    Good morning all,

    I got a call a little while ago informing me that my brother in law had passed away last evening. He was in a skilled care facility suffering from Alzheimer's, they thought he only had a cold, obviously something more than that. He was a great guy with a huge sense of humor that he never lost. Will be leaving shortly to be with my sister.

    Sorry to hear John.

    Rick,I tell you what I'll come up there If you turn the heat upand help you make cabinets If you come down here and give me a hand with this plumbing and drywall?

    To dam cold out here for me wish it would warm up a bit, But it has leftme with plenty of time to get somemore done on the addition and the trains.If I could just stop my wife from moving things and adding things to the addition It would be great, She now wants toput another window in.( after Ive just finished the dry wallthere).HMMMmmm
    Yall have fun,
    Tony

    Low: 62°F
    Rain: 0.00"
    Rain Rate: 0.00"/h

    Low: 59 °F
    Now through 09:00 AM CST January 12, 2007
    High: 75

    Through 9 AM...scattered showers will continue developing over the coastal waters east of Cameron as well as south central Louisiana. These showers will move into eastern portions of central Louisiana with rainfall rates between a tenth and a quarter inch an hour. This area will cover those east of a line from Cameron and Lake Arthur to Crowley, Ville Platte and eventually Bunkie and Marksville and will include the cities of Lafayette and New Iberia. Movement of the showers will be north at 20 mph.

    Tonight Low: 62 Mostly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Patchy fog after midnight. Lows in the lower 60s. Southeast winds around 10 mph.

    I have my weekend project lined up. Building a new backdrop. I got new poster paper today for the back plate. The scene is printed but still needs to be cut out, that's a couple hours work right there. I have to take down the old back plate, as the backdrop on it is fading and is definately looking it's age. The new back plate will have to be assembled and attached to the wall. This will be done with wood glue, as before, and the back plate will be held in place with thumb tacks until the glue dries. The seams will be covered with masking tape, then the whole thing will be painted Nimble Blue. After the paint is dry, the printed sections will be joined together and attached to the back plate with a thin layer of white glue and allowed to dry. The last touch will be to add some clouds.
