Mornin' all!

Finished that area in the attic last night with Corey's help, had to make a quick trip down to Home Depot as when we went to attach the shelves, I realized I only had four 1½" screws left. Home Depot had all of their Christmas trees lit up, it was sooooooooo purty. (Blech!) Did 5 cutouts to fit the boards against the back studs and around the diagonal beams, screwed 'em down, and we're done for a while. Maybe pick it up after Thanksgiving, we'll see.

After finishing that up, we put the big web up for the spiders in the family room. That's what Corey wanted to do, so since he helped me I wanted to get that done. He's a freshman in high school this year, so I don't know how much longer he'll be into decorating for the different holidays. I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Another cool, dreary day in store. Currently in the upper 40's. Slight possibility of rain.  Maybe tomorrow if it's drier I'll drive the SS into work.

Have a good one!

Wow, it works!!

Been trying to get on for 2 days.....

Had to meet Jenni in Bordentown, I left my computer in the Magnum, I have the kid's Jetta as they have landed in FLA USA until Tuesday.  Jenni's going to get the Magnum serviced it is WAAAAAAY over due.
So I'm a wee bit off schedule.  Sucks, but I'm not up at 0600 in the AM to think of these things......

Got my ration of $hit this morning from the Flyer faithful after my Devils got shut out in Philly last night.  Insult to injury at this point....

Monthly meeting tonight, should be fun considering I missed the Line/Exec meeting on Tuesday.

55F with SUN right now, should hit 60 later.  May get some 2 wheel therapy Saturday, I have to run to the Credit Union in Hamilton.

Thanks for the prayers for Dad.....tough sledding right now, but more information should come about later today.

Evening folks!

Pretty warm and hoomid today, 91. The big 'front' is not taking us into the 50's tonight as originally hesterically presented by our weather wonks. Now 60's like the last one.

Still working on the std ga tender rebuild. With my busted up right hand (think it is a bone bruise) I am working at quarter speed...

DJ - attic complete

Chiefs 11,000 steps, easy when you're lost in the woods...

Congrats to Buckeye - today is the one year anniversary of the kickback job he has, playing golf, attending dinners, having to drink adult beverages...


Continued prayers for Anj's dad Angel

Regards, Roy

Good evening all,

"My" soccer girls advanced to sectional finals for first time in team history, winning on PKs 3-2 after ending in OT 1-1.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Hello there,

Prayers for Buckeye

windy with high tides here. Water got about an inch deep around our camper. Didn't reach the next site. I'm guessing about a foot around the deepest ones. Walked over to the inlet this morning and watched the surf. 

Planning to do nothing the rest of today..

Yesterday was a trip to Assateaque to see the horses and a short walk on the beach. Then late lunch in Berlin MD followed by a visit to both Toy Town locations, came away empty handed. 

Time for a nap before lunch. 

 

Prayers for those in need

TGIF

Regular meeting went without a hitch, nominations for offices and officers next month...should be a doozy....lol

Devils loose in a shoot out 4-3, still winless.  Yanks face the 'Stros in Houston tomorrow night 8 PM.  THIS will be an epic series......

Nothing on Dad yet, will check in today.  Mom's birthday lunch tomorrow.

After work, will be bringing the extra train stuff downstairs for evaluation and up for sale, possibly Craigslist.  I hate e-bay......and Facebook Market Place is a huge waste of time.

Car show on Sunday.  housework in there somewhere, while the kids are away....

NJ Transit is jumping on the Heritage Unit bandwagon... So far an ALP is PRR decorated, a GP-38 is Jersey Central Blue and there is a third that escapes me.

Hope Buckeye is ok......
Prayers for all in need......

Back later

Been real windy and that brings on the fires. I got the stomach flu during the night, feeling better already but no energy, I plan ongoing back to bed for awhile.

Fires all around my area, major freeways all closed completely. Everybody is at a standstill. I have a rental house in a canyon brush area, and watching TV and radio I don't know how close the fire is to my house. It has survived 3 or 4 fires but is always scary.

Morning folks!

Prayers for Buckeye! And for all those in need Angel

44 this am, it was 92 yesterday afternoon! Some badly needed rain started with the front last night and just ended a while ago. The ms and I sat out on the back porch watching the lightening storm/rain as the front rolled through.

Knuckle on right hand is a bit better this morning, I can bend the finger some!

Regards, Roy

On the TV news in Porter Ranch where the big church I go to is the fire isn't out but no longer a danger to houses the authorities still won't let redences return to their homes.

This is pure flaunting their ability to inconvence thousands for no reason.

Buckeye, glad you are back home! Heal up quickly! Angel

A beaut of a day here with sun and 60's,! mid-70's tomorrow.

Our internet went out yesterday. The tech today found someone working on the new fiber system yesterday disconnected the line to our side of the street. Since the system is new, we are the only folks on our street on the new high speed fiber.

Regards, Roy

Mornin' boys.  Crisp 37 degrees along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  Big train yesterday; bigger today.  Youngest Princess is home for the weekend, and I've been getting my daddy-daughter time in when I can.

Got to Michael's, and picked up some artist acrylic paints for my layout's waterways.  Also picked up the Lemax Sugar Plum Bakery (thanks to Wifey), for the North Pole display.

Buckeye - Glad you are back home.  Speedy recovery.  I'm sure Bob Keller will approve the Pacemaker, since he loves all things NYC...  Take it easy, Sir.

Great news Buckeye!!!  Yes

Nice fall weather here on The North Bluff above Marseilles and starting to dry out. Grand-kids are coming over this evening to spend the night and hang out here tomorrow rather than spend the day in day care. We will have some fall fun things to do.

Should also run some trains.

Best get!

Evening All,

I just received a text message from Roy, He is currently in the hospital!  As most of you may recall he had an incident when he was macheing a part on a lathe this past week.  He jammed his knuckle on the cutting tool.  He ended up going to ER today, and they determined he had a infection going on.  As a result he is on an IV for antibiotics, and they are keeping him overnight.  He is scheduled to see an Orthopedic Surgeon tomorrow.  (Mon).  He indicated in his message, that he was not reachable via phone or may not be able to post for a couple of days.  (If I hear any more from him, I will definitely pass it on.)

Locally, we are escaping any issues regarding the fires, the active ones in So. Cal., are about 60 miles from us, North and East.  We did have a small earthquake thrown in for fun yesterday, it was a small one only 2.5, and it was a sharp jolt, not a rolling one.  Did have a big mess from the Santa Ana winds and all the fallout from neighbors trees.  Ended up clogging the pool filter system, and water supply lines.  Got that all cleaned up and cleared out today.

About all from here.

Don

Mornin' all!

Best wishes to Roy for a quick stay in the hospital

Can't believe how much the PC crowd downplays Columbus Day nowadays. Hell, our school system doesn't even give that day off anymore, much less do any type of history about it.

Glad you're back home Buckeye, now does this make you a candidate for the next Iron Man movie?

Welp, got the spiders up yesterday, I'll take some shots and post them. Corey's now talking about getting the Halloween trains out, damn, I really raised him right, didn't I?

Was looking at what I'd need to buy from Home Depot to set up lights in the attic. Really just need a junction box which would house 4 plugs. I already have 12 gauge electrical wire that I'd run from the current light junction box up to the upper beams in the attic - need to check if that junction box is metal or plastic. I had thought I had metal conduit from a much earlier project, but I'll be damned if I can find it. Corey and I went through my tool chests yesterday afternoon, found several coils of the above mentioned wire, but not the conduit. Ah, well, don't need it as long as I ground everything properly.

Hey RT, you mentioned a while back about getting a pair of LED shoplights at a great price, where was that again?

Linda's getting on with her Lyme disease antibiotics, the neurologist has recommended she get a spinal tap to check if it's in her spinal fluid. She's coming up with every excuse not to do it. I don't know how necessary it is, any advice?

Typed this up when it was still morning, but how it's afternoon. Damn work getting in the way!

Have a good one!

Afternoon All,


I did hear from Roy, the Orthopedic Dr, worked on the knuckle doing a "simple" clean and drain, apparently that did not do great.  So they are waiting a day and may require another Dr., to operate on it for joint repair.  That decision will be made on Wed..  Meanwhile he will be staying in the Hosp, so far he has had 4 bags of antibiotics via IV so far. 
Hopefully, the antibiotics may have a significant improvement in the next 24 hrs..

Watched the finish of the rain delayed Nascar race (Talledaga), today.  Wow WHAT an exciting race!!!  It was unique in so far as the Manufacturers getting involved with their specific drivers, coercing them to "work" together.  And that had a lot of influence IMO of how the race played out!

Prayers for all those having health issues!!

Don
