A Quick Update, and an Upcoming Anniversary

I'm sorry that I haven't posted anything this month.  As we all know, Real Life™ has a way of occasionally interfering with hobbies, and that has sort of been the case this month.  Between the usual inconveniences of life like failing appliances, and the attempt to improve my health by being more active, I'm just not spending as much time blogging or painting as I have been.  Now, this doesn't mean I'm not doing anything, as the picture below should demonstrate.

Yes, the masts are finally in my North Carolina, and it's only taken from September of 2014 to get here, so 3 years and 5 months.  Given that the original was started in 1818, launched in 1820 and commissioned in 1824, I think I'm comfortably ahead of schedule!

My first post on this blog was March 8, 2017 so the one year anniversary is coming up soon.  There will be an anniversary post, looking at the usual stuff: How many posts, how many visitors, and etc.  For the five people who follow this blog, thank you and there will be more frequent postings in the future (I promise!).
