I used to burn my bridges behind me. I stopped, discovering that they burn on their own whether I am involved or not. All I can do is press on. We made it back to Ohio, a two day drive. We took a couple days rest (Reds ball game- blew it in the top of the first) before catching up on some projects. Thanks for the comments from my two blog followers Nicky, Rune, and Ken, ATW. I hope you two can stomach my missives as I do other stuff. I suggest that you alternate weeks then tell each other how crappy it was. I have some projects here involving firewood, smoker refurbishment, exterior Baltic birch and wenge. I hope to accomplish something. There's a new hardwoods yard in the area and they can provide the things I need......maybe. The wenge is providing difficulty. We first need to do nothing for a while. Everything seems to be on order but that's OK. We left on Monday and it seems that nothing is progressing (Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.....). We made a pilgrimage to the local thrift store to replenish our epoxy and paint encrusted wardrobe with 9¢ tee shirts and shorts for Ben.
The ball park. It seems like there were more Cubs fans than Reds fans. They sure played like it.
The weather was cool enough, but we were on the sunny side
The fauna. Here it consists of a backyard deer, a family of diggers (groundhogs), mosquitos, and the above mantis. I'll have to mow the flora!
Before we left I did accomplish something. This is the final hand shaped beam trough side cheek (Yay!). I still have to glue them in when we get back using last week's weak sneak tweak technique (yawn).
Ben made a new mast support for his boat to travel. We have it here now. What can I say, we're on vacation......................... So until next week, when the blog posting will be worse than this. God save you all................
So I am a romantic, but no good at relationships..............................this is the best version of this song. Ben found it..............I had forgotten it= heard it years ago.
Chuck! Send money!
