    It's going to be Thursday here for another 1:15. No modeling Wednesday because the kid had a regional middle school track meet; He won the mile, then there was a celebration and I barely squeezed my evening computer work in before bedtime. Today was a better day at Seashore, as a tech told me the rail saw's manufacturer's brand of blade needed to be installed with the warning label out. Not mentioned in the manual, on the blade box or the blade's label, but it has worked once. I have a bunch of measuring and rail bending before I try another cut.

    I recall Herkimer extruded aluminum body shells from 1960s MR ads. I think the dies changed hands, probably multiple times after Herkimer closed. IIRC similar extruded aluminum bodies were available as recently as the turn of this century, though I don't recall that manufacturer's name.

    After an hour and 24 minutes of 'HOLD' and 'I'll be right back". They finally rescheduled a Monday delivery.

    Tom-
    I've been spreading the mulch rather thin. More of a cosmetic improvement. Just stopped at the Orange Big Box store and picked up a few extra bags. We had a nice gathering for our 98 year old friend and got caught-up on happenings with the others. Beautiful summer day here. Too nice to be at the bench.

    Cool, bright sun and dull wits this morning. Now that it’s afternoon.

    Jim, I happened onto a Yoo-toob video some truck delivery guys does. Orange truck I think Home Depoo, he defined his work as “curb side” delivery as edge of road. Theme of his vid seemed to be he’s a nice guy and customers are “Karens”.

    No hobby stuff today. The Doll is boiling, stray hen from neighbor’s has been rearranging the premium cypress mulch..dumplings for dinner?

    Later all.

    I remember seeing those OK streamliners yrs ago in my “yout” adv in MR? No personal experience with them.

    MarkB. 80 bags, we only have 20 that we were doing 5-7 per day. 1 day left and we now need 10 more bags. It seems the application machine decided she wanted her beds thicker this year. Since she was spreading the mulch they became thicker.I am just the grunt labor this year.

    Good morning Guys, and all incoming crew. Thanks for opening up the lounge this morning Dave. It is the best way to start off the day.

    64 degrees and cloudy here in Rhode Island today. Got a late start with the RR-L Forum today, I went out this morning and put down Step #2 of 4 step Scotts lawn fertilizer.

    Thanks to all for the Critter build comments. I finished my Crane Critter Locomotive, and finished the Boom Car as well. Looking for something else to do now.

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

    Good morning. It's a sunny 73F in northern WV, nearly the high for today. Good day for getting out on the rail trail.

    I did a lot of small jobs around the house yesterday. My model railroading consisted of writing an article on our new club layout and a progress report for the club business meeting this evening. I think I'll do something different today.

    Have a nice day.

    Mike

    I believe Herkimer also manufactured the 049 O.K.Cub engine, that model airplane modelers loved in the 1950's.

    Pass along all our regards to 'Birthday Boy!' I threw a birthday party for one of my former employees who turned 100 last August. He too was a WWII Vet, a Captain under Patton at the Bulge`. Wer're looking forward to celebrating 101 this August, he'll probably drive himself, just like last year.

    Spending the day working on/off on the galley proof; in between working on submitted articles to edit.

    Got some decals to apply and some assembly to do on a project for when the eyes get tires of reading and reading and reading.......

    I'm thinking a long walk today regardless of heat just to clear the head & eyes.

    But 1st, more coffee!!!!


    So it goes.....

    Good morning from So. Central Wisconsin where the weather guessers were wrong again yesterday. We reached 80 which made it a delightful afternoon but a rather cool morning. Today they are saying 75 which means we should break 80 today. It is very clear blue and the wind is a mere 5mph.

    Well, no matter how my doctor appointment goes tomorrow we will be staying in Wisconsin a few more days. The 10 year old granddaughter is graduating from 5th grade, elementary school to sixth grade in the Middle school. Big deal for the family as she is Down Syndrome and this is a great achievement for her. The ceremony is 6/8/2022.

    I will head into the train room that I have been avoiding. I didn’t want to leave a project on the bench since the plan was we were leaving Friday. Now with at least another week I will have the needed time to finish.

    Dave thanks for opening today.
