    Good morning Rick, Louis, Larry, Karl and the rest of the crew that drops in later.

    Rick, thanks for the coffee, glad you are feeling better today as the DR's appointment I've liked Maclaren for years so you can say they are my favorite F! team.

    Karl, that sucks about the battery, at least you know now and not find out about it when you need it.

    Well it is presently 56F and sunny today with a high expected to be 75F, supposed to hit the low 80s tomorrow. Had some time at the bench yesterday. Tried to put the outhouse internals in but it was a little tight. Tried a little gentle (very gentle) persuasion and the walls exploded like a house of cards. Spent the rest of my modeling time rebuilding the framing.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Weird here 65 last eve at shortly after 7 after even warmer most of the day, Winter Cast threatens snow! It is cooler, 45, today and may only top at 50 then rain with some volume late today and over night.

    Change over of the Deere to spring ops is complete and the brand new (N)Everlast battery in the zero turn is so dead it didn’t even click the starter so dead putting the charger on it didn’t register a thing, caused me to put it on another battery just to verify it was ok. Far from time to mow here. Will get battery before long.

    Did some cleanup in the shop/barn. Walked the palatial estate and noted all the work coming up to do.

    Rick, the tests the med folks do are something at times. My most recent test on nerves in hands was electrifying ​​​​​​ to say the least.

    The Doll is off to the Post Office already. I still need breakfast. Bowl of oat glue most likely.

    Good day all.

    Good Morning,

    Rick thanks for the coffee this morning. That's a great idea using those tiny sticks;
    especially under the pine trees....thanks. Glad your feeling better today...that just sucks!

    Louis you're not alone I'm looking forward to spring too.

    The rest of the Crew hope you're all doing well.

    A sunny 41 here in New York with a high of 64. Spent a couple of hours raking and picking up
    sticks and branches yesterday. Seemed good to get outside and do some yard stuff....and of
    course my back is thanking me today. A trip to H&R Block sometime today to finalize the Estate
    taxes and pay them an obscene amount of money for doing so. Bench time?

    Have a great day everyone and enjoy the nice weather. Be well!!

    Good morning Rick and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up, the lounge this morning Rick, it's the best way to start off the day with a chat and cup of brew.

    Glad you are better today Rick. No doctor visit is fun in my opinion.

    52 digress already this morning in Rhode Island. A welcomed sight and feeling. Looking forward to spring!

    Nothing planned for today railroad wise, so we'll play it by ear and see what the day brings.

    Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. I'll see you all on the RR-L Forum.

    Good morning everyone.

    Coffee, hot water for tea and an assortment of cold sodas are ready for your enjoyment.

    Patchy dense fog before 10am. Otherwise, partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 72.

    Philip, good to hear from you and hope you can get the tax issue resolved.

    Larry, maybe some of the real small sticks you're picking up can be used under your trees on the layout.

    Ron, sounds like you still managed to get some bench time in.
    BTW, do you have a favorite F1 team you root for?

    Mike, hope the unpacking ends soon.

    Tom, keep having fun on the layout.

    Karl, hope the aches and pains aren't so bad today.

    Jerry, hope the back is much better today.

    To everyone else, how are you all doing.

    I got some things done before my Dr's. visit.
    After my visit I didn't feel like doing anything.
    By far the most painful exam ever.
    I'll spare you all the details.
    Much better today and work around here continues.

    Have a great day everyone.

    I hear ya!! Had to do them for 2021 and again for 2022; the account will be closed in a few months when all this gets settled.
    Although I'd rather pay the IRS than have them breathing down my neck years down the road.

    Morning Gents,

    Rick thanks for the coffee and good luck with the test and the Docs visit. What gets me is the IRS still wants taxes from
    my Sister in law even though she passed away last July....that's just wrong.

    Tom have fun redoing the track; I'm sure it will be well worth the time spent.

    Karl I'm right there with you staying off the roads tonight....today everyone is Irish. Little known fact: corned beef is an
    American Irish tradition.....in Ireland they use ham instead. This was told to me years ago by a lady right from Ireland...
    loved the accent!

    Mike keep plugging away at the unpacking and it'll be done before you know it.....then you can move on to the fun stuff.

    Jerry hopes the back feels better and yes getting old certainly does SUCK!!!!!!!

    The rest of the Crew hope your all doing well this St. Paddy's Day.

    A nice 52 this am with a high of 66 here in New York. May have to get outside later and fire up the Deere, grabbed the lawn cart
    and start picking up branches and sticks. Made some progress at the bench yesterday and hope to post an update later. Guy came
    out gave me a couple of work estimates yesterday....seemed quite reasonable for the work.

    Enjoy this gorgeous day!! Be well.

    Good morning Rick, Jerry, Karl, Tom, Mike and the rest of the crew that drops in later.

    Rick, thanks for the coffee.

    Jerry, hope the back feels better soon.

    Karl, like Tom, I found nothing offensive.

    Tom, interesting paint mixer you have there.

    Mike, Hope the unpacking is going well.

    Well it is currently 54F and raining here in Central Virginia. Spent a little time at the bench last night, The new season of "Drive to Survive" is getting in the way of bench time. What I did accomplish was to glue the framing of the sides and the back of the outhouse to the base and the frame of the seat cut and glued together.

    Have a great day everyone.

    Good morning,

    Rick, thanks for coffee. Happy weekend.

    Foggy this morning, but warming to 72F this afternoon. It is raining quite a bit, and coming from Texas we are not used to so much rain. We are still unpacking and will be for the foreseeable future.

    Hope everyone is well and having some fun.
