For Fun :D

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Her Most Noble Lady Joyce the Sublunary of Bampton Underhoop
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Here’s another one that came up for me (I like the sheepish bit.):

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Marchioness Joyce the Sheepish of Fritterton on the Marshes
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

And, for my husband:

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
His Highness Rick the Ingenious of Fiddlers Green
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

It’s fun how appropriate this aristocratic title is for Rick, since he is indeed, ingenious. Rick can fix almost anything with almost anything. His repertoire is much broader than duct tape, too. Also, he greatly enjoys fiddling, especially as in Celtic-type music. I suppose you could say he’s ingenious in his musical ability as well, since Rick can pick up almost any instrument, figure out how to play a scale on it, and then proceed to play that instrument passably-well, by ear.

Grampa Taron Shows His Grandson a Thing or Two About Model Shipbuilding

Saturday, April 7th, 2007

Last summer Grampa Taron introduced Seth to the wonders of model shipbuilding. Grampa is a pro, not only at building the delicate models, but also at refurbishing real boats. He has rebuilt tugboats, canoes, catamarans, dinghies, and rowboats (that I have heard about), and built a miniature tugboat from beginning to end.

Grampa was excited to find that his 10-year old grandson was interested in how to do that model shipbuilding. Maybe this summer Grampa will give Seth some more lessons.

That’s Daddy peeking in.

This is just the beginning of the model, but Seth was excited he had a hand in it.

Thanks to Gramma Taron for the fun pictures. 😀 We’ll have to take a picture of the finished model when we come to visit, so I can post that, too.
