    Hi guys,

    Looks like the Chief is going to have a first class layout.

    Alan, You have twitchy fingers?

    Jeffrey, Had one of my favorite breakfasts this morning. I take shredded potatoes & brown in pan, add chopped green peppers and onions, shredded cheese and eggs, or in my case egg beaters. Delicious with a little hot sauce.

    announce1 Welcome! Smoke

    Good night all,

    Good morning,

    Where is everyone this morning?

    Weather here this morning is clear and cold. 23 on the back porch, 36 in the pond and 64 in the greenhouse. Finished ordering my seeds on line yesterday. Will start some things about the first of February.

    Picked up a Railking FA2 A-B-A at the LHS yesterday, haven't run it a home yet. It ran fine at the shop. Need to decide what to take off to put it on the layout.

    This is work out morning at the fitness center, going to take it easy today. Been having sholder and back pain. Thought it might be the old ticker, but Doc says no. Did xray's of back and sholder's. Now says it is Arthritis and to take Tylenol. That is what I was doing before I got his professional opinion. :D

    May get some catenary installed this afternoon, but this is the evening that I do dinner for the bride so not a lot of time left.

    Enjoy your trains and keep warm.

    Back home from doing Overton's Marine training. Now more work on layout. Sunny and warming real fast. Yanks are sending us some cold air again Sunday and overriding moisture fro Texas. We'll survive. Have a good one.

    Good morning,

    Slept in a little later this morning. Got greenhouse ready for starting some seeds soon. Maybe I'll find some time for the layout today.

    Weather here is about the same, cold & clear. Forgot to check the temps this morning.

    Set up my two Atlas Jersey Central GP-9s in a lashup and have been running them quite a bit. Really nice running locos. Can pull a ton, have 12 cars + caboose on right now, they will pull a lot more than that

    Take care,

    Evening,

    Been gone a WAY long time. Got back and then the PC blew its Power Supply and took the Hard Drive with it.
    Finally, getting back to normal.
    Sitting here with a fever, cough, and a sneeze that'll send a sailboat across a lake.
    I won't make ya'll jealous with the weather report here. I'll just say Miami is 40mi south and across the state.
    Good to see the Morning "How ya doing..." is back. Missed it.
