Saying goodbye to 2014 is a little bittersweet, saying goodbye to close friends was hard but saying hello to a new grandaughter is awesome.  To all of you I offer a hearty Prost to you, 2015 is going to be wonderful Drinks

Well Frank since you know you Rebels can't stay up past midnight and you started the new thread early, I will just move this to here. Wink

Have fun guys and stay safe. We are going to stay home, Light a fire in the fireplace, broil fish, watch The Twilight Zone marathon and go to bed early.

Sandra is a bit better today. I am a bit worse.
12 degrees out there now with 30 + MPH winds tonight. Sub 0 wind chills. No place for us out there.
Happy New Year!!!!
 
Just got a call from the SIL, Seems Lexi and Katie are in the ER. Lexi took a dive on the hardwood floor and split her chin open, That should make for a fun night. Their friends are already showing up. Dan said 3 to 4 stictiches. Can't catch a break.
Be safe!!!
 
Jon, Congrats on the new grandaughter!!!!!!    Big Smile

Happy New Years fellas.

Been sick since Sunday, yes I went to Dr yesterday and they said it was all allergies... that is why taking the anti-biotic and my two allergy meds have done nothing. Sigh

2014 was a rough year for many I know, some lost loved ones, some battled and won illnesses, and unfortunately some lost those battles. For me it was eye opening and I really hope I can make some much needed and long awaited changes.

Hope everyone has a joyous, prosperous, and healthy 2015. God Bless you all.

Page one.  Wow!

Cold here today.  Teens this morning with a high of 25.

We put 1500 miles on the van last week making the Christmas visit to Michigan.  Nice trip, but glad to be home.

Belated Christmas greetings and a current happy New Year.

Got out to see the Hobbit film and Into the Woods this week.  Both are pretty good films.  Even though Into the Woods is fairy tale themed, but it is definitely not a film for young kids.

Charlie - I liked your vidio of the sale 1225 Berkshire.  Impressive piece.  Makes me wish I'd have pulled the trigger on that one.

We had our black eyed peas in a batch of hoppin John that we cooked up tonight, washed down with some good red wine.

About all for now.

Happy New Year To All !

Want to wish all a Happy and prosperous New Year. Will be at the museum tomorrow, new years day at the museum has turned into an annual event with our spouses coming down to join us for a nice lunch and a bit of the bubbly. Will be back to the museum again on Friday so will probably not have a chance to be back on til Saturday.

Jon, The next time you and Sharyl are in town you'll be gald to know that the pipe organ has been refurbished/upgraded for the centennial with the debut tonight.

Man it is cold here for the past few days. Not near as bad as most of you guys but for Cali it is cold. There are some towns in San Diego /Riverside counties that have seen snow for the first time in many a decade, even some higher elevations of Escondido were reporting snow, Thank goodness it wasn't wide spread and sticking on the roads, most people out here can't drive in the rain let alone on snow. Heard one report where I-15 was shut down in Temecula for ice & snow.

Stayed away from the forum for a few days, had some functionality issues trying to post a few days back and was in no mood to try again for awhile.

Oh well, have a safe and sane New Year's.

Nite All.

Hello all

See they are still having fun w/ the software. 

Up at work for another week. New Years is my least favorite of holidays, so I'd rather be up here.

RIJack - good to see you back

Chief w/ a violin?! I'm guessing he may make it thru the part about 'chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough...'Stick out tongue

Rich - let's see who is the first to get on the road ... the Roadrunner or the Corvan:)

Christmas was quiet. The Brill trolley got it's last frame piece for the A end anyways. 4dr got an oil change and a new pan gasket. We also started an engine on one of the guys in the club '62 Coupe. Beautiful car and sounds like a aircraft w/ just the exhaust stacks on the heads!

Aloha and Happy New-Year-Laz-Birth-day! Hmmm, I'm going to try one of the Chief's fried bologna 'samwichs' (as they say in Chicago) this morning. I am remembering this morning that I am too old to stay up til 1 am anymore. But we had a nice pleasant evening - lots of Chinese food, a bad Orange bowl on TV and good company. Everyone ran Ivor and appreciated him. 

My goodness but it is cold out this morning - Kev is right...

Laz, Happy Birthday.Happy B-Day

Watched wife while she watched the parade, nothing much going on here today.  So guess I will spend the day in the train room,  Ahhhh I know.  Given how cold its been here, I can't believe all the snow is gone from the layout.  It has been there since 2013, October/November I think.  (Couldn't stand that long to take it down, now I was able to lean on stuff.)  Today going to continue the detail cleaning and need to take a few pictures. 

Train show this weekend in Pasadena, TTOS, think I will probably go.  Don't know why don't need anything but will enjoy seeing some people and just looking, also I like watching the auction.

Hope everyone has a great day!  And, enjoy the week-end!

Happy New Year!!!!!!

Guys it has ben a while since I posted. Just a bit busy and it is easy to say I will post later. Doray has been sick since Christmas Morning but is on the mend now. All in all The Holidays have been good. Doray really surprised me Christmas with a pristine 1950, 773 Hudson with the correct 2426W Tender. She got it with the help of her brother Ray, aka AF53.

Granddaughter Kali just turned 8 months old and is doing great. We watch her every day as my daughter and son in law go to work. She loves the trains.

My son John, aka Johnsson, is doing well at the Police Academy and graduates Tuesday, 1/13.

Jon: Congrats on your Granddaughter!

Kev: Hope Lexi heals fast.

Brent: Get Well Soon!

Laz: Happy Birthday! Happy B-Day

Everyone: A Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!

Think York!!!! Yes, Fife, there will be Ice Cream!

Happy New Year all!

We're home alone all day since youngest son is out all day with girlfriend.  They went to the Rose Parade this morning. It was 32 here in Glendora this AM.  Got a glimpse of the B2 bomber after it flew over the Rose Parade but turned North before it got near our house. Older son coming over tonight.  Invited himself for dinner.  I'm hoping I can find a place open to eat out.  I don't want to cook.

Wife had some anxious moments yesteday but she seems better today.  Her situation is a constant worry now.

Don, I might try to make that TTOS meeting Sunday if I can but might bring Helen with me since all my back ups have disappeared.

Looked at latest TCA Bulletin today about the upcoming convention in N.Y.  Looks like one of the best ones yet.  Lots of tours to famous places.  Wish I could go.

Happy birthday Laz!Happy B-Day

Hudson - Wow, a 773?!!  You certainly rate in your household.  Are we sure the Mrs isn't feeling the ill-affects of the price when Ray told her...? Laugh  Seems like only yesterday that John-son started the academy.  He's a-comin' and I'm a-goin'.
