    Morning all. Storms gone. Sun is coming out. Breakfast and then store. Will leave early unless things change. We have had 3 weeks of the same sale so BPS staff, our staff and customers are now tired. If you have not bought it by now, you are a procrastinator. Hope all have a great day.

    PS: where is Tom [Spankybird]???????

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    Where the temp is 32 deg with snow melting.

    Cheif - were here, but have been very busy. This weekend is the NMRA Div 5 show in NE Ohio. This is one of the two largest shows in Ohio and its only 4 miles from my house and 2 miles from the Museum.

    We extended our hours because of the show, so some long days. Last night we had a Vendor Open house at the museum after the show ended.

  4. GoodMorning from S.E. Ohio.....
    It is cold outside. 30 degrees. Wind blowing. Going up to 46 today, with a little sunshine.
    Today, I am going to watch the Nascar race. Yesterday's race was called for rain.
    Spankybird...What do you think about starting a Sunday Photo Fun thread on this Forum ??
    Maybe some train time this afternoon.
    Everyone have a nice day.

    Sir James, sorry to hear the wife is sick. My wife just got over being sick for about a month with the help of inhalers, steriods and antibiotics. What a mess! Laundry day and feet are up, so all is well in my neck of the woods. TTYL

    :wave: Good morning all, still off work:curse:, tomarrow is weigh in day:mrgreen:

    Need to take some pics with new camera/binoculars only has two buttons but a lot of different modes.

    have been reading a lot lately "your boke because you want to be" by the guy who hosts big spender show and realionair & get real get rich by Farrah Gray. They are very entertaining to read and point out the obvious ways to save and spend wisely that most of us take for granted. Library books are free and you can learn a bit in spare time(which I have a lot of at this moment.):nope:

    I have too many hobbies at this time Trains, Computers(games, Programing, may be ebay some day), electronics and old radios, bball cards, casting and molding. and the cabbose:shock:

    morning folks,have not posted here in a long while. Very busy with work. Really looking forward to break even if it is only Friday and Monday. The following week I have a convention in Louisville. Should be fun. Anyone know of any good train stores in Louisville?

    Take care,

  9. Mitch...If you are driving to Louisville via I-70 and I-71, you will be passing two great train stores in the Wheeling area and one in Mason, OH. All three of these stores are less than two miles from the highways.

    There is a train store on the east side of Louisville. I don't know the name.

    Good afternoon all. Had the picnic on the Church grounds, it was fun. We flew kites and enjoyed the 85 degree temps with blue sky. Wife is out enjoying the mall and buying clothes. I am home babysitting and in need of a nap.

    Hope everyone has a great day.

    Oh boy, 85 - it was barely 35 here. Well, it's coming someday. Had a delightful conversation with Brutus today. Hope to troubleshoot the reverse loop on the layout - part of it is dead and I don't know why.

    Glad I cought you at home, Doug! I had a great time and hope to talk again in the future! We're watching The Quiet Man now - our annual St. Patrick's Day custom. We usually watch Darby O'Gill as well, but it got too late in the day and that is a scary movie for our kids, maybe we'll watch it at the end of the week while they are on their school break. Oh, I think it might have been in the 50's here today - it looked nice out. We get a different weather pattern in the St. Louis area - it's like a long line of weather that comes up the River and then makes a big circle around us.

    CSX - I don't know much about money except this, I've never had enough! ;-)

    Sr. James, Class of '57, now that was a great year!!! :thumb:
    I do have a year on you in age though. And yes I know what you mean about price rises. The old income stays very near the same, but not the expenses.

    Hope everybody has a great week.

    Yes John I knew the old folks like us would understand. I have a birthday in june so I'm staying with you. My wifes birthday is wed ,her mother wanted a boy on St Patrick's day but got a girl two days later instead named her Patricia instead of getting a Patrick. Lucky for me as I would not be happy married to a Patrick. Have a good week,,,S.J.

    Thanks LAZ. Watched the later west coast version of John Adams on HBO. Then fell asleep [reclinerized]. Trip home was OK. Went to In-laws for dinner. Fed deer and etc. Talked to Shake and Bake. He called and was running late getting home. Probably did not have time to post. Back to sleep until morning. Later
