    Good morning, good evening, wherever you may be. It's time to gather around and let us know how you did this past weekend. For some, a long weekend, for others, a mid week day off. Whichever category you fall in, post what you got done.

    Thursday: Deep cleaning of my work shop was in order. After being gone for almost a year, there was a big layer of dust on everything. Angela and I also tackled a bunch of domestic duties plus a trip to my favorite hardware store to whittle down some house repairs.

    Friday: Not much, just a lot of brush clearing.

    Saturday: More yard work.

    Sunday: I had planned on working on layout items but in order to do that, I had to re-claim my garage/woodworking shop. I spent most of the afternoon cleaning but managed to get the wood cut for the cassettes I plan on using for both the City Job as well as the B&M layout.

    So how about you? What did you accomplish? Let us know! Special thanks to those who posted pictures of their Bicentennial locomotives and rolling stock. Anyone get pictures of them on their layout? Post them if you did. We're back on track for the rest of the summer which means we'll assemble again on Friday the 12th to start the process all over again. Until then, have a great week, stay safe, congratulations to the USA's Women's Football (Soccer) Team and...

    High Greens!

    A little more work on assembling my HOn30 box car.

    I had been expecting a package today, with my new critter body kit. As of Saturday, it was in a post office 125 miles away. Instead, USPS then sent it to Los Angeles. Why? A 2600 mile round trip detour. What dunce did that...? I am not happy.
