Sam's back!

You may remember the sage of Brent Vernon's figure, Sam (far left) being stolen during the night from his vehicle. A few weeks later Canon John Jordan came to the rescue by offering to sell his "Sweeny," a very similar character (below) to Brent. But Sweeny's hair and eye colors did not match Sam's. So Sweeny was sent to me for a make over.

But then came the problem of trying to duplicate the plastic brown iris for the eyes which the manufacturer had discontinued. Several of you sent iris' to me, for which I am very grateful. But none were a perfect match in size, shape, and or color until Keith Lovik sent me several pair from his remaining stock along with several small vials of paint with which to paint the back side of the iris for a perfect match.

Sweeny has now been fully repainted, new wig in place, eyes changed out and - presto - Sam's back! Only the people involved and, you, the reader's of this blog know the full story!

    It's a great thrill to see Sweeny take on his new persona as Sam! I can only pray that Brent will derive and share as much joy now as he did before with the original Sam, and that those who see and hear Brent and Sam together will share in that joy as they have before. God Bless you Clinton,and all else who played a part in "Sam's return".
