    Morning all. Same old record. Extra hot and humid. Going to stay in some today and run trains. Ceramic tile guys coming to do mud room floor. Have to be here for that. Probably put soaker hoses on garden. Have a good one.

    I am feeling lonely, I am the only active member at the moment. Looks like all my american friends are asleep. Hope your heatwave will come to an end soon. Here in Germany temperatures droped from 100 to 65 and we are having some thunderstorms now. OK, have to return to work now. Greetings from Germany.

    wdsrwg - Sorry about the rain.... but the "cool" temps must be nice... I'll let you know tomorrow when it finally gets here :)

    Well, that's it for now, off to the showers and wwork.. see you all later!!!!! :D :D :D

    Morning all. Mom was taken to hospital yesterday. Mostly 90 years old and run down [not taking meds and eating right]. She has won a sitter for 24/7 or a trip to the nusing home. I know she will choose the sitter which she has refused until now. Hot and humid. Going to water garden. Later

    How is your mom Chief . I wish her well.

    Weather is the same every where. What happened to all this global warmimg talk?

    CNN and the rest never bring it up when it's hot, why is that.

    I figure the bigger the engine in you SUV, the coolder the AC, LOL

    Nice building, looks good.
    I try and save those projects for those long cold winter months. But then again who the hell wants to be out in this heat.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    Where the temp is 68 deg and headed to 85 with Blue Clear Skies.

    We have finish the clean up from our flood and our trains have survide without any damage to the layout. We hook them back up to the DCS TIU this past week and put power to them. All looks well. :D aussie balloon6

    Maybe things will get back to normal now,except our A/C unit died this past Thursday night. So we now need to replace it. :cry: wall1

    Morning all. Didn't get to check in yesterday. Stayed busy shimming and installing a new threshold at the back door where new tile floor was installed. Was it a hot and humid job. Door had to be cut off and it was HEAVY. Got to mow today even though it has not rained. Need rain bad. Suppose to be another hot and humid one. Have a good day.
