Hi Folks,
Been a while but life is busy here. House on the market for almost a week. Not a ton of visits but have someone coming back for a second look. Ideally, get new jobs on Vancouver Island and move there to our forever-house. It's a bit of a juggle to get things to fall into place to match that dream.
Philip, congratulations on pending retirement! I only did 20 years with the army but get some pension - the Government pays me to stay home - what does that say?
Rick, thanks for coffee and joy for Friday.
Tom, 43 years! That's awesome. Congratulations to you and Terry.
Cheers,
Dave

David, thank you, yes 43 years but they have been mostly great. As to your forever-house, no such thing. Since 2014 when I retired after 34 years in 1 house we are now on our 3rd in 5 years of a forever house.

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Diet Dr Pepper are ready to go.

Temps are dipping into the 40's at night and thoughts of flannel shirts and sweat pants are starting to creep in.
But the sun will shine brightly later and get the temps back into the low 70's.

Jerry, hope Diane's eye exam went well.
Give her a hug for me.

Tom, happy anniversary!

Philip, I'm planning on retiring in 3 years when I reach 65.
Hope you're retirement comes sooner than later and thanks for stopping into the lounge.
We'd love to see you more regularly.

Mike, 94 doesn't sound like much of a cooling.

Dave, good lock with the home sale and move.

Indoor bike ride first then the usual grocery shopping and meal prep.
Not sure what I'll do later.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Ham an cheese omelets, hashbrowns, bacon and toast are on the counter.

Cool today at 90F. Finally. Rick, 104 vs 94, cooler.

Working this morning at lodge, then bench, then Texas Western tonight. It's a fun day I think.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning from a So. Wisconsin that is about to be really really wet. We can hear the T-storms and the darkness to the Southwest is definitely coming our way. At least 1.5” maybe up to 3” over the 3 hour length the storm is expected to be visiting us.

My Paper Mill is around 70% complete until yesterday. I willl be re-arranging things due to Walthers b-day discount I received. My wife even though we celebrated 43 years of marriage yesterday has declared me more insane then ever. Her comment was something like—you are so proud of ur mill why change it? Must be the model railroader in me, nothing is ever complete and change is good.

Off to Milwaukee during our storm to watch the Brewers under the roof.

Enjoy your day
Tom

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee and Mike for the breakfast.

Weather in South Jersey a little chilly this am sunny/49. Later on 70.

Not a beach day for sure.

Rick Diane is going to have surgery to fix her lower eye lid in October.

Now yesterday from 8:30 to 1:00 we spent in the emergency room with our neighbor who had a stroke. We drove her.
It does not look like she is going to make it.
If she did she would be hospitalize for the rest of her left. Plus she lost the sight in one eye from it.
She's 87 and wants to move on her words.

Everyone have a great day!!

Jerry

Congratulations Tom!

Still hot.

I have absolutely nothing on the calendar today, so hoping for some bench time

Good morning from humid So. Wisconsin. Yesterday’s predicted deluge of rain missed us. Per the weather gauges we got .84” which is fine, other areas per TV got 6” or more in a few hours. Asked my son via text was he surviving the rains. He said Austin, Texas hasn’t had rain since late May and desperately need some, but not the way Houston got globbered.

The daily walk is now 3 miles as the SIL has been connecting the trail system. He has had a great time playing with his small bull dozer, backhoe and dump truck. He has 4 guys cutting up the trees that have fallen across the trails which has almost been full time this summer. Today, I am going to re-do a 2’ of ballast/weathering I missed a couple weeks ago. I posted a picture of my finished pulp yard on a FB group and it was pointed out what I missed on the track.

Enjoy your day
Tom

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and Diet Dr Pepper are ready to go.

Summer is making a comeback with lots of sunshine and upper 80's.

Tom, congrats on the extra miles. [:-thumbu]

Mike, nothing wrong with empty calendars.

Was Jerry at the bench?

Have a great day everyone.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for the coffee.

Weather here in South Jersey sunny/67. Later 84.

No beach yesterday we had errand to run and today we have company.
So maybe tomorrow we will be on the beach.

I did manage to paint the main parts to the Fordson so maybe later on I can start to glue it together.

Everyone have a great day!!

Jerry

Good morning. It maybe a wet day or not per the weather guy on TV. We were heading for the walk when the daughter said they were on their way. Seems they forgot to tell us we are watching the grand kiddos while they go to the Badger/Michigan game. Good for them the weather and my sister messed up this weekend as we were to be in. Chicagoland.

Not sure what is in store but we already made the trek to the donut shop, that was great xcellent! The g/s makes excellent choices for donuts. Enjoy your day, Mario cart is calling.

Tom

Retiring at 65 is a definite killer on any SSI income. Better to wait until 67+/68 or what ever age that SS dictates to get your best return. Unless you can wait until that age before making a claim with SS and live off a pension.
But definitely file for Medicare at age 65 or else you'll get hit with a surcharge forever more.
