Well he made it till 9PM. No rain here either and none in the forecast. We are looking at 90's for awhile. Grass is turning to straw real quick.

Well, I started resurfacing the deck yesterday, got maybe a quarter of the way through it and started getting woozy, so I stopped immediately.  The heat sneaked up on me.  Wow.

Be careful out there folks!

Mornin' boys.  Sunny & '76 along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  Might head up to the lake later on.  Wifey and I watched movie The Healer last night.  If you need a pick-me-up, check it out.

Fifepup and his gal are touring around SC this week.  He's still trying to impress her to move around Lake Murray.  Wedding plans for November '21.  He starts a new marina job on Monday, back in FLA.

Wifey has Fifedom back to normal, post grandsons' visit.  My buddy Tom was supposed to stay with us this week, but he had a dental emergency crop up.  So he'll try again in a week or two.

The RR made front page news.  It's been an up-and-down week (and it's only Wednesday).  Changes may be needed.  

Anywho, just glad the calendar has changed.  I like July.

Happy Hump Day - WOW FIRST PAGE!!!!

Miserable day yesterday, Had to layoff 3 guys at end of day (they were furloughed) and changed the status of 2 more (from in shop to in home, they were also furloughed and will return 7/13/20).  All last minute.  Worked til 5.  A multitude of issues/problems/programming, just nuts.  I'll be sitting back today and seeing what is going to happen, just absolute craziness yesterday and Monday.

Mom went out for a ride to the post office then we wound up at Jenni's house and I brought Jenni dinner.  Mom is doing much better!!  Thanks for the prayers, guys!! Stayed until 8 ish, stopped by my house to get something and checked in with my Princess and her and Mom had a quick chat.  Started on the road runner model, converting a 1:48 McDonalds Edition coupe to a convertible.  I cut the top off and cleaned up the cuts near the Dutchman panel (near trunk, lol) .  Later, I have to run the Mercer County Fireman's Association meeting in West Trenton.  The President is out with bladder cancer. I plan to leave early and put more money down on my K4s PRR w/TMCC, if not just buy it outright.  I think I'm spending more on trains stuff as of late, bought 4 tankers for $50 from NY Electric Trains last week.  4 Sunoco and 1 Mobil.  

Showers today, 80's and then cooler for the weekend and drier.

Buckeye you didn't get the virus did you?

We have been lucky nice weather all June, it can and usually is hot. July through the 1st 2 weeks in September guaranteed to be hot. Sunday 97.

I got a haircut yesterday, I needed one at the beginning of this hoax so I really needed one now.

Glad to hear that. 

Morning all. No real plans for today, waiting for my diabetic DR. to call.

Then to go to Walley World to pick up some groceries. 

That's the plans so far for today

Kevin I have the ZTE AVID 559. Unless you want to pay extra make sure to tell them you don't want to receive text and you want text and blocked. It's called there connect plan, and they charge you an extra $5 a month. now it's advisable to take the unlimited talk plan for a extra $5 a month.

I want to go with Counsumer Cellular for the provider. Just want to know about phones. Yes

Hello there,

sad news today. Jeb, the toddler passed away this afternoon. Thanks for all your prayers. Please more Prayers for his parents, his Mom is 7 months pregnant. Times like these make our issues seem trivial. 

Thanks again

Kev get a iphone, check the websites of the different phone companies look for a new but several years old model for a good price. iphones are made with quality componets and work good. Many people have them so can help you with questions.

Continuing with reparing wreck damage on my Del Sol I discovered I needed a inner fender, the old one is all messed up. And I needed to return the nose and fender to Pick Your Part for cores refunds so I went today. I'm older than most they ever see there and I got the idea they respected that.

Oh, COVID-19's real all right.  I haven't lost anyone, but the proprietor of a train shop I enjoyed going to on my trips north, "The Old And Weary Car Shop" in Tappan NY, was carried off by the virus in April.  Sad, very sad.  I can't say I knew him well but he was a very friendly guy who treated everyone who came in the shop like an old friend. 

He was a widower, his wife died of cancer two years previously.  Maybe he just didn't want to go on anymore.

I don't know what's going to happen with the shop. It was a fun place to visit.

I have a cousin who is one of the lucky ones if you want to call it that. She had gotten it, but thanks to some good doctors she has survived it but is still nowhere near where she was health-wise before this hit her.

Mornin' boys.  Sunny & 65 along the Patterson Creek cut-off.  We will be gardening today, so hopefully will be done by noon (and the heat).  

Wifey and I took that drive yesterday.  Took a Cake to my folks for stepdad.  Then headed up to Deep Creek.  Picked up garden supplies from Lowes, ate at the Green Turtle, then circled around the lake itself.  It was a lovely day.

Angel to all in need.

89 and rising fast.  Sunny with only 20% chance of rain.

KEV, just pulling your leg.

Banks, prayers.  Hard to loose a little one. 

Probably mow.

Enjoy your day.

Banks, my sincere thoughts, prayers, and condolances to you and your family on the loss of the little one.  I cannot imagine the horror of losing a child.  Things aren't supposed to happen that way. 

Again, sincere condolances.

Friday Eve - 

Was better yesterday, I got sort of a breather, still had some issues, however, everything was more manageable and I punched out at 3:00

Mailed out a box, then got my stuff together for my meeting.  Stopped at Trains and Things - got my 2 road runner box cars (1 is a gift) and FINALLY my K4 #3678 TMCC equipped engine.  Very happy, my budget is busted, but I have my K4 !!!  Just need a PRR T1 Duplex and I'll be done (and that is a $2000 engine!)

Meeting went very well, about 25 showed up.  I might be able to  run this show for 3 years if I am elected in December, but that's a ways down the road.

Stopped briefly at Jenni's for a quick dinner then home by 1030.  My sister stepped in to hang with Mom.  Mom has decided to get the valve in her heart replaced, she tired of being sick.  Rather than wait on the valve repairing itself, she just wants it done.

90 ish later, rained and thunder last night.  Better weather for the weekend - I'll be shopping for food and fireworks later. 

Banks - Condolences to the family, that truely is sad

That's all from here
