    Hi Packers, we went to Hilton Head! Where is Aiken?

    I was looking at the Bachman ads in the latest O Scale magazine - that 0n30 stuff is sure neat looking.

    Hello all, little late posting here. Had a long busy day today. Had to go and cut the grass up my grandparents house, then ended up going on a motorcycle accident. Guy was hurting really bad. Then after that, i realized i got sunburnt and now I am in a little bit of pain. But ah well in a few days it will be tanned and i will be on my way. Would have done something with the trains today but that stuff was a little bit more important. Well have a good one everyone.

    Good morning folks

    It was a very humid 70 F this morning on the way into work. High today will be 92 F.

    No modeling last night. My daughter had a basketball game. Her team won 38 to 24. She is the tallest player on the floor and last night she finally used her size to her advantage. She dominated under the basket. I lost count of how many rebounds she had. On several occasions she followed missed shots with her own and even followed her missed shots. She just could not get them to drop, however. About 4 shots went in and out. She did score 4 points, had three or four blocked shots, about 4 assists, and a bunch of steals. This was probably the best all around game she has played.

    We are getting ready for the 4th of July. Our Cub Scout pack will be marching in a parade tomorrow morning. This is the first time in 10 plus years that the pack has marched in a parade. When I first purposed this, the old leadership thought I was crazy and said it would not work. Last year due to the lack of help I got from them we didn’t get the information in time to march. This year we had all our ducks in a row and had everything arranged weeks ago. Half of the pack is supposed to be marching.

    On Saturday we will be going to another scout event which is called Cub World Family Day. Cub World is our Council’s summer family resident camping and Family Day is the kick-off. It is being held at the campsite we camped at last month. It is a day event mainly for families who are not camping but want to partake in the theme for Cub World. They have a mystery set-up for the scouts to solve. Also several museums, sports teams, and other program partners will be there and have things such as petting zoos, rides, and games set-up for everyone to do.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Good Morning Everyone. So far today it has been a great morning. From the looks of the radar we are going to get a little bit of rain but not much. Then it is supposed to turn out to be nice the rest of the day. Hope everyone has a great day today. Stay Safe.

    Good evening guyz. Well the day was pretty nice today up until about an hour and a half ago when it started to rain. Spent most of my day with the fiance and daughter. Then had to take them to her parents house so they could go camping. I didn't want to go because I still have a few things to do around here. Hope everyone had a great day today.

    Have A Safe & Wonderful 4th of July Everyone.

    Just got back home from a busy day went to Findely and back took most of the day once there and it rained all the way up and back. When I did get home had to run over to Grove city for a cook out(indoors)

    Saw some neat train stuff on the way up in Delaware also saw what looked like an old concrete coaler with NS trains passing under it:confused:

    In Delaware on route 42 there was a building that said CCN Railroad and there was some rolling stock 2 of which were passenger cars and it looked like a museum of some sort, anyone from Delaware Ohio have any info on this place?:wave:

    Wild weather last nite, came from west to east straight across the state,thunder storms for about 3/4 hours and then poured rain the rest of the nite. Today stayed cloudy till afternoon then we got some sun and low 70s. Since the tv and laptop were unplugged last nite I ran and lubed some trains, so something got done in spite of the weather. Grilling tomorrow and the weekennd is still open for debate....Have a great day tomorrow...S.J.

    Good morning.

    The best that I can say for the weather is that it's clear at the moment. It's a pleasant 71 degrees. Later it's gonna start getting ugly. The high will be in the low 90's and there's a fair chance of rain this afternoon.

    I may be able to get some layout work done today. In fact I hope I have an uneventful weekend. Here's hoping some darn fool doesn't set off a fireworks generated fire and tries to burn the world down. Just because I'm a fire fighter doesn't mean I like putting out fires that are started out of stupidity.

    Today's Weather for:
    Sundown, LA 71446-6114 7/4/2008

    Today High: 92 Partly sunny with scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the lower 90s. Light and variable winds becoming south around 10 mph in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation 30 percent.

    Tonight Low: 72 Mostly cloudy. Isolated showers and thunderstorms in the evening. Lows in the lower 70s. South winds around 10 mph in the evening becoming light and variable. Chance of precipitation 20 percent.
