Music for A Saturday


Every once in a while I like to listen to John Pine's song, "Dear Abby." It's humorous and does contain some lyrics that make me laugh out loud. So, I'm sharing the lyrics that I found on:


Please take a moment to listen and read the words.

It's Saturday and tonight the Richmond Spider basketball team faces the George Mason Patriots. They are at 13-3 and we are at 10-5. Go Spiders!

Boxes, Barrels and Basketball

 I've finished the boxes and barrels and I'm pleased the way they turned out. They fit well with my collection. 

Next on the project list will be some more "Russian Log Houses." With some minor conversion they look like "Colonial" log houses. The first set I painted turned out well. 

From there I'll add a couple more Coureurs des Bois units. So, I'll be busy for awhile.

The VCU Rams won the Atlantic 10 Tournament. They now advance to the NCAA Tournament. Although my Richmond Spiders didn't make it this year, we still have a Richmond team to cheer for.

Enjoy the day ....

A Tuesday Morning

 Good morning,

It's been a few months since my last entry. Figured it was time to write again.

Life is good and we are all healthy. 

I'm working on painting some barrels for my village of Briartun, New York. Once I'm finished with the barrels, I'll add some boxes and mount them. Photos will be taken and posted here.

The weather here in Moseley is not too bad. 51 degrees and some drizzle. We won't be able to enjoy the sun until Friday. But it is winter and I'm thankful we have no snow.

Enjoy the day ....
