Who Am I?- My Lineage Part 2/ Results

My husband and I received our DNA results from 23&Me. The turnaround was sooner than expected. As eager as we were to receive the results, we didn't review them until a week or so later. We were very busy and wanted to take our times going over the information. 

We can both debunk our claims of Native American ancestry. I only have 0.6% while my husband's drop-down has 0.0%. Even more so, he can discontinue his 'slapahoe' tribe jokes. Ha! One thing I can take from this is, if your grandmother, or great-grandmother, and so on has ever had a long white-haired ponytail, don't attribute it to her being Native American. For your own information, find out to be sure.

We've connected with "cousins" of whom we share DNA traits with, some close, some distant. For instance, I've connected with a 'cousin' in Ireland. While I've connected my husband with a 'cousin' in Oklahoma. It's rather interesting finding long-lost relatives and connecting to learn more. The amount spent on the tests are worth it. 

Would it be crazy to take the Ancestry.com test to compare them with 23&Me, for kicks?

Gotham City Skyline....sort of

Yes, sort of. I didn't recreate an exact replica of Gotham City; just no.  Here is my version of a simple, imperfect city skyline to incorporate into my hubby's 'Bat Cave'.  Paint out the window(s) in use. Do not use ceramic paint. It's too watery. For better coverage, use latex paint. I used the same paint I used for the room walls. Let completely dry. Tape off the building outline. Use your imagination and Google or use Pinterest. Paint inside the outline with contrasting paint. When completely dry, carefully peel off tape. Use tweezers to remove the window tape blocks.  I had some leftover small bat wing logos. I lightly modpodged them onto the sky.

How to Spray-Paint a Leather Chair

Mr. B. wanted this chair from my Gramma sooooo bad. It's a plush, large leather chair she had as a pair in her entrance sitting area. She gave it to him like it was nothing. Hmph, what can I get so easily? Just kidding. She'd give you anything you asked for. I had no idea where this man wanted to put such a huge chair. With the Batcave project in planning stages, a spot was found for it. But how does a brown chair fit into a Batman/ batcave theme? Ah, old faithful spray-paint. Again, this chair was BROWN!  You must work with the paint as it is wet so the wet colors merge. Work in separate areas at one time if you're not quick enough. For instance, if you're too intimidated and find yourself working slow, work with the back first, then another section, and so forth.  I began by spraying the chair with the dominant color black.  While the black paint was still wet and at a distance, I sparingly sprayed the secondary color of the blue.

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na BATMAN!

Everyone has a childhood hero. At some point we've had an idol.  Do you ever grow out of either? Nope. Mr. B. is a perfect example of his childhood hero and grown-up idol..... Batman, Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na Batman!

With the kids leaving, it now serves its purpose as "The Batcave".   It was a fun project, with much toil and sleepless, hungry nights. Nevertheless, I enjoyed seeing all the pieces come together. I worked from hand-drawn plans with minimal tweaks. This goes back to me always saying planning is important
