    Woo hoo, good news Sir James. Champagne for everyone! Sox game on the radio. Wrapped the bride's gifts while she was out - explained the facts of adult life to the job-less daughter lamenting her lack of a car. LOL. Off to run trains for a while - got a cool light to shine upon the laptop keyboard.

    Congrats, Sir James!!! Glad to hear everything came out all right. My cousin's birthday party was today. Ate half my weight in garlic bread. I'll take some Tums and call it a night.

    :thumb: Way to Go Sir James!

    Doug, I am on the way - sorry for the late start, I missed the call sign1

    Son had a band concert tonight - they were greatly improved from their last concert before Christmas (Jon, you were right, they are getting better).

    Big Congrats on the new Atlas Loco, Kurt! And to Jefelectric on that Gulf Tank Car!

    I'm watching a Camelback on ebay that has tmcc - need to check up on it soon.... Got my TMCC control stuff from ebay today, need to plug it in tomorrow and see how it works? Came with a book from CTT too.

    CSX - that is the hardest thing, to work with old warped wood like that! Too bad you don't live close, you could use some of my tools anytime! I might get to help, too!

    Dennis, hope you have had a great night with the family and caught up on your rest - the Bible says to be well rested and watch your health.

    TomPM - prayers for your foot. Hang in there and hope the doc can help.

    Spray painted 4 chairs and umbrella table for patio. Black now [were green]. Did interview. Three N&O articles cutting the Wake County School Board. One [I leaked] was on, they suddenly would not let the Hunter Safety Shooting Team from one school go to their tournament. Big time cut on them. Then we had voted against our School Board Rep for changing the way they are elected. We sided with County Commissioners. My buddy the Mayor of Garner told the school board they were tired of having kids from SE Raleigh bused to their school. Low income minorities. I plan to see their attendence area for our new Middle School we are helping buy before they get a CO. Do you think I will hold their CO? Yes I will.
    Doug M, sorry I missed your call. Today was Cart's real birthday. His Mom came [his Dad was here working] and brought him. Cost Granddad $84 and all Cart had was a cookie and some milk. [banghead] Loves his Granddad. Got out of vehicle, GrandMom took him. He looked at me,smiled and held out his hands for me. Did not want to go back to anyone else. He knows where the toys come from. Also digging in the garden and fishing.
    Just got in. No popcorn for me. Too full. Sleepy.
    Sir J, great [told you so]. Good night all.

    It was very much a trying and challenging task but with the hugh c clamp it was not that bad. I made the legs so they would be simple to remove and replace them. A neighbor has a few 2x4's from their basement remodel will take up thier offer of free wood, so far I only had to buy the hardware and still have more yet to buy. I am keeping a running tab on components and design features for a possible article someday will update progress as often as I can.

    0730BST in a frosty, cloudy and damp Stockport. Currently -2C expected high +11C.
    Had a retinopathy Monday, all clear. Next three Wednesdays- Dietitian-Blood samples-Vet. Last lot showed Liver and Kidney damage, possibly side effects of the Diabetes, have cut out all the garbage (chocolate, sugar, sweeties, sticky buns), lost 7 pounds already, 25 to go. I actually feel better for the weight loss. So I say to all my fellow fatties-'get a grip!' You'll save yourselves a lot of grief in later life.[​IMG]

    Sir James, that's good news on passing the stress test. I did well on mine also. I've yet to have a heart attack but being a diabetic puts me in the same range as someone who has already had one so I have to be especially careful.

    Good morning folks

    It is 54 F on its way to 72 F; finally a spring-like day. I am home right now. I have to take my son to the doctors for his annual physical.

    No modeling last night we had Cub Scout den meetings. I am hoping for tonight.

    Happy Birthday Tom!

    Morning all. Raining here - supposed to get even more miserable into the weekend - the paper calls it a 1,800 mile wide storm. Wow.

    Happy birthday to Tom and Carter! bday2John Baker, it looks like you are doing the proper things to stay well - lose weight, eat healthier. Hope the tests go well. Enjoyed a nice chat with Dennis last eve - as you know, he's a class act. Brutus, I love the look of a Camelback, hope you get it, Mr. TMCC!
