    Where the temp is 11 deg with Blue Clear Sky’s and heading to 18 deg. Here at work the temp is “0”. So much for Global Warming.



    Big snow fall coming tonight, 4” to 8” more. Can’t wait for Winter to start.



    Gil - I thought you could be more creative than that. :oops:

    Good morning. I'm having trouble with this forum responding. I visit lots and this one is the only one. It gets into stop mode right in the middle of responding to the opening page or this page and so on. One reason I have quit posting hardly anything here. It can be so slow. ?????? Sunny and warmer here. Have a good one and God bless.

    where the temp is 25 deg and headed to 30 with snow falling. So far 2" down and 3 to 6 more to go. I think we are going to have a white Christmas. How about you Chief :confused:


    Gil - I love that. See you can add Christmas spirit to anything.

    Chief - Good to see you stop by. We haven't noticed a speed problem up here in the north. Maybe it a suthern thing, just like slow talking :D :rolleyes: :p

    If some of us don't post a reguaers, then it will be slow. I remember when CTT was slower than this place. One of the good things of this forum is you don't have a bunch of one time posters asking how much a set is worth that they find on e-bay or want to sell on e-bay.

    BTW - Did you add your 2 cents on the thread about CW80?????

    I had the same problem about 2 hours before you. I reported it to Peter T Davis (Owner) and he said he did a few changes and it should be ok now.

    If it happens again PM him or me,

    Thanks!!!

    Like the stage coach, you need to pair up with Thor and get some cowboys for the layout.

    Yes, we have no bannans but twinkly lights we have plenty.

    Good morning, we have an inch of snow this morning and most is sticking to the payment.

    It is still snowing a fine wet snow and it should remain 30* all day.

    I have a little shopping left, I sold a lady a train car on ebay and she has four grand kids, I ask her that, any who, I am pcking in a gift of Christmas candies for them.I just think I would enjoy that.
    This is a cheap knock of brand of the Life Savers book.

    Up goes the tree to day in front ofthe big window/patio doors and later in the weekthe living room tree when I can get to that.

    As for now I am going back to bed for a while.

    Good Moring All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 16 and headed to 25 with overcast skies.
    Maybe more lake effect snow is coming.

    Vacation is great, got up watched the news and people going to work and I had coffee and cookies. Will do some work on the layout later.

    Gil - I though you would like that Stagecoach. It will fit in well with my layout being the turn of the century. This is the only one that I have found in 1/43 scale.

    Merry Christams and Happy New Year

    Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year

    We hope your past year of 2005 was as eventful and rewarding as was ours.

    My transplant is coming along wonderfully and the dog is getting fatter.

    My old Caddy only broke down twice this year and the home owner asc. was real white about me working on it in the yard this summer.

    I cleared up that nasty algae problem with the inflatable swimming pool and I managed to paint one of the garage doors before the cold weather set in.

    We are planning a surprise birthday party for Mawmaw and I have made a deposit on the VFW banque hall and contacted Ernie Volivschvitz and his Midwest Polka Kings for the entertainment.

    The church ladies circle will prepare a buffet of little wennies and hot sauce Like they done when Buster died two years past.

    My brother knows a fella from Clarksburg who's cousin in the junk business or something in Pittsburgh and can get a couple kegs of Iron City cheap.

    Something about falling off a truck??? I hope thay aren't all fizzed up.

    Melvin had the pink eye and got over that but Pud got a rash after working for a fella who sells used 50 gallon drums and had to quit that job. We was hoping it would last long enough for him to get started on catching up on his child support so he wont be incarcerated again this Christmas.

    Dean's boy is in the Navy and got married to this Korean girl and they might get home for the holiday we hope and Deanna is still dating that hip hop musician fella in Cleveland. Paw Paw dont think much of that but we told him its the way they do now and he said it was on a count of MTV or something and wanted to take out the cable.

    Good news though still, the government increased my disability and mom finally got here workman's comp.

    Well, that is about it I guess.

    You all come and see us soon and bring the kids , the pool is OK now and wont give the kids any ear infection this time.

    Love,

    Bubba :wave:

    Worked on pic last night for Sunday Photo Fun on CTT. I always like setting up new scenes.

    Chief is still taking too many meds, hope he gets well soon :cool:
