Good morning. It should hit 55 in So. Wisconsin today and the yard ornaments will be re-installed from their Winter slumber,
but waiting till 1.

Since 3/11/2020 the car as of this morning has 131 miles on it. We have taken 3 Sunday drives of just over an hour each and
between 30-35 miles each. The other short driving hops have been to the pharmarcy and 3 grocery pick ups that are all in the
same place.

Be safe

Good morning everyone.

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

Partly sunny, then gradually becoming sunny, with a high near 64.

Karl, combining the dog and the bike would be a recipe for disaster.

Mike, bench time?

Jerry and Philip, did you wave when you passed each other joy riding?

Tom, isn't it ironic with gas being so cheap and there's no place to go.

Another day of puttering around the house.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning Rick.
Thanks for the coffee!

Gena is out making a provision run in mopp gear.

Looks like the numbers in NYC are dropping.
Hopeful for a conclusion to this horrible virus!

Good day!
Philip

Good morning from So. Wisconsin, the “Safer at Home” state is overcast and possible
rain at any moment. The daily walk is in jeopardy but after a beautiful Sunday I can say
90% of the outdoor landscaping is done. Thank goodness for a Bobcat that easily moves
mulch. I am however still sore because we both over did it. The other 10% is additional
yearly, annual, plantings that will not occur till at least the week before Memorial Day.

Enjoy your day and be safe
TomO

Sun and 30s this morning in the Palm of the Mitten. Looks pretty but you do need the mittens for sure.

Just finished a bowl of oats and raisins. Keep me at it ‘til later. Squirrels feasting on the bird seed are getting fat.

A few more miles on the rides here, but almost all have been afternoon cruise on the way back roads, been over lots of bumps. The Doll did a video chat with one of her kids and family last evening leaving me to watch a dopey 60s era Doris Day/James Garner movie based on the premise a wife missing 5 years shows up the afternoon after hubby has her declared dead and marries a nut case....adventure ensues...

Same ole same ole here today, warmer later may get me outside. The skin’s cracked on the thumbs from so much twiddling.

Good day all.

Good morning folks,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

I enjoyed bench time yesterday and hope for more today.

It's 62F now headed to 75F. Maybe some rain.

When the sun comes out this week, we hope to take a drive through bluebonnet country. Here is a recent picture from another artist.


Have fun and be safe,
Mike

Afternoon everyone

Rick thanks for opening.

I put on a fresh pot of coffee in case anyone else drops in.

Dog to the Vet this am for a heartworm test and meds for it.
Then we went to the beach there might have been 5 other people there.

So now were back home and maybe some time playing with trains. Unless the little lady finds something for me to do!! Oh joy!!

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

Good morning everyone.

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

Increasing clouds, with a high near 65.

Arthur, if you're still around please stop in and let us how you've been.

Mike, that's a beautiful picture.

Jerry, train time?

Karl, thanks for the review.

Tom, bet you're glad most of that work is done.

Philip, it would be nice if things were winding down.

Went to grocery store yesterday and they started limiting the number of people allowed in at one time.
Had to wait in line about 10 minutes.

Got the back yard mowed after cussing at the mower for not wanting to start right away.
Even the dog joined in with her barking at it.

Not sure yet what I'll do today.

Stay healthy and hunkered down and have a great day.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

It is finally going to be nice out today with no rain: 89F. I have a long list of yard tasks for the day.

Sounds like everyone is having some fun and finding ways of staying busy.

Have fun and be safe,
Mike

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Weather in South Jersey cloudy/52. Later P. sunny/62.

Mike that was a really nice picture.

Well no bench time yesterday. It was so nice out I did some yard work then sat on the front porch with a glass of wine soaking up the sun!

Maybe the same today if the weather holds.

Everyone have a great day!!

Good morning Rick and Crew. I am very happy most of the outside setup is done and I even put the furniture minus pillows on my deck outside my basically unused office. The last couple years during the summer If it was nice I could stay out there most of the day. Stay safe.

Upper 40s going to 60ish with rain this morning, SEVERE WEATHER forecast for later in the day. It should keep me inside, again.

I worked on the layout a bit yesterday then took a break, went to check on the Doll and got roped into hauling several scoops full of stuff out the the burn pile in the way back area by the woods. Among our limits in the Socialist State of Michigan, our Governess Gretchid has put a ban on burning. OK by me, I’m not ready to do any of that anyhow. Sunday night we had smog here, someone was burning, that made it wheezy to take the trash hopper out to the end of the driveway.

MAYbe I‘ll trek back to the layout later, breakfast is still unknown here at 10am.

Be safe and healthy everyone.

Afternoon! sounds like everyone is gamefully employed doing stuff.

Mowed and weed eated again yesterday. Picked up sticks/limbs and had 2 fires last night burning off the winter fallings.

Did a couple rows od shingles last night, was pooped.

Pressure washing today. Finished the shed and walks, plus the bird bath. Waiting on the hummingbirds, last year they showed up mid april.

A bit more pressure washing and that's it for me.

Have a great afternoon! Rain tonight!

Philip

Good morning everyone.

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

Had a T-storm roll through last night and still raining now and will do so off and on most of the day.
Rainy days and dogs are not a good combination.

The virus hit close to home yesterday.
One of our conductors passed away yesterday due to the virus.

Indoor activities only today.

Stay safe and healthy and have a great day everyone.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee. I am sad to hear of the conductor passing. Please accept my condolences.

High today projected at 94F and no rain. Outdoor activities are on the schedule. Maybe take the MG for a spin. I wonder if a mask will blow off with the top down.

Have fun and be safe folks,
Mike
