Morning, team!

Clicked this site first today. Now I'll read the paper. 

 Gentle rain this AM in SE PA.  Still humid.

Couple doctor visits today. Still better than working.

You all be safe, smart, and model well.

Larry

Good morning.


We got a little over three quarters of an inch of rain late yesterday and into the early morning hours.  It is still raining lightly at the moment. That's good for my pastures but means a damp (wet?) start to the day. 


Hope everyone has a great day!
Jerry

Morning, all.

My yesterday was pretty much a bust.  The onsite "team meeting" that I showed up for became a phone meeting (I didn't get the email), Lowe's didn't have the item that their site said was in stock, and the sump pump guy cancelled, all this before 9 AM.   :P    Later, I tried making a rock casting with my new Bragdon supplies, and it didn't turn out well, either ( I suspect my error, and will try again tomorrow).  Today, it's a workday, my last short shift as we go back to 12 hour shifts Monday.

Morning all,

First, I'm off to edge and cut the grass prior to all the rain. It will be humid but I'm starting early.

I have nothing else.

Have a great day ya'll.

Good Morning All,

The animals woke me up early today because they were starving. Some chores first then work on the layout.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Good morning! The crew was here at 6 AM to start my new driveway. I will be working on the layout in-between trips up stairs to see how they are doing. I will have some work to do once they are done. I hope everyone has a great day.

Morning all. Haven't had a chance to check in lately as it has been busy. Work is getting back to a more scheduled workday and I've been able to get north to camp but haven't gotten that fully opened. Haven't had a chance to be at the bench in a few weeks. I'll try and do better..🥴

Morning all,

Off to do some yard work shortly.  I'll do what I can until the heat/humidity gets to me.  I set myself a limit of three bags of yard waste max.   :)  Don't be impressed.  The plant I'm pruning has huge leaves so it fills up a bag rather quickly.  I put three bags out the other day and barely made a dent in it.

Workbench time this afternoon.  I'm enjoying this staycation.  I could get used to this.  Too bad it'll end after next week.   :(

Have a great one!

Send the driveway guys to PA!
I've called four contractors and none of them has bothered to return my calls.
Tree guys got here an hour ago, took out a diseased ash tree and are ready to leave. I couldn't believe what they ran through the chipper trailer and it's all sawdust now!
Stay smart, stay safe and stay healthy.
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Dr Jeff, sorry about the meeting frustration!  (been there, suffered through that!) 


Parts for a couple more track/electrical projects are due today. 


I got a quote from a Nissan dealer for my current truck (Frontier), which I'm thinking about trading in for a Colorado that has a lot more safety features.  Of course, it's at least $1k less than I expected.  We'll see what the Chevy dealer wants to give me for it tomorrow.  I might not buy the new truck and stick with the Nissan for a while longer.  (
