Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

I'm slow getting around this morning, but need to head to the airport soon.

Yesterday was 51 years for Sharon and I. How time flies.



Have fun this weekend,
Mike

Mike congrats on 51 years, great picture.

It is cool in So. Wisconsin at 22f degrees. Terry is out in 3 greenhouses overseeing (staying out of the way) of the loading of
3000 Poinsettias sold to a software company as Thanksgiving presents to their management staff. Every bit of space in the
greenhouses since September 1 has been dedicated to this project. She has 2 orders of 1000 each for Xmas then she will
sit down with her team and decide if this is worth it. Between these things and the separate greenhouse growing the hydrophonic
tomatoes the team of 4 have been steadily busy. She also gets a steady stream of UW Ag interns who rotate each
semester. Her team of 4 are previous interns and they claim they love working for Terry.

Nothing planned for me today except a ride on the ATV after it warms up. Then the trainroom. My moments of thought are mostly at the
4AM wake time and sometimes even fruitful, but not this one! I decided to add another building, bleach, with assorted tanks and pipes
to the Paper Mill. At this rate the Mill will never get done or the other side of the layout. Why add, no clue but I like the big building, 8”wide,
13” deep and 18” high. It is mocked up but it has messed up my fiber optic lighting project that was almost done in the mill.

Enjoy your day

Good morning from So. Wisconsin where only the contrails mess up the clear blue skies. It is 32f degrees heading to 45, hopefully a nice day. Thanks Rick
for opening, the sodas and the Paper Mill comment. I would post it here but my iPads and this forum don’t seem to mix. I Can post using a Windows based
Laptop but my wife’s died and really no need to replace it. I am on FB mainly at Model Railroad Shelf Layouts, but can be found on too many others.

The granddaughter will be here at 11 as her brother’s kids only b-day party is heading to a sports complex for 3 hours. Harper does not like to participate
and prefers to play with grandma and ride the horses. That’s their day mine will be in the train room. Enjoy your day.

Hey another coffee Thanks.

Hovering at freezing despite a forecast warmup, the snow on the grass can’t decide what to do with the freezing rain.

Modules clear in the trainroom, boxcar parts ready. Trying to not get distracted by bashes in progress.

Enjoy your day all,

That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

TomO, that's a lot of flowers. Wow!

It's 50F on the Gulf, forecast for 60F. The Gulf is calm, so dolphin pod watching should be fun this afternoon.

Rick, Jerry, TomO, thanks for the anniversary comments. Amazing how time flies. Here is a photo after all those years:



Stay warm and have fun,
Mike

Mike, she still looks better then you.

The poinsettias turned out to be more work then the tomatoes. They need to figure a way to automate the planting process and we are working on that. One of Terry’s employee is a Engineering professor at UW and 2 grad students are working on a couple things. I get to build the testing devices. Funny that 3000 management staff get them, there is 1 manager per 3 worker bees.

Coffee please, Thanks!
Morning all,..clouds are yielding to sun, close to fifty today..
Avoided distractions and did well on the door guide stuff...
Was toast after that. No scrap parts is a win.

Midday to PT to get stretched on their rack.


Have a great day all,

That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Tom, indeed...good luck with a better process.

Paul, it's funny that the rack used to be for torture and now we pay for the pleasure...

It's another beautiful day in Biloxi.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning from a state in mourning after the Packers for the second time this year in California should have stayed on the plane. Embarrassed for the second time per my spouse who is avid. I watched 5 minutes of TV yesterday and that was Dallas and New England the end of that game. Most of yesterday was inThe train room painting, including game time when I could hear Terry talking loudly at the TV upstairs.

Rick whic h Facebook page are you seeing the Paper Mill? The greenhouses are a longgggg story but they are Terry’s unless she needs my help, just like the horses. The Poinsettas started out a couple years ago as just a goof around to see if they could do it. The purchasing manager at the software company has a daughter in our granddaughter’s choir and they got to talking last year abou buying some. It just happened, not sure if it will continue but they did turn quite a few jobs away.

I are heading to the hobby space.
Tom
