Dragon rider


Here’s another view of the dragon from yesterday’s post.  Only this time, LRN4’s taming it.  Observe the crazed look in the eye.  Ride ’em, dragongirl!  Great Art courtesy of the exclusive iPhone-cam, taken at Dorney Park, and part of my famous Machinery and Statue series.

Very quiet day.  LRN4 is starting to have some symptoms that indicate engraftment is starting to take place.  It’s a pretty uncomfortable situation for her, but it’s fantastic news anyway.  We’re excited.  The discomfort won’t last forever, but the healing will.

It’s LRN4’s birthday eve!  Tomorrow is going to be a great day.

I’ve been thinking the last couple of days about making one of these.  I don’t really need it and that kit is outrageously expensive.  In the original Make magazine article on the plane, they said it could be done for about a hundred dollars.  So I would buy the parts myself wherever I could find them for a good price.  I don’t need it, though.  And I’m not sure I could find anyplace around here to fly it.  The attraction is that it’s simple and cheap to repair when I crash it.  And it’s a machine.

But it might be more fun to make a robot.  Or maybe to get a couple of old bicycles, fix them up nicely, and use them to ride around the hospital campus while we’re here in the hospital.  But I think I’d probably enjoy the airplane or the robot more.  There’s no place for bicycles in our garage.  What do you think, Loyal Readers?

Struggling with work.  Can’t get deep into anything.  I keep hoping that’ll happen when we get out of the hospital.  Don’t know, though.  I need to decide what I really want to do and start doing it.  Sigh.

And that’s it for today.  I’ll leave my Loyal Readers with this shocking food violence news: yogurt spill!

See you tomorrow.

    I didn’t want to get too specific.
