A chronicle of the meanderings, false starts (which in retrospect, while sort of embarrassing turned out to be highly instructive), epiphanies, selective apathy (still evolving), wild mood swings, opinions (subject to frequent change), and life lessons of an inveterate dabbler (and her latest dabblings).

Humpty Dumpty Risen from the Ashes in Three Days

Mixed metaphors, mixed drinks, mixed breeds, love 'em all. And I guess it was more like three months. But Humpty Dumpty is back together again.




Amazing, right? How's THAT for a DIY project. HUGE thanks to "Hoss" (pictured above), our retired boat builder friend for all the guidance and hard work. He labored with Tom like a champ every day, for three months, to get her back together. Work days were short, since Tom had to work and Hoss is retired for a reason (little creaky), but they stuck with it. One more coat of paint, put the hardware back on, and she's ready for a little Indian Summer.
