That is beautiful Larry. Sorry to hear about your son.

Liberty has never come from Government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it.

Beautiful work, and worth of your son. Tell us about it.

I recall that you mentioned the loss of your son, Larry. It seems to me that it was in sympathy with another member's loss.
I am pleased that you've stayed in touch and I think that's true of all of us.

Loss is never an easy thing to deal with. But your wreath is beautiful. I hope you can share how you did it.

thanks for the kind comments. This was my second attempt, the first try took almost three weeks and turned out terrible, I chucked it, disappointed and frustrated, thought about quitting. Then, I just put my nose to the grindstone, stopped thinking to much, and went at it. I didn't count, but There are over 300 feathers. To save time and energy, I cut them out with a plasma, put them in the forge and hit each one around 100 times to get the texture, ( wish I could have used the power hammer) in the center I ended up putting a stainless plate and an LED that gives a "halo" effect. this version took 10 days. It was a lot harder emotionally, to turn it in than I ever thought it would be. Now I have to much time on my think
