  1. Badder " I'm just hearing on the grapevine that you meant lanolin. Tut. Those typos eh?" Ahh yes . You wise gramerian you. Confound those pesky vowels and consents they are truly the bain of a creative mind such as mine . However I have an excuse - Reason- yeah, thats it. The dog barked just as I was setting fingers to keyboard and in the ensuing wild commotion I was unable to ---uh--that is to say, I wasn't paying attention to the text in regards to proofreading every line----and so the dog is now banished to his bed, whenever I sit down to contact you and to once again revel in the warm glow of your creative genius. (cock-cough-cough sorry there must have been a bit lint in me airway) Regardless, the most recent of you posts is an inspiring use of coffee stirrers. Though, I never cease to be amazed that the UK has, coffee stirrers, to presumably, stir Coffee. Which begs the question, does one use a "Tea stirrer" for that beverage ? Then there is Hot Chocolate, so do they too have a specific stirring device ? Hot Cider? Wassail at the Christmas events?---my mind simply reels (NOT a totally unusual occurrence, I might add) . How-sum-ever (a native American colloquialism-replacing "howsoever" in the scattered rural hinterlands of my land). The use to of the jig is inspired. You may rest assured, I have had my top Engineering staff, the best Draftsmen, the Mold makers as well as Tool and Die makers, all hard at it to recreate, as well we can, your device. Truth be told there is really only me but I multitask like a Beaver in the Spring. As always, wishing you good times, sunny days, and the skills to be happy . --------- As sound of me stirring my coffee on my desk, is heard in the background. Swish,swish, swish swish.
  2. Badder Once again I was trapped in my Covid bunker the darnd steel door rusted shut and I had left my only 20 Liter can of "Rust-Cutting-Through-When -All-Else-Fails" and whale oil, fluid, in the room on the other side. Well needless to say I found a way out at last, (the bruises from the ordeal should be healed about the time this missive reaches you). I also assume the packet ship got underway in good order, despite the typhoon and reported small fire in the armory. Regardless; to the pint er- point of my communique. I was able to catch up with you current progress and not surprisingly am once again "gobsmacked" (so much fun the quaint expressions one learns) by you progress. Good Job all 'round. Well I must start the carding of the sheep's wool to begin once again the spinning of needed thread to make my new face mask material (which once the smell of laloin dissipates, works quite well) So for now, fair winds calm seas and good health- Covid be damned. Seriously for a moment- you latest wall/tile/lumber construct seems to have surpassed many of those that have gone before. The progress and the "style" on creating stones seems to have matured and looks the better for it. Stall well
  3. Badder Many thanks for the illumination of the antecedents of my native tong. As you may have surmised, we of the American (i.e. U.S.) lingual im-perfect are always delighted to find that many of our words do indeed have a meaning, let alone a real historical provenance. As to your currant non-use of the barbaric sharp blade in scrapping the skin of your of your worthy countenance, I say, Wha-Hoo! Well done! I too for some years have allowed the world to marvel at my comely bearded appearance. This has proven to cause much delight to nubile young women ah, I mean small sparrows, humming birds and the like-sigh, ah well. Regarding the currant state of you construction. Very fine work. The thing that keeps me enthralled is your ability to create such life-like components out of such every day materials. So in closing, I wish you well in your newly, opened pubs and hope you will not be a "gad-fly" among the many, no doubt hoping for your patronage. As I go to re-raise the plague flag over my humble underground bunker/ root cellar. I salute you. Eruditi posui in vestibulo
  4. Badder By Gad sir! I see great progress in the redoing of the redone section of the completed or at least of the previously constructed wall to wall and roof to peak, shingled boards that aren't, BUT could be...... (pant, puff) To carry on- most impressive workings. The dish soap-dust-color (sorry, colour) recipe is now indelibly written on to the last bit of flash paper I have, from a past experiment -best left unspoken of. To see this progress to date may indeed silent those knaves that whisper twixt each other " ya think 'ell finish afore the kor-ved ends er aft-tor?" Pay them no mind, oh Great Manipulator of Fibers and Such! They are indeed ner-do-wells that have no skills of their own. Well the alarm is going off here , so its time for me to close me subterranean bunker door and set once again the anti-personal munitions. Good seeing you work as always and always. Partes eae contra Vigilantium manet in facitis* *Remain Vigilant, the Value is in the Doing, I think
  5. Howdy right back at you Badder. Yes "howdy" is still heard . Though usually relegated more to the "midwest" areas of the country. That being any area between the Eastern Seaboard and the Rocky Mountains and the Canadian to Mexican borders. Its usage is less prominent among the our local SoCal "native" population (which, truth be told, are emigrants from all parts of the U.S. and the entire rest of the world.) Only a tiny percentage were actually born here; making the term "native"a totally subjective one. However, as a "native" one must be ever vigilant to instantly switching to the very latest trends, styles, moods, newest gadgets, most popular of anything, etc., etc, ad nauseum. This could possibly occur several times a day. All overshadowed by the really, really important issues of how to stay young, viberant, with it, cool, and fashion forward, "trending" on the social media. sigh- I'm so lacking. But I have learned to feign indifference as I don't want give much thought to it at all. Regardless, as to your current progress. It is mind boggling and very impressive. I think the thing that strikes me is, the ever evolving nature and scope of the project. I congratulate you on the fine progression. We are all well, hale and hearty. Hope this finds you and yours the same.
  6. Badder- not much time; the Regimental Buggiler has just sounded "To Horse". So I much dash. re: your latest brick bats uh, works, may I say brilliant. It is so good to see that the ol' "Minitruest Extraordinaire " has once again broken through the barrier of ennui and begun to once again stride forward into the future. The bricks look like the real deal and the ideas generated from those changes should be grist for your next adventuer. All hail the conquering hero--------oops too much? Oh well.
  7. Very Interesting. Just so I can grasp the unrivaled genius of your current work. You put debris down, didn't like the arrangement, and after much artistic agony and soul searching, you decided to Crush a previously constructed piece and crash those debris on top of the aforementioned unassuming "prior pile" and increase both the quality and quantity of debris? Well as we all now know, you have the skill to make a sows ear out of a silk purse, To which I say "Well Done" "Top Drawer", and any and all relevant expressions of amazement and heartfelt praise.
  8. Badder. So sorry to have missed your progress for the last few months. But I have now caught up to date. My usually pithy and quite urbane statements, hysterical (as I think them to be) are lacking, for this message. Regardless, though the improvements you have made and the quality of the decay/collapse is of a very high caliber. The revisions are a very evident improvement all round. Glad to to notice you and yours are weathering (yes I went there) the currant pandemic. As always I shall now eagerly await your next missive. Then I can once again look transfected by the buildings continued destruction / rot/decay as derived from your creative mind Stay Well
  9. Your progress adding items/walls/bits to the structure is a pleasure to watch. When I saw your corner gap, first thing I thought was Downspout! ( downpipe?) that would cover and disguise the willy FTINFBISS as it try's to take control from its minion er Master. Thought your solution, however, was far and away the best and more correct. Oh, and a brief point. You have help expand my lingua franca by your use of the term "biro" which I had assumed was some kind of stylus. I was unaware of the antecedents of "my" ball point pen. Thank you google for the clarification
  10. I Stand in Awh ---though my wife continues to insist its really mud--HA! I say, I know an awh when I see.....never mind. To the current improvements/additions/re-engineering they look to be coming along with great speed- not that having done them before would be any component of that (). sadly I am in a bit of a rush as I am required to attend a meeting soon ( No, not the head of the armed forces this time but lesser one with some strange little people---wish I looked good I green tights and curly toed shoes and cap but it is what it is). Again Great job of work to date. eagerly awaiting your next missive
  11. Badder Once again you have turned a sows ear into a silk poncho---or something like that. Hearty congratulations on the recovery from both the "wall fall" and the re-repair of same. Again your skill with the various materials you have to hand is inspiring for a novice such as my self. I hasten to add that I am just now filling out the 57th parchment sheet with my notes of your workings. On a local note: We had a bit of rain here and though the roof held-for the most part- I was able to whisk all the roles of parchment to a dry secure area just behind the hearth. Sad part is we couldn't have a fire for fear of compromising the parchments- alas. But for now we expect good weather, until it isn't. Regardless, on to the paeans of praise for your work to date- It really is inspiring to see the recovery progress and in my view the new work is much better and more cohesive than the former.
  12. I have been remiss in keeping a close eye on your shenanigans' and what do I find after coming back from safari to outer reaches of middle earth? Why you have made enormous strides in creating or shall we say once again recreating the wall or a wall -its all a bit hazy. That it seemed to offend your fine since abilities is easily understood by all of your loyal minions and followers of this project. I'm sure this latest recreation of a stone wall will show through with all the skill and daring of your past land mark parts (well except for this miscreant wall ). Regardless! Mortar board and trowel at the ready, I euphemistically, once again stand poised to dash in at a moments notice to add my humble troweling to keep the project on an even keel. So, as a unabashed admirer and accolade. I once again sing your praises ----------------- Oh, brother!-sigh
  13. Oh, What fun. Cutting and deconstructing the house . I'm just grateful to be a witness to this historical event. The deconstructing of a bombed out house. [isn't bomb out sorta synonymous with deconstruction?----hummm have to ask Badder next time I see his postings]
  14. Ahh yes when to use E or S - base or bass all very confusing to us Yanks. I have been on a several months long safari in the high country of the Dipsy Doodle. We didn't bag even one. But a jolly good time was had as the bearers would put elephant feathers on their conical hats and we could shoot them off -the feathers not the bearers. Had to wind down the hunt though, as the dashed ammunition was getting corroded from the buffalo's slobbering on it. Well, Good to see your sprit is willing and my viewing-ness is at the ready, So lead on MacDuff---so to speak.
