New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.
-Mark Twain-

My new years resolution is the same every year and I always keep it. It is "I resolve to make no New Years resolution". -tom swaim-

Old Fools Journal: Rainy Day Project

Monday March 30, 2009

We had a little rain a few days ago (Friday) so I did a rainy day project.

Garden at daybreak.

In 16 years in this area I have never seen the water this high. Maybe I should think boat

This lamp was a flea market $2.00 item. It is a type that is used in ships and in industrial applications where there might be rough conditions. It's rough cast aluminimum painted black then wiped with some waxy bronze stuff I get at the hobby store. I've seen hundreds of these lamps but never in bronze. I think it turned into nice steampunk light for over my desk in the old Greyhound. I need three more now. The bronze bell in the lower right corner of the picture is used to ring for the servants but it doesn't seem to work as they never come.

These pretty weeds sprang up last week but the rain beat them right back into the dirt. I call them weeds because you can't eat them. Well you can eat them but I don't think they would taste very good.

SO on Saturday SWMBO (she who must be obeyed) made this cheeseburger meatloaf (complete with pickle and onion) to give us sustenance for all that we had endured. Not wanting to hurt her feelings I ate this delicious thing. Oh the sacrifices I make.

We got a new roof today . It was critically injured September 3, 2008. It has been 7 months living under saran wrap. Hurricane season starts in a few months. I am not near as prepared as I need to be.
