Gordon and Terry,


I am off Tuesday and Wednesday and will see what I can do with a video look. There is also another at PPL (couple thousand more) that I would also like to look at. Not sure which I like better. Just would like to look at them personally.


Don't mind the storms when I am home. Hate it when at work and wondering if I will get home. I left determined to get home tonight and was a bit surprised by the amount of vehicles on the road but not by the amount in the ditches. Slow and steady my Dad used to say. If the semi's are going slow so should you.


This wind is going to cause some awful drifts by morning because we have some already across the roads. I will try to get in but if I can't get out of my drive or down the road to the HWY there is no way I am going in.


So, maybe I will be talking to you in the AM and can set up the video view a day early.


Have a great evening, Lynne

Wow, yours looks great. Mine looks great considering the condition it was in when I got it. After new floor, stabilizing side wall and fashioning a plywood door, exterior paintjob, all plumbing removed, rewired some new lights and fresh interior paint , rebuilt booth, made new cushions, drapes and probably much more, it now serves as my deer camp sleeping quarters. Dry and warm! Thinking of selling and getting a little larger one with working shower and toilet. Currently using one in camp. Have turned down $500. Not sure what it's worth. When I explained it was more of a rebuild than a remodel they licensed it as homemade. No indication of what the original brand was.

Bap,


I like doing crafts when I can find the time. I plan to work on some I started when I retire. I like quilting, needlework, and sewing. Knitting, crocheting, whatever I feel like playing with.


When our son was little and he had matchbox cars, he wanted a garage for Christmas. I looked at all available and could not find something that I thought a 5 yr old could play with without it caving in on him.. I thought he should be able to sit on it if he wanted but definitely run his cars over it and lean on it without worry of it collapsing.


I went outside to the shed and got several pieces of wood. I had a platform and carved two driveways into it so he could drive his cars onto the platform. I then built a garage and put his name on it. It had an office area, garage area for working on his cars, and parking on the side. I made a ramp to the roof and made a parking deck on top with all the appropriately painted details with leftover paint we had.


He opened it Christmas morning and screamed with joy cause he had a garage and it had his name on it. It is in my basement as I type. He is 42 yrs old and it still is as sturdy as the day I finished it. It took a lot of punishment so the paint is chipped and it has scratches in it. He and his friends sat on it, stood on it, dropped it, and had it in water and rain. The garages for sale in the stores were about $45 and worthless.


Glad my Dad taught me to figure things out for myself so I could do this. It is still one of my sons favorite toys. Hopefully someday he will have a son and it will go to him. Or maybe a daughter.


Have a good night and keep safe on the roads. Lynne

Good morning, Everyone! The coffee is tasting good and hot this morning!
I am seeing all this snow from trucking buddies from IL. to Mich. And I sure am glad I am not in it! Looks like a heck of a storm! Lynne, be careful if you have to go out in it!
We are taking a short trip over to Chiang Mai for a couple of days, To change my visa, from a retirement visa to a marriage visa, and renew my drivers license. So if I am not on you all will know why.
Everyone be safe and stay warm! Rail!

Good Morning All, 2* and very windy this am, like most of the country now I am getting the snow, supposed to get up to 14". Lynne, those kind of gifts are the best, when your little you might not understand but with age it becomes something very special, I still have things my father made for me. Rail, your right the snow is all over and causing all sorts of problems, I'm glad I don't need to go "out" on the roads, I just need to clean it up. Stay safe all.

Good Morning,


I didn't make it to work this AM. Sitting here inside where it is warm and safe and drinking my coffee. I got up at 4 and looked at my driveway and thought (oh to heck with it). I don't call in much (8 times in 33 yrs) so I figure I could take the safe way out this morning.


The driveway was a mess, they hadn't plowed the roads yet and I wasn't sure I could get to the HWY. Then 32 miles of driving in it I just didn't think it was worth the risk this AM. So I am off for the next 2 days also and hopefully the roads will be clean by then.


You all stay safe and have a wonderful cup of coffee this am. Lynne

Ok so who sent this cold weather south? 23* wind chill 15* this is Arkansas, we've already had our two weeks of cold weather! Well at least the coffee is good. Had a 2yo grand nephew dropped of this morning, he's feeling fine, his normal sitter is sick. Man what a lot of energy.

Bap,


Was it you talked about hands and typing? If so, put good hot water in the sink with Epsom salt. Soak your hands 15 to 20 minutes. This requires you having a kettle of hot water close to pour to keep it hot for 15 to 20 mins. Your hands should be better. You can rub the fingers and thumbs as you are soaking them. This moves the fluids out of the hand and allows easier movement. The heat eases the arthritis effect at joints.


There are hand soakers you can get that have an electric plug to keep them hot. If the sink or bowl works for you with easing arthritis, then you may want to invest in one. I massage patient's hands who have bad arthritis. Wish I was near because I could really ease that for you. We ever get together, I will show you.




Huntski,


One suggestion for the nephew, duct tape! Lynne

Lynne I like your thinking! Have tape handy!

Problem with above hand treatment would be standing at sink for 15 minutes hand in water, without needing to go to the bathroom! Lol
