         But if I collect a lot of junk I probably won't find it until after the deadline!

      MIK's 2019

      Build Challenge

       

      2019 will be the 10th anniversary of the Challenge ( can you believe it? ).

      We've done so many things along the line.  And this next challenge will have no excuses from any of the builders.

      Start hoarding the stuff, and stashing away the eitty bitty pieces,  cause you very well may need them this year.

      Our "napkins" are paper towels so I can usually find a supply!

      Damn it John, Sorry to hear that.

       

      I hope I will be recovering from surgery or at the very least looking forward to having it. But I am looking toward the challenge.

      I worry more about you than about me. My support team is confident and happy that I caught this one early.

      Damn! It just dawned on me I'm scheduled for eye surgery January 29. I used my computer for a napkin last year but I'm always spilling food and/or drink on it, so I think that qualifies ...

      Unless something extremely bad happens my hat will be in the the ring. The MIK challenge is one of the highlights of my year.

      I formally used paper towels because all my great ideas seemed to run on and on.

      Evolution has refined my scope and while still finding a roll format desirable, the TP roll better exemplifies the result. As it were...
