    Great to see ya back Doug! Glad you are on the mend.
    Chief, have a great time. I did see the OGR article on the layout up that way. May have to take it in during a visit to the area.
    Jon, how did the work on the bathroom go regarding the cold? I hope you were able to warm things up a bit and not have to worry about frozen pipes.
    We have been having some heavy rain. Temps are to go into the 70s, but I suspect a cold front on the way. Have not had a chance to keep up with weather as been busy with work. I did some more gluing on the Doll House this morning before I came in at 0430. It should be well curred by now, so I will do some more work on it when I get home.
    Hope everyone is blessed this weekend.
  2. Glad to hear you are back and feeling good, Doug.

    It is snowing like crazy in Ohio.

    Good afternoon.

    I went to Alexandria this morning tio keep my angiogram appointment, arriving an hour ahead of schedule. Got my eyes examined real good and the doc shot a bunch of laser beams into them. Came back to Leesville and stopped in at the Sheltered Workshop to see about a call I got from them yesterday and worked there the rest of the day. I only got home a little while ago. I won't be on much today because I can't see very well. My vision should be clearer tomorrow.
  4. We are under a :winter1:Blizzard Warning. :winter1: If this was NYC it would be all over the national news. Not one word on CBS or NBC news tonight. :curse:

    I have 12 SOQs to review this weekend, so no trains.

    Told you not to mess with Mother Nature and the Chief. train97bounce7

    Charlotte BPS. There one hour and fifteen minutes and bought one reel and sold 5 chargers. More than my competitor sold all day.

    I have desided to take a forum vacation from CTT. It is not fun anymore and one person makes me so mad. I do not need to lose my temper over a nothing like that. So, I will be posting here. Still fun here. Nice group of folks.

    Dennis, I am going to be in Roanoke VA May 1 thru 4. Pam is suppose to go with me. Maybe you and the gang can drive up. Visit O. Winston Link Museum, VA Transportation Museum and some other places. Pam will shop the big mall and lay by the pool. Ohters are welcome too.

    Time to eat. Later
  6. I hear you, Chief. Feel the same way.

    Snow stopped here. More due tonite.
  7. The Blizzard is great. :thumb: Reminds me of the old days before Global Warming.

    Yes, CTT has a poster that gives inaccurate information and then earases it and does a replace.

    Chief sent you an email about the $10,000 you owe me.:mrgreen:

    John F., I am up to the third floor! I have the Gables to finish and then the trim, etc. Wife is impressed with the progress, so I am allowed to be happy about it too.

    Chief, Buckeye, I do check in at the other place from time to time, but I figure it is better to stay away and let the situation handle itself. I suspect that some problems will be in enough trouble soon that they will just go away.

    Watching a show on the USS Enterprise air craft carrier during WWII. I am really liking these shows on Sat. with HD in HDTV. Got a few train shows on the DIVO too that I am checking out as well as 12 "how to" videos I am checking out. Lots to do on a rainy day.

    I hope everyone has a blessed weekend.

    Chief and Buckeye, if you haven't noticed, I mostly only post on the Sunday Photo Fun there. And it used to be such a fun place. I am glad this place is still fun! :thumb:

    Speaking of fun, how much fun is 24" of snow and 35 mph winds :eek: when on Tuesday, we had 1/2" of freezing rain and ice and then 6" of snow on top of that. :cry:


    The Weather Channel is even in town for this storm! wall1
  11. Does this mean that Spring isn't coming next week ???
  12. Chuck....I think you might have stumbled on to something.

    Details for Saturday, March 08
    Snow and gusty winds. Snow will be heavy at times and with gusty winds blizzard conditions will exist. Cold. High 24F. Winds NNW at 20 to 30 mph. Snow accumulating 6 to 10 inches. .

    Tom...You are in real trouble when the Weather Channel is camping on your door step.:eek:

    Good evening folks

    We just got in from setting up the Blue and Gold Banquet for tomorrow. It took us about 2 ½ hours to do it.

    I had to run out and get something and almost got killed. Some moron on the cell phone blew through a red light. He went through it without one bit of hesitation an almost hit me if I had not stopped quickly enough. He almost got the guy coming in the opposite direction from me. It had me shaking.

    Time to get some rest before the big banquet.

    I hope everyone has a good night.

    Sounds bad! we have 42C in the shade,( got down to 28C overnight) hot Northly winds = clouds of dust, & haven't seen rain for 3months.

    but at least my bones don't hurt.

    HI GIZ,
    Well we got rain here and then maybe snow? Feel for YUZ GIZ in SNOHIO. Hope you swim out of that one.
    Went to BARRYs today and picked up EL CAPITAN SET for BROTHER. Got me a Lionel Legacy CN SD40 ran it tonite and works great. Have off on Monday so going to do big workout on layout.
    TOM, Yes I have noticed you only post Sunday Photo Fun and yes I will contribute to you postings.
    CHIEF, I have boycotted the pot all week. Like YUZ GIZ said just not that much fun anymore. So going to stay away and see what happens.
    All have a good nite and oh YEAH NO PILE UPS for running trains for two hours. MILLERSBURG YARDS DAY SIX NO PILE UPS!!!
