    Willie: 8 hours of sleep would be nice, but not because of potty breaks. I'm still not adjusted to time change and about the time and I they'll change it again.

    Morning all, New day! Wife called me on the way to work this morning wanting to know if it was snowing. Apparently her trip to work was through a snow squall. With the temp above freezing, it isn't going to last. Curt: Prayers for your mom. Karl: I'll let you know when I get them. Thank...

    Downside of more water is the trips to the bathroom.....Don't ask me how I know... 🤣 But you're better off being properly hydrated.

    Morning all, 45° and windy, with gust currently to 45mph. Only expected to get stronger as the day progresses continuing through tomorrow. High wind warnings up for most of Kansas. Gusts expected to exceed 65mph. Enough wind that it blew my little truck around coming into work this morning...

    Sorry, It's a GP9, not GP7. I need the long and short railings. The stanchions from a wrong model are the same and I have the front and rear end railings on the model. I can adapt the headlight lens and horn from another kit. The horns are actually still showing in stock at Athearn.

    Martin Luther King Day Give Away

    But I want the front side!!!!!!🤣 But no worries as the chances of me winning are 1,000,000,000:1. I'm one of these people that could have 99 out of 100 raffle tickets and not have the ticket drawn. I'm still buying 1 Powerball ticket for tonight and a Mega Millions ticket for Friday as...

    What do I need to know to get started air brushing?

    I've been practicing with an inexpensive Testor's airbrush kit I picked up when Michael's opened a new store and gave $50 gift cards. (Testor's #281244). For me it was free at the time. Something to get my feet wet with. So far I've only used a bit of acrylic paint and stuff looks ok.

    Morning all, 24° and clear this morning in Doo-Dah. Supposed to get to the mid-50's today. Slowly getting the new ISP integrated into our systems. Seems for every 2 steps forward, we have to take 1 back, but it's still progress I guess.

    I had a great uncle that hobo'ed from southern Illinois during the depression. Ended up in Michigan and actually found a job, which then brought the rest of my grandmother's family to the area where I was born.

    Morning all, I have time for a coffee to go this morning. Spent the weekend playing "Whack-a-Mole" at my son's 65 years old house. I know why I like sheet rock screws!!!!!! Find a nail slightly protruding so you hit it to push it back into the stud and 3 more pop out. I hate old...

    Morning all, Cloudy (still) and 30° this morning. Son has his house. Seller had a inspection done, so after we walked through with the inspection, we tagged the things we thought were most important and what we could live with doing ourselves. Turns out he had ALL the flagged issues repaired...

    Well, not too bad. We've got the new internet up along side the old. Now to reconfigure some servers, contact the state and county, get our MX records moved and get our SSL Certificates ported to the new IP addresses. But the hard part is done.... 🤣 I way overthink stuff.
