Rebecca Bresler the Education Coordinator for the Lemay held a scouting merit badge workshop this last week end for Model Building and Design and asked that I come to sign blue cards. It has been a while since I'd been involved in any workshops so I had to renew my youth training and merit badge counselor qualifications. Easily done with expedited help from Paul Monahan from Troop 420 Bothell. Thanks Paul .
The workshop was terrific. Rebecca is a petite young woman but commands a presence that the scouts respect, and as usual, the scouts had a wonderful time and produced some really terrific models with her leadership. Always a joy for me to participate.
I found this interesting video on Youtube regarding making gaskets. You need a special printer and software, a few hundred dollar investment. But I thought it would be a great consideration in the future for more model building as well as gasket making. And I enjoyed the video post from 'The Good of the Land' channel.
I'm posting it here to share but also to test a Youtube link in my blog as my 2019 resolution is to write in here again. It has been a few years since I finished my Studebaker and I started on a 68 Volvo P1800s but in the last few years, I lost someone I loved deeply to cancer and my Studebaker BFF also passed away, God Bless Geoff and Ray. I've had to help a few family members who got ill, one of my dogs is grave and I'm going to be moving soon, and everything in between, but I find that the constant, joyful peace in my life is working on my cars, my time with my family and my newly refreshed faith in God.
So, here I am. Love to all, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, and Happy New Year
