  • Monday morning lounge

    Good morning crew, readers, and lurkers from 48f->74f N.E.Indiana. The coffee urn is READY with Rerailer blend. The special is a Western omelet, 2 slices of toast, and 2 sausage links. The oatmeal pot has a fresh batch started for the new week. All other beverages at the end of the line.

    It was good to see TomO check-in yesterday, sounds like he's making a quick recovery. :thumbu

    I got out in the yard yesterday, and cut a very large branch into small pieces with the Sawzall. Then walked back and forth about 20 times to the 'burn barrel' with the smaller pieces about 400' per round trip. Very tiring, but easy exercise. 'burn barrel' one of the best things still allowed with wood, leaves, and paper products, (no plastic, styrofoam, etc) here in the County.

    I was able to successfully, produce a 3D image with the photogrammetry system yesterday. Next up in that process is to convert that image into a usable input to the 3Dprinter. I'll work on that later, after a visit to the Heart Center to see if I get the OK to drive. My chauffeur is ready for that, I'm sure!

    Have a Super day!

    Take the red pill

    Good morning, Jim and later arrivals. It's 40s headed for 60s and sunny on the NH seacoast. I was out for a while just now; the turkey chicks that moved into my pen yesterday had eaten all their food so I had to refill. Off to Seashore in a bit, likely the theme for the rest of the week.

      Good morning Jim and Crew from So. Central cloudy Wisconsin. Heading to high 70’s today.

      Thanks Jim. Slowly I am getting stronger and I am working on that. Today I get my biopsy results and have a CT Chest scan and Ultra Sound tests. 2 procedures I have done countless times before. These are for a baseline for recovery and reoccurrence. Another set is scheduled in 45 days, I think June 27th. After that it depends on the biopsy result.

      Went out to Mom’s Day brunch yesterday. Other then a salad with apple vinegar and melon I could barely eat anything because of the NO SODIUM diet. I had talked to the manager last week checking about the low sodium and they said fine they will prepare me something. However, the main chef was off yesterday and the remaining line cooks didn’t know enough to adjust recipes. I survived. Hopefully with todays testing results I won’t need the Radiation and I can ditch the diet. Low carbs is a piece of cake compared to this.

      Maybe this evening I can get to the train room. I will be relaxing, (letting the sedatives wear off) the rest of the day.

        Good morning, Jim and crew. We're in the 50's in Tidewater Virginia.

        We've been out of town last week, so I have a lot of catching up to do. First off is a trip to Costco. Later, I have some yard work to do. No mrring today.

        Have a good day.

          Sun is out but it's not all that warm yet - was 40* this morning. Had a small fire in the fireplace last night to clear out the last of the inside wood and to also dispose of a box of old financial records - the yearly purge as it were.....

          There & back from the grocer already; off to return the unopened flooring packs shortly.

          Might be able to get outside today and get a few outdoor things done, but probably not warm enough for painting yet.

          Plenty of stuff to do in the shop & office. Caps game tonight!

          In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

            Good morning JIm and the rest of the crew. Good to hear that both Jim and Tom are building back their strength.

            It is sunny and heading just above 70 degrees here in S.E. Michigan. A couple of hours of yard work this morning and then back to the modeling bench this afternoon. At least that is the plan.

            Have a great day!

              Sun this morning in Michigan, smile inducing, but is still “brisk” aka cold feeling. Best guess was that the 7-0 barrier will be crossed later. Contrast to the 90s my cuz in Jax-ville reports, might be summer she reports. We have 80s in our sight picture for later in the week. No rain either for several days. Fields around still look really wet. Still chilled in the morning, tho.

              Mother’s Day was fine, heard from all the crew, my brother called and we reminisced of all the egg shell walks this day used to provide… . The afternoon was spent at the other daughter and son in law’s. Feasted with a fine meal of authentic beef fajitas, daughter’s mother in law, Ophelia, is a fine Mexican cook and and has shared her skills with an enthusiastic student.

              Better get this posted before the Red ! Of Shame pops up…

              Great day all…L8R

                Good morning guys and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge for our daily chat and cup of brew.

                The Mrs. had a good day yesterday. Filled with all the mom day choices.

                51 degrees and sunny, but very windy here in Rhode Island today. Must mow the lawn today. All that past rain made it jump out of the ground.

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