Artistry

My wife has been puttering around in her little hobby room at home for the past week or so, which is nice, because that means I can reload ammo without having to worry about being called in to do a myriad of honey-does that seem to come up a lot. Well, she popped her head into the garage last night and said that I had to hurry and come inside to see what she'd done.

Well, she definitely did something!



She gussied up my circa 1895 Harrington and Richardson "The American"! Now, that's way better than anything that I could come up with. My artistic talents lean more toward stick figures or maybe, on a good day, paint-by-numbers. How 'bout that!

Hardcase - she did a great job! She's obviously a "keeper" so treat her nice - I think this deserves a nice dinner out! Not only will you enjoy looking at this . . . the fact that she was so thoughtful will make it even more special!

Very cool, it's great when you get the ball and chain involved in your hobbies.
