Tuesday - Dec 8, 2020 - Is your X-Mas Shopping done yet?
« on: December 08, 2020, 07:20:48 AM »
Morning all,

Not much time left to shop for X-Mas.  I've done most of mine from the comfort of my computer chair.   ;)  Everything except scratch off lottery tickets.  ::)

Just another day at work today.

Have a great one!

PS - A package just arrived for my better half.  It has that familiar FOS tape on it.  I wonder what she's planning on building.   :P

High 30's and cloudy. Yup, almost done with my Christmas shopping. No plans for today other than the workday.


Have a Great Day All!

Morning all,

I feel better today than I have in 5 weeks. I'll do a final update on the Covid-19 thread later this afternoon.

OMG, it sure feels good to feel good.

Stay safe and healthy my friends.

Glad you are back Tom.

I need to do some odd and end shopping for my better half but for most part done. Go Amazon.

Today is my day to work the museum layout at Lady Lake. I've been taking measurements for a complete facelift. With only four guys rotating work there nobody is upset with updating, especially as I have been cleaning and fixing as well.

Hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning.


Tom, glad to read that you are feeling better.


Christmas shopping, Bah Humbug!  Yep, I'm one of those guys... :-[


Cold, snowy and windy 24 degree start to the day with little change in the temperature thru the day.  Brr.  I'm not ready for this weather. 


Everyone have a safe and productive day!
Jerry

I haven’t even started my Xmas shopping yet!

Fortunately, neither has my wife.

More work today, but then back to my Saulenas’ build later.

Good Morning,

My Mom was admitted to the hospital for difficulty breathing last night. Covid has been ruled out but they don't know the cause yet. My dad said it's been going on for a week  >:( without saying anything.

I hope everyone has a good day.

Finally the xmas tree has been decorated, mostly. This seems to be a never end effort.

Bob - don't you hate it when the better half beats you to the latest FOS kit?

Tom - glad to hear you are "back on track"

Someone mentioned the other day a reference to the Thatcher's Inlet series in RMC. About a year ago I pitched out 40 years worth of RMC magazines (keeping only the articles that I had an interest in and all the FSM ads) but kept the 4 issues of the Thatchers' series intact. I too still pull out those issues from time to time.....

Hope everyone has a great day.....

Good afternoon.  I'm on Grandpa duty again today and the morning evaporated.  As for Christmas shopping, it's done. My wife and CFO of the S&S RR took care of it - all on the computer this year.  I had some input on a few gifts but she did the work. Since we have had Grandkids we wrap something up for each other under the tree, that we usually buy ourselves.  For me Christmas is spending time with the family and enjoying the true meaning of the holiday. We buy what we need throughout the year and spend the X-Mass money on the kids. We will have to wait until next summer to get the whole family together this year.


Happy Anniversary Bill and Cindy! I missed it, yesterday. Curt - good luck with mom.


I hope everyone has a great day.

Red Hook Wharf just sprang up on eBay. Not yours is it, John?

Either way, I’ll be watching.
