  1. Zero. I am retired; ergo, I don't have an alarm clock. What passes for a brain puts my old body in motion around 5 AM everyday.
  2. I finally had some stuff to photograph. Tree #2 has all its branches twisted & Tree #3 is on its way. The Shrine is now base coated as well: I also have the understructure for Tiltin'Town, a Howl's Moving Castle inspired bit of Swamp scenery: More whenever.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion, snitchythedog. I am always looking for different ways of doing things. I am gaining momentum. The second of the trees has all its branches twisted & the third one is underway. There are some bases in the works as well.
  4. My favorites change from time to time. I do prefer snacks that have no nutritional value whatsoever, but taste WONDERFUL.
  5. My beverage of choice for cold weather is black coffee...it's my beverage of choice in hot weather as well. I don't seem to have any heat related memories from my misspent youth. That is just another indication that it was misspent.
  6. Now that is something I hadn't thought of. The Swamp Trees might not be the best type of tree for fruit. but a couple of fruit trees by the Witches' compound would work. I could do some of the fruit with faces. Singing pears would have pear shaped tones I suppose.
  7. Thanks for the reply, Wolf. I got a little carried away with the branches. I a pleased with the look; SO I will continue getting carried away with the rest of the Trees. Thanks, Glitter. I am glad you like it thus far. I have some ideas for new twists to the Trees & Mushrooms, Personable Shelf Mushroom will be the next species to emerge. They will give the Trees some one to chat up or be chatted up by.
  8. There are a few from Edward Suren's Harlequin range (Napoleon in Egypt), One in particular is the Savant on a Donkey. There are a few from Edward Suren's Harlequin range (Napoleon in Egypt), One in particular is the Savant on a Donkey.
  9. That happens all the time; except when I can't remember why I am in the kitchen.
  10. I never have made a New Years resolution. If I was inclined to, the best bet would be to swear off things I don't do like bull fighting, sky diving, & Brussel sprout binges.

  11. Like a few other Folk, I wouldn't replace anything. I don't think of myself as a collector & it has been too long since last I played a game of any sort to consider myself a gamer. I enjoy creating things. SO I would just take the opportunity to move on to doing new stuff & probably take a different take on the stuff I make.
  12. I did receive training out of state when I was in the Navy & attached to the Marines. Other than that, no. Not that I have noticed.
  13. "This month Friday the thirteenth fell on a Thursday."...Pogo While I would like to think that I wasn't superstitious, there are a few superstitions that seem valid. Most of them pertain to baseball...baseball can at times be a pretty spooky game.
  14. COFFEE...NEED COFFEE! Often I will have a glass of Spicy V8 as well; it is my concession to a healthy start of the day.
  15. I LOVE quite a variety of Cookies, but Chocolate Chips are THE BEST.
  16. I finally finished twisting the branches on Tree #1. You can get a better idea of just how many branches are involved from the top view: Doing the clay sculpt on the trunk & larger branches & glue gun teasing the smaller branches & roots is next. This one will be getting a face as well. Then there will be another eleven or so trees to make...sigh. SO until next time...
  17. I check my balance & now that I have moved 1.200 or so miles away from my local branch most every thing is done on-line. When I lived in Texas, I LOVED dropping into the Horseshoe Bay office; re, the Girls working there were & are WONDERFUL people. The visits always cheered me up. I left quite a large piece of my heart in their lobby.
  18. 8: while I can no longer hear music, I LOVED quite a lot of genres from Opera to Acid Rock and just about everything in between. Folk was probably my favorite. I can still play the music I enjoyed through my head. 9: Only when I start singing along with what is playing in my head. I do that quite often.
  19. On the self isolating thingy: I can identify.
  20. Melissa got me a pair of fleece lined moccasin slippers that were too narrow. She will be exchanging them for a wider pair. As I have gotten older (than dirt), I noticed that I lost a couple of inches in height & my feet have gotten wider. I believe I am melting. Eventually, should I live to be old enough, I will be about 4'6" & my feet will be circular pizza sized appendages.
  21. Thanks, Wolf. I am glad you like the Swamp ideas. I sure hope it is fun to watch it evolve. It is fun making the stuff & day dreaming about possibilities. One thing that was suggested to add was snakes. I think the Tall Tales variety of snakes would be suitably whimsical for the setting:
  22. Thanks, Standifer. They are a bit time consuming AND the silver wires are sharp. Thanks, Corsair. I am happy you like them. There will eyeballs, Spanish moss, faces, various mushrooms, & possibly snakes in the mix. Thanks, Glitter...glad you like it. You can count on things going forward...when is questionable however.
  23. Thanks, Corsair...I LOVE being called Grandpa. Thanks, haldir. I am glad that my Time Bandits remind you of the Giant...VERY COOL!
