Happy Fourth of July!

There was a Fourth of July Celebration here in town. I joined in the Bicycle Parade, and got some practice in low speed maneuvering. And then I got hear some…

I saw the movie "Jersey Boys" tonight

I enjoyed the movie and the history of the Four Seasons. It was kind of sad when the band broke up. Maybe the thought of break ups make me think too much.

I got some good playing time in today

I got my camera working

So now I can post more photos. I got a little bit done on #14 and #15. As long as I am waiting, I started putting some pieces to get for #16. It should be the same size as #14…

it's always something...

   My cell phone has off for a couple months. Yeah, times are tight right now. But the camera was still working, until today.
