Everyone who knows me, knows I like mermaids. I am deeply disappointed with this latest puzzle I assembled. The die cuts weren’t completely cut through the wood. The plywood is very cheap and flimsy. Normally, plywood would be a decent, lightweight material to maintain strength and integrity.

Christmas 2018 Ornaments

My girlfriend suggested a new gallery which I call my Christmas 2018 Ornaments. They represent a few of my latest acquisitions to my ornament collection.

Okay, there are a couple older ones but they mean a lot to me. Check them out.

So you see that I collect Star Trek® and Star Wars® ships for my tree. I have many, many more as I have been collecting them since the 80’s. As you can tell, I like my mermaids as well.

Feel free t send me a comment or two. I will respond in a timely manner. Feel free to check out my books available on Amazon and other ebook retailers.

Thanks for taking a look.

I can’t offer you a drink but I can say this. Enjoy!
