We started with this piece of proto-hull that I brought with me from Oakland.
 Molly, Renate and Johne were all smiles at our first meeting.
 Everyone jumped right in with design suggestions.
 I would do a little work on my own each week between collaborative meetings.

 Up on the hill between Smith Valley & Carson Valley I spotted Nifty Thrifty, so I careened on in. Spent a half hour getting to know Tony the proprietor. He talked me into trying out a piece of marble as the base for the USS Silver Stallion. Tried to give it to me for free but I gave him eight bucks. Everyone liked the marble base.

 I had to do all the tedious work.
 Molly, Fred, Renate, Cyndy and Johne hard at work.
 Molly and Renate like what they see.
