I suppose it says something for one's skill at painting 20th Century and later figures, in more or less camouflaged uniforms if, when you take the finished figures out to the back yard to spray them with sealant, a couple bounce off the tray, and you can't find the figures among the grass and dust of the yard.

I'd rather have the figures, though.

Aaahh!! So sorry to hear that. Of course once you get replacements painted you know you'll find the originals.

And yes, that does speak positively to your painting skills.

With your lawn mower.

I was well into my twenties and my Dad was still finding my toy soldiers, in the yard, with the lawn mower.
