Lord bless the UPS guy!
Ok. Maybe that was just a tad in poor taste, but I was so happy that my clock and new plans arrived. I was not happy that I failed to read the part about, “battery NOT included”. I started to town to get one since it is an odd sized type N battery. I stopped for gas though, and after getting over the sticker shock of the thirty cent increase in gas since I filled up my wife’s Jeep yesterday, I made the decision that the clock doesn’t actually have to work until I need to go to town for something else. I don’t see a need in making a special trip for it at this time.
So then I was able to add the front gable pieces.
And the fencing around the base of the steeple.
And except for some minor sanding here and there and cleaning up a few areas, the church is done.
Then I took it outside, trying to beat the bad weather that is moving in (believe me, it’s coming fast, my aching back is telling me so), I took some better photos. Why do I go outside, you ask? I go outside because my crappy camera take a little bit better photos out there.
I will post the better photos in the projects section soon. Thank you all for your kind comments throughout the construction of this project.
