I noticed that, too! I wondered what Lion was trying to do changing someone's quote to be about dead Yanks!

  

Sorry -- I didn't mean to imply that you changed anything.  I thought it was funny that the forum software changed the 'dead' emoticon into the word "dead" in the quote.

I actually was reading the posts in reverse order, so I read your post with the quote before I read the actual post, and I was trying to figure out what that quote meant.

Funny stuff!

Nor did I wish to imply anything ne-fur-ious on your part, LION.  I tapped the "dead" emoticon before waiting the half-second for its title to appear.  Should have grabbed the "ick" - Ick!.  I suspected it was the programming.  But now I wonder if I've needlessly needled David.  Nah, he's a grand sport.  Besides, I too would be inclined to drop by his place just before din. Dinner

Bear is where?  What would happen if we resurrected the "Where's Kevin" string that mysteriously disappeared?  Can CATS find BEARS?

Hi guys,

I have been feeling just a bit under the weather today. I am going to take a hot shower and crawl into bed early tonight.

Good morning Diners.   A large coffee on the go please, Janie.

 

Attuvian1

  But now I wonder if I've needlessly needled David. ---- 

John  

 

Confused

Not me John.    Not sure where you got the idea.

 

Anyway.   Dawn has had some treatment and is somewhat better than before.  

 

Going to see family today.  Will try to call in later.

 

Stay Safe Everyone.

They look really good Lion!!

I don't know how others feel about this, but sometimes seeing the virtual food in the Diner can be very frustrating for me!!!

I just arranged to get my sugar fix that should keep me happy for the next few weeks. We often purchase items from an artisian distillery in Perth, Ontario by the name of Top Shelf Distillers. They have a variety of unusual offerings. One of my favourites is their Butter Tart Moonshine. It is sweet but not cloying. It's not something that I would drink all night, but a shot of it is really nice after dinner.

They had a special offer on this past Friday. Free shipping, and they were offering a half dozen of their absolutely scrumptious butter tarts for peanuts with the purchase. Okay, I need butter tarts like another hole in the head, but I couldn't resist!DinnerThumbs UpWowYeah

They also have an excellent line of bitters.

I don't know if they can export to the USA.

Cheers!!

Good morning, everyone.

Lion, I'll skip the rolls right now.  It's donut day!  Our church has donuts and coffee after the service, so I'll miss my bacon and eggs today.  I guess I can survive one day a week without bacon.

I've got a busy day ahead, so there won't be any work on the layout.  That's probably just as well -- I have some things drying that could use an extra 24 hours to cure.

Hope everyone has a good day today, and I hope our missing posters are OK.

Good morning all. I just added a bagel with cream cheese to my order. Hopefully Chloe gets here with it soon.

I am up early (for me) this morning. I am feeling a little bit better than I did last night.

We had a little rain last night, but no where near what they had predicted. I guess I will still be watering for a while. The yard is all doing very well right now, and I want to keep it that way.

I hope everyone has an enjoyable Sunday.

Good evening Diners.

I read that a couple of you would 'call round'  for dinner (if you could).   All are invited,

 

Dinner  Steak is on the menu tonight.   Let me know how you like it?   I know Lion likes steak rare.   Smile

 

Bring your favourite drink.

Medium well on the steak please. 

We are in the middle of updating the "den" here at the Northern command.

 

we got a good report from the Southern command that we had no damage after severe weather last week.

There is a neighbor who goes and checks on things so we lucked out on that.  He had some damage but not too bad.

 

Well back to painting.

A good sign that our long-delayed spring is about to arrive: we saw a pair of egrets out in the tidal marsh this morning.  Egrets are migratory birds who went south months ago.  Unlike the herons that winter over, they just got back and joined us for breakfast, eating the traditional egret chow by catching small fish in the shallow water.  We typically have a community of about a dozen birds here in the summer.

I am still feeling just a touch under the weather. I have developed sniffles now.

I really hope I am not getting sick. I am miserable when I am sick.

Good morning Diners.  Tea and toast please, Zoe.

Rather quiet in the Diner.   Zoe  anyone calling in today put their drink on my tab.

We are having grandchildren vising throughout the week,  so the 'usual goings on'  will be different.  Smile

 

Take things easy, Kevin.

 

No Bear here.

Where is Bear  and the others who are missing?

Gidday Chloe, I’d better stand a round of liquid refreshment for the chaps, please. Make sure you get one for yourself.
 
Yes, I’m afraid that on discovering that the Where’s Kevin thread was deleted, which I had thought was a light hearted, and humorous way of keeping Kevin’s spirits up during his absence, I lost my sense of humour, and receiving no message as to the why fore, made me rather angry.
 
So, before I fired off an angry tirade, I thought it in the best interests of the Forum and myself, that I backed off for a cooling off period.

PPS. I’d rather there be no discussion regarding the missing thread; I’d just like to thank those that contributed.

Amtrak trains cannot use track 4. The lowest track they can access is track 5.

New Jersey Transit uses tracks 1-4 with push-pull or all electric mu units as these terminate against a will and cannot move east to Sunnyside Yard.

Hello diners.  

Bear, good to have you back.  I wondered if that wasn't what was going on.  An explanation would have been nice as to why that thread was vaporized.

Kevin must have caught that I was headed his way and knew I was ready to rough him up a bit if he didn't get his log-in straightened out! PirateLaugh   Good to have you back Kevin.

Family vacation went reasonably well.  I even got a chance to head over to Colonial Photo & Hobby in Orlando.  I hope what I saw was the result of the current supply chain problems.  Lots of empty shelf space.  That said, I did walk out of there with a few things, one of which I've been trying to get for about two years now.  As mail order is all that is available for me at home, I've been striking out on Woodland Scenics foam putty I want to try on a project I'm working on.  Every time I've had a big enough list to warrant paying the shipping charges on an order, nobody has had it in.  Colonial had one can of it.  Yes!  On top of that, they had the one other product I needed (WS cut stone retaining walls) for this current project too that I was ready to place an order for when we got home.  Winner winner chicken dinner!  AND, I found a fence that will be perfect in this same scene that I didn't even know was available.  I figured I would have to scratch build one.  It was amazing that with what little they had in stock, they had three critical pieces I needed.

I'll try to check back later.  Have a good day guys.

Mike

I will announce that I absolutely LOVED the "Where's Kevin" thread, and was delighted by the creativity of the pictures.

It was so frustrating to be able to follow the threads but not be able to participate.

My spirits were very much improved by that thread.

Maybe we should get you a red and white striped shirt and hat for x-mas? :D

BTW: Good morning all.  Just coffee for me today.  I have to get used to starving.  The company is making me go back into the office starting tomorrow.  I'm a little sad.  When I got frustrated with engineering/coding I would often pick up a model and work on it for a short time, or see my kids.  Can't do that now.

Good morning, everyone.

I'm a little late today -- I took a friend out for breakfast and spent a long time talking.

When my daughters were young, this was their favorite book.  Thankfully, the Bear is back in the diner, and all is well again.  By the way, even though it was 40 years ago, I can still repeat this entire book's poetry -- that's how often we read it:

Welcome back, Bear!

 

The Omaha stockyards.  There were served by Union Pacific, Burlington, Rock Island, Chicago & North Western, and Wabash. There may have been others:

 

This is the Livestock Exchange Building from the photo.  Today, the stockyards are completely gone, but the building is now apartments:

 

 

Have a good day, everyone.

 We had favorite books when my daughter was young, too.  I noticed how the story at bedtime practice became an important nighttime ritual.  When the book was done, she drifted easily off to a good night's sleep.

We had a couple in town with two daughters.  We noticed there were no books in their house.  The parents also didn't celebrate Christmas in any way.  The parents divorced, and at least one of the girls was a problem.

So, thanks to all you Mom's and Dads who read to your children every night.

And, in the spirit of this month's thread, one of my daughter's favorite books was Sheep Out to Eat.

The upper windows, fatter fuselage, and shape of the middle vertical stabilizer seem to ID it as the initial version of the DC-4.

(Sorry for horning in, Bear.  BTW, I read this morning of an old gent in NZ that was permanently dealt with by a local court for flying without a current med certification.  Had put it off for decades as an incovenience.  Dude has made international news for his intransigence.)
