Good morning everyone

I started a fresh pot of coffee.
And we have breakfast homemade waffles with butter and Vermont Maple syrup. Sides of bacon & sausage.

Weather in South Jersey sunny/41.

If you left anything behind you better get it out of the old place.

I started a fire in the fireplace God it smells good in here.

Let's try to keep it clean.

Everyone have a wonderful day!!

This was mt good morning post from the old lounge:

Good morning everyone.

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

Sunny, with a high near 56.

Weird starting the day in a nearly empty lounge.
I'll grab the big screen on my way out.
When someone gets a chance to open the new place I'll lock this one up.

Tom, got point about sterilizing the lounge.
I'll have to find a box of masks and gloves too.

Karl, glad the S period was short.

Philip, that must of been a really horrible place to work.

I called work yesterday and told them my quarantine period is up.
Now I need to wait for medical to call me and give their OK.
The earliest they'll is Monday so I have at least another 3 days off all paid.

Stay healthy and hunkered down and have a great day.

Good morning, gimme a chair, by the door...tried to get my foot in the door earlier but the hinges froze and I couldnít continue my post.

If other folks had the problem I did no wonder itís empty. The new coat of KILZ and antiseptic spray give this a doctorís office atmosphere. Letís get some sausage and eggs going and make it more like home.

One of the girls is on the way with a fresh supply of victuals and weíll have a wave thru the window. 9 am and the store was nearly To totally wiped out of a couple of our stateless, but they found most everything. NO direct contact with humans in 3 1/2 weeks is tiring. Our governess is really got some folks out of joint with her latest dictatorial decrees from the Statehouse steps, and her repeated apppearances on TV trying to boost her Biden appeal....looking at the Mackinaw Bridge web cam this am, unbelievable, 10 am on a Sat am and 1 car and a semi tanker truck...

Iím trying to 3d a ballast spreader but my drawing skills are horrible. Will get something going today sometime.

Friend in FL is hysterical over restrictions there, still doesnít ďget itĒ. I do, just grumble a lot.

OK, long winded today....later...go play with your trains...

Good morning, new digs,

thanks Jerry!

So Rick your off work? Didn't see the post where they quarantined you.

Yes it was Rick, one of my co-workers may have covid and has a pacemaker. Not good. Another young man in his 20's is in isolation with no underlying health problems. Time will tell. Scary times!

Good morning and thanks everyone for helping Rick with the new lounge. Glad I moved that stack of firewood, good exercise! I love a real fire in the fireplace, every FP at home is gas, even the fire pit on our deck is gas. Not complaining.

Weather in So. Wisconsin will be wet. Our state government is already fighting about taking the restrictions off when the mandate ends in 2 weeks. The one party even saying we won in court over the elections we will win again. The flattened in curve in Wisconsin means nothing to these guys.

Have a great safe day

Good morning folks,

Jerry, thanks for the hearty breakfast.

Rick, thanks for coffee. I hoe you enjoy your paid vacation.

It's nice out and headed to 73F. Bad nasties hit after lunch. Thunderstorms, tornadoes, etc.

I finally finished wiring the pet fence. It was tricky to get it into the house and connected to the control box. I was testing it, and it shocked me. I am thinking I could have some fun around the house with that thing...

The power connector to my new laptop won't stay connected and won't charge the battery. What a PITA. I'll need to mail it to Dell. #@!$!$

Have fun and be safe,
Mike

Good morning everyone.

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

Partly sunny, with a high near 69.

Happy Easter!

Mike, congrats on the fence and I got zapped once with the collar and I don't need to experience it again.

Tom, I worry about them lifting restrictions too soon.

Karl, what kind of problems are you facing?
Other than pages loading slowly some times things have been working OK for me.

Jerry, thanks for getting the new place open.

Bike ride this morning then take the dog for a walk.
I'll spend most of the day outside since it's supposed to be nice.

Stay healthy and hunkered down and have a great day.

Morning everyone

Rick thanks for opening and the coffee.

Happy Easter to everyone!

Weather wise South Jersey is sunny/55. Later 67!!

I haven't been to the bench in over a month. I keep trying but ever since the paint job i just can't get back into it.

The only thing I've done is stain wood for an HO model kit I bought a long time ago.

Everyone have a great day!!

Grey ugly day in the Michigan reformatory. Temp moderately chilly outside with big winds in forecast the next 36 hours.

Rick,sometimes things just lock up and won't move. Submit Reply and then............................ It also appears my proof reading is suffering, too, sorry but I'm really not as dumb as some of my posts sound.

Easter greetings to one and all. Hopefully all are well and continue to be so. Lockdown is tiring.

I did get the base for my ballast spreader figured out, some more drawing later today to see where it goes.

Great day all.

Happy Easter morning from wet So. Wisconsin. Rick, I worry about restrictions being removed too soon but our economy does need to be restarted. I would think smart level headed minds could work out a solution but when it comes to Politicians none of that matters. We need tests but...

A family Zoom meeting at 2. This is the longest time between family meetings in 11 years and the 1st online meeting. Itís not the same as in person but better then nothing. Our normal get togethers are every 90 days. Have a safe day.

Good morning everyone.

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

Lots of tain and wind today.

Philip, Happy Anniversary and thanks for the picture.
Always nice to be able to put a face with a name.

Tom, completely agree with you about getting the economy going again.
But I think there's a huge risk of damaging the economy and peoples confidence by relaxing restrictions too early.
Tough decisions to be made and I hope they will be right.

Karl, I've had that happen a few times too.
Using the back button on the browser has allowed me to not have to rewrite my post a second time a number of times.

The weather will keep me inside today which is OK since there are things that need to be done inside.

Stay healthy and hunkered down and have a great day.

Good morning,

Rick, thanks for coffee.

Happy Anniversary, Philip,

It's cool out today at 59F but sunny skies.

Going to start training the dog with the fence today. It should be interesting.

Not sure what the day holds, think I will play it one hour at a time.

Have fun an be safe,
Mike

Rain overnight and forecast for high winds today in MI make for another lovely day in solitary.

3d printed a ballast spreader yesterday, have to try it out later today.

46 years, Philip and Mrs. Philip, a terrific accomplishment. Iíll never reach that as I hit the reset button at 25 the first time around and now going on 19 on the reboot.

Everyone have a good day. Prayers for our Southern folks that had such a terrible storm added on the quarantine.

Be healthy and safe.
