Morning all,

Last work day of the week.   :)  The agenda for tomorrow includes routine blood work in the a.m. and wrapping X-Mas presents.  Probably some workbench time too.   ;)  Today's agenda is testing software.   :(

Have a great one!

Howdy,


Two more days at the salt mines before I get to do yard work in the cold lol


Have a good one folks. I am looking forward to seeing all the big Fos and Bar Mills super kits for the 2021 build challenge.


Later.

Morning, all.

Extra free day for me.  Supposed to work today, but not needed.  Our post Thanksgiving burst didn't materialize here, but it certainly has in other parts of the country.  Anyway, I'm starting a kit today as I'm tired of looking at the layout work.  It's too early for the challenge, but I'm sure I can find another project for that.

This is where those little FOS freebies come in handy.  They're like an appetizer before the main course.   ;D

Morning.

Have a bunch of meetings stacked on top of each other today.
I started some hobby stuff last night but called it quits after an hour — I was just too tired. Will try again today!

Weekend is already beckoning, and with Christmas calling now too, it’s finally time where I can legitimately sit back and say “thanks, but no thanks” — to the work of course ;)

Morning all,

Taking Pam to the grocery store, I'll wait in the car, while she gets all we need.

A little layout work later in the day. Have a safe and healthy day ya'll.

Morning,

Nothing worth mentioning now, except coffee is calling me.

Good morning from the snowbound north. 


Forecast was for 15-20 inches of snow overnight last night.  Yikes.  They missed it by a little.  Right now we have 36" of the white stuff and it is still falling, forecast to drop another 3-6" before it moves away.  It took me an hour this morning to shovel a path from the house to the barn.  Not sure how I am going to dig out of this as I prepped a smaller tractor yesterday with blade, chains, etc.  The big tractor is in the shed but the chains are upstairs in the barn.  Oops!  FWIW, these chains weigh 150# each and getting them onto the tractor is a challenge, one I obviously should have managed yesterday.  So, no modeling for me today!


The road in front of my house hasn't been plowed since about none o'clock last night and looks to have well over two feet of snow on it.

Everyone have a safe and productive day.

Good Morning Folks;

No snow here, might need a light jacket from what I saw getting the paper. Got some end of year paperwork and hopefully some bench time today.

Have a great day folks.

Wow, Dennis. And to think there’s barely a flake here in MN!

To all — I’m seeking Bar Mills’ TORY HILL (HO) kit. I know it’s in their site, but figured I’d check here first just in case anyone wants to move theirs on.

Dennis got some of our snow, only 4" at 9:30 this morning in Dover NH.  But more to come... 


Some Christmas to-do and then maybe I'll get down to the train room.  But that's what i've been saying for the past several days, and it hasn't happened yet.
