Description


Aileena and I wanted to pass along some updates! August was an insanely busy month - but it looks like it was just getting me prepared for September.. WHY did I retire?? LOL First on the list, though.... I know some of the old-timers here know Faemike55 (Mike Jessett). He was one of the first friends I made here at 'Rosity, and we still chat on the phone a couple times a month. We talked a couple days ago, and he had some disturbing news. During a visit to his doctor, some scans of his chest / lungs was done, and they diagnosed him with some "abnormal growths" on his lungs. The full diagnosis isn't in, but the doctors seemed to think it was the nasty "C" word (I.E. cancer). Mike's already survived abdominal cancer, so hopefully he can beat this as well. He's a couple years younger than me, but he's smoked most of his adult life. Let's all send a prayer, and some good wishes his way. On a much lighter note, it looks like things here are showing signs of turning in a much more positive direction. I got to snooping around the massive Social Security website(s), and discovered that a recipient's spouse is entitled to a SS "Spousal Benefit" after age 65, and it amounts to approximately 50% of the primary recipient's benefit. In other words, if you get $2000 per month in benefits, your spouse will receive $1000 / month. Whether she / he worked or not. We applied, and qualified. That definitely helps! Keep this in mind (those in the USA), if you get SS - and it doesn't matter if your spouse worked or not. I am now in the process of getting the images put together for the next page (41) in the TNA story! It's waaaay past time to get this rolling again! Look for page 41 in the next week or so. And much more often after that! Aileena is a collection of my own morphs applied to Vicky 4, and the BG photo is one of mine. Rendered in Poser 12, composited in Photoshop. Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend this Labor Day! Stay safe, stay healthy, and stay creative! Rod out! Rod's Lair Official Girls From T.N.A.

Mike has always been such a kind and generous supporter of everyone he's followed, and his art has been so wonderfully creative---and so "him". He's used the same tools as his cohorts, but what he's done with them is so creative, so delightful and sometimes so off-the-wall---in the best sense of the word!---and just downright brilliant. I've missed his presence and great kindness...Mike, you'll be in my meditations every day, may you conquer everything that comes your way: the cosmos owes you, dammit, and I'll shake it by the collar and be sure that it delivers. (You've always been so kind to my work, as well...even my impossible hard-to-follow tales...I've always been so grateful.) Get well soon. I add my wishes to everyone who's always cared about you. You deserve them all.

Lovely piece Rod! I love the old rusticated stone walls, and that great blouse. It looks like she stepped into the 12th Century (well, except for the blouse...unless they had a Prada in medieval france!) Fine job as always, Rod. I'm so happy about the S.Sec extra---that's a sweet piece of news, and I wish all the best to you and Jo; and thanks for letting everyone know about Mike. He deserves the very best. You've always kept us abreast of Mike, and I've appreciated it greatly.

She's beautiful and she has a look of surprise in her face as if you had interrupted her at some important chat or whatever she had done right before.

Hoping the best for Faemike55. Don't know him personally but the "C" word has hurt my family. Finance wise glad to hear you got some good news. Your ladies always make for great art to view here. Very nice composition between figure and background.

I'll ramp up a few extra prayers and positive vibes and send them Mike's way! He has been such a great support to many artists here for such a long time! We wish him a speedy recovery so that he can continue having a big time presence here! Glad to hear you found another source of revenue for all the activities you are looking at in the future! A few extra pennies never hurts! LOL! Many fine kudos on your beautiful lady here and also, big time accolades as well!
