Let the Games Begin!

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the first brush stroke of the painting challenge!



And in other news, like a flash of lightning Ray correctly identified that my inspiration for the names in my town is the great Dylan song 'Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts' from Blood on the Tracks. Well done Ray! He has modestly chosen to have a building named 'Bullock & Star Hardware Store', after Seth Bullock's store in Deadwood, rather than naming something after himself. And there was me expecting something like 'Colonel Ray's Sandbag Supplies'...

Best wishes to everyone in the Challenge! And to Curt, good luck with all the work ahead of you.

  1. Well, I presume that the store will also sell shaving brushes which in that era were made from the hair of.......badgers!

    Good luck with the Challenge Dux!

  4. Good luck again Dux, I thought the name was quite apt, I've just been watching Deadwood (TV series) again, wish they'd not cancelled it!

  5. Good luck in the challenge, I did think it was something Dylan but did not follow it up.

    Who would have thought Badgers listening to Dylan
