More random stuff

An interesting birding blog that I ran across.

Pics click, to enlarge.

A "before and after" imagining of the bass project. Good old MS paint.

I wanted to see how these antlers would look on this mask, so I needed some way to stabilise the rack. I used modeling clay to hold them in place for a moment, but they were far too heavy. I eventually sawed off the handle on my snow shovel and screwed the rack onto that, so I could paper the mask on.

The antlers are really big and heavy; slightly atypical and asymmetrical.
I'm surprised that a hunter would have tossed these out, but I found them at the town dump. Dad and I were in the metal section, getting rid of some junk from the shed.

They were a little banged-up, but they went straight into the pickup as soon as I saw them.

My photo-hoster, Zoto.com had been upgrading or backing up their servers, and not all pics were available; looks like everything's back up.

Hey, whaddayaknow, your site does render better with FireFox! ;)

Bass is coming along nicely. Is it really riding the deathbike, or is that just the perspective? I love the little MS Paint embellishments.

By the by, those antlers were a great save!!

Yay Firefox.
