    It worked. Thanks to Rick and Ron. It is good to be back. Quiet day here at the old folks home, just deliver a few meals to residents who can't get out.

      All I can say is that your skills are just as good in "N" scale as they are in "O" scale!

      Any time you want to build something for me let me know I'll send the list!!

        Good morning everyone.

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

        Mostly sunny, with a high near 57.

        Roland, your modeling skills don't diminish with the smaller scale.

        Jerry, make any money with the ponies and how was the concert?

        Karl, I've been a Mac user for at least 20 years and will never go back to a PC.
        A little pricier but I don't mind paying for quality.
        Probably get one of the MacBook pros when I retire and downsize.

        Louis, good news on starting the back of your store.

        Ron, must feel good to be able to start modeling again.

        Larry, hope you're done with the 1:1's for a while.

        Philip, give the cats some time and I'm sure they'll get used to each other.

        Tom, keep hitting them long and straight.

        Mike, how's the downsizing going?

        Concert last night was excellent.

        Waiting for my friend to get out of the shower and then we'll go out to breakfast.
        After he goes home I'll watch football on the back porch and enjoy a cigar while I'm at it.

        Have a great day everyone.

          Sun and light frost, 39 now, here in the first sleep in day of the dreaded daylight's wasting in the morning period. Dreaded earlly sundown and long dragging evenings.

          Did outside work yesterday and will after it warms a little later. Took a couple hours out and went over to see my older son at the shop he's runs in Portland, MI. He is working on a GM LS V-8 that he is putting into a early 2000s Jeep Grand Cherokee. Was nice to visit with him for a bit. The engine project is my fault, we did a 283 chev V-8 back in the mid 80s that he and a friend ran in an old monte carlo until they abused it to death.

          Once home, I started to view the sad football game where my crew added an "L" after the 8 Ws they'd had this season. They've not had a 9-0 start since my freshman year so that record remains intact. They didn't play well enough to succeed and the other folks excelled. I fear the condition Jim's crew van may be in this morning.

          Everyone have a good day. Glad the concert was enjoyable, Rick.

          BE Well, WAKE UP!!! the day is wasting....

            Good morning guys and all incoming crew. It is 42 degrees and sunny here in Rhode Island today.

            Maybe the last time to mow for this season. At least that is what is on my agenda for today so far. Enjoy your time change.

            Everyone have a great, safe and healthy day ahead. See you all on the Forum.

              Morning Gents,

              Rick thanks for the java. The 1:1's should be winding down; at least I hope.
              Glad you enjoyed the concert. Seems they are far and few apart.

              Karl sorry to hear about your Team; I never did get interested in FB only
              basketball College level.

              Louis if you've had a hard frost there in R.I. then probably will be the last
              you'll have to mow this season.

              Roland nice that you are able to help out other folks at the home. Nice to
              see you're modeling prowess once again.

              Jerry how's the new build progressing?

              Philip nice you were able to provide the kitten with a good home. We have a
              stray that's been around about 4 years now and he doesn't seem to be leaving
              any time's too good.

              Mike sounds like the military moved you around a lot and thank you for your

              Ron you modeling up a storm yet?

              Tom enjoy paradise; sure beats the cold temps.

              A frosty 27 this a.m. here in New York with a high of 57. Not sure what the day will bring
              but hopefully a little bench time at some point.

              Have a wonderful day. Be well and stay safe.

                Morning everyone

                Rick thanks for the coffee!!
                Nice shot of the band glad you had a good time.

                The band was pretty decent and most of all we had fun!
                First time we've been to the clubhouse in 12 years!

                I need to fix our mailbox today before the mail person destroys another one this is our third one!
                Can't these guys just close like a normal person!!

                Thanks Mike. Diane wanted to know she live down there way back in the 60's.

                Karl I think everyone feels about the same changing the clocks every year!

                Well its time to get to my mailbox.

                Everyone have a great day!!

                  Good morning everyone,

                  Rick, thanks for the coffee. Another cool one here in Southern Ontario but was sunny so Gracie and I had a great walk, I love my walks in the morning with her.

                  Roland, I modelled in N scale for more than 25 years before I saw the light. I will say though, I learned a lot of fine motor skills modelling in N scale that I still use today. I would put that model on my layout any day, it looks great.

                  Rick, It is nice to be modeling again and the new environment just adds to that feeling. As to modeling up a storm yet, not quite, I spent Yesterday morning cleaning up the layout room, run some errands and take my parents out for dinner last night at a fancy restaurant as my dad celebrated his 90th birthday yesterday. All the electronic components in the drawers are resisters, capacitors, micro-prossessers (Arduino's, Raspberry Pi Pico's etc) and other electronic sundries as I like to dabble in animation.

                  Today, I need to get the groceries, do some more cleanup and hit the modeling bench this evening, all this between watching football.

                  Have a great day everyone.

                    Good morning folks,

                    Rick, thanks for coffee.

                    Roland, sorry to hear about your losses. 2020 and 2021 have not been kind to us. Nice looking structure!

                    Jerry, how was the track?

                    Ron, anxious to see some of your animation dabbling...

                    Larry, what's next on the bench?

                    Karl, better luck to your team next week. Any given day at any given time...a W.

                    Louis, hope you enjoy your last smelling of cut grass, mold, etc...

                    Indeed, we moved around in the military, so got used to it. Moving when you are 74 is not fun, and we downsized once before. Today I packed in the hobby room, put the cricut and the 3D printer in their respective boxes. Next I'll tackle the desk of tools, glues, etc, but first, orange juice and a scifi movie. 2036 Origin Unknown.

                    It's a bright day on the Brazos with the high at 78F. Later, I plan to wash and vacuum the MG. I enjoyed a drive around the neighborhood yesterday. Hoping the Bronco's lose today.

                    Have fun and stay safe,

                      Bringing up the rear today! Work continues on the layout~

                        Good evening

                        A crisp night here in Jersey! Temp right around the high 30's.

                        Fire is going so I put on a few more logs.

                        Mailbox is fixed. And I managed to get another wall framed so one more to go.
                        And did the rafters for the Mill. Which is still a PITA!!

                        Now to sit by the fire put my feet up and have a nice Four Roses with a splash of water!

                        If your around please join in.

                          We had a beautiful sunset this afternoon here in South-central Lower Michigan after a sunny and great clear, dry day. Sure got dark early.

                          Lazy old contrails with a sun dog

                          Pretty much went thru the years long brush pile as well as years worth of “hang on to that box, might send something…” cardboard box collection. Lots of TrainWorld and Model Train Stuff boxes. Smoke laying low in the lower area just off from my property.

                          Some color is still hanging on. I did get the mowing deck off the tractor and used the scoop plenty to. Need to put the snow blower on the next day or so while it’s still warm. Hate crawling on the floor in the cold. Sort of wish I had a dedicated tractor for the snow blower as I’ve really used the bucket a lot and will miss it.

                          Zero sports today.

                          Be well, sleep well, will here after a ibuprofen or two.

                            Karl, beautiful pictures and I enjoyed your reason for editing your post.

                            Jerry, thanks for the fire and congrats on the mailbox and modeling progress.
                            More logs on the fire to keep it warm for everyone else.

                            Philip, good job on the layout progress and any progress with the cats getting along?

                            Mike, glad you enjoyed the MG ride and how was the movie?

                            Ron, I don't remember (that's not unusual) you modeling in N.
                            Any pictures of that posted here?

                            Larry, you're making nice progress on your layout.

                            Louis, hope that was the last mow for you.
                            I think I'm done for the year.

                            Looks like I got lucky with my vacation week.
                            Temps in the 60's everyday.
                            I need to get back on the bike today and get some more thinks either thrown out or listed for sale.

                            Have a great day everyone.
