I'm back online today.
I was awake yesterday at 1am and couldn't get back to sleep. I feel sorry for roofers who always work with shingles, it must be a tough life.
I got Abbey out for a downtown walk yesterday.
I made a thin board from a 2x4 to place the the trunk on the covered wagon.yesterday. The Queen says I'm faking my vision problems when I slice an 1/8th inch thick piece from a 2x4 by hand. What a silly time to get into miniaturization. I'll have to have a closer look at the rifle my uncle carved and see if I can replicate it. I can't leave those settlers with out a means to get fresh meat. I guess the next item will be a small 1 furrow plow to break the prairie grass and make a garden. :) I'll have to find another horse though.
With the high abbove freezing today I'll get Abbey out sfter my visit with the doctor. By now he should have the results from the echo cardiogram and the MRI.

Was just thinking Tony, (yup I do that occasionally) when you finish this project, you may want to build a little log cabin and furnish it accordingly too with a stone fireplace...oh that would be so cool!!!!

Good morning Tony, good luck with the doc today. Maybe you should be thinking about making a few bow and arrows for the settlers. I am sure at the time the west was just starting to be settled, they used those too as taught by the friendly natives. Snowshoes are a must as well as a few trap lines...why not go for the gusto...ROFLMBO Oh and heaven forbid you don't add a few pots for the lady to cook with. Bottle caps are good for those, just paint them black after you have shaped them. Remember to throw in a few blankets too...if I remember correctly there should always be a few barrels of foodstuff that attach to the side of the wagon as well.



Well dear one, I am sure there is enough to keep you out of mischief for a while. Have a great day and once again I hope the doc has good news for you.
