Good evening.

I'd have a drink Tom but quit last year as the reaction to mixing all with my meds didn't agree with me. The doctors office called today about the MRI.
I have a bulging disc between L4 & L5. 20 years in the Army and then another 25 in construction has caught up with me. I'll be fine as my folks would say grit your teeth!

I'll throw another log or 2 on when I leave.

Managed to work on the sander today for about four hours, what a PIA! Good Evening!

Philip

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Showers likely, mainly before 1pm. Cloudy, with a high near 59.

Happy St. Patty's Day

Tom and Philip, thanks for keeping the lounge nice and warm.
I'll toss on a few more logs for the rest of the crew shuffling in later.

Philip, your sander looks real good.

I sent Paul an email last week and I heard from him over the weekend.
He's fine, just been busy.

Going to hit the grocery store this morning and see if there's anything left to buy.

Hope everyone remains healthy and safe and have a great day.

St. Patty's Day Greetings from grey Michigan. After the nice anti-virus we had yesterday I thought I'd add my new shirt to the mix of attempts to stay healthy and in good humor.


Lots of supplies to keep my hobby genes supplied, no place to go, everything is pretty much shut down except some places have take out food. Thought of a run to the Yoop but realized there is no place to eat up there save a Hardy's and a Booger King and the look at the Big Mac bridge Cam last night looked uninviting.

Stay home and hunker....think Green....

Be Safe, healthy and thankful for good health at this point in the crisis... no beer for me, either=

Later guys!!!

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee. How were the trains yesterday?

Philip, the sander is looking good. Persist!

Karl, fun shirt and apropos.

It's 65F now and fog, rain and 75F later.

No idea what the day holds in store, but may get a pedicure!

Have fun,
Mike

Karl, thanks for the pic and love the shirt.

Should of mentioned in my earlier post about what's going on at work.
Basically the trains are empty.
My first train in the AM was a little busy because I take a lot of construction works and Amtrak employees to NY.
They can't work from home.
My second east bound into NY was a different story.
That train by the time we get to Newark is standing room only.
Yesterday the last three cars I was in maybe had a combined total of 50 people.

just got home from grocery shopping and the first store I went to was void of any meats of any kind.
Got luck at the second stop and found some ground beef.
I'll be OK for a week or two and hopefully by then things will have normalized a bit.

Continue having a great day.

Good evening. The day moved a lot quicker then yesterday. Have a Skype visit with my doctor on Friday. They are starting to move all future appointments
at our healthcare system. The walk today was much nicer then the last few days, the sun was out and shining nicely. No Tuesday at the theater even though
our theater is still open. We were planning a 5:10pm showing of something online but we both took a nap. Terry had me help her trim down the tall grasses
we have in the landscaping. That must have worn us out.

Good evening I hope everyone had an enjoyable St. Patricks day!

Nice shirt Karl! Good advise.

How's the nails Mike? Never had a pedicure.

Rick, Scary times but mission essential. Thank you!

Was a nice evening chatting with my next door neighbor.

I'll fill the stove on the way out.
Good night.

Philip

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Sunny, with a high near 56.

Philip, thanks for keeping the place warm.

Tom, a nice walk and a nap sounds great.

Jerry, hope you got good news from the doc.

Mike, are the toes looking tip-top?

Ordered a new collar for the dog last week that is supposed to help with keeping the dog from pulling.
Got it yesterday and took it out for a test run.
Worked like a charm. Zero pulling and she didn't jump on my neighbor when I stopped to talk with him.
Going to the park later and see how that goes.
Bike ride first though.

Stay safe and healthy and have a great day.

Good morning Rick and Crew. White stuff just stopped falling and we have about 2Ē of heavy stuff. Good thing it should be 45 this afternoon.
Interesting on the walk yesterday we passed 4 others walking we said hi and kept moving. Our property is posted as private property. My SIL
today will check the fence line by ATV and drone. We are fenced because of the horses and when they come back this weekend we donít want
any getting out.

Have a save day

Some sun, sort of hazy, and chilly. Rain in the area later, maybe. Itís one of those could be days on the forecast. The theme song of the day is ďMaybe, Baby..Ē by who ever sang that.

Took a little ride yesterday but stuck close and didnít venture out of the car. A friend of the Doll said the credit union she goes to had no lobby service and a line around the block for the one window that was open. Got to the front and they denied her service because she didnít have the right documentation with her. My son at the auto repair shop said they had 6 appointments for repairs and were all no-shows.

Watched Dancing with Wolves on the tv last night. Been quite awhile since Iíd seen it and itís nice to be elderly so you forget stuff. Makes more sense of recycling...í

Not sure on todayís plans. Fiddling with SD40T-2 parts, sure are lots and they have treeny tiny holes they fit in, or not, with repainted areas. Real easy to fowl up all the hard work forcing the issue where they are.

Thatís it from an undisclosed secure bunker in the Maple Valley. Sap buckets are out all over and Ďsugaringí is in full swing.

Good morning again. Karl, Michigan collectors are still using buckets for sap? In the progressive state of which I live they are using
Plastic collection bags with tubing attached to run to a central collection unit. The maple syrup process is a slow one and nothing
something I would enjoy! I was hoping for another shirt today.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Today's high is 80F, but still overcast and rainy.

Mom decided to skip the pedicure, so I decided to do my own feet like I have forever. I took Mom once before to the pedicure place, and it was wonderful. They massaged my feet and calves, removed callouses, and coated them in hot wax. The experience was pretty good...

Mom and me at my first pedicure years ago. It was not an emasculating experience.

Have fun,
Mike

Good morning everyone.

Coffee, hot water for tea and a variety of cold sodas are ready to go.

Rain before 2pm, then a slight chance of showers after 5pm. Patchy fog before 11am. High near 58.

Mike, thanks for the great picture.

Got bumped again yesterday.
Fortunately there was another daytime job I could get.
Now have Thur. and Fri. off.

Breakfast and then a bike ride.
Who knows what after that.

Where's Jerry?

Have a great day everyone.
