Ahhh. . . I've just place an order with Berliner Zinnfiguren in Germany for the above item, which will complete my transport/logistics and pontoon trains. Ok, who am I kidding? There are a couple of Perry wagons/carts that I want to add down the road, but for now, we'll call it done.
The current wagons and carts have been waiting patiently for some time over on the apinting table as I dig out from beneath various student assignments, planning for classes four days a week, and work I've been involved with in planning for this year's intitiation ceremony for the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. Rewarding once the day arrives, the ceremony happens, and it's done for another year, but a royal pain in the neck (some days) when it comes to planning, organizing, and endless rounds of e-mail back and forth with student invitees and colleagues involved in the planning.
The end of the semester is just weeks away, when somewhat more routine hobby activities can resume, but it feels like years. I'd love to just chuck it all and give myself a free weekend to paint wagons and horse teams, but my conscience hurts me at the mere thought of doing that. Sigh.
