Oy! Such challenges....

I find that going away, even for a short while makes for lots of catching up to do! I spent the week convincing my 88 y/o mother to downsize her living arrangements and taking my son to visit Northwestern University.

Now I find I have several photo challenges! One from Casey and the other from Marsha so I'd better get on it. Because there were two, I counted 4 and then 4 more for the second challenge.

Ok..first I have a rather bad photo of a telescope I made a while back out of brass tubes, jewelry findings and a knurled nut. Somewhere there is a better picture of it. I needed something for my Astronomer's table. It is a little over 2 inches long and stand about 3/4 inch high. If I locate the better picture, I'll post it later.

Four folders down, I found only contained one picture....that of my wonderful son when he was inducted into the National Honor Society last Fall. They all received a yellow rose from an upperclassman (school colors are black and gold). We took this picture quickly right before we left the auditorium since he isn't much for posing.
I know I'm supposed to pass this along to four more friends. Seems it's been around and around for awhile. I'll have to look for someone I know who hasn't yet been so "challenged". :-)

Hi Susan. Love your telescope. I'm always amzed how people put such ;ittle bit together.
I'm always frightened of making these type of things because i dont have a clue how to, but i've been brave and ordered some steampunk.
And what a handsome beautiful son you have too!
