    Good morning folks

    It is 45 F right now with a high of 66 F. I am heading into the office late this morning. I have to take the kids to the doctors for regular check-ups. We got ghosted last night. What is ghosting? It is when a kid leaves some candy, and a note saying you have been ghosted. Then you have to ghost three friends. You put the note in the window so that you can’t be ghosted again. So last night the kids had to ghost three of their friends.

    I finished weathering the wheels and trucks for the LV, PC, SCL, and N&W boxcars. I need to seal the wheels, however.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Chuck - praying that your wife's surgery goes well.

    Tom - The teachers where my wife works as school nurse do the same thing, only they call it getting "booed." I think I like "ghosting" better!

    Beautiful day in Prattville - sunny and about 50 degrees this am. Will get up to around 70. We have our church fall festival tonight. Should be a lot of fun.

    Good evening guys,

    Just a short post to say hello. Been a busy day, blood work at the cardioligists first thing this morning and then the rest of the day at TCA Museum. Stopped at Cool Trains on the way home and picked up a preordered PRR RS-3, haven't had a chance to take it out of the box yet - tomorrow. Also had to shop for groceries on the way home as Jean has been working crazy hours.

    All take care,
    John

    Good morning folks

    A little milder this morning than the last few. It was 55 F as I headed out to work. Our high is supposed to be 68 F. With all the rain and mild weather I may have to mow the front yard one more time.

    We have pounds of candy from the kids’ trick or treating. I think we have enough to last us until Easter. The kids split up this year. My son went his friends and my daughter went with her friends. For a while last night they were hitting the same houses but then went different ways at the end of the block.

    We heard back from the masonry contractor who is going to be repointing our house and the work should be started and completed before Thanksgiving. We have been trying to get this done for two years. Every time we would get ready to schedule the work something else would come up.

    I sealed the wheels and added them back to the LV, PC, SCL, and N&W boxcars.

    Chuck hope all is well with your wife.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    'Morning, all! Cool and foggy this morning in Prattville. A front is supposed to come through later and clear out the moisture and lower the temps.

    We had a great turn-out for our fall festival at the church last night. Over 2400 people came through in three hours. The weather was perfect and everyone seemed to have a great time.

    November already! I'm about ready to start on the Christmas layout. :mrgreen:

    Morning. Getting 4 Runner this PM. Wife could not wait. Been on the phone handling that and County/Town business. Dr. John, I think the Churches are now handling the Halloween thing very good. Seems to have brought in some people that are not Church goers. Gives kids quality "treats" and not just candy. Later

    Good morning folks

    It was a brisk 44 F as I headed out the door this morning. Our high is supposed to be 60 F. We spent last night putting the Halloween decorations away and getting the house ready for the Thanksgiving decorations.

    I weathered the wheels for the two Atlas Auto parts boxcars (Chessie & Western Maryland) and the two Trainman Boxcars (Ashley Drew & Northern). I also began weathering the trucks.

    No sports or kids events this weekend. I have not had one these since July. We do have to the biweekly grocery shopping torture sessions.

    I would like to finish weathering the trucks on the Atlas and trainman boxcars. Then I would like to weather them along with the other four boxcars on the bench. I need to add details to the Farm House area.

    I hope everybody has a good day.
