Next project!

Another 30 seconds of my 15 minutes used up...

It's even harder to see this "car" from the outside. There is quite a bit more to be stripped off, although the mover may be doing more of the stripping this time. Lots of mysteries to be solved, questions to be answered.

I'm on YouTube! (am I famous now?)

This is an early version. The birth year of the car has been changed and is more likely 1869.

This is moved without disturbing the tree right in front of it.

Allergic to "fencing"?

So the theme of this week seems to be fencing.
Replacing a rotted, and slotted post, I was NOT besotted with the prospect.

And painting. I built this fence with removable sections so that I can pull them out and power wash then paint them on saw horses, rather than bending over, getting stuck with rose thorns etc
But I still don't enjoy doing it. So in the midst of my mental grumbling the question occured to me, "If one were allergic to 'fencing', would you treat it with an epee pen?"

Open Caboose!

Next week is the annual dinner, so this week was spent tidying up and putting back the ladders and adding steps to one end to make it all pretty.

Now if the cupola would just make an appearance..

The general opinion is that it is starting to look like a caboose.

Another stroll on the beach, another prize!

I should have put a coin next to this for perspective, but it's slightly smaller than a quarter.
