Rick, I found you an additional hobby

I think these are very cool, but my fingers would never be able to do this

Uh, huh. Too small for these old eyes, I'm afraid. I have to have magnifiers to do fine work, as it is.

I have actually seen more amazing......there is some lunatic(?), that is painting grains of rice.

Well, guess there's always someone with way too much time of their hands. (smile)

I didn't have the link.

Just thinking about the hours involved looking through high magnification makes me hurt.

Waaaaaayyyyy too much time on their hands!
Even with my reading glasses I can't see that.
Tally HO!

Oh, PJ, that just sets my teeth on edge to think about it. Those pit carvings were pretty cool, tho!

Rick, do you have pictures of your handiwork we could see?

Pics will be a few weeks in coming. Too many pieces not quite finished, right now. Then I will have to find somewhere free to put them, as I don't have a personal web site. So.....gotta have patience. Nothing earth shattering, there, anyhow.

I don't got patience. I'm a hoodlum fairy.
