Here is an example of some of the basic solid models we worked on. The next step in this exercise is to render the materials to cover the surface of the model. I can't wait to show the kids how to take their concepts to design. Eventually, I plan to teach the kids how to take their computer designs and machine them on a CNC mill and lathe using some of the equipment in my CNC Lab.
I took this photo from my back deck. You can see a live photo from my weathercam.
For the next four days, Kathy and her sister will be in Hollywood and then at the Universal Hilton, (Part of the Universal Studios complex) ,celebrating the unveiling of the latest star on the Hollywood walk of fame, dedicated to a leading entertainment family. The evenings will be filled with star-studded, white sequined jumpsuits, dinners, variety acts, possibly a surprise visit from Andy, and lots of home movies.
As for me, no such excitement. I get to stay home and really appreciate just how hard my wife works, day in and day out, tirelessly educating, cooking, and cleaning, and helping me with the business. She is truly an amazing woman. Perhaps I should nominate her to run for governor of California.
I miss her already, and it is only day one of four.
