    Good morning folks

    A little on the chilly side this morning as I headed out the door. It was 53 F. High today is supposed to be 75 F with a slight chance of showers. We really need some rain. Actually we need a long soaking rain. The ground is dusty and harder than concrete.

    I sealed the trees and foliage on the museum diorama. I painted the ground around the small barn on the layout. I also began weathering the trucks on the hoppers.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Good morning folks

    The humidity is returning in these parts. It was a thick and heavy 69 F this morning as I left the driveway. There was fog pretty much every where. The high today is supposed to be 79 F and it is supposed to feel like a summer day with the humidity. It looks like the rest of the week will be summer-like and with no rain.

    I dammed up the river valley on the museum diorama. I hope to be able to pour water tonight of tomorrow. I finished weathering the trucks on the hoppers. I also began weathering the bodies of two of the cylindrical hoppers.

    Cub Scouts Awards Ceremony tonight. We couldn’t do the awards last week because it was also our recruiting night and the fact that we weren’t able to get the awards from the scout store in time. I am not sure if this will interfere with any modeling tonight. My wife will be at the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal at a fossil dig site this morning for training on fossils. She is enjoying it since she gets to go on field trips and get paid for it. Later she will be back at the museum for more training. Then she has scouts to do. I am sure we will both be exhausted before the night is done.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Morning all. Off to Columbia SC and Ellett Marine Dealers show. Back Saturday. Stop in Concord NC at Bass Pro Shops for a vender visit. Glad to see John F back and his pictures. Last two days were real busy ones for me. Had a public hearing that lasted till 11:30 PM. This will be a break [if I turn the cell phone off so Town folks can't reach me]. Have a great week.

    Good morning folks

    It was a muggy 72 F as I headed out this morning. There was also a thick blanket of fog to deal with on the drive to work. It is more August-like now than it was in August with a high today of 86 F with ugly humidity.

    No modeling last night. We had Cub Scouts and flute lessons. I am waiting for the dams to dry on the museum diorama. I should be able to begin pouring water tonight.

    I hope everybody has a good day.

    Good morning folks

    Another foggy drive to work. It was 69 F and muggy when I left the house. We are supposed to have a high of 85 F. We have more of the same for the next five days. Still no chance of rain in the forecast until Wednesday.

    I poured water on the museum diorama. No other modeling.

    We have the usual shopping to fit in. On Saturday my daughter has her birthday party. This year they are doing a ceramic painting party. On Sunday my son has a home game against Claymont Falcons Midget JV. We hope that the Drexel Hill Raiders Midget JV Silver can get their first win.

    I need to pour more water on the museum diorama and add some more details. On the layout I need to fix the turf around the small barn and start adding bushes and other details. I would also like to finish weathering the 11 hoppers on the workbench.

    I hope everybody has a good day.
