March into Thursday

I've had an interesting week so far. Work, training, painting, military, work, athletics, eat,....
My kids are wrapping up winter sports and as they dive into school books, they have suddenly become aware that they haven't finished anything of note yet...perhaps soon Monday will get a glimpse of the myriad types of elves they have been working on.
It is ironic that they have dove in while I have slacked off.
In the early morning hours of Monday I capped February off in a grand way. I rolled my car down a steep Michigan hill on my way to work. I am entirely fine-ish( if miscellaneous aches and bruising are discounted) but alas the green beast LeSabre has expired.






My productivity has declined a bit even with the forced time off from doctor orders. I may post a picture of my handiwork later! ;)
I'm rather pleased to have retained my mortal coil and passed on visiting the Happy Hunting Grounds for the moment.
My kids are diving into their books and models now, and I suspect they appreciate just how fortunate we can be. Nobody suspects the Inquisition nor a random explosive deflation of a tire while negotiating a curve leading to a steep downgrade slope either! ;)
Hug your dears, enjoy the good things, and have fun viewing the spectacular eyecandy of the AHPC!
Simon has a post ready and Aaron has returned from his sojourn. I suspect that Aaron was busy preparing a fleet of B-17's as he has quite the carpet-bombing lined up. ( ok so they are 3mm B-17, but they are loaded with an eclectic mix of mini goodness!) I'm pretty sure a few others will show up too. I am working on a few RT models and various other Scifi troops and should have a modest post ready before Saturday.
The finish line fast approaches! Get those brushes blazing! ;)

  2. I knew I should have commented over breakfast - beaten into second place by Jamie! ;)

    A fleet of B17s? Not good enough - we want B52s, preferably named Fred, Cindy, Keith and Kate [and Ricky RIP] :)

  3. Ouch, that was bad. From your description it could have been a lot worse, but I am glad that you are alive and with us.

    1. Thankyou! I'm a touch stubborn, but not a good method for getting time off work!

  5. Geez, I'm very glad you came out of that safe and sound. On the bright side you get to re-evaluate the things that matter and shop for a replacement (and safer) set of wheels.

    1. Thank you, Curt! I've had few of those that would make me nervous if I was a feline. I have cemented the fact that I treat life and death situations with action and profanity. I used my entire repertoire and bit my tongue! ;)
      I was only fearful for my wife and her response, she took the photos and yes I was scolded...repeatedly! ;)
