    blunderbuss2

    Seems like I can poste again without having to search for replies. Also had problems figuring out how to use pc updates etc.. Figure out how to use things & they change things to confuse us (me). I was happy with XP & 7 ! Well I've worked on accoutrements for the gun. Made both handspikes (wooden poles that mount on the "trail" for pointing the gun), new ramrods with sponges for the bore, water bucket for sponging out the bore between shots (proud of how that came out) and a pyramid of cannon balls (correct size). The only other miniature Civil War cannon I've ever seen this perfect in every detail, was made by a foundry pattern maker in his spare time. This will end up in the St. Maarten museum when I kick the (water) bucket. I saw a well made one that was about 85% of this detail sold on line for $1,200. Happy camper this !
    I'm back CW fans to harass you when I'm not harassing the natives here ! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !

      Oh boy! we are in trouble now! LOL. I had to get another comp also recently and my brother Steve is a self taught comp wizard, so he told me to stick with win 7 as long as possible.

      Iggy, I got a 7 yr. old Chinese kid to straighten things out. Why won't they leave, well enough, alone ? They should design them so that they have an "after life" use, like a planter. They don't last long as targets.

      Daddy & Hotair, you two's comments mean a lot ! Roy, I quit trying to guess what's going to kill me first ! LOL !! Just when I accepted the doc's rulings, that I am on the "short list", I started getting better. Now, I'm guessing again. I know you're anxious, but don't get an ulcer ! Besides, I think I misspelled your name in my Will. LOL !!

      I appreciate everybody's appreciation of my current endeavour. Lost most of what I had due to heart attack & then Irma. Glad I put some of my best stuff in the museum. Irma knocked St. Maarten/St. Martin into the 4th world, but we are slowly rebuilding. C'est l'vive !
