Craig, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I lost two sisters in such a manner.
We have a young couple in my family that suffered thru the same. But now they have a beautiful little girl to celebrate. I am confident things will get better for your family too.
Thanks, I pray your shoulder heals quick.
Progress report: though not visible, some progress has been made. (Let me get this out of the way. Papaw's princess, Mabel Dawn Fletcher is here, mother and daughter doing fine. Our daughter is expecting again, Dr gave them the thumbs up for another go. Praying this time goes well.)
In between babies, finishing the trim in the family room and preparing the master bath grout for sealing, I've been watching lots of YouTube vids of selecting the benchwork types, track planning, assembling benchwork, etc...
While in Knoxville TN, I checked out Dans Trains, Randy was very accommodating and helpful, and I left with a caboose kit which will become Arkansas and Ozarks #301.
On our way home to STL from Knoxville, we checked out Classic Trains and Ferraris in Paducah KY. Left with some axle gears for E8 #2016 Citation and I ordered a pair of re-rail frogs for the A&O caboose. During the A&O years they were necessary items. Both stores get a "thumbs up" with helpful, knowledgable, staff. If you're in their areas, check them out.
Not exactly layout progress, but I built a portable paint booth. It was inspired by a YouTube video build.
It is basically two plastic tubs one nested inside the other. The outer tub has a bathroom fan mounted in the bottom, the inner tub has a grid cut into the bottom and a filter placed across it. This allows removal for cleaning and keeps the fan assembly clean.
Nice job Craig!!! How do you cut the grid for the filter?
Dremel with a cutting wheel. Its kinda slow, but it worked.
Switch is from a box fan. (Only uses one speed.)
My daughter had two of those, it was rough, little tenderness now Sorry
Our sympathies, Tom, Bill.
Our daughter is expecting again. Ultra sound scheduled for Sep 11. Blessed.
Ultra sound didn't happen on the 11th, she experienced another miscarriage, it was confirmed today. We'll bounce back, though admittedly, the world seems a little less bright today.
so so sorry for her and your family.
So sorry Craig.
Our prayers are with you and your family.
Joe and Cynthia Lovett
