When it dries properly

I thought I might do some writing today but my wife didn't teach as she usually does so I didn't. I finished forming the new upper section of the airship and cut out a roof. I glued the upper section to the deck and put a rear gunner's position in it. Though when I checked it while it was drying the card started to warp. Hope it straightens out when it dries properly.

As you can see from the photograph on the right.

Today's joke is:

I have COD. It's like OCD, but I also have dyslexia!

No doors

The top half of the airship had no doors, I noticed too late. So I am making a new top half with doors. Now from the photo I will be taking of it you probably wouldn't notice, but I am going to be using the airship for two of my covers, The Tawa and Attack on Thera. I'd rather do it properly. I have cut the strip out and two of the windows.

Today's joke is:

At what age is it appropriate for me to tell my dog she is adopted?

Nicks at the top

So it seems as though I had both Saturday and Sunday off! Today I worked on my airship model. Now if I can get my phone to connect to my PC then I can put a picture on my blog. I cut out the windows and put nicks at the top so that I can eventually glue a roof to it. It looks much better and I'm glad I spent longer on it today before my wife took me to Starbucks.

Today's joke is:

I may not always be right, but I am never wrong!

Slots in the deck

I wasn't really planning to do any of my airship model today, but after watching Criminal Minds and Agents of Shield my PC started putting the service pack together and I was a bit stumped until it had finished. So I went upstairs and worked on the above deck section of the airship. I have left tabs on the bottom and put slots in the deck and slotted it together for now. I have also measured out where the windows are going to be but I will have to do that tomorrow.

Today's joke is:

Some people hear voices, some see invisible people, others have no imagination whatsoever!

Now Defunct

Today I spent most of the day upgrading the software on my PC and laptop at my daughter's house. Two of my hard drives kept failing and my son-in-law gave me the one from the PC he is going to give me later on in the year. So, for now at least, I have a working PC at home that's safer to use than when it had the recently defunct Windows XP on it.

Today's funny is:

I used to be a funky - now I'm just defunct!

Foam Ribs

I didn't do much to my airship today. I formed half of the hull with a piece of paper and am going to use that as a template for the card one. I think I may also put tabs on the top instead of just trying to glue it to the foam ribs.

Foam ribs, that sounds like genetically modified pork ribs for people to eat who don't have any teeth!

Consigned to the green room.

Today I consigned myself to the green room in the garden. I put the patio table and chair in it and started on the next phase of my airship. I also asked the neighbour two doors down if he had any polystyrene foam, which he did. I then cut out the foam pieces using a craft knife and then glued and pinned them onto the card deck. I did mess a few up and had to do them again, the craft knife could have been sharper. Tonight I peeled off the scotch tape and took the pins out and it looks to be OK.

Now I have used two Americanisms there, Scotch tape instead of Sellotape and craft knife instead of Stanley knife, so now you know.

Tomorrow I will try to do a little more before I go out to work.

Today's funny thing is:

When you're dead, you don't know you're dead. It is difficult only for the others - it is the same when you are stupid.
