    Good morning everyone. 73 and sunny out my window. Still working to earn money for this weekend's train show. Terry - Hope all is well in your area as you recover from the hurricane. I understand inland river flooding is going to be a real problem for a while. Stay safe. Chet - If you head in...

    Garry - the dinner train in Bardstown sounds interesting. Might be motivation for a road trip some time. Probably not this year though. Thanks for posting the photos and for the tip about this one.

    Good morning everyone. 67 and sunny here. My wife and I had a weekend "getaway" in Branson this weekend at our favorite B&B. Drove down Friday afternoon, spent the evening shopping, went to Silver Dollar City (great tourist attraction) most of Saturday, and took in a show (The Haygoods, a...

    Good morning everyone. 67 and clear out there. Weather here is gorgeous for the next several days, partly because of Hurricane Florence. Prayers for Terry and all those on the east cost affected by the path of this event. Nothing to report from the train room. Spent the evening working on...

    Good morning everyone. 67 and sunny outside my window. Prayers and thoughts for all those in hurricane Florence's path. I'm sitting here with a cup of hot mocha with chocolate creamer - - doesn't get much better than this. Can't ever get too much chocolate! Here's a photo of that DPM structure...

    Good morning everyone. 61 and clear out my window. Terry - I see all the talk about trees coming down. 11 years ago we lived elsewhere near here, on 3.5 acres. That January (2007) we had an ice storm that brought down 32 trees on our property - may have been more than that, but that's what I...

    Good morning everyone. Nice cool 60 and clear outside. Several days of nice weather coming our way. That hurricane on the east coast actually makes our weather nicer here, but prayers for the folks on the Carolina and Virginia coasts. Terry - Great news about your wife's improvement. Hope you...

    Good morning everyone. 71 and cloudy. An overnight downpour left a little over a quarter inch of rain in our gauge. Rain today and tomorrow, then clearing up. This bathroom remodel is neverending. Forget my comment yesterday about seeing a light at the end of the tunnel - it could indeed be an...

    Getting hosed!

    Aerojet - Ian gave the link to a thread I started some months ago. I just posted a photo there after I finally made some hoses for my firehouse. Here is that photo: I used a thin solder, pounded it flat with a hammer, opened up the ends a bit (to look like couplings), and painted it, although...

    Homemade Fire Hoses?

    I appreciate all the comments that you guys made. Forgot to post a photo of the hoses I made. I used solder - would have to look at the roll to see what size it was, but rather thin solder - pounded it with a hammer, opened up the two ends just a bit (to look like couplings), painted it a light...
