Thought I’d give this a try. Hope I set it up right. Any questions, just ask.

Well, did a couple of double clicks, don’t see how to delete, live with it, I guess. Also some of my resize’s didn’t work. but think you get the idea. Thanks…..........

Oh, just to let you know, it took me five days to carve and place the head into place.

Thanks all! You are too kind, especially you Christine. Trying ideas, surprising they work out. Like my guardian angel is helping me out. Just trying to enjoy my retirement and do some things I’ve thought about over the years. Could not have done this years ago. Takes time. I have more patience now. No more time limits….......
