More Painting and Some Grand Ducal Misadventures to Follow. . .

Here's a fantastic view of the Minneapolis skyline from the old Stone Arch Bridge, which used to take passenger trains across the mighty Mississippi River, to and from the Great Northern Railway Station. My old apartment was about half a mile to the right of this photo. I used to walk, ride my bike, and sometimes ski across this bridge several times each week.


Well, Blogger still is not accepting/publishing my pasted in Word text. Hell and damnation! But anyway, where in the world did September go? It seems like I just turned around, and all of the sudden it's Fall! No matter, Autumn is my favorite time of the year with its crisp, chilly temperatures, and lovely colors.

And speaking of colors, please continue to watch this space over the next several days for further developments with the current crop of figures. Then, of course, there will be a few new developments in the continuing misadventures of the Grand Duke Irwin-Amadeus II and his English manservant Hives along with those grand ducal canines, the Portugese Water Dogs Max and Moritz.

From tomorrow, the fair Grand Duchess and I will be off to Minneapolis-St. Paul (our old stomping grounds -- Yea!!!) for a conference. And I'm taking along some writing materials too, so I will be able to catch up on some of the recently negleected Grand Duchy of Stollen campaign narrative. See you next week after our return!
