53 degrees and rainy.

Tonight starts a new POT.  If I don't make it, whoever.

Probably hunt as guessers say now only slight chance of rain.  Last day of season.

Have a good one.

Happy New Year's Eve -----

Bike is tucked away in BIL's shed, it did fit, I had to take the windshield off, which was loosen 4 bolts and its done.
Car was scheduled to go and the landlord had a big hole in the driveway, so I'll be taking it to work on Friday and then to Delaware, as it's technically on the way there anyhow.  I'll be spending the night in DE, then, depending on weather, we'll have a photo shoot with some of the guys from Delaware.  So Sunday, I fixed the shed doors in my back yard instead.

The train/ping pong table has 7 legs now and is the proper height without the foam boards, with the foam will be the same height throughout the layout.  I'm slowly moving things around to swing the table into it's east-west configuration, as the attic it full and I've moved just about everything I could to the other side of the attic, so items are being moved into the bedroom......then I can get the train table from the fire house and plug that in.  I could be laying track in 2 weeks......

So, basically, the main part of the layout will be 5X9, dogleg down to 4X8, then cross over the stairs to a 20"x8' leg.  Depending on room, may have another off shoot of that, 10"X12" pad for possibly an accessory (I have a log loader, Menards Domino Sugar and American Power and Light, amongst others).

After work, going over my sister's house tonight about 8 ----- might leave at 1230 is after the Times Square stuff is over.

Happy New Year, guys!!!

Prayers and well wishes all around for health and a better 2019!!

Here is something from the "I never thought I would see that again." category.  I spotted it while I was out getting goodies for the evening celebration.


Let's hope that we are all treated to positive surprises in 2019

Happy New Year!

From the Columbus Dispatch:

The average price of gas was $1.80 in Franklin County on Monday and $1.92 in Ohio.

Columbus-area drivers continue to get a break at the pump.

Gas stations across central Ohio are selling gas for well below $2 a gallon.

The average price of regular unleaded gas Monday was $1.80 in Franklin County, with the lowest around $1.50, according to AAA and GasBuddy. The national average was $2.26 and $1.92 in Ohio, according to AAA.

Hello there,

way better this evening. Thanks for all your concerns and prayers. Got the catheter out this AM and two different ointments to aid in healing. Doc says 1 in 10 have this problem. Guess I'm the lucky one.

I gave up trying figure out gas prices. Locally gas is $2.29. Home heating oil/off road diesel has been cheaper than gas forever. Last week gas was $2.39 and I paid $2.69 for Heating oil.

Mrs is allready reclinerized. Bed is calling.



Prayers for those in need

Good evening all,

Although it is after midnight, I am posting here to wish everyone a Happy New Year and to give the Chief a chance to open 2019.  Quiet day again.  We did go see Bumblebee tonight.  By far the best of the live action Transformer films so far.  Of course having Hailee Stenfield in it does not hurt.  I hope everyone has a good day.

Keep on training,

Mike C. from Indiana
