This week was a mess. I came down with a horrible head cold, which still lingers as a sinus infection. The storms and unusually cold temperatures for this part of the country disrupted everyone's work and school schedules. Then for the weekend, my daughter and wife came down with the flu.

I painted them with various camo schemes, none of which showed up all that well in the photos. What am I going to use them for? Probably some sort of volunteer defense force of some distant human colony. Who are their opponents? Stay tuned...
