Good morning everyone.

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

A mix of sun and clouds and a high in the low 50's.
Lots of wind too, with gusts over 20 mph.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our US members.
Found a picture of some turkeys trying to get out of town before the farmer comes looking for them.



Russ, thanks for the link.

Tom, don't get blown away.

Jerry, my go home train was packed like the proverbial sardines.
We left dozens of people on the platform.
They were standing there staring into the packed vestibules and had to tell them to go upstairs and catch the next train.
Even had one guy with one foot on the train and the other on the platform.
Not sure what the purpose of that was.
On my job you get a great view of how most people can't use logic or common sense.

Bike ride after breakfast and then my brothers house for football and dinner.

Have a great day everyone.

Happy Thanksgiving folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

It's just Sharon and me for Thanksgiving today, but we will cook the traditional meal. Can't wait.

Cold and rainy here. A good day to watch football.

Have fun,
Mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Diane and I are home alone and like Mike we are having the traditional turkey dinner.

Maybe some bench time later. The Lathe is almost done!

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

Good morning everyone.

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

Mostly sunny and mid 40's here today in Joisey.

Had a very enjoyable day at my brothers filled with family, good beers, football and a tasty meal.
Got to take some left overs home so I won't have to do grocery shopping or meal prep.
And I get to avoid all the chaos of Black Friday.

Bike ride for sure after breakfast and a cigar in the PM.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Thanksgiving was a success, best meal ever. About that football game, though...[:-shake]

No plans for the day. The high is forecast for 61F, rain all day.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

It's 70F on the Brazos, raining now, clear this afternoon. Going to be a nice day.

Headed to the Texas Western this afternoon to finish moving stuff back into the library. We are just about recovered from the flood.

Have fun,
Mike

Almost noon, one more coffee thank you,

Got some good time at the boxcar bench yesterday, no drag racing, half the core crew is pretty ill.
Going to force myself to sit and finish the doors for the other two cars. See what other trouble I can find.

Each forecast is getting deeper, like the Grinch said, itís practically here.
Four months til baseball starts.

Have fun,

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

Afternoon

I just put a log on the fire and made a fresh pot of coffee.

Busy morning doing the Christmas decorations. Just the tree is left to do.
And of course outside!!

Is there bench time today I doubt it...

Weather here in South Jersey sunny/38.

Everyone have a great day!!

As we get older it seems that the outside set-up/break-down routines has less time between cycles... What joy!!
