I'm going to my brothers to watch the game tonight.
Before I go, I wanted to set up the lounge with some Super Bowl fixings.



I've made a fresh pot of coffee.
Fridge is stocked with an assortment of cold brews and sodas.
Bottle of red on the counter along with the Eagle Rare and the green bottle.

Couple of logs on the fire too.

Enjoy.

Rick thanks for the spread.

I'll have a sandwich now before the dog eats his way through the stadium!!!

Be back after the game hoping my 49ers win.

Tom O - if you are ever joining your wife in Charlotte let me know and you can visit the layout.

I went to see the movie 1917 today. It was a n interesting film with excellent filmography.

Have a great Superbowl all. - I don't care who wins.

Good evening after Super game is over. I wanted SF but they didnít but no big deal. It is chilly in here so tossed the logs on the fire and took a little Rare Eagle.

Larry, thank you for the invite and I will let you know. Terry and the girls will leave Tuesday morning. I will be doing a seminar at one of the local medical centers
in April so I will let you know then, if they sign the contract.

I saw the movie 1917 Friday and I agree with Larryís statement. The grandson came along to the Women Badgers hockey game and they destroyed #11 Minnesota St.
Cloud, 11-1. That should let them remain #1 in the country. Brooks and I had a ball, he had ice cream pops, M&Mís, 1/2 a hot dog, 1 sip of Sierra Mist and a bottle of water.
Turns out he doesnít like bubbles so I drank the diet Mist and it was terrible. Turns out the game was the 100th straight sell out and loud. Enjoy the evening.

We sat and watched the game as well, pleased that it was competitive through out. Had a slight bias toward KC, not a fan of either but my political biases had a thumb on the KC side of the scales. Ads were interesting at times but nothing stood out except the push is on strongly to cram electric cars down our throats.

Sunlight today was nice as it will tomorrow if the forecast is close to correct. Getting tired but some nights I dread going to bed lest I have a repeat of last night.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Sunny, with a high near 57.

Enjoyed the game last night because I won money.
Taking today off too.
Bike ride and more time spent training the dog.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Still eating on that Super Bowl spread. Good luck with the dog training.

It is a different experience watching the Superbowl when you don't know the players, and the team is not your fav team. Still, I enjoyed the competition. Congrats to the Chiefs.

It's another nice day on the Brazos, sunny and high in 70's. Rain tonight.

I plan to work on the fencing again today. Every bone in my body is sore from the bending over and standing up. My hands hurt too. Getting older is not for sissies.

Have fun,
Mike

Morning all, bit of coffee.
Man, that stadium was quite the spread. After the first couple plays seemed to stun KC, once they figured things out and finally aired out that ball they were on their way.

Not much progress, headache all weekend, worse today, managed to build a chassis for something in the midst of it.

40ís today, mostly sunny, couple of messy mornings coming later this week, nbd.

Have a good day all,


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

Good morning to the Crew. Paul, donít let that headache persist. If still there see the Doc! Ask me how I know...

Rick, winning money on a game always makes it a great game. The SIL told me he had a 5-1 bet on KC in Vegas from his trip there in October to win it all. When I asked how much he started sputtering about how he used some winnings from the casino and bet a couple hundred. I said great you will spread that amount for air plane tickets to collect it. He said, no he can get it via the mail. Boy, things have changed.

Karl, yep competition is good. I am still trying to figure out in my mind what was so super exciting about 1/2 time. GMA says it was one of the best!

Jerry, hi. When you get here.

Enjoy the day.

Mike, agree hard to get into the game when few players are known. Is mom all set?

Sií senior, como se Espaniol es la language primo usted...(4 yrs of the stuff and thatís the best I can do...) Obviously senior citizen model railroadists and their ilk are NOT the primary demographic, nor on the whole ethnic target for any of that. There was little if anything they were selling that Iíd cross the street to find. I found the half time was a great time to basically relieve the stiffness in the back from sitting and taking a load off and refill the water supply.

High temp records were set in MI yesterday with the nice sunny day, itís still sunny and Ďwarmí today. 14 day forecast, SWAG, gives us a warmer prognostication while the SSE part of the country and FLA have a much warmer than normal forecast, so break out the sun block Snow birds.

Everyone have a good day.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Rain, mainly before 3pm. High near 56

Karl, looks like we're getting your warm temps here today.

Good morning Jerry.

Tom halftime wasn't my thing either.
It was interesting though how the men and women switched seats.

Paul, hope the headache is gone.

Mike, hope you're done with the fencing and feeling less sore.

After a couple days off it's back to work.
Glad I didn't work last night.
One of our trains broke down in the tunnel right at the beginning of rush hour.
Then they lost power on the tracks leading into and out of the tunnels.
Many trains were canceled and when things finally got rolling commuters were delayed 3 to 4 hours.
They'll be in a great mood this morning.

Have a great day everyone.

Just some of the cancellations from last night.



A very small portion of the number of people waiting for train.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Wow, 3 to 4 hours. I bet there are quite a few grumpy commuters this morning.

It's 61F now headed to 63F, but we have our first winter storm warning for tonight. Tomorrow looks pretty bad by our standards, sleet then snow.

It is off to work at lodge today.

Have fun,
Mike

Cool and grey are back in Michigan.m. 30s arenít that cold but seem damp and chilling.

No big plans today. The Doll mentioned something about going over to the antique mall today for a bit.

Quite a fiasco in the political deal in Iowa.

Iíll think about painting and installing handrails and put them on the RSs, theyíre all on the layout and reassigned their cab numbers and test run.

Good day at work, Rick. And to others what ever the plan.
