    where the temp is 38 deg and headed to 48 with big rains coming.

    So Chief - when are you finding time for trains and building your bench work ? :rolleyes:

    Last night Buckeye paid me a visit and we went over to the museum so he could see what we have been working on. He like the space we have to work with. :thumb:

    Tom,

    Here is a picture of a nice Commodore. Not much in the way of scenery, but the locomotive is a gauge 1 live steamer. It started life as an Aster electiric. A friend of mine had it converted to live steam.

    Morning all!

    Beautiful day here! 70's and sunny.

    Tom (Steamtom) - that's a cool loco. I would like to see a G scale live steamer some day. The good news is since I have not seen one is I am not tempted to buy one!

    Spanky - that's great that Buckeye stopped by your place. Any photos of the momentous event?

    Have a great one all!

    Three men were sitting together, bragging about how they had given their new wives duties.

    The first man had married a woman from Indiana , and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning that needed done at their house. He said that it took a couple days, but on the third day he came home to a clean house, and the dishes were all washed and put away.

    The second man had married a woman from Utah . He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, the dishes, and the cooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.

    The third had married an West Virginia girl. He said that he told her that her duties were to keep the house clean, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, just enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher, and telephone a landscaper.

    Gotta love those mountain girls!

    Roy I have a full front page of a Philidelphia news paper spread promoting Geo. McCellan for president.

    It has a large etching of him.

    I have it mounted.

    On the back is an article about Mosby robbing the B&O of a million dollar pay roll.

    where the temp is 57 deg and headed to 62 with overcast skies and big T-storms to the south of us and headed our way. We had one big storm come thru this morning around 3:30am.

    Yesterday we even had an earthquacke, 3.0 only, but we normally don't get any here in NE Ohio.

    We were working on the museum tin plate layout. It is coming right along.

Unlike Yankee area, we are now blooming out. High 80 today. Low last night was the same as the average hihg for this time of year. Cooler later on but nothing bad. Getting ready to raid into OHIZO Friday and visit WV. Back into OHIZO on Sunday. Have a good one and God bless.

    Sorry to hear that you will not be gracing my area this week, Chief. I hope you feel better soon.

    The museum's tinplate layout is really looking great, Tom. It just keeps getting better and better.
