. . . Donald Featherstone. Yes, I had a second very nice letter waiting in the mail for me from Mr. Donald Featherstone this afternoon! And he is interested in learning more about the Old School Wargaming Yahoo group. So, I guess I’ll just have to send another letter, explaining some more about all of us to him and supply the weblink. Wouldn’t it be neat to add Mr. Featherstone to our ranks at OSW? Funny the possibilities that come about when one revives the apparently lost art of letter writing.
As far as painting goes, I managed to get in a couple of hours on those last nine Spencer Smith cavalry. Just the faces and green bases so far, but they look more alive now than was the case a week ago. Tomorrow, it’s on to the white wigs, gauntlets, shoulder straps, and saddle cloth edges plus the tape on the tricorned hats.
On a humorous note, our cat “Rannveig” sat at my right elbow early this evening watching my every move with the paint brush. At one point, she stretched out an arm and rested her paw on my shoulder, withdrawing it when I looked at her and quietly said, “No”. A little later, she put her forepaws on my shoulder and stood up, looking into my face as I continued painting. Another “No” from me. Again, she sat back. Finally, she got bored and went away somewhere. Who knows? Maybe she thought that she was assisting. What goes on in the minds of felines?
