Good evening Shop Dwellers! Hope those of you who celebrate Easter had a great one, we did!
Eric - glad to see you're able to return to an almost-normal life, with trains and an excellent space for a layout.
Sherrell - nice work kitbashing that pallet into a potting bench!
Curt - glad your sister-in-law didn't have a stroke after all. Give my best wishes to Phil!
Ken in VA - sorry to hear about your back pain, hope the VA can get their **** together so the underlying problem can be corrected.
Gene - awesome model of an RDC! Luckily my industrial switching layout doesn't lend itself to passenger ops, so I'm able to resist the compulsion to buy one for myself. I rode in those a few times on the B&O Camden line.
Chet - hopefully you can keep that snow blade off your tractor at least thru August!
Dave - sorry that job of yours didn't work out, glad you were at least able to walk away from it.
It's getting too close to my bed time, sorry I don't have to reply to all of you.
I haven't really done any mrr stuff over the past two weeks because things have been so crazy around here. I've had an unrealistic deadline imposed on me at my day job, so I've been [and still will be] putting in some longer-than-normal hours at the office to get my deliverables finished on time. Had to do the usual annual maintenance work on the mower so I could get it running in time for the first mowing of the season, which I finally did on Saturday. Then there was all the usual Easter rituals.
One of my "expert" neighbors has planted the idea in SWMBO's mind that the 12,500btu window-mounted heat pump - that I use for climate control in my trainroom - is what is causing our electricity bill to be as high as it is. I've already put it on a timer-switch so it only runs between 2pm and 12:00am each day. Now she's saying it should only be running when I am physically occupying the trainroom! She still doesn't comprehend that nothing can instantly change the temperatue/humidity level of a 4500 cubic-foot space at the flick of a switch! *sigh*
