Morning Dave and all who follow,

No Black Friday here either.  Just another Friday in the cube.   :P

I'd rather have this for an office.

Have a great one!

Happy Thanksgiving all,

Just sitting around while my better half prepares a wonderful feast for the three of us.  I may even squeeze a little work bench time in later on this afternoon.  If I don't fall asleep after the feast.   ::)

Speaking of's Mr. Slim Jerkins, the lovely Mrs. Slim and S&S RR enjoying a mini feast at Primanti Brothers in Altoona earlier this month.  Also at the table (apologies to those excluded from the photo) were Dave K and Donato.  Look at the size of that soft pretzel!   :o

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Today is the second of three Fridays this week.   :o  I took yesterday off and, after the morning errands/appointments were taken care of, spent a pleasant afternoon at the workbench.  Turkey day tomorrow and then back in the cube on Friday for the third, and final, Friday of the week.   :P

Perusing my DVD cabinet yesterday I noticed a stack of DVD's.  All of the "Breaking Bad" DVD's were stacked on top of "Building and Weathering HO scale Vehicles".  Well, the combination made me laugh anyway.   ;D

Have a great one!

Welcome to the forum Kipsley!

What you've built is truly incredible.   :D  Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful models.   :D  :D

Morning all,

Day off today.  I have a Doctor's appointment for my annual lecture.   ;)   Oh great, that means I may get to sit in a waiting room with a bunch of people that have the crud.   :o   Oh well.  I have to work tomorrow and Friday but I have a feeling things will be quiet at the office.  Especially on Friday.

This afternoon I may just spend some quality time at the workbench.   :D :D

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Oh geez.....Dave, Dan and Tom have been here already.  Somebody better disinfect this place to protect those of us who haven't caught whatever nasty bug it is that's been going around.   :P

I got more time in at the workbench yesterday.   :D  Progress, albeit slow as usual, is being made. 

Have a great one!

Looks great Lynn!   :D  Thanks for sharing pictures of your build.

Morning all,

Should be a day at the workbench today (after the normal morning errands/routine).

Still crossing my fingers that I dodged the Altoonie crud and whatever else folks are coming down with.   :-\   I hope those that are affected by it are on the road to recovery and starting to feel better.  A lot of folks at the office have it too and they didn't even go to Altoona.

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Dinner this evening in Mt. Dora and Breakfast this morning with Jr. (as soon as he's ready).  The in between time is mine.  I think.  Better check with the boss first.   ;)

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Geez....there's a bunch of folks here that have been feeling poorly lately plus a bunch of folks at the office that have been off (or at least should be off) because they're feeling poorly as well.  I hope I can dodge that bullet.

T.G.I.F! or, as Jamie would say, "Friday's are a wonderful thing!"   :D

I do have a some plans for this weekend but they shouldn't preclude any workbench time.  I've got a radio station to build!   ;)

Have a great one!

That's certainly better than any freight car weathering I've done so far Dr. Jeff.  But I haven't exactly set the bar very high (there's a reason I've never posted pictures of my attempts here) so you may mistakenly take that as an insult.   :P  :D  But please don't.  These look very nice!   :D  :D  :D

Morning all,

That's an awesome picture Dan!   :D  :D  :D  Love it.

I'm with Mark and Dave.  No modeling last night but one more day closer to the weekend.  Next week's a three day week for me except I'm off on Tuesday and Thursday so I have to go to work on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.   :P

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Dan, having the winter off to build those little vehicles would be nice wouldn't it.  I buy those little pink tickets every morning in the hope that I get to retire early so I can spend more time at the workbench.  So far that plan hasn't worked out too well.   :(

My queue of things to build is about at capacity.  I've got a FOS kit underway plus one FOS and two FSM's waiting to be built.  I do have some vacation planned for the latter part of December so that may help make a dent in things.  But it somewhat depends on what the better half wants to do during that time off.  ::)

Have a great one!

Morning all,

I did manage to get a little workbench time in last night.   :D  One of those rare (for me) weeknight sessions.   ;)

Congratulations to Mike on the birth of his grandson.   ;D

Have a great one!
