Has been real windy and cold, now the wind has died down. Wed 67 Thur 69

In Calif. the license plate stays with the car. The new owner is suppose to transfer ownership over to him. With this car I sold last Oct. the registration renewal was due in another month so if he didn't transfer ownership and renew registration then he is driving around with expired tags and you would think he would have been pulled over by now

Mornin' boys.  Sunny and a breezy 39 along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  When every one else was celebrating the New Year's, yours truly was performing a class 3 brake test, in cold snowy weather.  Didn't walk into my house until 0230 hrs.  Just another day.  But, it was the last trip for 3 weeks.  Gonna take several days to just try and get healthy.  Getting back on keto too.

Good evening all,

Good weather today.  Went searching in the attic for train stuff and found lots.  Nothing implemented yet, but have material for lots of projects now.  Watched "The Two Popes" on Netflix tonight.  Even if you are not Catholic, it is still a good show.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Hello there,

hope all had a Happy New Year. Spent last evening at daughters place.

Great room

Daughters new great room with about 3/4 of the mounts installed, a few are grandson's.  I was standing in the kitchen area.

Was home by 10. Mrs and I went to 9am Mass today, watched the parade, took my Tahoe to AAMCO to have the transmixer rebuilt, a quick visit with mom then home. The whole clan was here for pork & sauerkraut this evenin and were all gone by 7.

lights

Farm house and town house lights. probably the last year for the trees, they've got a hard to treat fungus that will probably kill them.

santa

While on pictures...all three granddaughers a couple weeks ago.

Best get to bed.

 

Prayers for those in need

Happy New Year!

Collards???? Let me check my list.  That's what I thought the Chief is trying to do me in again.Hmm Collards can cause kidney stones. Crying

Going to try to work on the layout today. I need to purchase more screws to connect the joists to the L-girders.

Banks...Great photos.

Chilly here on the North Bluff as well Fife, but full sun helps.

Taking wife tp PT at 10:30 then no plans.

Dennis, that is weird that the plates stay with the car when you sell it. Seems it leaves you open for all kinds of issues.

Nice pictures Banks, The great room freaked wifey out... Laugh She won't let me have one deer head. SIL wants to give us that 12 point he got here last year but she is having no part of it. Tongue Tied

Re-uped my CTT seeing as thet dropped the price an extra $10.00 to get me back.

Get to have my throat opened up some more tomorrow with that ballon thingy. It sure helped the last time so this time should get it back to the right size. It was so small the last time they did it they said I would need a secont shot at it to get to size without tearing it open. He said it should be around 22mm and it was at 10mm so they went to 15mm last time and will do the rest tomorrow.

We have a 5" lift mattress wedge coming today to help with my Gerd. Hope it helps.

Best get!

Morning.  52 and going to mid 60's.  70 tomorrow with some showers later.

Dennis, agree with KEV.  No transfer means you still own vehicle.  Hope you have bill of sale to prove you sold.

Fifey, warm up from that day in the cold.

Banks, Wifey will not let me have mounts.  Will put antlers in Train Box.

Country ham biscuits, blackeye peas and turnip greens [no collards yesterday].

Buckeye, Knob Creek is better [get the stronger version 120 proof].

Anyone heard from Brent?

Mike, you still chasing that round ball?

Later.

Mornin' boys.  Wet and 42 along the Alleghanie front range.  Took Christmas down inside and out yesterday.  Tree still up, as well as North Pole, and I'm being told that's being put away this weekend.

After a nice fried chicken dinner, spent the evening in the train room.  I've been running a mish-mash of equipment this past month, so it was nice to return the "old tyme" choo-choos to the 4 lines.  Youngest Princess is supposed to finish painting my canal before she heads back to college.

Mornin' boys.  Foggy and forties along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  

Took Wifey and youngest princess to Lowe's yesterday.  They are having a 40% off/free delivery appliance sale.  New GE fridge and dishwasher will be headed to Fifedom.  Wifey happy.  Went to Applebee's to celebrate.  

Perhaps I can get the youngest to help me set up a Shutterfly account today.  Would like to fire up Sunday Photo Fun again.

Hello there,

Spent most of the day watching the PA Farm Show on PCN. Would love to go but crowds to big. Almost a phobia for me.

Took a couple pics while watching

Mornin' boys.  Thin layer of Snohizo along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  Actually fired up the pellet stove to take the chill off.  Will have Christmas tree/layout totally stored away by noon.  Trying to convince Wifey we need another store room shelf unit, just for the Dept 56 items.  Stuffing those things back in their tight packaging is murder!

Banks - Rock'n it old school.  I like that.

fife... We have had great experiences with Lowes delivery, not so great with Home Depot. Lowes has their own delivery trucks in this area while HD contracts them out. 

No snow for the snow cannon. 

Have a great week.

Sun has turned to clouds. We did get  few a hours of sun this morning. 30s for the day. Yes lock that snow cannon up it has been great without snow, I'm lovin it even though winter could catch up and be nasty later. No breaking news here. Granny Pat is mending and doing well.

I am back, bet you never missed me! Laugh

 Just got home from a 15 minute procedure that lasted 50 hours included a ambulance ride and two nights in the hospital. A punctured esophagus.

Will tell you more when I get caught up here.

Good evening all,

Wow, that is quite the story, Kevin.  Evidently you are well enough to be home.  Will be interested in the details.  Got most of the Christmas stuff put away.   Did a 4 mile walk this afternoon at a 16 minute pace.  Had to jog a bit to do that.  Weather nicer today but did the walk inside.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Mornin' all.

Just kicked the boys out the door to catch the bus. Headed back to bed for an hour.

Just saw we got about half an inch of snow last night. It's supposed to go up to the mid 40's today, so that won't last.

So about 2 weeks ago I was carrying 2 logs down from the woods and slipped on some wet leaves. Well it looks like I pulled a hip flexor in my right hip. Hurts like a bear. I start out okay, but by the end of the day it's painful walking. Trying to work through it, but like my shoulder this past year, it's screwing up my sleep. Also, it seems the more I sit the worse it gets, which makes being at work kind of uncomfortable. This is not fun.

Got Tyler & Corey to help me cut up the last logs yesterday and stack them on the wood rack. That should hold us for this season, just need to split more of it.

Have a good one!

Morning.  Beautiful day out.  Sunny and 50's.

KEV, stop trying to eat chicken bones.  Don't even give them to dogs.  Jokes aside.  Glad you are OK.

Had over 50 people here yesterday afternoon for lady announcing her running for State Senate.  Lots of "politicos" including US Congressman.

That was after driving across county to BIL's Dad's visitation.  Rush Rush.

Service CRV this AM.  County Commissioners this evening.  

Later.
