It's been a while since I've submitted any Poser artwork or worked on any fiction. When I've not been working or dealing with family stuff, I've spent a lot of time hiking outside this summer and have slept pretty well, hence less insomniac hours and less desire to play artist.
Really, the only thing I have done on the computer with any of my hobbies since the beginning of the year is Fallout 4. After doing just about everything one can do in the game with a single character, I am finally closing in on completing the main story. I pursued the quest-lines with each of the factions as far as I could without committing to any of them, explored just about every location on the map multiple times, and have a digital mini-kingdom of settlers. I've had a lot of fun with the game, so I've been reluctant to wrap it up. Some Fallout fans do multiple play-through's with different builds, but I won't be doing that, because there would be too much repetition (going after the bobbleheads, for example) with any new play-through. Vault-Tech workshop will be coming out next week, so I'll be able to procrastinate the end of Fallout a bit longer, but eventually I will shut down my gaming and go back to Poser artwork.
I've tried to ignore the idiocy going on with the two parties. I rest my case that Donald Trump is the most un-qualified person to ever receive a major party nomination. I think it is a done deal that cretin will lose the election in a 1964-style blowout, so it looks like we'll be stuck with the special-interest politburo queen for the next four years.
Oh well, it'll be back to a nice summer and the best time of the year in Oregon.
