Good evening, everyone.

I'm sitting here coughing, hoping to distract myself from how I feel.

I've got Turner Classic Movies on TV which is showing "The Wizard of Oz".  I didn't like the movie when I was younger, but with big screen TVs, I've gotten to enjoy it.  The filming and the sets are great.

The most memorable scene from childhood for me was when Dorothy opens the farmhouse door in the tornado and the door goes flying away.  Not sure why, but I remember that scene the most.

This is the Bayshore roundhouse in San Francisco.

Chloe, bring me a slice of strawberry pie, and I will just sit in here all alone and enjoy it for a spell.

 

I'll join you, but I'd prefer just a bowl of ice cream for dessert.

Judy took me to The Wizard of Oz 3D in the theater about 5 years ago, and it was like reliving our childhood all over again.

That movie was super spooky when we were little Kids.  Not only the Witch, but her flock of Flying Monkeys, .... Terrifying back thenLaugh

Our most popular radio station up here said, you can cue Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon, at the same time you cue The Wizard of Oz, and both will go together in perfect sync.  Never tried itHuh?

I'll join you, but I'd prefer just a bowl of ice cream for dessert.

I'll join the both of you too, but can't have strawberries with seeds, and can't have ice cream with nutsCrying
 
I've tried all the ice creams John, and trust me, this is the best one of the whole lot.
 
 
It's dangerous though, cuz sometimes you can't quit eating it.  I'd categorize it as comparable to Turkish Delight, from The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, by CS LewisLaugh
 
 
 
 
I'll try that beer though Kevin, Thanks.  Certainly do prefer a decent, low carbonated dark beer at timesYes

TF, same brand, different flavor.

This has become my nightly ice cream before bed.  I'm about to dish some up in about an hour, if anyone wants to join me.

 

 

Brent, congratulations on your son's engagement.  It's a fun time getting ready for weddings.

Good evening diners.

Kevin, that is an excellent beer you have.  I'll take one.

TF, I'll have some of that ice cream after I finish my drink from Kevin.  I might argue with you about which one is best though.  We should probably settle it by taste testing all of them! Big Smile

Got the landing at the top of the stairs done tonight.  Getting closer.  Now I just need to do some trim work at the end of the one wall and I can mark the stairs off my list.

Update:  I see York John brought the Blue Bunny flavor I prefer.  At least I get to have two different ice creams tonight! Big SmileBig SmileBig Smile

Good afternoon from a soggy cool West Coast.

I just hit a wall from so much going on the last month and I am exhausted so I spent the day doing nothing. My daughter was home watching movies and we spent a lot of time sitting and watching superhero movies and just talking, it was actually a great day as we get along so well. She is going to Vancouver to get a tattoo on Sunday, it is just a tiny little thing, but whatever. One of our guests from the Czech Republic is going with her for site seeing reasons. I may drive them there as I need some MRR items from Central Hobbies. They can take transit home.

I see Deadpool 2 is playing, you will see my son a lot in that one in the icebox scenes. It is funny how often the TV will get flipped on and we will see him running across the screen in some TV show or movie.

Thanks for the congrats on the sons' engagement. They get home tomorrow and the planning begins for the wedding. It will be interesting to see how that all unfolds. We want them to go off to some South Pacific Island and have a quiet little ceremony like we did. The sons' future MIL wants the whole nine yards, a big wedding and I hear the guest list is at 180 already. If I have to step inside a church I'll burst into flames.Smile, Wink & GrinLaugh

Picked up the guitar finally and played for three hours, the fingers were working well today. Gord must have been having an influence from on high.

On Monday my son sent me a screenshot of a stock we had been following, he was laying by the pool in Mexico and asked if it was a buy. I said absolutely, he bought and sold today and his expensive engagement holiday is paid for. He is a chip off the old block except he is highly educated and I just squeezed through high school.Laugh He is already way ahead of where I was at that age. 

My daughter and I have been watching all the Star Trek movies in order. She has been writing fan fiction for years and wants to try her hand at the Star Trek franchise. She has almost 300,000 followers on fan fiction and has written a couple of novels. She won't submit them to a publisher for review, but the fact she has a good following with fan fiction says something about her writing ability. One good book made into a movie and she is set for life. I am not holding my breath as school and work is her main focus at this time.

I have a nice pour of good scotch and the wife has popped a couple of chickens in the oven. Hopefully, our guests are not too hungry as I am. I will usually eat a whole chicken myself. I will go for a long scoot tomorrow with a dog and need to fuel up!Laugh

Ray, here is another photo of a charging station from our trip. It is in a dirt pullout with a pit toilet. It may be 100s of km between some gas stations but if there is power in the area you can charge your car. It is very easy to install a charging station, however, the regulations for burying tanks and everything else for a gas station means they may be far and few between in the wilds.

I have tried it, not impressed at all, and it does not make the movie or the album better by doing it.

You can find instructions online for exactly when the start DSOM. The movie starts first, then you hit play on DSOM at the right place

Only some of the sound effects in DSOM align with what is happening on the screen. The music does nothing for the movie.

I will have some.

We have a couple of stores down here that carry Blue Bunny, but I have never seen Pistacio Almond or Peanut Butter Party.

I might argue with you about which one is best though.  We should probably settle it by taste testing all of them!

My favorite ice cream right now is Edy's Butter Pecan. 

There used to be a premium brand that sold a Butter Pecan in pints like Ben & Jerry's, but I can't find it anywhere now.

When I used to go to Indiana for work, I would get Turkey Hill brand Butter Pecan ice cream. That was good stuff.

My daughter and I have been watching all the Star Trek movies in order.

The only one of the Shatner movies I enjoyed was #4, but they were all so boring. I did not like any of the Patrick Stewart movies, but I never cared for Next Generation either. The Chris Pine movies were good, but not good enough for a rewatch.

If only there were some DS9 movies... still hoping...

Good morning diners.  Chloe, I see there is still ice cream left from last night.  I'll have a bowl for breakfast.

Picking up our grocery order in a bit.  Loaded it up with snacks for the kids tonight.  With my luck, they won't eat any of it.  Eh, unlikely.

Supposed to be a nice day today.  Trying to decide which project I tackle.

Later guys.

Good morning, diners.  I'll shake up the continuum this morning -- I'll have potatoes O'Brien, with lots of sausage added in.  Cover it with hot sauce and salt.

Kevin ... I didn't know there was another someone in the diner.  I'm a DS9 fanatic and have been waiting for someone to do a movie.  The problem is the actors that I want to see in the parts are now so old, I would probably be disappointed.

Several years ago, one of our cable channels put DS9 on six nights a week, with the shows in order.  I'm on my third time through the series in order.  I like it better this way than streaming the episodes one after another.

My biggest disappointment was when Jadzia Dax was killed.  That left a big hole for the last season.

Now that I've bored everyone with Star Trek talk, how about a roundhouse?

I thought this one was interesting with all the tall chimneys:

 

 

Have a great Saturday, everyone.

It has been a week since the wargaming convention, and my wife is still talking about what a great time she had. It never occurred to me that she has never attended a wargaming event with me. She has been to countless train events, but wargaming I did with the daughters.

She says she understands why they always wanted to come along now.

I hope my wife will become my new wargaming buddy.

Here is my dream... A three movie prequel of DS9 showing 1) The invasion of Bajor by the Cardassians, the ruin of the culture, enslavement of the people, birth of the resistance, and robbery of resources. This should all be from the Cardassian point of view inspired by the edisode Duet. 2) The construction of Tarok Nor and the rise of the Bajoran resistance. 3) The defeat of the Cardassians and the forming of the alliance with the Federation of Planets.

The only characters that would need to be recast are Garak, Gul Dukat, and Major Kira.

Oh to dream.

Good morning

Just finished Saturday morning brunch.  She made those cheese omlets in a bag that always turn out so good, and cheesy hashbrowns.  We like our fresh Wisconsin cheese up hereDinner

I'll have to let that settle before participating in the ice cream taste testing event with MikeLaugh  Honestly, I've never tried John's Peanut Butter Party favorite.  I've always liked Reese's, and also vanilla ice cream, so I'll have to have Judy pick me up a tub, and check that out.

Congrats on your sons engagement Brent.  The Wedding certainly will be an enjoyable family event.  That's cool he's had parts in some moviesYes

My pet mallard seems to be doing better, as he started limping on his crooked leg now.  He's been hanging out with some other drake's, that seem to be looking after him.  Perhaps the hens are nesting now.

Haven't had any time for modeling lately, but always enjoy seeing everyone else's around here, and also enjoy all the roundhouse's, Thanks.

 

Have a great Saturday everyoneSmile

Good Afternoon,

Feeling rather tired as I was up at 3:30 to watch the Coronation. A very impressive event. 

No plans for today as I don't have any energy. 

TF, we have a pair of mallards visiting our yard the last few days but will have to chase them off as water fowl as major spreaders of avian flu. 

We are having smoked salmon and cream cheese sandwiches later as part of our Coronation celebration. Apparently they were a favourite of the late Queen.

Good morning from the soggy edge of the Salish Sea. Sunny and warm starting tomorrow and for the foreseeable future. We already have 61 fires burning in the Province so the moisture is welcome. 

I was just heading out the door for a quick 10km with my buddy through the woodland and got intercepted by the wife and our guests from the Czech Republic, they wanted to come. So I ended up only doing 3.81 km and we moved so slow it did not even register as exercise on my Garmin.Laugh Oh well we had a nice time.

I love Star Trek and have to agree that DS9 has the most meat on the bones. Thinking about it I would bet my daughter would find it more interesting as well. I was so immersed in work from early 1987 until 1998 that watching TV just did not happen so I watched very few episodes of DS9. I just watched the first two on Crave last week and it is like I have never seen it.Big Smile

My son is at the airport in Mexico waiting to come home and took a photo of two very large bottles of booze he is bringing me.Laugh He is flying into an airport East of Vancouver so it is me picking them up and driving them home. Three hours of hockey playoffs are being missed.GrumpyLaugh

Thanks, TF. He is on IMDB and the list is fairly long of all the things he has been in. The novelty wore off after a while as it was just a job and there are a lot of things he was in that we still have never seen. People still will comment and will tell us they saw him in something they were watching. He worked the last year of high school and through University, made a ton of money, and lived like a King through University.

We have a streetlight out front as we are at the end of the road. The next light is too far away to see. Our light burned out two days ago and walking down to the road you could not see your hand in front of your face. We are not going to phone the city as the stars are so amazing with that light out, we love it. I hope we stay in the dark for a while. We have huge flood lights we can turn on if needed.

RH at Field BC, where I ran into the boys from Rapido on our recent trip.

All the best to all.

I'm lost today.  Never heard of DS9, potatoes O'Brian and I'm watching Nascar and Michael Waltrip has a haircut like Kim Jon Un. 

I started out planting one tomato plant today and ended up putting them all in the ground, plus peppers, cucumber, squash plants, beans, more radish seeds and some flower seeds in various places around the house.  My neighbor gardners tell me I'm a week or two early as we still could get frost.

I just mowed the lawn Tuesday and it looks like it needs it again! 

I saw bits and pieces to the Coronation.  Charles looks older than the 3 years he has on me.  He only wears that crown once and then it goes back to the Tower.  The golden carriage was built by George III and weighs 8,000#.   I did not see Harry. 

Beagle Bella is noseing me for her afternoon walk. 

This is one of two remaining roundhouses at Martinsburg.  I don't know much about the history but it was probably busy and dangerous place in the Civil War.

Here's another view of the Martinsburg roundhouse. 

 BandO_Martinsburg_WV by Edmund, on Flickr

I had always wanted to do that simplified B&O paint job on an E8 or two. I saw recently that Walthers is finally offering a version of those available toward the end of the year. Maybe I'll save up for a pair, as if I really need any more E8s Whistling

Just got off the Deere after the first cutting of the season. Ground is soggy and there's more rain due tomorrow so I thought I had better trim the weeds.

Glad all the treats and ice cream being offered here are virtual! I've got to trim a few pounds before the end of June. The 'ol prostate has to get extracted then Huh?

The LS & MS (NYC RR) roundhouse in Ashtabula, Ohio about forty miles from me:

Evening

Was hoping for the best, and of course, remembering to include you in our prayers.  I'm so sorry to hear about that Ed.  You're a good Friend here.

You should go ahead and pre-order that pair of E8's due at the end of the year.  It's always so rewarding to have something to look forward toYes

I've been behaving myself for quite a long time, but then made a rather large purchase last night.  It's the second and final run of a limited series of the last road numbers. 

They certainly sold out quickly on the first run.  Pulled the ripcord last night, not to watch them dwindle away and have regrets again.  I'll be posting these beauties when they arrive.

Speaking of memories,
 
Ashtabula cranks were the best cranks that ever hit the BMX Market in the mid 70s.  All the Kids in my neighborhood, and up at the lake had Ashtabula cranks and forks on their BMX bikes, cuz they were the best..... Indestructible!
 
We were extremely hard on our equipment flying off cliff jumps, and nobody ever managed to break them.
 
Up-til now, had no idea my favorite cranks were made and named after a town in Ohio, 40 miles from youWhistling

I'm lost today.  Never heard of DS9, potatoes O'Brian and I'm watching Nascar and Michael Waltrip has a haircut like Kim Jon Un. 

Until a few years ago, I had never heard of potatoes O'Brien.  I just cut up potatoes, onions, and peppers, mixed them all together, and fried them.  Then one day I was in the store and saw frozen potatoes O'Brien, with a package picture of potatoes, onion, and peppers.

I add sausage and fry it in bacon grease, cover it with hot sauce, and it makes a great breakfast.

 

Have a good evening, everyone.  Early morning for me tomorrow.

Good afternoon Diners.  A large glass of lemon and lime please, Brunhilda.

After yesterday's 'Coronation Party' with friends and family a day of taking things easy.  Just clearing away the games we played with the grandchildren.  The 'Jenga' and 'Bowls' were a success.  Our daughter did face painting  on the grandchildren.

Never heard of DS9

Deep Space Nine was the Star Trek show that was nothing like Star Trek. The prime directive meant nothing out there.

It was a gritty show with very well developed characters that had large arcs over the shows seven seasons. The show also told the whole story with an excellent ending. It is one of the best television shows I know of.

Thanks, TF!

Yes, I do have some fond memories of that scene in Ashtabula. I used to ride along on Penn Central freights with a friend who was a brakeman. He was called on an eastbound out of Collinwood to Buffalo and the train had to make a setout and pickup at the Ashtabula yard which was in the lower-left of that aerial photo.

Everyone else in the crew was on the ground and I was with the engineer in the cab of the lead F7 when he said "I'm going to the 'can'. When the yardmaster tells you you can shove back, take it easy, since there's some bad track back there". A minute or two later the radio crackles "Head end ONF8, you can shove back and watch for hand signals". I clicked twice on the mike button but didn't say anything, fearing I was going to give myself away, then released the independent and notched 'er up. I barely moved at a crawl but there I was, hanging out the cab window shoving back with about forty cars in a yard I had no idea where the other end was going! I passed my friend on the ground and he did a double-take seeing me leaning out the window.

I saw the other brakeman do a slow to a stop signal and brought everything to a stop. Someone else made a cut then I got a 'go ahead' and started to move forward when the engineer reappeared and said I'd done a good job 'kid'.

Oh, it was a different time back then. I was fourteen and didn't even have a drivers licence!

I didn't know that about Ashtabula cranks. Kind of like Windsor or Cleveland Ford engines?

CNCharlie
Is it laproscopic? 

Thanks for the support, Charlie. Yes, I have a date with the robot surgeon at the end of June. Amazing things they can do with those machines.
