Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Partly sunny, with a high near 72.

Karl, sorry about hitting the deer but glad no one was hurt.

Larry and Tom, there seems to be some good news about a vaccine.

Philip, you retired yet?

Mike, I never take sports too seriously or else I wouldn't have stuck with the Skins and Jets this long.

Tom, congrats on the sale.

Jerry, hope things went well at the cardio doc.

I've been very lucky having all these days off when the weather has been spectacular.
Got one or two outside things I want to get done.
Rest of the day is mine and the dogs.

I did get another day job.

Have a great day everyone.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee.
Glad you found another day job!

Weather in South Jersey sunny/46. Later on 72.
Were heading to Lancaster Pa. for the day with friends for lunch.

Cardio was okay added to my BP medicine and I have to go have two tests done in January.
There no big deal just a monitor to wear for three days and a electrocardiogram.

I did manage to do some battens yester. Good God there is so many of them to do.

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. Congrats on day job. BTW, I am like you sports, but I do like the teams to win once in a while.

Another fine day on the Brazos. It is 65F now, headed to 75F.

I have enough wood saved for several projects, but I did want to start on daughter's Stickly plant stand. Let's see, what can I make with box store white wood...

Have fun and stay safe,
mike

Good morning and thanks Rick for getting today moving.

Today I plan to again start building the 12 grain bins I have for the new facility. Some track is tacked down where the buildings will go and is ready for testing. I have to cut more cork for the road bed and hook it up to the mainline that is about 20’ away. Terry pointed out I still have room in the space for a fertilizer building. Not sure about that. I am out of wood for more frame building and no foam left. I want to play with a lightweight module but have to get by the why issue.

Have a great day
TomO

Morning Gents,

If anyone was offended by my comments yesterday I do apologize; that was not my intention.

Have a great day and be well.

No offense taken, nor warranted.

In and out light precipitation in our travels today. 46 in Manistique at departure and 75 along US-127 N of Lansing. 90% of the orange barrels have been picked up and traffic has been light. We were only ones at the restaurant at the Bridge for 30 minutes.

We’ll be home in an hour or so. We’re going to enjoy the last day of warm stuff, high tomorrow mid 40s.

Be well everyone.

No protests on my part with what you wrote. Still a free country.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

A chance of showers and thunderstorms, then showers likely and possibly a thunderstorm after 3pm. Otherwise, cloudy, with a high near 74.

Karl, hope you made it home safely.

Tom, glad you're able to get back to working on the layout.

Mike, when I win the lottery I'll have a whole house of Stickley furniture.

Jerry, good news on the cardio.

Grocery shopping and meal prep day.
I think I'll do a short easy ride on the bike.
Haven't done a ride in almost three weeks.

Have a great day everyone.

11-11, Veteran’s Day. A silent prayer of thanks to those past and present that have given to the benefit of our nation. Never to be forgotten.

Yesterday was the 45th anniversary of the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Prayers for those lost.

Home, safe and sound. 75 degrees at the time we arrived. A narrow fast moving wet and noisy line of stormy ness passed thru 10:40 last evening with a rapid cool off right behind it. 45 if we’re lucky today.

Today will be a chill out, other than sliding by the body shop with the truck, no plans. Bills to pay... I may also work on some photos, maybe post a shot or two.

Everyone have a good day.

It's cool out this morning at 42F, but high forecast for 75F this afternoon. Sunny.

Have fun and be safe,

Happy Veterans day to all who served.
Thank you and God bless and keep you
far from any more harm.

Rain and gusty winds all day yesterday all my leaves are down now so the next clean up should be the last.

That coffee sounds like just the thing today Rick!

34 now with a high of only 43 in Green Bay today, a big cruel swing from the mid 60's and lower 70's we had for this last week. Back to reality.

Morning everyone

Happy Veteran's Day!!

Rick thanks for the coffee.

Dave glad to see you joining in!

Karl glad you made it home safely.

I hope the rest of you are all safe and sound.

Weather wise rain this afternoon 74.

Could be a good day to apply battens. And stain 2x12 for the Mill.
Hopefully a picture next week of some progress.

Everyone have a great day!!

Nightcap boys!

Ventured out today for more provisions. Yes I retired in mid March Rick.

Looks like cooler weather is on the way.

Not much happening on the home front. Gena made dinner Sunday, believe me a pleasant surprise!

Have a great evening!

Philip

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Showers, mainly before 3pm. Temperature falling to around 52 by 5pm.

Got to keep it brief this morning because I'm running a little late.
Back to work today.

Have a great day everyone.
