Said construction was gonna be done in June!? - Tom Ray's Day 201128

I was told I was only briefly going to be kicked out of my train car studio space while they dug a new basement for a restaurant next door. That was over a year ago. This video is after a meeting we had in the spring where we were told construction was almost done and we should be back by June. 

At the time of editing this video, it is now well into the winter and nothing had changed yet and we don't know when it will.

Also, I look at some of the retro/vintage items I sold from my online business today. More vintage pop-culture items available in my eBay Store https://ebay.to/2vMYStC

Plus, at the end of the video, I draw my daily autobiographical webcomic.

This is a video of my daily life since I decided to sell collectibles and pop-culture items I collect on eBay to help support my art career instead of taking on freelance work. You can subscribe to these videos on my YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/tmray

Here is what I found out about this game https://candy-land.fandom.com/wiki/Candy_Land_Wiki Candy Land is a board game about children exploring a world made out of candy and other sweets that originally came out in 1949. In every version of the game, there are a group of children that go through Candy Land. In the earliest versions of the game, it was a realistically drawn boy and girl.

It's rumored that Eleanor also did the original artwork but I didn't find anything that

Bent tire.

No one could have got in there so I don't know what happened?

Rainfall.

It always makes me so happy when that happens.
