For those who know me from XF Fandom, I swear I'm going to finish that damned Memorial Day story one of these years. It isn't that I've abandoned the story or the fandom, it's just that I haven't been able to get myself to write. phoenix_turtle9 once commented that for me, writing may not be that different than art. I think she may be on to something as this afternoon's contemplation of resuming the story resulted in this scrapbook page instead:




Walter S. Skinner, U.S. Marine, 1968


(And my hat's off to all you real veterans out there too.)

That's great. You're getting back into writing again. Terrific scrapbook page, too.

When you post something new, we'll have to compare notes on the agony and the ecstasy of writing. :-)))

I thought you might. *grin* In my warped mind, Walter's, um, sister-in-law? made the page for him. (Geez, this is bad. I've been away from our story for so long I can't recall our OCs names.)

Yes, that's definitely something Nancy would make for Walter.

I'd like to think that was Walter dressed up for some event cuz Alex would enjoy taking that off him.

I rather like your idea, but it can't be Walter at the age he is in this photo as Alex would have only been two at the time. But I bet Walter can still fit into his uniform and I bet he'd wear it if Alex asked.
