  • Sunday Morning Lounge

    Good morning Crew on a not so nice Wisconsin Mother’s Day. Wet and cold with high winds, not a fun day.

    The coffee is the Pullman Porters blend, the k-cups are down the line as are the water and sodas. A small breakfast as we must assume all you guys are making brunch or dinner for the mother of your children. Sausage links, oatmeal raisin pancakes, good real and fake maple syrup. Today we have real silverware, do not toss in the garbage.

    Whatever the ladies want today they can have. Give her a hug, say thank you and enjoy your day.

    Good morning Tom and the rest of the crew. We have a little sunshine at the moment and it is 51 degrees. Some rain and falling temperatures will occur mid-afternoon.

    We will take our walk this morning and then I will get back to work on the Campbell Oil Derrick this afternoon.

    Have a great day!

      Sunny and 50 but rain and cold forecast for later. Waffles were the highlight of the day. The Doll and I enjoyed them even with the fake chemical goo we put on them. The fine feathered friends are entertaining at the back window, fat and fuzzy seems to be taking a break.

      I tinkered with drawing and printing yesterday, did some landscaping and made it through another day of disorder in life.

      12 hours to go until bed time.

      That oil derrick is becoming quite complex, Bruce. I was skimming through a book the Doll picked up on line about the history of our UP base of operations, Manistique. There is a photo in there of the basics of a drilling rig like yours that was being used for drilling water wells. It showed a derrick and mechanicals similar to the model but none of the building structure.

      Everyone have a good day. Safe and healthy, locked down in solitary. Another 3 weeks in the hole the warden said. In the 1970s our Sheriff at the time had ‘the hole’ , literally a 15’ square room Bare with Terrazzo floor and bench room with a 8-9” hole in the floor, pepto-bismol pink as it was supposed to calm down people in crisis. I might order a can of pink paint.

      Happy Mother’s Day to the ladies in our lives.

        Good afternoon, Tom and crew. We've been doing yardwork this morning. We're heading into the 60's this afternoon - good weather for a walk. That's awfully cool for Tidewater Virginia.

        I'm planning to work on my swaybacks this afternoon. For some reason the project is going very slow.

        Have a good day.

        With sufficient thrust pigs fly just fine.

          Well still morning in Wisconsin on May 10th and the WGFA are falling and the flakes are quite big. Thankfully they melt when they hit the ground.
