Good morning. Philip glad you are ok after you found the cat. Rick, thanks for getting us going, sounds like you are still doing ok. They are paying you for staying home, right?
Lousy looking overcast day here in So. Wisconsin, we will try to walk between the falling raindrops.

Have a safe day
TomO

Bright sun but frost in the shadows at first get up today. Going to get to 60, itís said. Finish taking off the snow blower if Iím able. Bad thing about this Ďquarentineí stuff. Canít recruit able bodied younger help. Son is frantic/panicked over this all. Love to have him do some things but heís been working right up until the last day or so and in and out of areas Iíd not like to be exposed to.

Tired out after working on the snowblower yesterday...sure feel old.

Well,not to let the beauty of the day waste......later all. Be well.

Good morning everyone.

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

A slight chance of showers before 9am. Cloudy, with a high near 58.

Hi Kris.

Mike, did you get your white glue fix?

Jerry, cabinets look like new.
They were white before weren't they?

Tom, yes we're supposed to get paid.
When is another question.
My understanding is there's only one person left working in payroll and there's usually about a dozen.
Crew callers have been working from home and are very hard to get ahold of.
Glad I don't work the list.
Place is a mess.

Karl, don't over do it.

Another quiet day planned for here today.

Stay healthy and hunkered down and have a great day.

Good morning from So. Wisconsin where I have not looked out the windows or read the weather. We had a pick up dinner at the closest restaurant to us where we usually go for Friday night fish fry at least twice a month. While I prefer shrimp the cut down menu of the fried cod was excellent as was Terryís baked walleye. Generally the choices are more with 3 different shrimp, perch and blue gills but they shortened the menu but as our first non home prepared meal since 3/11 it was great.

A pharmarcy run for Terry this morning and the staff and pharmacists are now wearing face shields per the email we got. I spoke yesterday with a local police officer who parked his cruiser by our gate, asked if he wanted coffee and she said yes. Took it down to her, she said they have less crimes, less speeders due to few folks on the road but last week had more domestic calls then normal. I hope thatís not a trend.

Thanks Rick for getting us going, thatís tough when payroll staff is short and glad you feel good. Jerry, those cabinets look good. Karl, good luck on the blower, I looked at mine and decided, it can wait. It is easy to tell someone to relax but we are all different so tell the son, 1 day at a time we will make it.

Be safe
TomO

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Jerry, the cabinets look great. Nice job.

Cold and rain today with high of 47F. Yuk.

I am so far behind that it will take more than one day to get a good glue fix. Alas, I am patient.

Have fun,
mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Yes the cabinets were white we re did them with a different paint thats suppose to harden an not chip.

Not sure what we are doing today. Not that we have many choices so maybe time at the bench.

Be safe everyone.

And everyone have a wonderful day!!

Snow blower is finally I off and the front bucket is on. That was as easy as the easy attach snow blower wasnít. I have one of those drive up and over mowing decks but not really planning on using that much. Have a zero turn mower I had all gone over last fall for mowing. The snow blower issue was lack of familiarity and terrible to non existing instructions in the manual. Plus weight of a couple components.

Took a sight seeing cruise for a couple hours yesterday.

Not surprised about the increased domestics, TomO. Even a hard moment here and there in the best of relationships in this state of status quo.

Good day all. Be well.

Philip, it's nice of that man to help out with those masks.

Karl, congrats on the snow blower.

Sun and 30 degrees in MI. May get up around 50 +- today.

No plans, just better day to deal with things when it is sunny.

Rick, bike riding with a hi energy dog must be exciting.

Everyone be well.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

It's still cold and cloudy here at 48F, but finally warming to 68F later today. Maybe rain.

Hoping for more time at the bench. I sure would like to finish JoeB's dining car, soon.

Have fun and stay safe,
Mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Weather in South Jersey cloudy/56. Later on P. sunny/64 so say the "Weather Weenies" will see.

Maybe a drive somewhere today just to see what's going on at least it gets out of the house!

Everyone have a great day!!
