The End of Christmas

Ok, it's not the end end but the end of Christmas 2008 for me.
Last Friday night we finally got together with my two sisters to do our annual Christmas thing, we always have a great time with them.
Last year my sister Diane had me do a carving for her to give to Karla, the other sister, so this year I wanted to surprise Diane with a carving for her. She is finishing a mystery novel and I thought it would be cool to do a carving of the lead guy in the book, Ransom Woodley. The story is set in the mid 1800 England and centers around Ransom who just got out of the Crimean War. He had injuries to his leg so he uses a crutch, but hates it. Anyway, here he is.
