Checking In...

Friends I have lost my focus.
Since my last post my Mother became ill and passed away. I guess I am the proof that regardless of how old you are, losing a parent is crushing.
She was a peace with dying, and Liz and I brought her to our home to care for her and allow her to die as comfortably as possible, surrounded by loved ones.

We've been dealing with our grief by remodeling our studio and painting the rest of the house.

I will return to all of this in the future. Cherish your friends and family, and take care of yourselves.

ACW Fences

I am planning to play some games of Johnny Reb this year. I am building fences to create better games. Below are some that I have just finished.

I cut strips of cardboard, glue them to the balsa base, flocked the raised area with ballast, cut strips of balsa and built the fences, painted brown, drybrushed grey, and flocked the base with grass.

I now have about 20' of fences; my goal is double that.
