Happy Thanksgiving gang!

We had our winds yesterday till about 6:00PM Gusts of 60+ then they moved east.. Never lost power but lights were blinking some. Did hear one loud crash as the neughbor had a dead Ash come down in the wind.Grand kids left with their mom around 4:00.

No plans for today just wifey and me having a stuffrd turkey breast and maybe Brian will come over to eat with us seeing his mom is visiting folks out on the left coast.

8N I spread 300 ton of gravel just this spring. Our 3203 John Deere was the best thing I bought for this place! Yes

Happy Thanksgiving!

We will be celebrating very late, Linda is working 4-10:30 today at Macy's. Once I pick her up, I'll have a good scotch and we will have Thanksgiving dinner at that point. Corey and I have baked a cake, we'll do the frosting in a little bit.

Good evening all,

Spent 2 hours mulching leaves for last time.  Ran gas out of mower.  Lucas came home and we had a roast for supper and then the 3 of us went to see Knives Out, a surprisingly good movie.   Good acting.  Nice plot and very entertaining.  Cool today, but dressed warm enough to work outside.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Happy black Friday, boys.  Had a very nice dinner at my folk's place, on top of the mountain.  Came home to find that youngest's bf had cut up and stacked the down tree, removing what his grandparents could use.  I think a thank you gift card to Buffalo Wild Wings (his fave) is in order.

On the train front, youngest princess started painting my river bed and canal basin with Americana brand acrylic paints.  She's mixing titanium white, phthalo green-yellow, and cobalt turquoise to match the hue of the Dept. 56 canals on the layout.

I began designing and cutting the styrofoam mountain backdrop (inspired by the "Bumble's" stomping grounds) for our North Pole layout.

Crew call at 0900 to remove fallen trees off the scenic railroad.  Gotta bundle up.

Good evening all,

Had a nice day at younger daughter's place.  Found she is expecting our 7th grandchild (her second).  Came home and Lucas set up our 50 inch TV for us.  A good day.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,
