  • Friday morning lounge

    Good morminmg all from Partly sunny N.E. Indiana. The coffee uirn is READY with MOW lend as I see Karl and his construct gang are busy already, He'll check in later, just off the telegraph here. The special is breakfast burritos w or w/o chorizo. I'm doing chorizo this morning. All other beverages ready at the end of the line.

    A little too much outside work over here yesterday. I finally put the ridge cap on the roof project, and I'm calling that done. (except for finding the old nails that landed who knows where).

    Very little modeling time yesterday. but I worked some model railroading software stuff. Anyway, I've got to head over to the hardware store and pick up some lag bolts to hang a few flower pots on the shed.

    Have a Super day!

    Take the red pill

      Good morning, Jim, Mark and crew. It's another wet morning in Tidewater Virginia, so no yard work today.

      I'm still plugging away at my swayback project. It's slow, but It's mostly progress.

      Have a good day.

        Good morning Jim and Mark we have rain all day but that’s OK better days are coming. I am hoping to bring the street rod home sat and make it fit in the garage. Going to put up some more dri wall in the train room and finish up the wiring around the base boards then to the ceiling lights everyday it’s looking better. See you all later. Tom

          Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is overcast and 60 degrees here in S.E. Michigan. There is a chance of some drizzle later today.

          I spread a few cubic yards of mulch yesterday and mowed the lawn. At that point my body was telling me that it was time to call it quits for the day. Not bad, I got about 5 hours of work in before that.

          I will be back at the mulch project today, weather permitting.

          I'll post some final outdoor pictures of the Campbell oil derrick project today and then I can put that one to sleep until the layout gets built.

          Have a great day!

            Got the news today that the Senate yesterday approved the appointment of my former boss (as a MAJ/LTC) and good friend Dave Bassett to be Lieutenant General... So nothing will ruin this day for me.

            Hot today, 85, (too hot for me), but back to the more seasonal high 60s/low 70s for the weekend. Today I should start connecting the new HOn30 track to the bus.

              Good morning Crew and Jim thanks for the breakfast but I will start off with a diet Dr Pepper. Yesterday the drill master and I filled 72 pots with 4 flowers, a spikey thing and 2 Hang over the edge plants. I am being very exact in my descriptions but the main 4 flowers are white. Today’s excitement is to fill the 5 flower beds at the new house with the flowers. The 5% overnight chance of rain turned into 100% with a accumulation of 1/4”, our expert weather folks on TV are not embarrassed by the mistake. It was a passing early morning sprinkle is how they are describing it. Be safe and have a great day.

                Miserable rainy day and I've already made 1 trip to the MiL's apartment here in VA to empty it out as she's staying at her condo in FL. I moved her a year ago from PA, and through we had whittled her stuff down, but I swear it all multiplied back to a full sized mess in under a year, :erm:

                Rest of the day is in the home office; galley proofs to review, NMRA docs to edit, and maybe if I get up to a good place I'll even write an article or 3.

                Been stripping paint off from old IMP gons in the garage as it's too damp to paint....[!]

                Maybe next week I can get painting again?

                My new computer built by my son is sitting on the kitchen table.....we'll see how that migration goes over the weekend.

                  Good Morning from the eastern end of Lake Ontario:

                  Thanks for the Breakfast Burritos, Jim. They have been a favourite of my wife, Megan, since we returned from Europe back in March.

                  Clear skies and temperatures in the mid-20sC/mid-70sF for today, and for the weekend too!

                  Yard work is calling me today. Perhaps some model train-oriented business will beckon later.

                  Have a great day everyone.

                  Stay safe, healthy and positive,

                    Quick check in from the Sunnyside shore of Lake Michigan.

                    The crew just poured the basement floor, plus dig out the second readymix truck that backed about 10 feet too far.

                    We’re off to the building supply to talk windows

                    Highlight is it’s the Doll’s birthday. Good weekend all. Later

                        Particularly so if your MiL is a closet hoarder :erm:
