Tonight will be partly cloudy with a low of 8C( 46F). The wnds less than 8kmp(5 mph).

yesterday I got another medal to be polished off of the board they were mounted on. Years ago my BIL had had them Court mounted. What a task it was removing them. Luckily the glue I had used to attach them in the shadow box was water soluble and the residue came off easily with cool water and dish soap. :) Today I'll remove the yellowed urethane and re polish the medal.

looks like you're having nice fall weather, perfect for a day on the gopher trails with Abbey!

Good luck on the medals!

Good morning Tony. Sounds like its a labor of love working on those old medals. Glad you have these wonderful mementos.

Its a balmy 59F at the moment, lots of sunshine here as all the storms and wet weather is well south of me. No complaints.

Hope you have a great day and are able to get out with Abbey for your walk.
