Good evening Gavin, good morning folks. It’s dark, dry, windy and mild here in Northwest Leicestershire, a fine day is forecast for this area today.
I will be at the CFR all day today, a normal Sunday running session is planned.

Norfolk - edge of nowhere.
Early morning greetings from the edge of nowhere. Just checking in before I start putting things out for today's village garage sale. I hope the weather holds out - it stopped raining about an hour ago. I see no point in trying to sell any garden railway stuff as most people usually expect something for nothing, price-wise. It may also prompt thoughts of nefarious nocturnal exploration among some of the axxxholes who live hereabouts. Shame you all live so far away as there is still much business to do.

Yards and yards of that would make a very good US type Elevated Railway, nice job. Morning all at least the rain managed to stay away for our operating session yesterday - well mostly nothing enough to cause a head for the Shed for the Trains but at one stage it was a close thing.

Good morning, All!
SW returns today! :eek: - Amazing, how far 'stuff' can spread, when you are having fun! ;):devil:

Twitch loves 'following' the early morning (just got up) coffee delivery train. - Living room branch. :D:D:D
Still, I suppose I had better pack the Playmobil track away, and do some shop-pain..? :think:

Morning All

I would like to start off by thanking you all for your best wishes for my eye op yesterday. It all went very well. This morning my eye feels a bit battered and bruised, I don't remember feeling that sore after the first op, even though it was more traumatic surgery. Dark glasses are the order of the day, for a few days, until my pupil returns to normal, bright light is quite painful. My fears have been allayed in that my normal vision is quite good, i could even read the newspaper this morning without too much problem, something I have struggled with recently. When I can get measured up for some new specs, in about six weeks time, I should be able to get back to some bird watching, although with the darker evenings, the young lady who lives opposite has taken to drawing her curtains earlier.

So, on to the Choice of the Day. I took the precaution of preparing a few in advance, in case my eyesight was not up to it, so you are not safe from it. Today's Choice is a crop, straightening and exposure tweak of a pic previously posted by AustrianNG, 12.12.2015. You can click on the link below to get back to the original post.

David, I'm really happy for you and the outcome of the op. If you have to wear shades for a while why not take up imitating Ray Charles or The Blues Brothers before you get back to your nocturnal ornithology? :clap:

Great news David at least you are out of the long and worrying times waiting for the op and results are looking positive. Nit sure what type of device you are using for access, but bright PC or iPad settings may not be the best for you these early days? I know my eyes get tired if I am too long on the PC or iPad. Just a thought and I am sure you would not want to undo any of the good that has been done for you. Though I am sure you would have quizzed the Doc about this.

As for the Bird watching, certainly the recent Op has had no effect on your humor or bad boy habits!

Good Day All. Things running a bit slow on the forums today. Tried to log in earlier but Safari wasn't up to the task. Anyway, it is a beautiful day today. Humidity way down and temps down in the low 80s.....:) Got more work done in the garage attic yesterday. The portion that will be a closet now has a floor and SWMBO and I moved all for most of the stuff into it. I will make sliding doors to conceal it all.

Afternoon all,
Good news David, glad it all went well. Just returned from a needed break in Cearnarfon, a few stormy nights, sounds worse than it was in a caravan! lots of gormless people wandering about in shops, it seems you don't need a face mask when your on holiday :rolleyes: did think of a railway based day out but all where operating on book in advance and as the weather was a bit wet or misty, we gave it a miss.
To sum up......Wind swept and interesting!!

SW has been at the WHHR this weekend..
Wales is full! - They reckon 600,000 compared with a norm of about 321,000

and yes, Pete..
Any rise in Covid case will depend on two paramters in a given are:
1. How dense the population is.
and..
2. How dense the population is.
:mask:

Off to do a little shop-pain.. :rolleyes:

InOtherNews:
How much do folks reckon for a Spektrum 2-truck Shay in tidy condition?
(I have cunning plan - maybe?) :wondering::lipssealed:

Any rise in Covid case will depend on two parameters in a given area:

2. How dense the population is.
:mask:
To find the density of any object, you need to know the Mass (grams) of the object, and its Volume (measured in mL or cm³). Divide the mass by the volume in order to get an object's Density.
Ain't Google wunnerful?
Anyway, there is much density, or duncity, out there :worried:
