    Morning all! Coffee's brewing, water's hot. English muffins and pea-mealed bacon, eggs, oatmeal, and grits on the side.

    Got some finishing touches to take care of on my background flat, need to make it a dock across the length of the 12 doors, about an inch wide by 24" long. Just need to decide wood or concrete...

    Good morning, Al and crew. After being spoiled with temperatures in the 60's, we're back to a normal chilly February day here in Tidewater Virginia.

    I hope to finish the roof on my S-B-M project. I've been doing a lot of cutting, fitting and waiting for paint and glue to dry. I hope everyone is moving along on their projects.

    Have a good day.

    With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine.

      Good morning Al and the rest of the crew. Some oatmeal and coffee would hit the spot.

      We are back to cold weather here in the Jersey Highlands. We are supposed to stay below freezing for the next week or so with a few snow events in the forecast. Hopefully they will be on the light side.

      Our snow pack is down to about 13"-14" and is now solid enough that I saw three deer walking on top of it without breaking through.

      I am still working on my Challenge Project. On tap for today is adding the roof cap shingles on one roof, painting the chimney, and making up some steps for the front and rear doors.

      Have a great day!

        Good morning you guys!

        I think just a muffin for me today, I ate too much carp watching the race (delay) yesterday. Thanks Al!

        Well it is cooler this morning but we aren't in the deep freeze yet.

        There were 4 state police cruisers at my neighbors house at 1:00 in the morning, wondering what that was all about...

        Well gotta get something done, even if it's wrong. Later gang!

          Good morning Al and crew I'll have some oatmeal and hot coffee, we are having a few snow flakes and getting colder again. Lots of little changes to make on the layout and I better get to it. Have a good day and play safe in the train yard. Tom

            Morning. Sun is out here in SE Mass. for the 3rd day in a row.

            Boy, is it difficult to throw away stuff I've saved for 50 years. Thought it might be worth something or someone would want it.....NOT!

            At least we'll have a couple of tons less to move.

            I wonder if Walt left for Florida yet. Hope he has good weather.

              Good morning all, it's about freezing on the NH Seacoast, but the sun is bright. I didn't do as much modeling as I should have yesterday, but I'll get some in today too. My 2nd oil delivery of the winter is set up for tomorrow, but I'll switch to wood later for what I expect will be the last week that's really cold enough for it.
