Well the Open House was a hugh success. Tons of people were there. [:D] [;)] [:D]

One thing really stood out to me. Now I am not trying to pick on GE but (lol) most of the engines being overhauled there were GEs. [}:)] [:p] [:)] I wonder if that is why the specially painted engine for North Little Rock's Celebration was an EMD? [:D]

They wouldn't let you go up in the cab of any locos. [:(] [V] I have never been in a wide cab and was crossing my fingers that I would get to see inside one.

When we took the school bus tour through the yard I tried to take some pics. I am not sure how they will turn out as the road was bumpy and the driver was driving kind of fast. I saw a good mix of engines from other railroads and a bunch of leased units. There were a bunch of leased units with the UP name and number with a white line through them and the leasing company's name on them. What I don't understand about that is why? If there is a power shortage why is UP selling locos? I saw a CN unit and some ex Conrail units now owned by a leasing company. There was a NS GE unit being overhauled and some older SP units that were also GE. The CN unit and the ex Conrail units were in the yard and not being worked on. They were being serviced and readied for pulling a train.

Since we're on the subject of burgers, Sedalia MO (my town) is home to the world famous Wheel In Drive In, home of the Guber Burger since 1930. Yes, you guessed it, a Guber Burger is a burger with peabut butter on it. Believe it or not, they're pretty good, but I prefer their regular double cheeze burger basket myself. If you're ever in west-centryal MO, it is worth a couple extra miles for a Wheel In burger.

While cooking, don't press down on the burger too much, it squeezes all the good juices out. Follow this and guaranteed success will be yours.



Don't forget the slice of dill pickle.

You used to get all that with fries, and sometimes a bit of cole slaw when I was a kid. They called it a hamburger deluxe.

Hunter - When we met in January of 2000, you were just a 6 week old pup who walked his way into this heart of mine as the only runt in the litter who would come over to me. And today, I sit here and tell you I am sorry we had to put you down. It was the best thing for you and also the right thing to do. May you now rest in peace and comfort. Love, Dad. 8 June 2010

I love you and miss you Mom. Say hi to everyone up there for me. Rest in peace and comfort. Love, John. 29 March 2017

This string gave me an idea for a mini-scene on my layout....a coffee shop full of model railroaders chewing the fat, showing off photographs, admiring new models, turning up their noses at old ones. A waitress is trying to take orders but everybody is too busy chatting....

BTW: [zzz] while have feverish dreams last night I found out a system to add a subwoofer to a locomotive with onboard sound, gonna try that out as soon as my Lionell Veranda arrives, and keep you all informed [D)][{(-_-)}]

Morning, Afternoon, Evening all....which ever one is applicable to your location. (Lunchtime for me :-) ) I'll take a Pepsi, 2 Cheeseburgers w/ lettuce, onion and ketchup, and by change, do you cook your fries the way Mickey D's does? cause if so, I'll take a large order of them as well. And for desert.... one of those "super" 5-scoop sundaes that you get at Friendly's with all 5 scoops being Mint Choco. Chip, Hot Fudge, Nuts, Whip Cream and the Cherry to boot as well!

Kevin, I swear I'm considering starting "Mookie's Cafe" there. I think it would help a lot!!![swg]

Fergie and Lupo, no need to apologize, I figured there was something going on in your lives that was preventing you from hanging out here. It happens, just not very often to me.[;)]

howdy doody all, feel like a grilled hamburger right now, and maybe a rootbeer. So how's your favorite sports team doing. For me its the Brewers. they ain't doing to shabby, considering how there last season was. I thought they'd done themselves in when they traded Richie Sexton, but its working out better then before. with Jr. Spivy and the rest that they got in the trade, they've scored more runs than Richie has so far. No sir, they ain't doing to bad....

Good Mornin' Everyone,
I'd like a cup of coffe and a danish please. It's about 8:00 AM east coast time, and it's about 40 degrees on the front porch here in the north Georgia mountains. So I'm waiting a little while before I go out to start the day's project. I've got a small tree about 40' tall to take down. That will open up our view of the mountains considerably. It's not a bad tree, it's just in the wrong place so it will get converted into firewood.

After that's done it's down to the railroad room. I'll get the revised roadbed fastened to the risers today on the section that runs from Andrews NC up to Topton, on the summit of Red Marble mountain and down the other side to Nantahala. That's going to be fun.
Hope everybody has a great day today,
Tom Watkins

I am having one of those "need more coffee" days. Of course I seem to have a lot of them. [:(]

But the sun is out and it is a very nice morning. Too bad I have to spoil this day and go to work this afternoon. Hey, why can't we American have a national holiday on Cinco De Mayo day. We can play really bad polka music and sit in the yard all day too. [}:)] [:p] [;)]
