I got (what I hope) was my last stretch today, so I can eat semi-normally again. All I need to do is wait for my new surgery scheduled for the 22nd. Hopefully it will get everything squared away and I can get back to normal.
My project pile is shrinking just a wee bit, I started working on several items to include a walking staff for my sister-in-law, a renovation on a sword for my messmate Chris, and re-gripping two cutlasses for myself.
I have also tried to catch up on my reading. Still working on historical tomes (I am delving into the history of the Russian/Finnish war of 1939-1940) but also a bunch of other stuff. I am re-reading some of Col. Jeff Cooper's works, and just to break the trend, I added a wee bit of brain candy. I got a copy of Monster Hunters International as well as The Zombie Survival Guide from Rick and Miss Nancy for Christmas. I have just finished M.H.I. ( A cracking good read) and have started T.Z.S.G. This monster stuff is pretty good escapist stuff. Takes me back to the days of my youth and it's monster movies and models. I have my eye on two other volumes that I might get, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Miss Nancy is reading that one now) and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.
And so it goes..............
