The 1791 Thinkshop and 87 Ideas Workshop

Front door for the second half of my life using my time while disabled to study theology, dabble in my shop, and advocate for Liberty and Veterans who suffer with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Severe Memory Impairment, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumas, and those with Crohn's Disease and Seizure Disorder. Of course too I may muster the courage to begin my Scale Models again but fight tremor so bad that it maybe something best to just hang up and sell off. I've lost nearly every enjoyable skill and struggle with the idea of "doing it at all if I can't do so to the ability I once had". I'm most busy with doctors appointments and maintaining my 125 Year Old Home, but also pursue working in my shop and have unreasonable thoughts about once again building quality scale models. Basically its My Shop, Ranting, Retirement, and More… This blog was begun right before my health, career, and entire life's direction was wildly changed, so though the page is 6+ years old, it is bare boned.



Christmas Day/Anniversary

  Ok, so I got too caught up yesterday to redact or add to my post…  We had a delicious dinner last night of sliced pork loin with sautéed peppers and artichoke hearts.  Afterwards, Wendy and I uncorked a bottle of wine and the girls commenced to doing gifts.  Allyson and Taylor were very happy to be sure….  Of course we had to play with things as they were unwrapped.  Wendy has given me a beautiful Bulova watch for Christmas/Anniversary and I of course have built her the tiled buffet she asked for.  Afterward we all played one of Allyson’s new board games and off to bed everyone went.

  This morning Allyson Rose was slow to rise, so much so that Wendy and I were already downstairs before she made a peep.  Since discovering the dollhouse that Santa brought to her overnight, she hasn’t moved to do anything but Christmas dinner.  Playing with the dollhouse is all that she’s interested in.  Wendy made a wonderful dinner with the ham that my parents had sent to us.  We had sweet potato fluff, a veg-all, biscuits, mashed potatoes, and gravy. 

  Now we’ll sit around watching Allyson play while awaiting the coming blizzard.  While we really wish Devon were here, I think that this has been a great Christmas and Anniversary.  We must also not forget that there are many Marines fighting for their lives and the lives of others in the Helmand Provence of Afghanistan for the opportunity to return home to their loved ones.  Merry Christmas to all!

What’s for Christmas Dinner?
