    Raining today and I havent polished the car doors yet.

    I am giving her 3 coats all over.

    I also polish the windows and lamps. That helps keep them clean when it rains.

    My other hobby, old cars....

    I am presntly looking for a Jeep Wagoneer to restore and out fit for surf fishing.




    This old bucket of bolts look pretty goor for 15 years on the road.

    It is all new from the tires up.

    Gil - nice looking car

    We are home for the weekend as the last two days we were back in Grand Rapids. Found an other hobby shop up there, but they were closed when we went by. I will catch them the next time I am up there in two weeks.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    Where the temp is 65 deg with mostly Blue Clear Skies! :)

    Tony - too bad about your tree, but very good news that your house has only minor damage and that you and your family is ok. :thumb:

    Today is the OTTS picnic at one of our local parks that also has several miles of 7 1/2" track that runs thru the wooks. Today the live steamers will be running. :D

    Good Morning Everyone. It is a cool 47 degrees here. Supposed to be another nice day outside. This should be a nice day to do some modeling outside, but I will probably stay inside and work. LOL

    Good Morning Guys. It is a nice 55 Degrees here in PA. Supposed to only get up in the high 60's today. I have nothing planned for today. I will be leaving around 7 tonight to go out to Columbus, Ohio. This trip is fire company business, one of many trips we will make out there to view the progress of our new ladder truck.
