Thur Feb 20 2020
« on: February 20, 2020, 07:02:42 AM »
Morning all.

Chip, sorry for your loss. Even when expected soon, still difficult.

Some snow expected today, we'll see.

Making some progress with hobby room, and getting bits of bench time in here and there.

Be safe, all.

Jim

Jim F and all,
Thanks for all your kind, supporting thoughts yesterday and this morning. It means a lot to me and I'll show them to Sally when she gets back Sunday.
What a great bunch of guys! Reminds me of the old W. C. Fields line about not wanting to belong to any group that would accept him. I read a lot here, guess I'd best start making some real contributions.
Thanks again.
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Jim, sincere sympathies on your family's loss.  It's never easy, even when not totally unexpected.

Work as usual today, and usually about an hour of work bench time later in the evening. I haven't posted much lately to the Bandit's Roost kit build, as I have been installing the stone retaining walls and stone arches of the sewers and canal that are the base of the module. Might have a pic or two this evening.

Morning, all.

Chip, my sympathies on your loss. 

Here, I am finally off after my seven straight days.  Today is R&R (and maybe some RR  :) ) day.

Good morning! It's cold here - Wayne Olson called me from a AZ desert park to tell me it was 78 degrees there.   I told him it was 81 and I was in the gazebo grilling steaks.  I think spring fever is setting in.  :-[  I hope everyone has a great day.

Morning,

Blue skies and a doctor visit to see if I am alive.

Morning Folks;

Hope everyone has a good day. Chip I just caught up and add my sympathies for your loss.

For me it is clouding here. I continue to fiddle with a diorama I started couple months ago. Friend of mine told me yesterday to quit fiddling, finish it and move on, so that is what I intend to do today.

Good Morning All,

Some moving of stuff today. We're at the point that everything left to move is for the sewing room. Yesterday I put up a couple of display cases in the train room and put stuff away in the closet which is mainly paint and scenic material. Later I'm going to start cleaning the saved turnouts.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Morning all,

Glad to hear you're getting the place back to normal Curt and, hopefully, will be able to start a new layout soon.

Nothing else from here.  Just testing software and slamming my head against my desk over stupid e-mails.   >:(

Have a great one!

Good afternoon from merry England! You know you are getting old when the wife buys you a present of a sound bar so you can hear the dialogue on the TV. I am still taking down the home layout ready for a move somewhere. Meanwhile "Cheffley" (Midsomer built on this forum) is set up in the lounge for a visit on Monday from ace photographer Chris Nevard. Chris works for Model Rail. One of the best mags in the UK and he wants to do a feature on the layout. http://www.nevard.com/
Have a great day!
Mike
