    And so now you see the dilemma many face. I mean, right here in this diner there are some compelling postings Pro and Con. Peacefully, thank you. As pointed out, the media reports are biased, politicians have their own agendas and playing to the economics of the situation. I not sure what the...

    I was saying that very same thing to the Conductress the other day. Wondering if there will be a show in Stafford in Feb. 2022?

    Good Morning all! Well 2 extra large lawn trash bags full of limbs and twigs, and about 350 pine cones later the place is looking better. The yards are soft and very muddy. All in all if you have to have a hurricane this was one to pick, at least for us. Some others were not so fortunate as...

    Good Morning all! Well we are coming out the other side of Hurricane Nicholas. A lot of branches down in the front yard, street flooded about 2/3 the way down and the neighbors chicken coop is blown down. Lights blinked off and on a half dozen times but remained on, however some homes behind me...

    Good Morning all! Off and on showers predicted for the day. Full on downpours, thunderstorms and possible tornados during the night. We have stocked up on groceries, water, gas for the gen and the cars topped off. So now we sit and wait. During Harvey we recorded 47 inches in 3 days and didn't...

    Good Morning all! This will be a quick drop in as we are expecting Nickolas to visit later this evening and possibly hang around till Wednesday. I did a test run of the new generator and that went well. 65 db. in the back bedroom. I need to go out and secure all the stuff around the house...

    My connection to 9-11. My first full time job after graduating high school was with Lafayette Shipping, a Customs Brokerage. I would take the paper work for importing goods and walk it through the Customs House. There were 2 companies working out of the same office, Lafayette and Hankimer. There...

    Good Afternoon all! A rare day in Texas indeed. I spent the entire afternoon completing the punch list on my generator shed and barely sweat. The temp is near 90 but the humidity is down in the low 50's. Nice day. Tomorrow I'll add oil and fuel and fire up the generator for the first time...

    Good Morning all! Quite warm, but it's a dry heat. Bull feathers, 95 under a glaring sun is hot no matter what. Flo, breakfast tacos please, with coffee. The latest report says 3 cups of coffee are good in the prevention of heart failure. Cannot be decaf. If you wait a few weeks the report will...

    Have you gave any thought as to what an upper and lower case ampersand might look like? (&) (&)

    Wow, that first photo requires a second look. Not a lot gives away it's a model.

    Good Afternoon all! We seem to have gotten a break in the humidity, forecasted to be low for a couple of days. While it's still hot temperature wise, it just doesn't feel so bad. Willie - a little prayer going out for your brother. Sherrel - Look at it this way, you won't be worried about the...

    I have been dabbling in N Scale for about 35 or so years. Your right there is so much more available now then back then, and seems to be getting better quality wise. I'm slowly replacing much of the old plastic structures with new plastic or laser cut stuff.

    Good Afternoon all! Another hot one. A "feels like" temp of 110. You just have no desire to be outside, Flo, a scotch and water please. Sherrel - I had some funny lines about RV's but I thought better of it. Did add a Blair Line fence to the Yard Cafe. You get quite a bit of fencing in their...

    Just completed my first try at rolling the dice for an operating session. It took 55 minutes to move all the cars from their existing locations to the new locations. Since I'm operating by myself it worked pretty well. I found that a little more thought could go into car movements, could make...

    Good Afternoon all. Yes it's still hot and very humid. Takes a lot out of you working outdoors. I try to plan out what I need to do and break it down into 2 hour tasks if I can. Flo, no offense, but I was thinking maybe a bag of White Castles and a AW Root Beer (diet) sure would be tasty about...

    I think I may still have one of those spouts in the garage, not positive but I think so. Well I got rained out while mowing. So I worked on another railroad project that I've had in the back of my mind. Since it's a home layout with only me operating trains I wanted some kind of a system to...
