"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

My Slow Takes (vol. 14)

1. We were on the beach Sunday and I found it interesting just watching the different people. Some tall, some short and some average in height. The body shapes varied from a little over weight to those who appeared to have spent time exercising. Hair styles were short, long and in between. A few had no hair. Colors varied and provided a walking rainbow much like watching a pageant. 

Characters for any writer to use. All I had to do was watch and observe how they walked, how they interacted with each other and pay attention to their mannerisms. 

2. I spent time painting some historical miniatures on Tuesday. The current project is two sets of Scottish pipers with drummers and flag bearers. One set is for my friend David and the other one will be mingled into my command stands or something. 

After completion of them I need to work on a Colonial artillery unit and Brigade commander. These are required for my game at Cold Wars next March.

3. Wednesday night we got into a discussion about humorous classic movies. The top two were "Young Frankenstein" and "Princess Bride." It was fun acting out our favorite scenes and laughing about the story lines.

4. Sunday was a busy day. Dee made sauce before before church because everyone was coming over at one for an early dinner. Afterward we went to the Church picnic where the grandchildren jumped around on all the inflatable bouncers. There was ice cream and popsicles for desert. Our friend Dan passed out helium balloons providing a variety of colors that seemed to please everyone.

It was a good football day as well. The Buffalo Bills and the Washington Redskins both won.
