Good morning all,

I have a meeting late this afternoon to discuss what I'm supposed to be working on this month.  I should have started working on it at the beginning of the month but here we are on the 9th just getting started.  Yeah, we're "Agile".   :P

Looking forward to another long weekend.  I have Friday off again.  One chore around the house on Friday and the rest will be spent at the work bench.  After our kitchen remodel was complete and everything was painted we had a leak in the roof result in a stain the freshly painted ceiling.   >:(  Leak has been repaired.  Now I have to touch up the ceiling to cover the stain.

Have a great one!

Hey Der Folks!


High 40's with some snow flurries.  All day meetings today. SO happy I am starting to feel better, and happy to hear Tom is doing better also.


Have a Great Day All!

A BIG Thanks to all the folks who share their knowledge, and for giving me the inspiration to push the limits in this great hobby!

Morning all.

Have an assignment to finish and deliver today, but hoping to get some bench-time in later on. I’ll be doing an update on my Tribute build progress soon.

Have a great mid-week everyone.

Good morning!  A cool start to the day with some light snow on the way.  I haven't touched the layout or kit for near a week now.  I'll have to change that today.  Be safe.

Morning, all.

Up and ready for work.  Only worked half a day yesterday as it was not very busy so admin thought we were overstaffed.  I'm not complaining, especially as we expect a post Thanksgiving surge here.

Happy Hump Day!

Bob:  Where I worked, we did the opposite.  It would be March before "goals" and such were verified and signed off.  In June, we'd have to put in a mid-year report, then again in late October for the entire year.  Never figured out how the boss determined our progress with 15% of the year left.

Another cold one.  Possible flurry brief activity. 

Some of the ops groups I frequent are getting rolling again. I'm leery of being at those places.  Not set up for social distancing. Easy to imagine many guys are going stir crazy and need the train fix.

Safe and healthy day to all.

Morning all,


Cold here this morning. Going to the grocery store with Pam, I'm staying in the car while she shops.

My plan is to get an hour or two on the layout. I'll wear my mask so the little folks in Tahope don't get the virus. ;D ;D

Please have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Tom ;D

Good morning.


Not sure what Tom thinks is cold...   Twenty eight here and snowing to start the day.


Repairing the cows' round bale feeder tops the list today.  I spent a half day welding new steel onto it less than a month ago.  I wish they would take better care of their toys. 


Everyone have a safe and productive day!
Jerry

Good morning!  I'm dealing with the logistics created by the China Plague, today. Like everyone one else.  I'm hoping to get back to some modeling later this week.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Tom,
You are 100% correct.  Forty two is definitely cold for Florida!  You need to stay warm and safe, too!   ;D
