    I have joined the 21st century I now have a Wii:cry: Got bowling down pat yet to master loony tunes but hay just got it by luck this morningsign1

    Trying to see if I can scrape up some money for that Other OSU train set by LIONEL at the Buckeye corner here in Columbus. I think that would be awesome but not economical at this time. Have to save some for paint for layout first must prioritize :cool:

    Ithink my morning post got moved here. Maybe I was too sleepy this AM to notice the coffee was fresh and we ahd a new caboose to ride in. Thanks NGauger. Back from the lake. Plumber [Roger and not Joe] did a great job. Everything new from the pressure tank on. New cut offs and supplies too. Now to move the wall this weekend and make larger eating area and then remainder is large bath [plumber got ready under house so all he has to do is attach on]. Popcorn time.

    John, Jean and I usually do the same thing. She is not retired yet, but does have Fridays off, so that is our day to do our thing. We live in a fairly rural area, farm fields across the road and in back of our house. 11 houses along a country road and one farmhouse on the other side is our neighborhood. The farmhouse belongs to my Son & DIL.

    Wasted the whole day putting up one light fixture. It does look good. The laundry room is a little too bright now, might try taking out two bulbs per wife... We'll see! Didn't get anything else done though.

    Sorry for the LONG absence, I just lost interest posting here. But now I'm back, so ya'll will hopefully be seeing more of me. Got me a new road and a new plan. By the way, one major reason I quit coming here was because i made the football team for my school. I started at defensive End throughout the season and played both defensive end and left guard for our last game, which was a playoff game where we won 32-0 and got third place in the county.

    Been up all night with severe guts ache, NHS web site tells me that my meds react badly to swig[alchohol] my small sherry last night put the lid on it, so no more drugs until after my 70th in December. What a come down from eight pints of Robinsons finest to one small sherry and even that turns the screw.

    HO-HUM!!!!

    Good morning folks

    It was 45 F as I headed into work this gray morning. High today will be 58 F. We had a little bit of rain over night but not enough to get the ground wet under the trees.

    What a busy weekend! On Friday I had to turn back our unsold Cub Scout Popcorn and close out our sales with our Council. Then we had trick-or-treating. The kids had friends over after trick-or-treating for a small Halloween party. Saturday we cleaned out the garage and stored the summer outdoor furniture. Moved the snow blower up to front of the garage and started preparing for winter. I still have to finish disassembling the gazebo. We also did the grocery shopping. On Sunday we finally slept late. We took the kids out to buy Guitar Hero for the Wii. They saved up the money from their allowances and odd jobs. They both had to chip in and pay for it.

    With everything else going on no trains. This afternoon is my daughter’s last volleyball game of the middle school season.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Didn't get much done yesterday as the flu shot I got last week is doing what it's supposed to do, giving me a mild case of the flu. I should be over it in a couple of days they say. I do feel better today.

    Well all went well at DR.s office today. Infact he took me off of 2 medicines and said the other can go also eventually as I really don't need them but need to back off the medication slowly not to come off everything at once. [​IMG]. He also said everything look fine and was wondering why I needed to see him. [​IMG] I asked about the 2 different heart caths one showing a blockage and one not and asked how one could disappear and he said I can't answer what the other doctor saw or didn't see. I can only answer what this latest report shows. This has wife and I with a lot of questions now as he also asked how long I've been taking all this medication and also did I ever have a heart attack and stuff like that which I told him 2+ years on meds and no on heart attack as I never actually had a heart attack I also asked why I had this defibrillator and he said I don't know why you have it.
    Other than that been a very quiet and peacefull day. Not to much going on. Getting ready for dinner and then to bed as have work tomorrow.

    Howdy folks - 61 degrees in St. Louis and the sun was going down when I drove home at about 5. Oh well, it's that time again I guess. Tired to death of politics - glad tomorrow is it for a while. Contractor is coming to fix siding on Wednesday. Somebody shot paintballs at the front porch. Siding needs to be repaired due to someone shooting it with bb's. I think I need to hire a guard to watch over the house for a while? I'm not sure what we did, but this is getting old and expensive.

    UMM, coffee sure si fresh here now. :thumb: Softer beds in this "buggy" too. Town Board voted in a liquor store tonight. State and County run and controlled. No independant liquor stores like some states. Raining pretty good and we need it. Popcorn time and then off to bed. Did get to watch the rest of Hitman on MAX Demand. Pretty good but coping Bourne movies. Good night all.

    Good morning.

    It's 49 and clear. The high should be around 80 and partly cloudy though it may be blustery around some polling places.

    I got a package in the mail yesterday that contained two Athearn SDP40F Amtrak locos and bits and pieces of various rolling stock. I'm sure I'll be able to make use of most of it.

    Good morning folks

    It was 48 F as I hit the road. High will be 63 F will possible rain later.

    I thought I would be smart this morning and vote on the way to work. It didn’t happen. There were about 40 people in line at 7 AM at our polling place. It was the biggest crowd I have ever seen that early. I may have to leave work early this afternoon to see if I can sneak in between rushes. My wife is supposed to vote and take her father sometime during the day.

    We finished putting the Halloween decorations away last night. Then we had an impromptu family movie since we found out that the kids had off from school today. We watched Journey to the Center of the Earth. As a result no trains last night.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Morning all. Raining here. Being lazy. Off to Town Hall in a few. Get out and vote [if you have not early voted]. If you live in Ohio, go vote several times. Just use different park benches as your address. :eek::p
