Finally! Someone else who's willing to show his artwork! This is fantastic! You must have been practicing years to perfect your style.

Really, this is too funny. Count on Wayne!

Blockhead, indeed! Good one, Bob!

Notice, btw, there are no people in my sketches, stick or otherwise!

Here is part 2 of the 2-page spread I started earlier:

Sorry about the color. It would be better in daylight.

We all cope differently w/ this isolation bit. Making art is one way. Even (or especially) stick men!

I build models. Carol plays computer games and reads.
Been working on 1/25th size versions of the coach mirrors for a project. Carved the supports out of plastic and cast resin copies in silicone rubber molds. Fabricated the housings out of plastic strip and sheet. Keeps the brain functioning figuring out how to make this stuff.

During this sequestration, while Sue does craft work, I go visit the YouTube channel on TV. There are some really interesting videos there. For example, how about riding shotgun in the cab of a train. These are mainly British journeys like Waterloo to Weymouth, Swanage to Wareham, Newcastle to Edinburgh, narrow gauge Welsh Heritage line in Snowdonia etc. Once you come across one of these, YT will recommend a whole bunch more. There is no narrative, just the sound of the track and the occasional signal alerts and whistles. Sometimes you will get station name IDs and posted speed limits.
Another set of videos we find interesting, are multi camera cockput films of take offs and landings of big passenger planes. I was surprised at how many female pilots there are - a recent film showed two piloting a massive Ethiad A380 out of Paris CDG.

James May and Richard Hammond of the DriveTribe, have some really interesting films.

James has a fixation on toys of his childhood and his fantasies of building full size Airfix kits. Well, he did just that. With the help of a small class of students and a willing supplier, they constructed a full size Airfix Spitfire fighter. It is now in a museum. Another childhood fantasy was to build and fly a glider across the English Channel. After all the work in designing and building it and organising a helicopter to lift it to the calculated launch altitude, they were told France would not let it into their airspace. So they took it across to Devon and flew it across to the island of Lundy, a similar distance. It actually landed near a grass airstrip.

Richard has a series of films called 'Connections'. Here, he takes a massive construction project such as a cable stay bridge or the giant hotel on the coast at Dubai and shows how engineering principles found in simple day to day life are applied to these projects.

Then there are the travel/food videos. We found the two series by Rick Stein, a British chef, covering his travels around the Mediterranean and India looking at both food and the local culture fascinating.

Back to the here and now, our stay here in Foley, ends on April 14 when we head back home. Hopefully, the roads will still be open. I topped off our tank so we won't have to look for fuel ( 50 gal at 5 gal a time!). We had hoped to pop back by car to 5 Flags to visit with Chuck and Sarah and friends there. But we now learn that Florida has closed its borders to non-essential traffic.

Hey Ho, we do live in interesting times.

Stay safe y'all

Social isolation is an everyday thing in Dateland. But I would encourage y’all to find outdoor activities if the weather permits. Sunshine kills viruses. You only need to be 13’ from others.

Hair color?
No clue.
Ah, thanks. I'll get a long stick with a magic marker on the end. Slip the stick through my belt and down to the drawing paper. Then I'll just turn around and around.

Oh, wait! That would not be small.

I watch food videos like Cowboy Kent Rollins.

Sometimes I talk to all my friends that live in the computer, and sometimes they talk back.

Looking like our travels will be limited, even the lake hosting on hold, we decided to put in a garden. So yesterday we hauled rich dirt from the hay compost pile we push up periodically and attached the tiller to the tractor and by dark we had a good rich garden area. Will wait till after Easter to plant, been fooled by the early spring like days before! Today we readied the ground for a couple peach trees the neighbor gave us. Now rain!

Ah, y'all lead rich & varied lives! From model-making to art to talking to your imaginary friends ....

Isolation is not such a burden to those already accustomed to living in restricted space. Getting outdoors is easy too, & neighbors still chat.

One more quick art project to show you, & then I'll go back to murking & await your stick figures & pics of models & such. Click image for larger version

Nice drawings Sue! I used to draw constantly back in school with my friend John. We drew comic books and exchanged them, hundreds of 4 page issues. We were also into the golden age of radio shows....making our own shows on cassette tape as if we were on live radio, including call letters like KQPB and another one KWLL or something like that. Eventually we combined the two with a cast of original characters in old west comedies. I don't have access to anything to share here, but it's a true story.
Tim, I've always heard you plant potatoes on Good Friday. At least in the Midwest.

Its about time! Theoretically that should drop the price of fuel, but somehow I doubt it. Great timing for you though, Huh?
