Morning all,

Got a little workbench time in last evening.  Maybe I can squeeze a little in on my lunch hour today.

Big meeting today about the reopening of our office next week.  At first returning to the office will be voluntary.  I'm waiting to be voluntold.   ;) 

Have a great one!

Morning all,

Nothing going on here.  No workbench time yesterday.   :( 

Have a great one!

I feel kind of bad for being the cause of a track relocation project in Tahpoe.   :(  Lowering the height of the base shouldn't be too bad.  The only tricky spot is beneath the pole behind the garage because of the wires that run down the back of the pole for the light. 

And that FOS Apartment complex is just the Bomb!  How do you get so lucky in having people show up with gifts like that for your railroad?  Are you sure your not putting a little extra something in their "Diet Pepsi?"

Diet Pepsi wouldn't have done it Bruce.  I was a Diet Coke man for many years but kicked that habit a few years back.  Now it's mostly water, unsweetened iced tea and a few things with a bit more of an edge to them.   ;)  I did get a jar of great salsa in return for the apartment building.   ;D

Onto Monday now. Always the worst day of the week in my books!

The first five days after the weekend are always the hardest!   ;D

Morning all,

Yes, the forum went down last night.  The one and only on-line presence I have and I wasn't there.   :D

I did get some workbench time in over the weekend.  Fixed a few boo boos I made on the current build and made a little forward progress.

Have a great one!

Morning all,

I need to dust off my apron and see if I can recall how to make crab cakes later on today for my better half's Mothers Day dinner.  I'll still have time to squeeze in a little workbench before hand.   ;)

Have a great one!

Nice work on both!  I really like the change you made to the Bud's Bait and Gas by opening up the one side.  That makes it a unique little structure.

Morning all,

I can't wait until I can say I have a hard time remembering which day of the week it is.  Rest assured, I know today is Saturday.   ;)   Maybe / probably / hopefully a little workbench time this afternoon.   ;D

Have a great one!

Happy Birthday Bill!

I squeezed an airbrush session in yesterday during my lunch hour. 

I'm not sure how much longer I'll be working from home.  Our office is officially reopening on May 17th to those that want to volunteer to return to the office.  I expect management will find the number of volunteers willing to go back to the office to be disappointingly low.  ::)

Have a great one!

I just placed an order.  I'll let you know when it arrives.   :D

Now I have rails, spikes, homasote, homasote roadbed, ties and track laying tools.  All I need now is a plan and some bench work.   ;D

Morning all,

Happy Anniversary to Jim & Deb!  :)

I hit the ground running with work stuff this morning as soon as I fired up the old PC.  Just getting to check in now during a training class.  Nothing happening on the workbench front.

Have a great one!

Morning all,

I second that motion Opa George!  A margarita machine would greatly improve things at work.  If not, at least it would make things more interesting.   ;D

Nothing accomplished on the workbench front yesterday.   :(

Have a great one!

I think I'm going to have to order some of that to give it a try.  Thanks for the heads up and the link!   :D

Morning all,

I snuck a little airbrush session in over my lunch hour yesterday to prime some parts (including the two replacement windows for my Marshall's Boat and Gas build).  One of the benefits of working from home.  ;)

Have a great one!

In that last picture the retaining wall colors really look spot on.  Well done!   ;)
