Cowpoke Kendo. I like that image, you riding the range wearing an impossibly huge hat.

More like me on a 4-wheeler wearing a baseball cap...with a beer in a koozie.

Got a surprise for my garden today.  One of my sister's friends dropped off two lemongrass plants.  She grows them as an ornamental plant in flower beds?  Whuddever; I have lemongrass now.  And my 'Ci

Finally started re-building my 28mm French & Indian War collection. Sold off my old collection a few years back since my painting skills have advanced so much further since I did the original figu

Finished up a giant pile of Star Wars minis this past week. 12-year old me was very excited  about this job!

Scratch built a bank for my miniature Western collection. Had the most fun with the safe.

You should do the saloon from Tombstone.

The garden is doing far better than last year.

Spoiler
  • I have so many fruit and blossom sets on the Roma tomatoes that I've had to tie them up twice to keep the branches off the ground; that's even with the lower branches trimmed up by about a foot.  It may be a 'bumper crop'.
  • All the potatoes set bloom maybe two weeks ago (a month ahead of schedule).  They'll probably start dying back by late May or early June and be ready to dig.  Hopefully I'll have enough Summer left to do a crop of beans in the potato beds.
  • Squash and beans are doing their thing and there was enough green on the onions to cut them back.
  • Everything else is on schedule.

The bank was inspired by one in Tombstone that I took lots of photos of when I was there.

This one is from a few years back that I constructed, inspired by Tombstone's famous Birdcage Theater:

I have a large saloon interior that I built years back for replicating Barroom Brawls in miniature. But I want to do a new one now that my skills have improved.

Whitney has taken over the steers.  They like her better than me anyway.  She talks baby talk to them and they follower her around like dogs.
