A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Aldus the Wizard

As you can see, not too much progress in the Library this week.  A scattering of papers, nick-naks and yet more books have been added ontop of the shelves.

These of course are strategically placed to cover the places where the trim around the top of the shelves was slightly mishapen and the cornice very badly joined.

Seated in the wooden chair I 'borrowed' from the Witch Shop is Aldus the wizard who's fallen asleep while reading.  He's not quite finished yet, most notably he needs hair and a book to have been reading.

  Beside Aldus you can see part of the finished fire box.  I seem to have overlooked taking a good photo of this so will reveal it properly next week.

At the same time as I made Aldus, I started work on another wizard for the Library, but like Chrysta in the Crystal Garden I came to the conclusion that he wasn't going to be able to squash in so again he'll be set aside for a later room in the Tower of Magic.  Hopefully by next week I'll be able to reveal the finished Library and Crystal Garden (for which I'm currently making an extra vine to grow up the wall and accross the ceiling at the front).
