The path is too narrow to turn around.

I'm the king of my own land.
Facing tempests of dust, I'll fight until the end.
Creatures of my dreams raise up and dance with me!
Now and forever, I'm your king!
M83 lyrics from "Outro"

I am, indeed, a king, because I know how to rule myself.

Sculpting stand/box from backside showing a tile in the platen of the multangular jointed mount.

Another view of new sculpting box.

Lid lifts off and reveals removable tray of tools and decided deeper storage under that!

New portable "laptop" sculpting center. Decorative molding keeps tools from rolling off ... And keeps shavings in control.

This is an experiment to encourage charitable giving in exchange for hard to find information.

Any charity is fine... My favorite is Lions Club International but any school, church, food bank, animal shelter , etc. Is a worthy cause!

The serpent, the king, the tiger, the stinging wasp, the small child, the dog owned by other people, and the fool: these seven ought not to be awakened from sleep.

Pic took yesterday

Janet took this picture yesterday... On Big T's 8 week birthday... And the day he died. Sad, but good pic. We never know :-(

Big T- Rest in Peace

Big T got sick yesterday on his 8 week birthday,  and died last night before we could get him to the vet. He ate, then threw-up. A couple hours later he started having seizures and died in Tammy's lap about 10pm last night.

When we named him Big T for Big Trouble he was the biggest of the litter, but by the time they were  weaned off the bottle he was only 1/2 the size of his litter mates.

Despite his size he was a loving kitty with an big appetite for his size. We had planned to keep him as he was such a joy to be around.

It's amazing how quickly one gets attached. Even though we only had him 2 months, over 1/2 that time was spent bottle feeding them individually in the lap.

You'll be missed Big T !
