Good morning Crew. The coffee is ready, Ashpit Blend and the decaf cups are next to the K-cup maker. Breakfast tacos, fresh fruit and hot water for Walt.

It is warm and humid in Austin but I have spend almost an hour in the pool already. Swimming laps is something I have not done in 40 years since diving lessons. It is tough but easier on the joints then the walking I do daily.

Hope all have a great day, Jim and Donna are searching for bridges on the way to KC, so romantic, and Bruce and Bonnie love those B&Bís. Be safe traveling.

Good morning Tom and the rest of the crew. It will be another hot one in Kansas City.

I'm off to a day of meetings with the Board of Directors. This evening we will take to our cars and eat together (at our own expense) at a local BBQ place. After that we will visit the layout of Stephen and Cinthia Priest.

Have a great day!

Good morning, Tom and crew. We're having swimming pool weather here in Tidewater Virginia, too. We're been invited to a friends house for a pool party this afternoon. I hope the weatherman cooperates - there's rain in the forecast.

Have a good day.

Shockingly, it's not raining......but it way to wet out to do very much unless you like slogging about in swamp land.

One of lighting fixtures over the layout failed late yesterday, so now I get the test out just how accessible I installed everything and whether I can replace it with one of the new LED units that I've been holding in reserve for just this event.

To act in the world is the only way to understand it. In this life it is given only to God and his angels and poets to be lookers-on.

Good afternoon all. No bridges today, but we did stop at the National Transportation Museum just west of St. Louis (that volunteered about 30 years ago roofing the steel sheds. Hot then, hot today! I ran into 3 guys from our North Central Region that are also heading to the Convention. They know Karl from Andy Keeny's Op sessions and other nefarious events.

Took a bunch of pictures there, but again, everything is packed together quite tight. One of the old-timers asked if I was interested in doing some more sheet metal roofing. My glaring look stopped that line of questioning. 98 in the shade.

We're done for the day, and about a hundred miles tomorrow morning. Hope we can get through registration earlier than later.

Heading out to get a Burrito or something.
