    Wow, reclinerized too long. Did catch the last of 11 PM weather with a threat of what???? Suppose to be warm and sunny for a few days and then might drop below freezing!!!! What, it is past frost time for this part of NC. Did that last year and killed all the peaches in NC. Big crop loss. My peach tree has little peaches forming and apple tree is in full bloom. Better not. Well, just might hold off on planting squash, cucumbers and tomatoes in garden until next week. Off to the real bed. Later.

    Finally raked yard, took most of the day...not sore today! Hopefully some train time today!

    No dessert here...Just Guiness extra stout. I guess that counts. Maybe Sir James has some leftovers from the Harum Party!

    Good morning folks

    It was 43 F as I hobbled to work this morning. High will be 59 F. The foot with the bone spur has not been kind to me the last few days. While the severity and intensity of the pain has gone down, I now have a constant ache. I am not sure which is worse; the ache or the short burst of intense pain. Amputation with a plastic butter is beginning to sound more and more viable. I can’t wait unit Monday when I can finally see the Foot and Ankle doctor.

    No modeling last night. We had Cub Scout Roundtable. Tonight does not look good either with flute lesson and Cub Scout den meetings.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Morning all. Grey and cold here though supposed to get into the fifties through the end of the week - then snow (!). Hope they're wrong. My turn to host our virtual gathering tonight - everyone welcome - how about large chocolate chip cookies and an assortment of ice-cold beers?

    David, I appreciate your insights on the Type 20. I wonder what its story is. I love learning about British railways of all eras.

    Good morning, been real busy. Already onto 7th case. I had one of the Ortho guys check my thumb. If it is not better in the next few days, may have him work on it. Don't want that as it would put me out of commission. Weather wise, it is supposed to head to low 80s today and by Friday, it should hit about 87. I guess all you Ohio guys have been holding back the cold for us...thanks.
    I may take up an offer for a dreyfus hudson with 4 passenger cars. I will see if we can float that by SWMBO. Anyway, I hope everyone has a blessed day.

    Sir James, great report! You must be doing something right. I have nothing planned for tonight. If they leave me alone, I will spend some precious time with the family and then get to bed early. Don't dare go to church or any other plans when I am on call, that is asking for trouble.
    Hope you are all having a great day.

    I hope I made all my mistakes on the first one found that some of boards where warped and twisted, needed to shim a couple of places on legs to keep them as square as possible but all in all not too shaby for being engineered as I went along tools used 1" hole bit??? to countersink bolt head and washer 3/8" bit for shaft of 3/8" x 5" bolt, GMC circular saw, 2 Skill corded drills, a metal yardstick, a cheap square with level on it and a ratchet and socket set.
    The wood is all recycled from old walls in basement:mrgreen::thumb: Hope to take what I learned on first attempt to improve on the other three tables:rolleyes:sign1 but it was fun :woot1:

    John I have the model builder software that lets you design buildings and print them out. I did a Masonic temple/Shriner building will post sometime this week.:wave::wave::wave:
  20. CSXect Also remember as it gets put together and heavier it will settle and take some of those warps out where you might not need those shims lol
