Canvassing the Waterfront

Departmental budgetary allowances for undercover gear were quite limited for members of the constabulary in the old port town. Still, it was something of a surprise for Constable Benhardie to find that Constable Wilburton had chosen the exact same rig

An Early Goodbye

In my last post I mentioned that I had multiple computers running multiple operating systems. One of these machines, arguably my most powerful, has been the de-facto backup machine and my day-to-day work and play machine. It is the machine

Day 16: Chickens

The instructions for making these chickens were simply ‘cut out the shapes and glue them to the egg’.  If only it had been that easy. I couldn’t get the shapes to stick properly and the blessed eggs couldn’t be persuaded

Tripod 16/29

Every day I am going to throw an object up in the air ten times. I am going to film myself doing it and select ten frames where the object is covering my face and make an animated gif.

Day 16: Champagne, mint and chocolate

It sounds like a party, but it actually is a bracelet. Sure enough, it’s something you would wear at a party, but the title it also comes from the colors involved. This is for today! Have a good one, Anca

The instructor at the vacuum forming class had a great mold for a bust of a lion’s head.  I fabricated the shape from his design in PET-G plastic, went home, and made a bunch of chocolate lions.

My camera, Picasa and I have been mighty close today. I think this has to be today’s thing–since I have time for nothing else. My young Etsy shop now has 20 items in it. Phew!

Spent the afternoon on a self-guided, private tour of the old jail in Danbury. OK, so maybe I just skulked around before anyone protested. I am not ENTIRELY sure they encourage tours.

I was so excited to see my neighbors had an owl in their tree. I ran and grabbed the camera and quietly sneaked in for a closer shot of their bird deterrent. DOH.

Better late than never. Went out of town at the start of the month and then have just been in a creative funk. Until yesterday. So I hope catch-ups are allowed. My Thing-a-day has no theme or even a set

Today I made an ancient game for a group of kids. It’s easy, it is great for mixed ages or sizes or speeds of people, and you can build a Fox & Geese path in snow or sand or sticks
