Morning all,

Dec 7th.  "Date which will live in infamy."  :'(

Back to work.  Got some work bench time in over the weekend.  Made a little progress on my boat build but still have a little ways to go.

Have a great one!

Hey Der Folks!


Mid 30's and cloudy today. Finishing up my Christmas shopping, and my hands are finally about healed. Can't wait to get back to kit building.


Have a Great Day All!

Morning all,

I cracked a filing over the weekend so now I'll be at the Dentist Office at 8 AM this morning. The fun never stops here.

Have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Morning, all.

Off today.  Will watch a YouTube special on Pearl Harbor later.  The Time Ghost team is going to have a five hour, minute by minute study of the attack, with simulation by World of Warships.  Should be pretty interesting.

Happy Monday!

Yes, Pearl Harbor Day in the USA.  Have not been to Hawaii, but I've seen photos of the Arizona Monument.  The ship's anchor is displayed.  It was cast in my hometown, Chester, PA. 

Chilly one this morning in SE PA.  But the sun will shine.  Sun in December is good.

You're on a roll, Tom.  Try to find a bright side to your setbacks.  I do that.  It helps one cope.

Good day, all.

Good Morning Folks;

A lot has happened and changed since December 7, 1941. But it is only things we make and what we've done to our world that has changed. We talk about human change as if it is possible but the 79 year record since the 'The Day That Will Live In Infamy' says otherwise. We need to take care of each other and support our armed forces, it remains dangerous 'out there' and I do not see that changing.

Thank You to the Greatest Generation without which I doubt I'd be here to talk about modeling.

Good morning.  I'm on Grandpa duty this morning - my son-in-law through his back out and can't lift the kids.  My daughter is working extra shifts at the hospital to help with the Covid issues. It is a crazy world we live in. I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning.


Late to the party and forgot to bring snacks. :-\


Did get some modeling time over the weekend, mostly the unglamorous stuff like cutting, gluing and clamping wall bracing.


Everyone have a safe and productive day.
Jerry

Morning all.

Lots of work to do today, but the bench still calls like a siren luring me into the waters.

Keep smiling.

I was stationed at Pearl Harbor for 15 years. I saw the memorial almost every day and various military buildings still have the bullet holes in them from strafing runs. The attack is something that the military and Hawaiians never forget about.
