    Good morning y'all. Flo- Coffee and bacon please. As I type, it is presently 57 and hazy per the weather app. High today is 74. Going to enjoy a post Christmas hike in the woods with my son after church and lunch today. We were supposed to hit the woods last weekend, but it rained us out...

    Good morning y'all, and Merry Christmas Eve. Flo- Coffee, leave the pot. Lots to do and need the go-go juice. Let's start off with a quick check of the weather: Cold. And Dark-ish. App on the phone says that it is 30 with a feel of 25. High today is 59, which is kind of Christmas-y for the...

    About an hour and a half south, approximately 84 miles. I wish you the best in your current situation, but if you do relocate out this way there are some pretty cool railroad related sights and museums out this way.

    Good morning shop dwellers. Flo- Coffee and the Usual please. Let's talk weather for a moment. How are we going to close out 2021 in South Carolina? 55, 60, 67 (Christmas Day), 72, 72, 75, 74, 70, 71. Dang global warming or climate change or whatever buzzword they're using now. I think if...

    Good morning y'all. Flo- Coffee please, we seem to be having a cold front moving through. What's that, just in time for Christmas? Nah, it's supposed to be near 70 on Christmas day. Haven't had time to keep up, catch up, or get ahead. Skimmed the thread, liked some pictures. Trying to...

    The last winter I lived though before moving from Jacksonville to North Carolina saw a day with a high of 94 in the middle of January. This was 1998 and in my opinion exemplifies the absurdity of the state and weather in the south in general. I think the one thing we can all agree on...

    Good morning y'all. Flo- Coffee and bacon this morning. It is currently 62 and raining. Yesterday it was 70 and raining. Welcome to the south. Amazon did not disappoint yesterday. I received the first 2 buildings I ordered with my Christmas money. Walthers Merchant's Row II and DPM's...

    Good morning y'all. It appears I will never catch up, so we're just gonna do the next best thing a keep a-rollin'. Flo- Coffee, bacon, and buttered toast with strawberry jam please. Because no day can truly begin until the coffee and bacon are consumed. Let's start with the weather. It's...

    I think, and this may be a little radical, that every politician that has been in office since before the internet was a thing should get the same treatment as a lame horse. Taken out and shot. But what do I know, I'm just the one who gets screwed over by them and their policies. 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Good morning y'all. Missed a few days and it blew up in here. Id say I'll try t catch up, but I probably won't, so I won't. Currently 39, forecast says 65 today, 70 the next two days as another batch of showers moves through. Flo- Coffee please, and I think I'll have the Usual today. MIL...

    Just checked the status of my detail parts order. It is in-country and not stranded in the Pacific. Yay! Looks like it has been transferred from one carrier to another at JFJ, so hopefully it'll be here soon. Looking forward to finishing up the service station. Well, "finishing".

    Good morning y'all. Flo- Coffee and bacon please. And turn the heat up a notch or two. It's 30 outside. Tell Mel to stop being so cheap, the traffic has been heavy lately, so I know the monthly profits are up. 😄 No real news to report on the modeling front other than getting the interior of...

    Willie- Reading about your lack of handrails stirred up these images.

    Easy kits

    As Willie stated, the Model Power kits are fairly basic and simple to assemble. I recently picked up a few as well as a Walthers's kit, which is also a basic four wall and roof structure. I am currently working on the gas station and the Merchant's Row, but I am taking a different approach. I...
