    Good morning all, from 18f and clear N.E. Indiana. The coffee urn is READY with Getbackundertheblanket blend this morning. I've got a bacon, egg, and cheese casserole in the oven for when you roll in later. Raisin toast, bagel, and cream cheese if you are in a hurry. Of course the oatmeal vat is gurgling at the end of the line.

    Yesterday was adding some details to the turntable day. I ended up building the operator's hut, making the center track cover, adding safety rails, and basically 'making it look like a turntable'.

    This morning another appointment with the 'old' eye doctor to get re-examined. My new glasses are 'headache specials', and I've been using the old pair for the past 2 weeks. We'll 'seeid="green">' if he acknowledges their error.

    That's on the P.O.D. here.

    Have a Super day!

    Good morning, Jim. It’s a cold but sunny day here in the mountain state. I’ll have the oats and coffee.

    I’ll be going over to the club to set up modules this morning. Then a walk on the rail trail.

    I was thinking of posting a photo of reefers on this month’s photo thread but decided “up you go” doesn’t mean “getting high.” A metal working friend told me he fabricated stairs for the outside of a building. One day he saw the building had been razed but his stairs were still standing.

    Have a great day!

    Mike

      Good morning Jim and the rest of the crew. It is 16 degrees and sunny here in S.E. Michigan. We should get up near 40 later today.

      We head up towards Saginaw this morning and will stop in Frankenmuth on the way back.

      Some modeling time after that.

      Have a great day!

        Good morning from Wisconsin. It is 17f degrees in the land of the frozen tundra. But even though the sun is bright without a cloud in the sky it feels like 8. High is in the 40’s today.

        Jim thanks for opening and I will be scooping from the vat this morning.

        Yesterday was the beginning of another 15 day change to the exercise program. My trainer has devised the stupidest exercise I have read about or now done. In the pool take a 20# medicine ball and hold it above your head and start walking across the pool. Easy peasy, not. Thought I was going to croak after the 3rd length, did the 5 she wanted though. The lap pool is 6’ deep so this 5’10’ person has to wear a snorkel as I walk, no bouncing allowed. I am extremely sore this morning. Today is stair climbing and walking since the outside trail is clear for about 1.5 miles. The insurance stopped the Physical Therapist for my Lyme Disease as of 2/28. So the PT/Trainer is now just the trainer and is the same Sadist who has been with all my health recoveries since we moved from up north in 2014. A wonderful lady until it’s time to workout.

        My vaccine shot has been moved again now it’s March 28 but they are hopeful of earlier. So, off to the clinic last Thursday for my Covid test to travel to what I have been told is glorious weather and available jabs in the 50th state. My results are back and it’s positive, deja vu all over again. My Lyme meds obviously don’t like the Covid test. Terry has her 2nd shot in 3 weeks and then we will decide what to do then. I know I still feel great. Online doctor visit at 8.

        Trains, I will install the last of the LED’s I have, 24’. Today is valance day and the daughter’s neighbor has cut the Masonite strips for me as I no longer have a table saw. It cost me 4 loaves of my rye bread. I hope to have the valance installed by dinner at 7pm. I will be using lots of clamps unless the daughter shows up to help. Enjoy your day.

          Good morning, Jim and crew. It's in the 30's here in Tidewater Virginia and the sun is out. I have a couple errands to run this morning. I need to sit down and do my taxes, but I have a motivation problem.

          I spent a lot of time yesterday dissembling the tender on one of my locomotives. It was constantly stalling when I tried to run it. I removed the trucks, cleaned all the electrical contacts, but it still stalled. I did a search on the internet and dirty track was mentioned as a possible cause. I feel like the guy that calls tech support and is asked if the computer is plugged in. After cleaning track, and it runs like a dream. [:-ashamed]

          Have a good day.

              I bought rye bread and corned beef yesterday after reading of TomO's adventures.

              Always one to support the forum by checking out the ads at the bottom of the page when they show up...I added a styptic pencil to the shopping list after seeing the adv. over the weekend...I can't afford any new power tools.



              My last supportive adventure had unintended consequences...thank goodness for social distancing...



              I see the cancel crew has another victim on their obit list, Dr. Suess has joined Aunt Jemima on the growing list of things that never existed because they cause micro aggressive discomfort to snowflakes. I'll have to add iambic pentameter to my grits and cornbread on the banned list...oh yeah, no green ham, either.

              Will work a bit more on the gas station today, it's pretty chilly, 12 at 0400, but sunny and going to 40 mid afternoon.

              Everyone have a fine day.
