      JohnCaughey build 2017

      A thousand words follow .... 

      I need 5 bridges and a half way water tank is always a plus, now I can purpose my metal windmill!

       

      My junk box includes 2 sheets of those close out rough tile stones for the body and the quarry stones are for accents and arches and the vertical walls inside and there is a 20 # box of cement all in my shed ... I'm good to go.

       

      Thanks Dave, you're the best.

      John

      Paper towels are napkins for the overly messy

      But like my flowcharts in programming class. The designes usually stay in my head.

      Right you are! It took me a long time to find napkins that look like towels, I'm just so anti fashion set, I guess. 

      I'm already regretting the extra details I've implied! 

      This is how I wish it could look, (the original narrow one), but from 10' and squinting ... maybe.

       

      Hmmmm wonder if I should hang a CCC sign over the Taylor brick....

      Seeing so much ambition is like being at a Devon Convention... so I found an ace up my sleeve, just in case folks live up to their dreaming  

       

      Maybe there will be remnants of the framing used to form the arch...

      If I live up to mine, of course.      heh heh.

      Actually, we have been giving thought that if the gallows were built over a culvert, it could be a simple matter to add the gallows pole and trap door...

      2 days of rain and my workshop is exposed on the back deck .... a Professional Crastinator's dream!

      I put up work notices and 3 unlikely fellows showed up, they don't look like much, but when #2 lifted the cap stone above his head, they got the job.

       

      I know, I know it ain't real without pics ....

      Send me some sun, I hate paying for idle workers!

      I find that once you burn their hair off and paint them white, they make nice rope/cable that stays in whatever shape you bend it..., even a noose.

      My guys say they don't want to be ropes and they much more liked you when you were struggling with puberty

      Thanks to the real modelers here I misted my stones into something almost believable! Was too windy for pictures so I guess it was time wasted ... 

      Mebbe I'll bring  them back to life down the road...

      Sorry to be a tease, but Dave kinda insists we check in.... Hi Dave, just checking in.

      Short road;

      Edit; 'cause I be sneaky ... and needed time while they dried and I arranged them so neatly on an old drawing board. The self stick sand papers deal with the flash as I grab to glue

      Ha ha to the new kid ....
