Good morning all from cold 23f and clear N.E.Indiana. The coffee urn is READY with Boilermaker blend today. The special is an egg, cheese, and sausage patty bagel. Hot chocolate and all other beverages along with the oatmeal pot at the end of the line. Watch your social distancing in that line. You may remove your mask while eating. Saw some good news on the vaccines.I'm ready!

Yesterday, I got wrapped up in a little build project that was a lot of fun. A couple of baggage carts. Today, I'm running down South to see what progress a buddy has made on his layout since his new furnace went in. Switched from geothermal to propane. His geothermal system was 20 years old and took a dive. The new furnace is about a fourth the size of the old system. Recovered some basement railroad real estate in a hurry.

The story History Center is closed this weekend, so that task is off the list.

Have a safe and Super day!

Take the red pill

Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is 25 degrees under sunny skies here in S.E. Michigan. We will reach the low 40's later today.

An emergency trip down to JoAnn's this morning for some kind of drapery hook things. A stop at the grocery store on the way home. That is about all the excitement for today.

Have a great day!

Good morning, Jim and crew. We're going to be squeaking into the 60's later today, so I'll wait till late morning for my bike ride.

I started working on my cassettes. I'm having to make some changes to the edge of the layout because of poor planning. I'm learning as I go.

Have a good day.

I finished one drywall seam but for the sanding and am well along the way on the other one. I painted sky on my backdrops and might do land today. Van Gogh I am not, but Iím getting the effect I want.

Have a great day everyone!

Morning Jim and incoming crew. Cool 37F and sunny in up state New York.

Quick run to the post office for stamps and then to the grocery store for milk with the other half. Then it's trash day. The local transfer station is open and I need to get rid of some of the accumulated trash that was cleaned up from the 1:1 projects I did.

The order is in to Smooth-On for silicone rubber for the molds and Amazon for the 3M Adhesive tape for the rock crusher. Now it's a waiting game for the materials to come. The last mold was finished yesterday. Now ready for the molding rubber when it arrives.

Have a nice day everybody and stay safe.

The skill in drywall taping is in how -little- you do :-) Despite lots of practice, I never got to the "tape, mud, sand twice" point. It was more like "tape, mud, sand, more mud, sand, sand, touch up some mud, sand, sand." :-(

I hear that, Dave. Iím still finding dust from drywalling my layout room a dozen years ago. Even the pro doing our cottage has a bit of dust around but his work is terrific, if $$.

68 degrees and clear in San Bernardino CA

Moving the log dump to a different area. Nothing fancy; just a simple Jill poke to push logs off the cars. The move will free up some room for additional dual gauge trackage.

Making a little (very little) progress on a scratch built mail/express car.
