, enjoy the movie, and a taste when you get to have a sip!

20ís this morning and a high of 30, maple in the front yard hasnít dropped all its gold, everything else is bare, lol.

Yeah, Rick, the greenie is aging in the pantry. It was old when I found it. It has suffered an occasional dent that comes when folks go. And when theyíre here. I used to keep tabs aside from here with Bill, weíd last talked of making the Hudson trip, I didnít, and right after, found the train had stopped by with a seat for him. You guys know how that felt.
With three packyís within only a few miles it took an hour and a half of tailing slowpokes and tractors to land that 3sider. Then lit the grill, and one of those little mason jars.
It has been and is still full of little big tributes, itís here for friends, here, there, and all around. I donít see it often but I know itís there..,maybe get just a little more dust off it later,
Enjoy the afternoon!

That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

Good morning, crew. I will have a coffee and will leave behind some sticky buns for the rest of you. :-)
Definitely will have room for the RR. I built it to be modular - let's see how well it travels. It's only two 6' modules and so shouldn't be too onerous to move.
As far as work goes, there isn't a rush for me to get one. I may take December to get the house set up and then go looking.
Tom, I'm a bit like you when it comes to tasting. I have a hard time discerning between different vintages - red or white is usually good enough for me.
Have a good day.
Cheers,
Dave

Good evening gents.

Tom, I've never tasted the 17 yo just the 10.
Generally the extra aging will add more flavor of whatever it's stored in and make it smoother.
When I have a bourbon I only pour about an ounce and sip on it for a half hour at least.
I usually only get one or two flavors.
Nothing like some of the reviewers I see on youtube where they rattle off a dozen or more flavors.
Normally with the Eagle Rare I get a fruity aroma on the nose and even some when I taste it.

With all that being said the bottle is on the counter.
Assorted brews in the fridge too.

Got the stereo warming up and will sit and listen in a little bit.

Paul, maybe you'll break out the greenie again.

Dave, I like your attitude about work.

Maybe Jerry will pop in and raise a Hoot and a Holler. [:-eyebrows]

Have a great evening everyone.

Hoot and Holler, Jerryís new band! I will sit and enjoy the aged a couple day old diet Dr Pepper this chilly evening.
The movie Malieceint was ok entertainment, not as good as the 1st but movies rarely area. Logs toss3d again in the
fireplace, I like the big sparks. I will have to take notes when we open the bottle, next week.

Enjoy your evening
Tom

Did considerable damage to a pepperoni and fresh garlic pizza, looking over a couple trackplans, and an old Annual.
The Eagle sounds good, same here Rick- just a finger of the green bottle to sip, dark beers in the fridge,
tracking shows the Climax gears and bits here tomorrow, will be building up the boxcar carbodies, drilling the five printed two-bays for grabs.
Alas, after the last truckload of the leaves.....
and the rest of the pie

Cheers!!

That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

I'm here.

All the company is fast asleep!!

So I'll sit back by the fire and throw on a log. It's just 20 in South Jersey right now.

I'll have a nice Eagle Rare. Ah the first sip so smooth!

Maybe one more before bed time. You all have a good time tonight.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Cherry Diet Pepsi are ready to go.

Had our first frost last night with temps in the 20's.
We'll have some sun and temps in the mid 40's.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Cherry Diet Pepsi are ready to go.

Partly cloudy and a little warmer with highs in the lower 50's.

Did my first race on Zwift yesterday and finished 21'st out of 44.
Doing a race definitely motivates you to go faster and I look forward to doing more of them.
No racing this morning.
Either a solo ride or a group ride if one is available.

Afternoon will be watching football with a friend.

I see a few of you doing the leaf thing.
Still too many leaves on the trees here,
I'll wait a bit till more are on the ground.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Your bike rides sound like fun.

Yesterday, My Uncle Larry Anderson and I chased UP 4014. My uncle is 90, but that didn't slow him down a bit. He had a blast. That is one massive locomotive and a far cry from the diminutive locos we model in On30.





Another beautiful day in the neighborhood. 76F is the forecast high.

Ball game is tonight, so have the day to have some fun.

Happy rails,
Mike

Good Afternoon everyone,

Put some frosties in the fridge and some wine on the counter.

Really cool here today but at least it is not snowing today.

Been working on kitbashing a plate girder bridge as part of the this years local NMRA division workshops. Had to scratchbuild a new deck and modify the Atlas HO flatcar girder load for the sides, next up adding some reinforcements. Maybe I should start a thread about it.

Have a great day everyone
