Good morning from cloudy and mild Northeast Ohio! Temps in
the upper 60's to low 70's with rain forecast for this evening.

After a bout of doing taxes this weekend into Monday, and
finalizing the bowling outlays for all the teams I got into some
modeling. Painted a 40' Boxcar and continued work on the X58
boxcar, which is installing the hand brakes including all the rods
levers etc.

See you all later!

There is rain in this area today, the temp is 64 and it's overcast. Temp is said to be going to 70 today. I'll see what happens. Hmm...the sun just peaked out.

I took my chainsaw to the repair shop yesterday. It's a Stihl and I'm having starting issues with it. It floods easily and won't start then. I did all my bills and then after the trip to the saw shop I mowed the back half of the yard. It looks like 3/4 of my blue spruces are dying. We had a fellow coming tomorrow to give us an estimate on cutting them down.

I did a shake the box Accurail boxcar in Evan's Products lettering assigned to Kellogg's service kit yesterday. The Battle Creek RR Club had them for sale at a recent train show, I bought 1 of group of several they had. Lightly out of era but a nice looking car and 'local'

Off on road trip Wednesday today.

Everyone have a good day.

G'day all,
Weather rained over night. Bright and sunny this morning. I'm sitting on the front porch having a cup of Joe, watching the Lorrikeets, the cat trying to catch one and the birds tormenting the cat.
Its quite funny.
Back to the signals later, but have to take SWMBO to dental tech to adjust her new choppers.
The joys of owning a Stahl ha ha
