Good morning!  Everybody sleeping in today?  Cool but sunny here this morning.  Running out to get some breakfast with my better half, then running some errands.  Hope to get some train time in later today.  Be safe!

Morning Mark and others,

I was here but reading the other posts and getting caught up on forum threads.

Otherwise, I have nothing news worthy.

Have a great day ya'll.

Morning,

The police here have been given the authorization to stop question why you are outside and fine you if you are not going for food doctor or essential work. Much like it was in Mongolia in the 1980s.

Morning all.

Don’t be happy.

Be safe. Think about your thoughts before you have them.

The thought police might fine you.

Good Morning;

Well looks like Heavy thunderstorms today. We have a frontal boundary sitting on top of us literally. Marty, I seriously hope you were kidding. I work at museum today then cleaning up layout.

Hope you have a great day.

Good morning! More moving stuff on the agenda for me, today. My brother and I are still cleaning out my mother's house so we can sell it. This is not an easy task, my friends. I hope to get back to finishing my challenge build next week.  Better late than never. :-[ ;)  I hope everyone has a great day.

NMRA Seacoast spring meet (zoom) starts in a bit, I'm the second speaker today.  I'll show how I use PowerPoint (!!) to design structures.

John, you have my best wishes for endurance in your work. I was the executor of my step-father's estate and he consoled himself while my mother was ill and especially after her passing with "collecting."  He had rooms filled with boxes of collectibles, with only a path through, plus an outdoor shed filled to the roof. We hired a top-notch antiques auctioneer to clean out the house and sell it.  For our situation, it was a good decision.

Still, we spent months cleaning, doing yard work, etc to keep the place in shape till the auction.

Take care,

Afternoon all,

Put a prior build back on the workbench to fix/redo something I simply wasn't happy with.  More on that when I resurrect that particular build thread.

I do feel for you John.  Cleaning out my mothers room at the assisted living facility was a tough enough task but nowhere near a house sized effort.  Hang in there and use the time you do get to spending modeling or even thinking about the layout as therapy. 

Have a great one!
