  • Good morning everyone.

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

    Increasing clouds, with a high near 55.

    It's quick turn Monday so I'm keeping it very brief today.
    Hope everyone is healthy and doing well.

    Have a great day everyone.

    • Good morning Rick, and all incoming crew. Thanks for the quick chat and cup of brew this morning Rick.

      Even a quick hello is a good thing Rick. Enjoy the day and keep it safe.

      Mike, when you stop in, to answer your question on the kit of the Month club, Not all the kits are built on time, but worth the price of the kits to receive.

      We are at 44 degrees this morning here in Rhode Island, and temps should rise some throughout the afternoon.

      Yard work today, so I don't think any bench time will happen today.

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

      • Morning everyone

        I was waiting for you to put on the coffee! Thanks.

        We have scrambled eggs with sides of bacon, sausage or Taylor ham. Toast or English muffins.

        Weather in South Jersey sunny/ windy/40.
        Later on 55.

        Need to take the neighbor to the dr. today she gets a shot in here eye and can't drive.
        Then I need to get our stuff out of the HONDA. No part yet.
        And see if they can call other places to find the part so we can get out car back.

        I hope all you guys get to do what you want today.

        Everyone have a wonderful day!!

        • Good morning Rick, Louis, Jerry and the rest of the crew that drops in later.

          Thanks for the coffee Rick,

          Nothing new to report here. It is presently 48F and Sunny. No modeling lately as I have been busy doing "other" stuff. Not sure when I will get back to the workbench, will wait for the mood to strike. That's the problem when you have more that one interest.

          Have a great day everyone.

          So, how’s your day going?

          Everyone have a safe day, I’m really getting tired of this, but, I’m alive and well. Plenty to do here, spackled a pantry closet in prep of a repaint. “Cheap” store brand latex paint is $25/quart. Need to do some sort of shelving, what was in there got beat up in 20 yrs.

          Enjoy.

          • Good Morning,

            Rick thanks for the coffee and have a good day at work.

            Louis sounds like you'll have kits to build for years to come. Invest now
            and build later....not a bad deal.

            Jerry thanks for breakfast. Hope you get the Honda sorted out soon....that's
            gotta suck.

            Ron sometimes there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done that
            you want to especially when your still working.

            Karl that weather is just wrong.....but if it makes you feel any better we've had the
            same thing here. Good luck on the Pantry.

            Rest of the Crew hope you're all doing well.

            A cloudy 37 with a high of 46 here in New York. Well it's "Easter Decorating" day here
            at the old homestead. With everything going on today the bench may get sacrificed.....we'll
            see.

            Have a great and safe day. Be well!!!!

            • Good morning everyone.

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

              A slight chance of showers after 2pm. Cloudy, with a high near 57.

              Jerry, the guy making your car part, maybe he's spending more time at the beach instead of the bench.

              Louis, lots of yard work to do this time of year.

              Ron, enjoy doing your other stuff.

              Karl, you said "I’m really getting tired of this", I don't blame you, but your follow up comment was excellent.

              Larry, yesterdays post made me think of this old classic.

              Philip, anything good happen in the basement?

              Roland, so glad you're home.
              Keep up with the PT and you can trash the walker.

              Tom, continue having a good time in your travels.

              Mark, was happy to see you stop in the other day.

              Nothing interesting or new to report here in Central Joisey.

              Have a great day everyone.

              • Good morning,

                Rick, thanks for opening and coffee.

                Bad weather is headed this way, boomers, hail, etc. Oh Spring!

                Stepped of the deck at daughters place on Sunday evening. The tumble yielded busted knees, sprained wrists, and sore muscles everywhere. Yesterday, we visited the Coca Cola museum and Atlanta aquarium, and it was was a fun time with the family. Today the kids are going to tackle unpacking Sharon's office/craft room. That will be a chore. Unpacking the layout room is getting closer. Here is how it looks now, but there is still more in the garage:

                  Rick, thanks for the coffee and the "classic" really enjoyed it.

                  Roland, glad to hear that you are home. The PT will be a bi%$h, but you will be walking again without the walker in no time.

                  Mike, glad you didn't break anything in the tumble and are able to do stuff with the family.

                  Karl, spring has to come soon, doesn't it.

                  No modeling last night as I spent time working on the upcoming convention that I am the chair of.

                  Have a great day everyone.

                    Spring will come, yes. For about two days then plunge right into the blazing hell of summer…all those jobs, “I’ll get right at that as soon as it warms up a bit…” we’ll be all wimped out from sitting and griping all winter and somebody will insist on having the A/C on…

                • It’s 38 going to 50(?) today. Maybe. Dull grey shade 93 this morning….50 shades is just for women. Rain later. Viewing the bridge this am, it’s enshrouded in fog. No one has any sort of nice weather anywhere close.

                  Stayed up ‘til 0-dark-30 watching the NCAA game. 2 teams I have zero connection or attachment to dueling on the big stage. Decent entertainment.

                  Spackled and sanded, the closet is ready for paint.

                  Roland, good to see you are progressing. Mike, you need some orange barrels.

                  Rick, watched the bugs clip….Deeduss tweyest oh Elmer dot hid dust deedwerts…

                  Good day all.

                    • Morning & thanks for the coffee.

                      Another damp dreary day, rained nonstop all night. Climate control is on as the dampness kills my old bones.

                      My Sister in law is having a double mastectomy Thursday so we will commute to the hospital early am.
                      She's has a long road ahead.

                      About it from my foxhole.
