Here’s this weeks Newsletter

For several weeks I have been working at catching up with all my backorders and this week I did it. That was the most work I’ve done in a long time. Working while being sick made it harder. I just got swamped. 30 masks and they all had hair work. It was a good thing for business- thank you.

I also made a few pairs of Spock ears without the shadow box this week for collectors.

There was no time to work on anything personal, really. I picked at my glider that  I built and finalized it for its first flights next week. I’m looking forward to some sailing, slot car racing, and flying also.

The Samba 2 meter wingspan is all hand built in balsa. She has an all up weight of 14.5 oz. Amazingly light.

Thanks to Dave at Smith Brothers for once again helping me get the right equipment and covering material for this build. I could not have done it without his help.

Next up some experimentation making Ape prosthetics using poly foam and if successful these will be offered. I may start that Tolosian from Star Trek next week as a new mask to add to our selection of masks that continues to grow.

 Today I’m going to the Smith Brothers Hobby Center in Reseda to pick up a F-16 Fighter Jet I plan to fly tomorrow and get some R&R at my field here in Ventura. One of my favorite things to do.

Mary has been busy this week being very creative; weaving a new wall hanging and painting. I was so glad to see her doing these wonderful things since she got over the same “whatever it is we got”. I’m just a little behind her.

You can see what she’s creating at https://marycacciapaglia.wpcomstaging.com/2022/04/30/healing/

Thanks for all the emails and support as always. I’ll get back to your emails this weekend. I can never thank you enough for your patronage at Patreon  and Buy Me Coffee.

Happy Birthday to 2 of my favorite people, Steve Dix, who I get to see on our  monthly SNG chats and Emily Griffin, Mary’s daughter. 

Love you all a whole bunch!

Steve and Mary
