Questions, there should be no questions,

If a train leaves Baltimore at 5:16 PM, EST traveling West and another train leaves Dallas at 7:37 PM, CST traveling North , what time will the Greyhound Bus arrive in Oklahoma City?:rolleyes:

Second question...which one are you going to keep and which one do I get? :lol:

Exquisite piece Patch...perfect color combinations and shading...looking forward to seeing the "up-sized" version!

Hey Dave your riddle got me all tied up with question marks. First off Oklahoma some years ago stopped Greyhound from going into their state. Reason, they said the bus always picked up more passengers than they dropped off so they figured in a few years there would be no one left to do the work. It must have worked cause every time I go through there I always see people, but as I think about that I really never see anyone working  so there you go...IMG_9054.JPG.e6d26f0dcebb512d0f2ad8e1be3e6842.JPG

 

Got a  little more done today. Being Sat. I usually don't exert myself on these holidays, Sat. and Sun. have always been holidays to me.. I remember when I was a kid mom use to always tell me to go out in the street and play today. I still wonder what her intentions was back then, but hey, dodgeing cars was kind of a fun game back then cause they weren't able to go as fast as they do now...

The piece of paper I started with is an 8x10. Wife has rapid resizer for her stained glass so I resized it to 10x14 not counting the dark mahogany outside border. The large one is 14x17. Diagonal its 22"  It takes the home printer 6 pieces of paper I have to put together  and if I tape them like they are susposed to go okay I have something to glue to the wood.

   And don't anybody ever forget to first cover the wood with clear packing tape then the spray goes on that.... This helps the blades last longer, the tape stickum........I mean to say.....

Nice pieces. Looking forward to seeing the larger sister completed. Did you create this yourself or is it a purchased pattern?
