Looks like i'm opening so help yourselves to fried eggs, grilled tomatoes, hashbrowns, bacon, and coffee.
Bill, Congratulations on your 48th anniversary! That's fantastic!
Mark - 6000 posts - that's a milestone, for sure.
We have had two gorgeous days in a row here. Too bad I can't ditch work for a motorcycle ride.
Have a great day, all y'all!
Cheers,
Dave

Hi Everyone - It is 6:30 am Friday here at the Museum and the weather is quite cool. A shivering 4 degrees Centigrade.
At least the office is nice and warm .
I am probably a bit late for your breakfast offering David so I will have to prepare my own fried eggs, hash browns sausages and bacon. There is also fresh coffee and tea, so please join me. I can't have too much as I am trying to keep losing weight. I have lost 4 kg in the past few weeks and want to lose another 5 before heading off to the US in 8 weeks time for the NNGC in Denver.
Best Regards

Good morning everyone!
To quote the people of Washington state; "Hey, the sun is out! What did we do wrong?" After the storm passed we have some sunshine! It's 7:30am and the rain has ended, for now.
I guess I'll open up. There's French toast with butter and syrup, bacon and eggs too. Put on coffee, and water for tea. Milk is in the fridge along with some nestlse's quick. So everyone enjoy!!

I am reading Harry Brunk's "Up Clear Creek" for the third time. Just trying to digest some of his ideas to improve on some of my stuff.

I hope that Mark is getting better.
David across the pond: what equipment do you have At your museum? I am fasinated by UK RR items because of that little show, 'Thomas the tank engine". I'm a sucker ever since my kids used to watch it when they were little.

David Clark: how's your layout coming?

And where'd big lars get off to?

Good morning everyone,

It is a little late for breakfast, but I put the coffee on. If you prefer something stronger I put some tall cold ones on the fridge.

Sorry I haven't been on for a while but my wife was going through some serious health issues but the good news is she is on the recovery side and is expected to make a full recovery. I haven't done any modelling lately so nothing to report on that front.

Got a lot of catching up to do, have a great day everyone.

Ron: I hope your wife is on her way back to health!

This morning i just stopped by for a minute. Been busy cookin'cleanin' and taking care of the missus.

Cindy has gone, and the sun is out until midweek. Then the monsoon season starts back up. I am giving serious thought to moving to a drier climate, like Arizona, The Colorado western slope, or Moab Utah. The humidity in Moab in summer usually runs low, like Sun 20%. Except when it rains.

Hi Everyone - It is 6:30 am Monday here at the Museum in Ipswich with a quite cool 5 degrees centigrade outside, in the office about 24 degrees centigrade.
I have just brewed some coffee and provided boiling water for tea. There are also white chocolate muffins with cream on the counter. Please join me.
I only have 29 working days to go before I finish work. It could be less if I take any days off.
My son-in-law spent the day with me yesterday as we applied a concrete sealant on the front driveway to stop it from losing all he concrete dust and to bind the concrete. The only excitement we had yesterday was when I went to go into the T-Shed at the back of the house only to be confronted in the doorway by a 4 ft long Python (only tiny for a Python) who was quite feisty and tried to strike at me several times. Called in the snake catcher ($150 ) who came over about half an hour later. He arrived just in tie to catch it and put it in a bag. He was surprised at how aggressive it was as Pythons are usually fairly quiet. He got it to "stand up" ready to strike while he took some photos (the camera was only about a foot away). He was very happy saying how beautiful it was.
I hope things start to settle down now. I finished the chapter for the Institution of Engineers and posted it last Friday.
Best Regards

Good afternoon everybody!

It's a warm, humid day here. Got the A.C. on and just coolin' my heels.

Thanks, Mark, for the Danish and coffee. Don't really drink coffee, but, it was almost gone, so I refilled the pot.

Didn't do to much modeling today, as somehow I can't seem to locate my box of truck kits from San Juan cars. Looks like Friday I'll have to order more. Maybe I'll just go the RTR route. Saves my eyes.

Any way, everybody have a fine day. If its hot where you are, stay cool.

Fred.

P. S. Where's big lars been? Kind of worrying about him.
