Just a quick post to let you know I’m still alive – or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof.. Ariela hopes you enjoy the scenery. And we both hope you had a great Labor day for those that celebrate it.
I’ve felt a little bit strange the last few days – kind of a detached feeling; almost like I’m just an observer in my own life. It’s hard to describe, but I’ve had it before, and it generally goes away in a day or two. It’s pretty much gone today.
I’m also still dealing with all the “awdammits” one runs into when trying to make improvements or repairs in the house. You know about the “awdammits’ right? If not, it kinda goes like this… “Aw, dammit! Here’s something else I’ve gotta fix…”
Anyway, while taking out all the old ceramic tiles in the bathroom (that were poorly installed and grouted by the previous resident), I discovered they’d used a combination of plaster and plywood to slightly raise the level of the floor to match the flange that the toilet mounts to. Several spots were rotted and had to be replaced – so that’s pretty much what I’ve been dealing with today.
Hopefully I can install the new flooring and tile Tuesday, and get the toilet back in operation so we don’t have to run to the basement when nature calls at 3:00 in the morning…
Anyway – now that I’ve given you waaaay too much info – I’m still working on the next T.N.A. page in between all this. Mostly writing and re-writing some stuff in preparation for Chapter 7. I am also planning a series of videos where I’ll take you through my entire workflow in creating a page in the story. It will include creating the individual panels in Poser/DS/Vue and assembling everything in Photoshop for the completed 5-panel page. Stay tuned.
As always, thanks for stopping by, and for any comments you wish to leave. I appreciate them all!

Oh my, look at her lovely backside. Guess retirement is still working, difference is you don't clock in and out. Hope the best on issues as always Rod, your gal is looking marvelous as Billy Crystal used to say in Fernando's corner on Saturday Night Live.
I certainly can relate to your fix-it encounters! My house was built in '74 and has a ton of them. I have become a master at being able to stare right at a problem and not even see it! LOL! Unfortunately, my wife still has her vision. Another LOL almost to crying. Beautiful view hear and looking out the window is nice too!
Lol...no one can accuse Ariela of being 'under-nourished', can they!? She's VERY healthy! Great view indeed, Rod!
I hope you quit having 'awdammit' moments with the house. Seems to me my Dad had to do something similar when he remodeled our bathroom with the floor and toilet. It's easy to feel dissociated these days. Everything is just too surreal or unreal. Hugs hon
Looking out the window is my favorite view......not the lady's 'butt cheeks'.......'lol'!!! Nice job Rod!! I hope that you'll soon be able to move out of that crazy house of yours, Rod.......your problems never seem to end! Best of luck to you and Jo, in finding a nice new house to move to!!!
in addition to the AwDammints, there are the infamous 20 minute jobs. The quick ones that are safe to start after the hardware store closes, and involve turning off water or power for "just a minute" 20 minute jobs are generally recognizable in the 4th or 5th our after the services have been turned off.
She's a cute little thing...but I do prefer the view out the window, being a gal T&A don't interest me :) Though it's a lovely render.
I keep suggesting to you to sell that albatross and find a nice apartment where all repairs are done by management...at our age, we deserve the "Life of Riley."
I'm sorry you've had to do so much, and I fully believe how it's dragged you into fatigue and numbness. I know how everytime you finish something, something else calls out to be done, you can't believe how much there is between one door and the next, like where did it all come from. Further, I don't know where you learned the gazillion things you know---from computers to fixing a toilet---but having to put that knowledge to work every minute is a big burden, and I hope the end is in sight (and you can sell the house). It's hard to explain, isn't it, that when you finish a multi-day project (fixing the bathroom), you feel like you crawled out from a cave, like "how do I talk to anyone now?" Emerging out of hades...I wish you the best with it, Rod. (I still remember the video of you banging your ceiling, and getting pelted by falling plaster. You didn't flinch, but I was hiding under the freakin' desk! I would've done anything to see a body fall out, or a live poker game---in the ceiling ("hey, we're playin' in here!")
Another standout pinup, with a turned posture, as she turns to us with a vixen smile. And as always, pro work with the outfit, and the light and skin tone, and the choice of aqua blue for her outfit. (Matched by dark blue shoes. I'm tellin' ya, you got a design sense that won't quit.) The office-y feel of the room is balanced by that rich autumn shot of a field, like we're waiting for her to take us outside. I also love the splashing light on the desktop. She has a 40's model look, in her gaze and those daring eyes. Great to see you post whenever you can. Your artistry hasn't lost a beat, Rod.
