Good morning from Wisconsin where it is very cloudy. My wife tells me other then the hockey game on the UW campus at 7 the day is mine. Something wrong there! We saw The Who back in the early 80ís on maybe their first retirement tour. Sat too close to the stage, row 4 without ear plugs. Terry has claimed ever since that is where her hearing issues began. She could not hear for 4 days. It was at Apline Valley an outdoor amphitheater in Wisconsin, also the place where Stevie Ray Vaughnís helicopter crashed.

Have a great day
Tom

Good job scoring the day before some Good hockey.

Of all the things I offered my hearing to, sadly, it was never to those guys. One afternoon while at my homework and my brotherís killer stereo, Dad arrived from work, to my doorway. I assumed the music was too loud because his mouth was moving, uninterested in joining together with the band. Over this,.. I heard Mom yell something. My father went downstairs,..Mom liked The Who.

Hey I roasted a chicken and thereís plenty of dirty rice with black beans. Scored me some bench time.
Grab a plateful and something to wash it down.
Cheers!

Good evening all.

First time I saw The Who was in '74 at MSG.
Kieth was still around and saw him again in Philly on the same tour.
Seen them over 40 times,, not counting seeing Pete, John and Roger solo.

Between all the concerts I've been to and playing my stereo way too loud when I was younger my ears are still ringing.
Loudest concerts I've been to was Paul McCartney at MSG, John Entwistle's band in AC and The White Stripes in Camden, NJ.

Paul thanks for the grub.

Eagle Rare on the counter and fridge is stocked with an assortment of brews.

Have a great night everyone.

Rick, 3:57AM is not taking it easy on a day off. Good morning and thanks for getting this day going. Diet Dr Pepper is my friend this morning.

Paul, where are you skiing, State?

At 10:30 Brooks the 6 year old grandson has his 1st official hockey game. A travel game for them on the north side of Madison. We will
celebrate with lunch out and Terry already has set the Packer game to be recorded. The morning is busy as will the train room when we
get home. Enjoy your day.

Tom

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

The cold front didn't really materialize, it's 49F headed to 77F.

OU won so I am happy. Sadly, the feckless Cowboys let me down one more time.

No plans today except making turkey gumbo.

Have fun,
mike

Good Afternoon, everyone. I just stopped by for some coffee and a question.

My wish list for engines has 282s and 280s on it. I am using Bachmann 460s because of their relatively large size. I just cannot see an affordable solution within my novice skills to stock my list.

So I figured I would convert some HO 282s. I noticed from photographs the pre-WW1 engines are pretty small, even the standard gauge, so I thought I would give it a try.

Can anyone point me to a thread on converting an HO engine. I found a thread but it is from 2004 and talks about magazine articles that are even older. Thanks.

Minor hopper fiddling, trucks and wheels to suit, and napping, did build the roofwalks yesterday.

Donít know on converting those to 30ís...would be interesting.

Rick I hope you havenít been up since four.

Tom, Iím back in western mass because family is here,
I Am Not a Pats fan.
My third great grandfather and his Mohawk squaw wife built my farmhouse, a few trips down the yard to the Connecticut River is a mile xc skiing..

My next door neighbor is a retired pretty famous chef from Milwaukee...we watch the Packers over there...

Rest up, have a great week all,


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

Good morning everyone.

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

Rain. High near 56. East wind 5 to 11 mph becoming south in the afternoon.

With my work schedule I'm used to going to bed early and getting up early.
I did go back to sleep for a little bit after I posted.
Did a good ride and feel asleep again before football started.

Paul, hope you're feeling better.

Bob, wish I had an answer for you.

Jerry, is the lathe done?

Mike, turkey gumbo sounds good.

Tom, hope you enjoyed your busy day.

Back to work today but only for 3 days.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Huevos rancheros and chorizo are on the counter. You can choose between red or green salsa for a topping.

It's warm at 66F on the Brazos headed to 76F this afternoon. Maybe rain tonight.

May work at lodge this afternoon. There is a lot to do this time of year.

Workbench, where have you gone to?

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning all. Paul we all get ailments and there is concern, just get better and as my wife asks, ďhave you taken anything.Ē I used to get debilitating headaches in my 20ís, turned out is was sinus issues. Being in pain of any kind is never enjoyable and I have a whole litany of hospital and rehab stays on my record. Again feel better. I never learned to enjoy the cross country skiing but did love snowmobiling in North Central Wisconsin

My mind is a muddle as I am not where I should be, in my cave hiding from my wifeís TV on to the hearings. Instead I must be a masochist listening and I am leaving for the trainroom. Enjoy your day and leave the TV off.

Tom

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Weather in South Jersey cloudy/rainy/55!

No the lathe is not done and might not be until after the "silly season" is over!
To many things we need to get done before Christmas is upon us...

Everyone have a great day!!
