When visiting some friends, we played Life, you know, the old board game. We wondered what to do after life. I got to thinking about it, and I decided we should play Afterlife. I made them the game and sent it to them.
I painted the board with different places to spend your afterlife.
I made stars to use in place of money. You collect stars throughout the game.
These are the cards that let you know if you get stars or not.
And these are the playing pieces, little ghosts made from electronic tubes.
Yesterday was a wonderful day in Old Village!
There were cars,
and more cars,
It’s today, from 11 to 3, c’mon down!
There’s a silent auction
and lots to see!
It’s just getting started.
I have a friend who wanted a likeness of Picasso’s Don Quixote painted on his bike badge. Fortunately, he didn’t want Sancho on the badge, the badge is really small. I hand painted Don, his horse Rocinante, and a larger windmill on it. Now Scott can tilt at windmills.
Now that I’ve given it to him, perhaps the song will quit running through my head.
We have a friend in the market for a new house, so we checked out the one he’s thinking about.
It’s a big house, and has lots of windows.
These are two of the best windows.
Mark gives opinions, Jim listens.
The house comes with its own plaque.
That’s what I’ve been up to. Steve, our painter, Mark, and I have been painting. Mostly Steve and Mark, but I’ve done some, and this is the result:
The gingerbread is in bad shape, and way too expensive to replace right now, but the rest of the house looks good. I really like the colors we chose.
