Starting the regimen of no Mondays for the rest of my life today (one more, the next to last day of work).  Have to review and sign retirment paperwork.

Mild (for winter) temps here in SE PA.  Maybe work outside for an hour or two. Back to the grind tomorrow.  My "replacement" starts today.

No apparent answer.  Perhaps some of the southern based vendors would hesitate to commit to travelling at the end of January to Springfield, but would be more comfortable going to  Baltimore a week later.

On the other hand, some of the New England vendors may not want to deal with the grind of consecutive weekends, especially with the possible Super Bowl appearance of the Patriots that second Sunday.

I recall attending a Timonium show on a Super Bowl Sunday in which the Ravens were one of the teams.  Opted to take US 1 north to go home and after 5, there was zero traffic until reaching the PA line.

Look on the Great Train Show website.  They usually list vendors who've signed up.

Easy day at work.  Very quiet.  Get to depart early.  Early evening dining planned with another couple.

Come tomorrow, but 13 weeks remain.

Back to the grind after six days of vacation.  Just in time for Christmas as they say. It was marvelous. 

99 days to go.

Cool Yule, Y'all.

Chilly, but sunny in SE PA.  120 days to go.  :D

All kind of build up for some snow around here, but last night, they pulled back on that and nothing happened.

Enjoy the day, everyone.  Came out of mass this morning and NS was blowing the horn approaching Black Rock tunnel (down the hill from the church).

Hitting 60 today in SE PA.  Other shoe dropping by Thanksgiving.

No milestones in the countdown today, but I do get stitches out from the Mohs on the Nose procedure.

70 work days remain now.

Medical visits finished this week (dentist, Mohs procedure, MRI/ankle).  Trying to get myself fixed before work insurance disappears next year. 

No ops this weekend.

Took some time off.  Heading to the DDS shortly to get drilled. 

Some progress in the layout area.  Moved shelving a few feet so allow the layout to move with it and widen the aisle between the legs (U-shaped).

Good morning.

It looks a lot like winter here, too.  No hunting or fishing on my schedule, though I am also working on layout design.  I've been struggling to squeeze an interchange and small yard into an 18" deep space.  I think I have it finally figured out, but it leaves no room for scenery.  Operation or scenery?  Decisions, decisions. 

JB: I've found if you're focused on operating the train, the scenery, or lack thereof,  is not noticed.
