    Johnny, Willie, IBKen, and others - Lots of good pictures and progress today. As PHIL would say: "Thanks for posting those!" Get your tickets while there is still seats available for the Impeachment hearing of the Century! Should be quite a circus? We don't like this guy - Let's get rid of...

    NOT in any means putting your current work down, but I think the "mockup" had more character. I do realize the space which was needed for it. An excellent work of detail though on the new one.

    Thanks a bunch, GREG -- Just filled up my truck at Costco, cheapest anywhere, for $3.59 yesterday! I guess I will save the difference in home heating costs?

    Good Morning - I thought that lady fainted from seeing the latest gasoline prices? I'll try and slip this by you shivering guys ... Supposed to be 85* today (was 83* yesterday). The record high for this date is 92* in 1999. I may have to switch from coffee to iced tea! Off to get the oil...

    Morning from the West where it is 44* and calm heading only up to 80* this afternoon. Flash: Still no snow in sight! Have to make a run to the A/P down in San Diego to gather the Spousal Unit who is returning from her week back in North Carolina. I have not heard if she has made it onto the...

    OK, see]ms we set a new record for the high temp yesterday of 90 degrees. The high today is only expected to reach 82* I might add that there is very little chance of snow for the next 10 days as well as slim chance of any moisture what-so-ever! Guess that I can leave the snow shovel packed...

    Awesome looking, JIM. I didn't think you wanted me to stop the other morning - it would have been around 5 AM as I dropped the Spousal Unit off at the A/P for a 6 AM departure. No excuse - I should have called you. I have to pick her up Monday evening ... I have not been told the flight nor...

    I probably won't follow it ... just became very disenchanted over the way he left!

    Willie: That is exactly what I had in mind for the barn scene - well done! Alan: A very nice line-up of SP steam power. Which is your favorite - I know, I know - you like them all! TOM/LEE - When did the Autocar brand disappear? Someone buy them out, or did they just quit?

    Morning - guess everyone's sleeping in today trying to stay warm - I'll let you have some of our heat! It's 50* on the way to 89* high today with a clear (choke) sky. The record high for this date is 88* in 2016, so it looks as if a new record will be made today. Daughter is back home - doped...

    LEE - Glad you liked the photo. Interesting that you are familiar with the location. Your tractor - the Autocar - is a real gem. What year is it? I'm sorry to hear that you are selling it, but believe me I understand.

    OK // I'm up after staying up too late last evening. If you guys will stop complaining - I will share some of the 89 degree temperatures that we are forecast today! It's 48* as we speak with the record low on this date being 36* in 2000. The daughter is probably being wheeled into surgery...

    One of the curses of (ahem) aging, GREG. I cannot walk much more than 1/2 mile before my hip starts hurting, and my leg just almost collapses. A real bitch when taking the dogs out for a walk. Some days are better than others. Steve alerts me with his weathering photos - that SOO cab is awesome!

    The P/U is still behaving? What gives? It starts as soon as the key is turned, and has not sputtered at all. Johnny -- Man, you gotta do something about that HW crossing? Have never seen one that looked like that - LOL. Willie -- Cool scene of the guy getting a ticket! The city will have...
