    Good Morning Everyone.:rebel: It is a cold morning here but is supposed to improve by this afternoon. Although we are supposed to get more rain later on today. Hope it comes soon that way it doesn't do it in the afternoon.

    Hey, you know what they say, if you don't like it- go! :D

    Morning from a rainy Charlotte NC. Hotel parking lot was full of big NS construction trucks. I have read that NS is going to expand their intermodle yard here. Don't know if that is what they are doing. Off to Bass Pro.
    Jeff, good luck and don't starve.
    All have a good one.

    A I sit here in PA listening to the teeming rain... I have to go out soon.... :(

    Good things:
    It's Friday T.G.I.F!
    It's raining - so it'll be relatively slow at work...
    The gauge looks a bit better and feels a bit "homier" every time I come in
    Chief is on the run again :D
    Flea MArket Sunday :)

    Bad things:
    Needles..... Best of Luck Jeff
    Rain.... Yeah it's good on work days as compared to weekends, but coming down in buckets is never fun.....
    Lots of work to catch up on before quitting time.... So I can enjoy the weekend :D

    Back home and glad to be here after 10 days in the hospital with blocked intestines.

    I am not quite able to resume work on my layout but I soon will if the weather here stays warm.

    Things went ok at the doctors office. They didn't find anything that I need to be concerned about. I have to go back on the 7th for some more tests.

    Well I knew it wouldn't last very long. It appears that I will have to mow the lawn this weekend. I was hoping to make it another month. :)

    Gill it is great to have you back.

    46 in Portage? Well just a few miles below you it was 41.

    Glad to hear that. Anyone remember that quote in baseball when the player got hit in the head with a ball and the next day in the paper they said they xrayed his head and found nothing. I love that quote. Some days I feel like that. :mrgreen:
