    My son grew up shooting & riding & climbing & doing what boys are supposed to do in the great wide open. He was a Lego builder from early on and has moved into the high priced world of them over complicated and 1000s of pieces Lego Technic sets and beyond. He knows how to build a safe cooking fire in adverse conditions. One of the things that evolved out of this is his skill with a Apple iPhone 11 and well, heck, I went out into the boonies a couple of days ago to stand critter watch while he practiced his craft. He can outshoot me, and walk me off my pegs any day of the week. I never had a thing for the Lego game. Check this out:

    This is a picture of the lovely woman Diana Rigg was that I pulled off the interweb at the time of her passing as I was always a huge fan and include it here if the rest of this post left you with dead eyes and wondering what is the point.

    Looking at this, I really sucked at Legos back in the day, always building a house which always managed to look the same over and over. RIP Emma Peel, man I had a boyhood crush on her. 57DAC484-FEDB-40AB-A4B6-B7C934D4A3B2.jpeg 201862D6-F6CB-47D4-9D6E-755415DABF20.jpeg

    The shallow depth of field makes these shots great. Way nicer than a phone ought to do..
    All the Best,

    If you remember the old Revell Goodyear Blimp model, I had changed the message paper and had a knot fail and well.. gravity sucks.
    I eventually used the motor and gears and created a rotating radar dish on top of a control tower with the batteries in the base with wiring inside the shaft to go along with my Battlestar Galactica "Viper" all assembled from Legos.
