Thanks djuby, good to be back
I was showing my wife the latest HM3s I had done, she said I needed to make sure I back them all up, and some, although not all are on Photobucket and the various CDC and Pop Quiz, but though I’d make sure to put them here too in case anything happened. I’m almost done posting the CDC and Pop Quiz then plan to add the ones I’ve done for fun or the real early contest.January 6, 2016 at 4:15 pm #132893

2016 haiga Monkey
For the last several years I have participated in a Nengajo -Japanese New Year haiku postcard exchange with some haiku friends.
This year is “Year Of The Monkey”
to be specifit it’s the Fire Monkey
which starts Feb 8 this year.
so here is my haiku and the haiga (haiku accompanying art, which does NOT have to relate nessasarily to the actual haiku, many say it definately shouldn’t but add to the verse)
I tried to do it as an old sumi-e (brush and ink) painting
the chop (name stamp) stands for my haigo (haiku penname) which is “kawazu” (the old literary word for “frog”, which a famous haiku was written about by Matsuo Basho “the grandfather of haiku”)

Akemashite Omedetou Gozaimasu **
(* this stands for 3 Japanese new year traditions)
(** Happy New Year)
PS Haiku do NOT have to be 5/7/5 syllables nowadays, once they got into translations better they realize Japanese is said faster then English and 5/7/5 English is longer and has more info in it than 5/7/5 Japanese

Wow, it’s been since Jan since I’ve posted here,
I have been entering contest and Pop Quizs from time to time
In July I had some major health problems. I was forgetting a lot of things, and couldn’t write and trouble walking. I had went to a hospital for a week, then went back to ER, they didn’t do much at all, so wen to a diff ER, then was in that hospital for a week. It was there that we thought I might have had a stroke. They did MOST of a MRI, the relaxer they gave me didn’t work well with me, I got paranoid and hallucinated, and couldn’t do all of the MRI, but we did do enough to see it wasn’t a stroke. Turned out it was an enzyme imbalance. The last day I couldn’t get out of the tube and had to get a male tech to lift me out of the tub, which was so low my knees would hold me from that position. Several time I fell and couldn’t get up. Bre needed to use her Life Alert to get help, so I had some cute firemen manhandling me.
But I finally got some better, my memory came back mostly, and some of my strength
Recently I was going to kneel down for a family picture, and ackwardly remembered I couldn’t kneel anymore.
Right now I have had blood in my urine, but no pain. It’s not stone, so will have to let them have a look to see what it is. oh joy.
Still going to dialysis T, Th, Sat. I have lost 20 pounds since last month. a bit over a hundred pounds since I started dialysis.
So that is the medical update for me, hope I wasn’t too open. Now on to the fun stuff … my HM3 creations …. (next post)August 31, 2016 at 7:44 pm #137825

Thnks to you too. I try my best to stay positive
my favorite saying is “I’m in great shape, for the shape I’m in” 🙂

CDC #153 BUILDINGS – January 23, 2016
You may have heard of my Satyr bard Philander a while back, this is his Bardic College. It’s an octagon with a towers and a gold dome.
There is even a tiny Philander satyr on the closest bank,, along with a fox and several birds in and around the tree
That was a pretty wild advernture. It was my birthday spotlight game in 2011.
One of the odd things about the college. it is of alien origin, and was on an asteroid, in a Spelljammer adventure, we were fighting some villains who had discovered a song to bring the powerful alien Gonn who were musical spheres of great power and intelligence. Philander was able to play a song of warning to the Gonn about the villains intent to control and use them for destruction. The villains were vanquished by our party and Philander ended up communicating with the Gonn in song and ended up with the now unused college as a thank you from the Gonn complete with the asteroid being carefully plunked down on our planet.
There was a catastrophic event (all three DMs desided to fuse their game worlds together and the three planets breached a dimensional rift and collided) so when Philanders Bardic College set down, his was the only remaining one, the only seat of music training. Many people flocked to his college and the surrounding lands.September 1, 2016 at 6:20 pm #137867
CDC #154 ON TV – January 25, 2016
I admit I did the room and all befor I had a clue about the tv program. but I eneded up with all these nature elements showing our viewer was into animals and nature with his zebra stripe sofa, the companionable cat, landscape painting, leopard print drapes, the plant, the horse statue, I < 3 Tiger mug with perpetual stain under it
(although he is a bit cruel to the poor goldfish in the too small bowl) so I went with a winged hero … showing lots of skin of course.I actually knew a guy named Byrd tooSeptember 1, 2016 at 6:23 pm #137869
