    Good morning folks

    It is some odd weather this morning. Temperature was 56 F as I rolled onto the road. Our high will be 67 F. We are under a Flood Watch since we are expecting heavy rain later tonight.

    My daughter went to the doctors and had her foot X-rayed. Nothing was broken just a bad sprain. She is getting around on the crutches.

    I have a busy morning at work this morning. We are conducting project safety reviews. We have two streetscape projects and these things are usually nightmares. The consultants have no clue how to design a DOT project and follow criteria. Most of these guys are local municipal engineers and they are used to being god. No one checks them and they make up the rules as they go along. There is a certain amount of satisfaction to watch as their egos get deflated. The third project is a bridge rehab designed by a consultant who has done a bunch of work for us so it should go smoothly. I have to run to the Scout Store and pick up a couple of things that I discovered last night we don’t have for the Blue & Gold Banquet on Saturday.

    I tidied up the layout some last night. I was going to do a photo session with the TOFCs I just finished weathering but I am having problems with my portable background. As the more and more of the layout is getting sceniked the more trouble I am having with the poster board I have for a portable sky. I have an old bed sheet but I am having trouble find ways to hang it in different areas.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Mikey, congratulations! :thumb:

    I think I missed a day here, a lot to read.

    It was a beautiful day yesterday got up to 65 but pretty windy, I worked outside my wood shop doing some work with the skill saw that I did not want to do inside and make all that sawdust. Got the back of my head sunburned in the process. It is raining now, but still warmer than normal.

    I am definitely getting older, last evening after working outside for a couple of hours, I could hardly get out of my recliner. :mrgreen:

    Got 3 granddaughters and their mom coming for lunch in a little while, I will be entertaining while she has an appointment.

    Spanky, That is a very nice mountain scene.

    I think I am just about past that diaper changing thing. Youngest grand child is 1 1/2 and hopefully about out of the diaper stage.

    Good Morning. It was in the high 60s when I came in at 8. Hope it stays on the warm side for a bit. Been raining quite a bit and heavy winds. It was about a year ago that the hospital up the street got demolished by a tornado. They have really pulled together and are starting to build a new facility. The Feds and state did a good job of constructing a temporary hospital, but we still get a lot of extra work from them. All the deliveries are done here.
    I did a little looking at CTT the other day, but mostly stay away. Just checked SPF. A shame as I have gained much knowledge over there and respect Bob K. I just refuse to put up with a few spoilers.
    Well, Hope everyone has a great day and that you'all are blessed.
  13. Don Baker.......... I got the DVDs today. Thanks a lot.
    They look great. There are 12 of them.
    I hope the DVD player, you sent, will be here soon. I am having a hard time seeing them thru the microscope....per your instructions.sign1

    Thanks again,

    Morning all. Got flu from the bride. Even cancelled my class for tonight. Everyone has it except our middle boy - who is proverbially holding the fort. Don't often get sick. Hope this all passes soon.

    Got my Digitrax decoders today. The FedEx van showed up just as I was coming into the driveway. I'll see if I can install them sometime this week.

    Doug: Sorry to hear your sick. Prayers for you and your family's survival with the kids running the house. Looks like a pizza night.

    Well Doug, and all you others...I have finally succumbed to your rantings, and the pressure to win on that confounded online auction site. Looks like I am the proud owner of a 0-6-0 Docksider, in Alaska colors. I was hoping for Lionel Lines, but the price was too good to pass up. $70 delivered.

    Making out a parts list for the crane...still trying on the paint. It may end up with the Krylon.

    Hope everyone has a nice evening.

    HI GIZ and GAL,
    Big time rain here this afternoon. Took dog for her bath er walk she got soaked, maybe I'll invent a dogie umbrella? Anyway she needed a bath and I had the honor of toweling her dry. Only walked a mile but seemed farther today.
    DOUG, hope all is well with the flu? Have a shot of ROCK and RYE, make you feel like million bucks tomorrow.
    DENNIS I too am staying away from CTT. Only post on weekends and if asked to comment on a thread. It is a shame that a few people screw a good thing up.
