Fleeing from Al
Corey,
I'll take some of that rain. It looks like we have a small chance of rain later in the week but it's correct that any real area-wide rain we get in the summer comes from tropical storms and we haven't had any since I moved here in almost two years. See, I told you I could change the weather. :) It's 92 degrees, sunny, and windy with a humidity of 26%. I'm surprised the whole place isn't on fire.

Chip, I saw that turnout. Looks good, way better than my Atlas Snappers. I've been completing a small range of hills at the rear of the layout and it's really something how easy it is compared to the screen wire and plaster days. I can do it all in foam on the work bench now with no mess and it looks a lot better. I've been making some trees with spent Crepe Myrtle bush blooms and they make really good looking tress. I can make one in about 10 minutes. I'll have to post a picture. If you have any Crepe Myrtles, check out those spent blooms before you prune.

Hope everyone has a good day today. Market down 108 at the close and oil at $85!
 
Good Morning from Tipton IN ! :D

Good morning folks

Another nice fall day for us here in the Delaware Valley. It was 58 F as I headed off to work this morning. Our high today is supposed to be 70 F with a slight chance of showers. We really could use more rain. Everything is drying up again.

Tonight is one of those days parents love. You know the kind where you have to be in ten places at once. Tonight my son has football practice, and Back to School Night/Book Fair. I am supposed to pick up bags for our Cub Scout pack’s Scouting for Food Drive. Of course all these things are at the same time.

Speaking of football practice it will be interesting to see how things go tonight after the uninspired performance on Sunday. Another example of how unmotivated or don’t care the kids were. When my son’s team was making a defensive stand in the first quarter my wife tried to get the kids on the sidelines to cheer for the defense. The team’s tradition in this situation is to clap-clap-slap thigh pad-slap thigh pad. The kids looked at her as if she had three heads. My wife told them they should be doing it to encourage their team mates. One them turned around to her and asked, “Why?” In the meantime my son and a couple of the more experienced players were trying to get the rest of the defense to do the same on the field. Out of 11 only 4 did it. Needless to say the other team got a touchdown two plays later. Just plain and simple sad.

I finished sealing and thus weathering the four cylindrical hoppers and seven open hoppers.

I hope everybody has a good day.

Lunchtime everyone!
I've been tied up with honey-do's and trying to catch up with all my put-off's before cold weather (if that happens). I spent all day yesterday cleaning out the garage that I had built the adjoining room in this past summer. Now I have room to park my bassboat in there and still have plenty of workspace for my saws and things. Fortunately, the wife was off yesterday and helped out. The downside is I have to put up four trellises for her climbing roses today and start raking tons of pine straw that's on the yard. If it were rain coming down instead of pine straw, we would have five inches in a jif:D .

Ya'll have a great day, work or play.
(Gosh, I'm a poet and didn't know it, but my feet did...their Longfellow's...yuk, yuk!) dang, that's an old one.:D :D

LOL:D I have a ton piled up under a canopy, but have to wait until Monday morning to put it roadside for the trash pickup. I told the wife that if we did this two or three times a year, the garage would be twice as big.:D

Ok, I'm proud to announce, I'm feeling better. Good enough to attempt work today. Talk about coming down with one SERIOUS cold. I had soreness, chest pain, headaches, felt dehydrated (even after drinking almost 2 gallons of water), slightly stuff nose, and generally weak. I left work Sunday after 4 hours, and have not done much since.

Now that I look back, this cold has been presenting itself in odd ways for the past 2 weeks. Since I usually do not get sick, I never really got the runny nose part, though it is slightly stuffy. I got the headaches 2 weeks ago, soreness a week ago, chest pains mid-week, and by Saturday night/Sunday morning I knew something was up... I diagnosed it by reading the symptoms on cold & sinus medicine at Wal*mart...

Including here in Buffalo . We've had some rain lately so things look better for us. Big sandstorm out in California boy what a mess there. Springlike storms in the MidWest heading for the east . Oh well guess I'll have another cup of coffee and finally get the summer stuff packed away, You all have a nice day!!! Josh glad to hear you feel better !

Morning fellas! Finally got some time to stop by and post here. Ya Paul we have some of those springlike storms rolling through my area. Man I don't think I'll get to mess with my layout for a couple weeks as far as any modeling or working on it goes, I got plans to go to a car swap meet this weekend to find some parts for some stuff my dad and I are working on. Also need to finish up the last little bit of welding on my smoker and start getting all the food for a big BBQ for my wife's b-day next weekend. Well guys I hope everyone has a great week.

Good morning folks

It is beginning to get a little warm again. The last few nights have been a little stuffy and still. I had to get up in the middle of the night and open the windows and turn the fan on. Morning drive temperature was 60 F and our high is going to be 78 F.

No modeling last night. We had football practice and my son’ school had their Open House and Book Fair. I solved my problem of being in three places at once. I had to stop by the Scout Council Office to drop off some paperwork and I was able to pick-up our pack’s bags for the Scouting For Food Drive.

I hope everybody has a good day.
