    Found out this morning that a bomb went off inside the Leesville Wal-Mart this past weekend. What really disturbs me about it is that nothing at all was done to get people out of the store. Everything continued as if it was business as usual. The first order of business should have been to clear then store. Why? Common sense says that where there's one bomb there may well be another. I think Wal-Mart hasn't heard the end of this.

    Raining here still. Northeasterner brewing. Guess all on regular TV is elections. Speaking of elections: I am an elected Democrat Official so I can post this joke.

    Weird little truck!

    Hey - RT, sorry I was distracted yesterday, good news on the meds, I hope they finally have things figured out!?

    Chief, that's a good one!

    Picked up some train magazines. Just waiting for the election results, but as Sir James emailed me, we won't know until tomorrow - if we are lucky this time.

    Good morning folks

    It was 55 F on the way in this morning. You can feel the humidity is up and making things a little uncomfortable. High today will be 63 F and we could see 70 F before the weekend.

    Last night was one of those nights where time just flew by. My daughter had her flute lesson which I took her to. I did a few little chores around the house and the next thing I knew it was bed time. I did look at the trains as I carried laundry to and from the washing machine and dryer.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Good evening,

    Boy is it getting dark early, I do not like it, but can't do anything about it.

    Sir James, I told the wife that you said it was OK to wait till all the leaves are down to rake them up. :mrgreen:

    Actually they haven't started to fall a lot yet, the pear and the two maples are still mostly green and the dogwoods although colored have most of their leaves. But when it starts it will come all at once, which is good. The large pin oak that we used to have in the front yard was killed by lightning a few years ago. In some ways that was a good thing as it dropped leaves most of the winter, a real pain.

    Got to get to the gym tomorrow, it's been two weeks and that is way to long. I'll probably struggle to do my regular routine.

    On last thing, my middle grandson (14, actually won't be 14 for another week) who lives in CO got his first deer today, a 4 point buck. I forgot to ask him if that was Eastern or Western count as around here we always use Eastern.

    Chief, are you sure the IT people don't have you blocked from the forum? :rolleyes:
    I saw that cartoon before, but it is a good one.

    Good morning.

    It's 63 and cloudy. The high should be around 80 and there's a chance of thunderstorms later.

    I put in a lot of work on my Athearn SDP40F and now it runs as quiet and smooth as any of my Atlas or Proto 2000 locos. I removed the blue box motor and drive with the exception of the trucks and installed a new Athearn motor, hex shafts and worms. I also installed new nickel silver wheels. The frame, trucks and body are all that remain of the original BB items. All the new components came from a scrapped AC4400. The nylon motor mounts were removed and the motor has been properly mounted with screws. All in all a good rebuild.

    Good morning folks

    Temperature on the way in this morning was a balmy 59 F. High today will be 64 F. I ran in and out of rain all the way to work this morning. It looks like that it will be that way all day.

    Yesterday my daughter’s volleyball team had their awards ceremony. My daughter got the Hustle Award. Her team finished the season 6 and 6. It could have been better. With the exception of few girls the team lacked a killer instinct. They had teams down and could not put them away. Also once they fell behind they gave up. I guess you can say the team was a reflection of the coach as she was the same way. My daughter is already looking forward to playing for the 8th grade coach next year.

    We had our Cub Scout den meetings last night so no trains again.

    I hope everybody has a good day.
