Humpty Dumpty sat on a wallHumpty Dumpty had a great fallAll the King’s horses and all the King’s menCouldn’t put Humpty Dumpty together again.

I knew I should have bought a K-bar when they were on sale at Amazon. But, no, I think to myself, I think, “whatever would I use it for?”

As the power lines exist, they would either take off your head or electrocute you when you walked across the deck. The trench was dug, conduitContinue reading “Trench First”
“Unit A” became “Unit Alpha” has become “Alpha Unit”. I’m working on a unit patch, but I suck at digital art, so it’s taking a while. Meanwhile, the breezeway is the next remodeling target. It’s an odd space. It’s the entrance to the house with the screen door a mere 12 feet from the actualContinue reading “Alpha Unit – Breezeway”
