  1. well it was the first cool weekend of the fall. i was intending to do some yard work but then it decided to rain this morning. so instead i made some miniature holders... they are still a work in progress Then I baked some cookies... Oatmeal scotchies followed by cardamom lemon zest cookies. both will be made again but i think i need to make the cardamom/lemon ones bigger! I think the scotchies are the generals and the cardamom cookies are infantry!
  2. @Evilhalfling wow, Sorry to hear that. It sad when another fighter goes down. I am glad you got to spend some time with him before the end. I hope he stays with you in spirit.
  3. Sorry to hear that @ShadowRaven I'll keep you and your friend in my thoughts and prayers Force feeding? ID10-T? Intravenous protein injection Some weird new home remedy for Covid?
  4. thats a great job! I have some of these, i need to paint them...
  5. really nice shot! it sums up autumn beautifully fall is also the time of harvest and relaxing, of beer and celebrations, a time to reap the rewards of the year. Its my favorite season of the year, easily beating out spring and summer and more closely beating out winter. Its just sad for me that it seems to pass so quickly... okay since you all decided to bring it up and someone dragged out the punchline: A witch is nailing a lion into a wardrobe. a child walks by and asks "what are you doing?" the Witch responds: "Narnia business!"
  6. that's a MAAAAAAAAD paint job! though i want to know how you got the goat to not eat what its wearing! Nice job.
  7. being at the end of the run, most of my things will go back to @Inarah and have to go around again before anyone gets to them. so it goes. Looking forward to seeing the box again and all the goodies people find! Rob
  8. After grumbling about how I missed this, I began reading nice little military meets magic to save the world with an interesting take on dragons. So far my experience has been overwhelmingly positive. Looking forward to the rest of the series. also reading Penric and the Shaman by Louis McMaster Bujould which is always a fun romp. who doesnt want 10 new personallities in their head (12 if you count the lioness and the mare) and the ability to use magic. That wont frighten anyone, will it? and just to round out my reading, i am trying to catch up on the latest books in the Liaden universe. currently on Accepting the Lance by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller. The series is a long running space opera spanning multiple universes and following the family destined to save or destroy all of them. It can get a little thick as the authors love to add new hooks and strings (Agent of change is the [sort of] first book and a pretty good place to start.) but they are coming to a climax (again) as the threads from about 8 different plotlines are coming home to roost. and unless you include Darkness over Stillwater and a few other RPG books, thats been my reading for the last couple of days...
  9. just for the record: I dont want to Monday! this has been a public service announcement.
  10. <*with great loathing*> TURNIPS. large smelly strong flavored TURNIPS. That is what rutabagas taste like...
  11. @redambrosia I'm sorry for your loss. My prayers and hopes for better times are with you
  12. Ugh. Life just seems to get more interesting. On the plus side last night I got to sleep longer and deeper than I have in months. I woke actually rested and it felt weird. Took advantage of it to clean the kitchen floor. Spent the day just reading and relaxing (how the Heck have I missed the tales of Bazil Broketail?) and finished the day off by spending the evening over at a friend's house playing board games. Which is where life gets Interesting. I discover on the way home that either I am suddenly allergic to cats, I have the worst timing for sinus issues out of nowhere or 3 of my teeth suddenly developed very painful issues. Took 2 Sudafed and 2 of the 3 teeth stopped being a problem. The third is why I'm still awake (okay that and I wanted to finish off a Penric novel... not my fault they are finally letting me travel again and traveling leads to reading...is it?) Bother. INSAIDS are the most effective for this but between. Empty stomach and kidney issues I'm not supposed to take them. Oh well. To bed and hope for the best
  13. hey if the old guy wants to take one for the team, more power to him! Joe has been itching for a little action and is happy to see it come his way.
  14. Joe just quietly sighs and mutters here we go... He looks wistfully at the remainder of his lunch and heads off to see where this adventure will lead. Things were getting a little dull around here anyway! If he happens to get by Crystal for a moment he will murmur in a surprisingly singsong sotto voice I get the girl, but why are you protecting the suit? He wants to stand infront of a wall full of death, let him and good riddance. I will follow the miss and see that she doesnt get into too much trouble With that he grins and takes off after miss Van Horton and the bridge
  15. Honestly, I have seen worse prices for ammunition. loading a chain for a belt fed gun could be rather tedious though...
  16. terrific! glad everything made it okay! Hope you have a great time with them and i get to see them painted eventually!
  17. Appreciate it. Problem is I never feel better than when my meds aren't working. Way too much energy and drive 😀 but I'm still here and still able to enjoy life and try new things and with my new meds my immune system just got a bunch of new weapons and issued a draft notice conscripting all other cell production. We will have to see what happens... Thanks for that! Everything counts That is pretty much how I live, well that and as my better half puts it being too stubborn to die. Me, I prefer to think of it as a vested interest in seeing what happens next....
  18. Well, not the worst news i could get but not the best either. basically the tumor showed growth but there is no sign of spread so i will take my blessings as i get them. The tumor is now about the size of a baseball (started 7 years ago as a walnut). at least is doesnt show any sign of spreading. they are temporally putting me on a heavier medication before moving me to an alternate med next month after it gets approved. Such is the joy of being a chronic paitient, as i am sure many here know all to well.
  19. Me too! . Have my doubts though. I will call it a win if the thing hasn't spread.
  20. @Green Eyed Monsty sorry to hear you have had so much fun. You have a first for me though. I never heard of a storage place that wouldnt take money. Lose it later perhaps, but never one that wouldnt take it ... @Kuroneko The gods of Scottish weather also have a soft spot for me: I have been to Scotland on business about 5 times in the last 10 years and every time I have had at most 1 or 2 rainy days, the rest were sun and stunning beauty. And if anyone cares to wish me luck, I have a CT scan evaluation today. Probably going to be bothersome but not critical news but I could use some good vibes...
  21. Well, I did make a little progress I didn't get anything new started but at least a few things got finished. I may have to rethink the bunny's eyes though, the purple did not come through well in the picture...
  22. Trying to motivate myself to paint. cant seem to get in the mood. most of my local games have stalled with the resurgance of covid and i just cant get any motivation together.
  23. Quite the project! nice job on that task!
  24. I've always liked this sculpt but every time i pull it out i keep trying to figure out ways to have puppies or little kids pulling on its tentacles!
