  • Good Morning,

    Rick thanks for the java this morning. Docs do like to order lab teats especially Specialists. Although
    ultrasounds are pretty simple but a little "greasy".

    Jerry have fun with the new truck; hopefully the other one id fixable at some point. Like the others have mentioned;
    thank you for posting Roland's email. Really miss his comments and also his fine modeling.

    Mike have fun on your "Dads Day" trip and enjoy. Actually it's not a bad thing getting away from the 'puter
    every now and then.

    Karl nice deal on the saw and battery. The Contractor used all battery powered tools and had a "charger bank"
    that would charge 6 batteries at a time; quite impressive.

    Louis have fun on the fire build.

    Ron looking forward to your "gooseneck" tutorial; I may to make a couple down the road.

    Tom hope your feeling better.

    Philip nice to hear from you and hope your all healed up now. Have fun printing.

    After some heavy downpours last night we were greeted with sunny skies about 70 with an 82 here in New York.
    Did manage to get in a little bench time yesterday and maybe I'll post what I've been up to so far. Painted window trim Wed.
    and will finish up a few windows this afternoon. Still waiting on the roof steel to show up.

    Enjoy your day and stay healthy.

    • Good morning. I do feel better. Thanks for the concerns, I appreciate it. It is nice out and the grass was waving at me. Big error on my part. No strength to even drive a garden tractor so came in after 20 minutes.

      Very windy and that is making the high humidity comfortable. Terry should be home around 2 this afternoon. The SIL will go get them. 3 more days of isolation for me. Even if I test negative the county health protocols say for me to isolate. Man, I am bored. Can’t seem to concentrate so have stayed away from modeling projects but may try this afternoon. With Terry coming home I can start swimming laps in the pool again. I can just relax alone but no laps by Doctor’s orders. Building strength back in the pool will be an interesting adventure.

      Enjoy your day


      • Good morning from Wisconsin. High today is supposed to be 77. Now it’s 54f degrees. Very calm and blue looking outside. The 90’s return on Monday. Slept well from midnight to 5AM and wide awake since. I figure a nap will happen this afternoon. Feeling good 75% of the time and unsure how I feel the other 25%. It definitely is strange.



        • Good morning.
          Coffee is on.

          Keeping it real brief.
          I’m outside and set up doing a yard sale.
          Made a few good sales.

          Have a great day everyone.


          • Morning folks,

            Rick, thanks for coffee. Good luck at the yard sale.

            Cooler today at 91F. Headed to mountains in north Georgia so should be even cooler. Father's day weekend treat starting with brunch, then visit wineries, followed by meal at nice restaurant tonight, then train ride ( tomorrow.

            Hope everyone has a nice weekend,


            • Sun and low 50w, chillin’ in the mitten.

              Stopped at a couple garage sales yesterday then did some late day tree trimming. Sneezing like mad this morning. You’d think it was syrup season the way the sap is running. The rest of the jays must have survived in the nest, it’s training day and aggression is on display. Brats even got after the Doll’s cats.

              I have a online bank issue going on that needs dealing with so I need to check,out here.

              Going to step grandson, the “mute” ‘s graduation open house today.

                • Morning everyone

                  Thanks for opening and the coffee Rick.

                  A nice 72 here today. After yesterday's 97.
                  Things to do around the house so no beach today!!

                  Maybe an hour or two at the bench.

                  Everyone have a wonderful day!!

                  • Morning Gents,

                    Rick thanks for the coffee and hope you sell your yard

                    Tom glad your feeling better most of the time, the other 25% will happen.

                    Mike sounds like a really nice weekend lined up...enjoy yourself.

                    Karl hope you get the online banking thing sorted out soon. Have fun at
                    the graduation party.

                    Ron how's the bench time progressing?

                    Jerry 97 yesterday?; it's a little early for that. Yup there's always something
                    to do around the house.

                    The rest of the Crew hope all's well.

                    A cloudy cool 54 with a high of 64 here in New York. Need to replace the bottom
                    sill outside on one of the Kitchen windows due to rot; not sure why that happened since
                    the other one is fine. Hopefully the rain holds off until I get it finished.

                    Enjoy your day and stay healthy!!!!

                      Fingers needed oiling to hit the right keys. I hate when that happens!!!!!!!

                  • Good morning everyone.

                    Coffee, hot water for tea and a selection of chilled soft drinks are ready to enjoy.

                    Sunny, with a high near 74.

                    Sorry, gotta keep it brief again today.
                    Another yard sale today.
                    Didn't get a lot of people, but those that came bought.

                    Have a great day everyone.


                    • Forgot it’s Father’s Day.
                      Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads.


                      • Morning everyone

                        Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

                        HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!

                        We have eggs anyway you want them. Sides of bacon, sausage & hash browns. Toast or English muffins with butter and jams and jellies.

                        Weather in South Jersey sunny/60. High today 74.
                        Not sure if it will be a beach day wind is gusting at 42 mph.

                        Hopefully some pictures of my new project another little truck later today.

                        Everyone have a wonderful day!!

                        • Happy Father's Day,

                          Rick thanks for the coffee. Nice to hear you made some $$ yesterday. I'll keep
                          my fingers crossed for today.

                          Jerry thanks for breakfast and don't get blown away.

                          The rest of the Crew hope your al doing well today.

                          A sunny 50 with a high of 66 here in New York. Never made it outside yesterday....too windy
                          and cold for my tastes. Since this is my day I'm thinking a relaxing day and maybe some time
                          at the bench later.

                          Have a great Dad's Day and stay healthy!!!!!

                            HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!

                            Sunny and cool in MI this morning. Zero plans, so far.

                            Had a nice time at the open house yesterday, the Son IN Law’s family are a lot of fun. I even heard the boy speak, 5 words… nice kid just super timid.

                            Glad your sale is going well, Rick. Our friend Duke in Grand Ledge had one and made $500 the first day and about ran out of stuff.

                            Another friend in rural area nearby was not too pleased with hers. She’s held on to some of her husband that just died in January’s frugality and we saw she was a bit high on some things when we stopped there Friday.

                            We stopped at a couple sales Friday, found few deals. Did pickup a couple little things and also 3 books for taking North. Also a couple tools, Crescent adjustable wrench with a locking pliers type lever on it. Will never beat the full two piece oak machinist’s box FULL of a retired Oldsmobile tool and die supervisor’s tools. Myriad of bits, files, hammers, measuring devices, micrometers, cutting bits, calipers, gages, all for $100. That was probably 10+ years ago.

                            Well, i overstayed my welcome….getting INVALID SERVER RESPONSE messages.

                            ”Talked” too long

                            Good day all.


                            Prepping for trip N. Tomorrow.

                            • Good morning Rick, Jerry, Larry, Karl, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge Rick. Coffee, it is the best way as we all know to start off the day. Happy Fathers Day to all.

                              Back to 54 unbelievable degree weather, with rain and cloudy skies here in Rhode Island at the moment. Not going to get much warmer they say for today.
                              And they say summer is here Tuesday. I don't see it!

                              Not sure what today will bring yet. I'll have to play it by ear. Try to get motivated.

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