like watching paint dry on a '70 Ford Mustang....
Those are freshly made business card holders, drying atop a hot kiln. They are a little thick, so I have to be certain they dry entirely. I had made pig and beagle card holders, but THE WORLD IS PEsTERING me for more, so I started thinking "elephant? GODZILLA!". Wait till you see HIM fired and in use, holding the card in his mouth....
I was also thinking that I outta repaint my fair display, the crates, shelves and such. The wife thinks I should keep that which is paINTED wasabi, wasabi (back of photo, not crates), and that which is yellow....made better. More what I intended. Which is BUTTERY yellow. You can see in my tidy garage last year's yellow Cratess---way brighter than I intended. So I bought something called "buttered corn" which is buttery, but better than butter! I started the paint job yesterday and I am very pleased. I have to do a little every day, because I find painting VERY BORING. Except when the wind blew all my wetly painted stuff onto me and I screamed "mother#$%!" and my neighbors who were right there painting their beautiful porch a few feet away were a little alarmed. They were also alarmed when I was up on a high ladder (remember, the wife is out of town) cutting down all these huge tree limbs, which hang over our car. They are the other neighbor's branches, and I guess I could wait until they flatten my car in a storm and I can sue them for a NEW car**. I hate their tree, but they won't take it down. Anyway, it is surrounded by poison ivy too. Why am I cutting this this apart by myself? Good question. There was this one HUGE limb that started coming down as I was up there cutting it and I raced off the ladder to the ground...and the limb came down on the ladder, knocking it into the poison ivy! REALLY! I yelled to the neighbors, rushing over to check on me, "ITS FINE! I meant it to fall like that! Haha, it was a widowmaker!!!!" I really did yell that...then I dragged the ladder...carefully...out of the poison ivy...and hung up the saw for the day.....and went back to sculpting the items above....
**OK, my new car? Shoot, I saw it yesterday driving down the road: a 1970ish Ford Mustang. Thing was a beauty, all black. *****My dream classic car might be more like a 1960s corvette, but this car was so slick it got into my dreams...where it was MINE ALL MINE!
*****Actually, the corvette I prefer? it is the cute white thing at the start of this video, convertible, behind the mustang...
