Hi All!
Thanks for the coffee! I brought sticky buns for a snack.
Actually got some fascia painted and test-stained some strip wood for the mine building. I think it's too dark so I will have to add more alcohol.
Cheers,
Dave

Morning, all!
Lovely weather here again. Just soaking it in!
Attended a lecture by Gwynn Dyer (Canadian award-winning Journalist) with the missus. Very interesting.
Hope you have productive weekends!
Cheers,
Dave

Hi all. I put a green bottle out for old times sake. I brought some small kits to the beach to work on if it rains. So far sunny and high seventies.

My current build:

Morning All, coffee is on and eggs, ham, home fries, and toast are in the warmer.

It's 62f and cloudy here in WV.

I'm going to relax and watch some train videos.

Have a great day all.

Hi Everyone - It is very quiet in the Lounge perhaps we need to stoke up the fire.
It is 6:15 am Tuesday here at the Museum in Ipswich and a chilly 8 degrees C outside. Nice and warm in the office though.
I am just brewing some fresh coffee and have hot scones with jam and cream for a snack.
Our Collection Manager arrived back yesterday from his overseas trip to the Greek Islands and already wishing he was back there still.
I am finalising an exhibition for the main Queensland Museum at Southbank featuring Gauge 1 and Gauge 0 model trains from a very large private collection. It is a big job with a great deal of paperwork and transfers of objects not to mention the object labels and text panels to be completed. I have one more model to select which will have to be HO Scale as the exhibition designers wish to display it on a 45 degree angle so will have to be relatively small and light (at least lighter than the Gauge 1 or 0 Gauge)
I have been gradually emptying my desk at work. It is amazing how many coffee cups you accumulate in 17 years.

David, Thanks for opening and getting coffee and scones on...!
Cleaning out an office is always bitter-sweet. Find anything long-lost?
I ended up converting a storage/ironing/server/office space to a bedroom which resulted in having to stack washer/dryer combo and put new shelves in the laundry cupboard. That earned me a day of motorcycling riding up Sea-to-Sky highway towards Whistler. Beautiful! didn't get any modelling done .....again!
Have a great day!
Cheers,
Dave

6:45 am Wednesday morning here at the Museum in Ipswich and another chilly 8 degree C morning. I have some freshly brewed coffee and hot water available for tea for those who prefer it.
I wouldn't mind a nip of Bundaberg Rum to help warm up the insides but that will have to wait until the weekend?
I have to update my catalogue list of rolling stock at home as I have been a bit slow following recent purchases. Needed for insurance purposes.
I had an inspector from the firm who recently installed security screens and doors throughout our house as I had found on the weekend that one of the doors could still be opened even when it was locked. He was not happy with the fellow who did the installation having to disassemble a couple of the doors and refit them.
No modelling done this week yet.

David, I guess you are moving into Winter, eh? I keep hoping Summer will show up, at some point.
Raining again today. Slow customer day. With the promise of a rainy week, the outlook isn't too favourable either.
Cheers,
Dave

Hi David - Yes, today is Thursday 1st June and its the first day of winter. It is just after 6:00 here at the Museum in Ipswich and it is a near freezing 2 degrees centigrade outside my office. The temperature where I live when I left home this morning was a positively balmy 12 degrees centigrade. It is only 40 km from my home in Brisbane to Ipswich - surprising what a temperature difference there is.
I have just made some fresh coffee and there is boiling water available for you tea drinkers. I have brought in some pancakes together with maple syrup and fresh cream as a snack. Just warm them up a little in the microwave.
I won't get anything done on the layout this weekend as I have a family appointment on Saturday (wife, myself, daughter, her husband and three grandsons) with a photographic studio to the value of $800 as a gift from the Toyota dealer following my purchase of a brand new 2017 Toyota Corolla Sport for my wife while I traded in my 2009 Hyundai Getz and have taken over Pauline's 2011 Toyota Corolla Ascent.
Sunday is also a wipeout as the son-in-law is coming over to put a concrete sealant on our 8 month old concrete driveway which just keeps powdering up.
I am still stressing about the track plan for our On30 layout. Am I squeezing in too much? Am I trying to build an empire when it should be much simpler? Have I left enough room for O Scale size buildings (I have a lot of kits to build but am still thinking in HO Scale)? And so on!!
Best Regards
