Good evening from damp So. Wisconsin. I was unaware until a minute or so ago that today is Friday the 13th,
well it mustnít matter as I made it through the day. Somehow we ended up seeing a movie this afternoon. Queen
and Slim, a totally fictional account of a police stop gone wrong. This is one I would recommend you read the synopsis
Of the movie to decide if you want to see it. A very slowwww and sad movie. Excellent unknown to me actors.

The Eagle Rare is on the counter with clean glasses, the White is chilled and the beer is frosty. Itís Friday an evening to relax.
I tossed a few logs on the fire. Feels good. Enjoy your night.

Hey Tom thanks for the fire and setting up the bar.

Its pouring here in South Jersey.

Not sure what I'm going to work on next.
So many things to do so little time.

Well I'll have an Eagle Rare and call it a night.

Good morning everyone.

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

Getting a little late start here today.
Tried getting into the lounge a few times earlier this morning but the server just wasn't cooperating.

Cloudy and rain off and on all day but warm with temps in the upper 50's.

Thanks for the kind words about my co-worker.
There were over 300 railroaders there.

Tom, thanks for the review and for setting up the bar.
Unfortunately I fell asleep early again.
Also hope you're a lot less sore today.

Jerry, so what did you do?

Had planned to do 62 miles (metric century) on the bike this morning, but I just wasn't feeling it.
Only did about 37 and packed it in.
Tomorrow is another day.

Have a great day everyone.

Good afternoon from the gloom of Wisconsin. Just back from a Farmers Market and a Market opening next year preview. All Terryís tomatoes picked yesterday went to 2 of her vendors that then sold to 3 different chefs. One of those chefs was with the farmer who picked yesterday and asked Terry this morning to sell to him direct, she said no.

More dead season tree work as I think my molding compound is old, coverage when dried is patchy and I have done 100ís of these wire armature trees and this is a first. Enjoy your day

Rick, thanks for asking still very sore when the Tylenol wears off.
Tom

Our neighbor down the street its his birthday to but he's 97!!
God Bless him and he's in good shape and of sound mind!!

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Eggs Benedict are on the counter. Help yourself.

The Lone Star Region Division 1 holiday party went well last night. The white elephant exchange was a hoot. We had about 50 in attendance.

The weather promises to be nice today at 73F. Maybe I'll take the MG out for a spin.

Alas, the boys play the Rams today. I hope they have a lot of ambulances ready to carry off the wounded Cowboys. It's going to be a slaughter I fear.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning, coffee please, Thanks Rick.
Back in one piece from an all day hundreds of miles in fog and rain trip. Got in two drag racing events, one cars from here and other countries, and our regional crew, about a hundred cars. Won Pro stock, made the finals for gassers, and altered. 3 amps and ~1 second to do the fifty foot Christmas treeíd track.
Weather was awful. Pizza was good, lot of laughs.
Back to trains today, firmed up plans for trucks and wheels.
Investigate the Climax third truck build, love to drive it, and the mallet. Then a beverage and chow for the Packers game.

Stay warm, have a great day all,


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

Good morning from cold So. Wisconsin. Thanks Rick for getting us going, diet soda is my start for the day. Terry has her Sunday news going so I was in the cave now in the train room. Even my re-coating of molding compound still is leaving this batch of trees lacking. I believe a trip to the LHS is in order. I want this dead season scene experiment done. Enjoy your day

Good morning everyone.

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

They're talking about s!@# again today, but there isn't supposed to be any accumulation.
That's my favorite kind of s!@#.

Jerry, lots of birthdays happening in your area.

Tom, congrats on the cave time.

Paul, congrats on the win.

Mike, your boys actually did very well.

Back to work for me.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

A cold front is sweeping through north Texas. It's 38F now, headed to 42F. Brrr.

I didn't have enough faith in the boys, amazing performance. LOL.

Not sure about the day, was supposed to strip and wax floor at lodge, but I may procrastinate on that activity.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning from again white So. Wisconsin with 1/2Ē of the white stuff on the ground, this puts us over 18Ē for the season and we have had no white accumulation since before T-Giving day, I was getting spoiled. Went to the LHS and forgot to buy the compound for tree bark. I did sell a baker dozen of my ST.com ethanol/oil tanker unit train. Guy wanted 1 number and I had a duplicate and then he talked me into a offer too stupid to refuse. Always great to have my rolling fleet inventory on my IPhone which is also where I store my shopping list. The trees are fine with the second layer added it still looked thin but I use a thick mixture to dab the bark texture on and they are passable. Maybe today they get added to the scene. Enjoy your day.

Morning

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Weather in South Jersey is your choice sn*!, drizzle or rain maybe even sleet..
Do these "WACKO'S" ever guess right?

Blacken a Rock Crusher for a stamp mill.
Most likely will start a thread on all the equipment that I build that goes into a mill.

Everyone have a great day!!
