    Running on my feets. A lot. And the swimming.
    Wresting vegetative foodstuffs from soil with toil. Playing Gentleman farmer, as it were.
    Art is always happening here. And ukulele music...
    Making the boats.
    Using the boats. Often in conjunction with fish harassment.
    The reading of books. Preferably in the hammock under the persimmon trees.
    Apparently, now, this forum...

    If I don’t call it stealing, how can I pretend to be a pirate? Yar! Peace, Robert

    Damn. Stealing that technique. See? There’s a reason it took me so long to put windows in my boat. Windows? Yep. Okay, truthfully, the ports on the Frolic are done, but the new boat will certainly be done with trim rings, ala Oyster. Okay, well that’s a lie, too. The next boat already has its ports laid out, too, and they will also be ringless... The trim washer/faucet washer deal, though... Peace, Robert

    Working on details. Too smoky from the fire to go outside. Ken, the motorized one will be a copy of an Austin 7 Ulster with a 200cc engine... Peace, Robert

    Elliptical deadlights. Or successively larger round deadlights. Maybe three? Either would look classy on this little sweetheart. Peace, Master Of Aesthetics

    Molds? That’s balsa, there. :) Spose it would be much easier to just gloop stuff into a mold... I always do things the hard way. Which, the car model progresses. Peace, Robert

    Footy RC boat. Waiting for a bulb. Once the RC is figured, it can be mounted, and the deck put on. The topsides will be white, with a gold bootstripe. Peace, Robert

    I will tone down the cyber attacks, Frank. Sorry. Seriously, what them two said. I have a great idea, actually. I can sell a boat and donate the proceeds. Win win. Then I have to build another boat! Peace, Robert

    Wait. Why does the house look so wonky? Chick, my buddy and I have always maintained the difference between a pro builder and an amateur is that a pro knows how to fix errors. Or, rather, how to seamlessly integrate unplanned variables into the finished package. Reading these threads just makes me more angry we don’t live in Luxembourg, or somesuch. Shoot! Even I could drive all the way across Luxembourg to visit friends for a day or two. This big old patchwork monster we inhabit? Shoot, it’s a day or two to get across it! Hahaha. One day, Brother, I hope we get to giggle and fuss and carry on with our dumb jokes and puns around a burning pile of tree bones on a stretch of finely ground rocks, adjacent to a body of liquid life. Until then, well, thankfully we got forums! I got mad love for you Chick. You’ve become a real friend, buddy. Thanks for all it. Mostly for just being a real guy. Just a normal, real guy, like allus. You’re a good example to follow, Brother. Even if you can’t cut straight. 😂 Peace, Robert

    Oy! Sorry, you lot. The past few months have sucked the life out of me, but I’m better. Sorta. Plus, I also got a spate of real work, which is nice. There is a pic attached of something I’m making. 3/16” pine boards gotten out from the tree by hand. Chop, split, plane, (hand)saw, chisel, file, scrape. And, we’re in the midst of a 30 day stretch of 100f plus temps, with overnights in the 70-80s. This is not brilliant epoxy weather. Haha. Lately, though, it’s the fire. There is a BIG one close by, and we’ve already helped a few friends evacuate. But! Just yesterday I shaped the forward end of the rubrails a bit, and got out the rudder blade and leeboard for sanding today. They’re getting faired, and paint prepped. Peace, Robert P.S. I have been eking out a model of the body style I intend to use for the pedal car. Yes, I have many irons in the fire. Shoot, this ain’t even mentioned all the softball daughter’s been playing. You know, in softball when a girl hits a homerun, they give it to the folks? I got two, so far this summer...

    What the hay. On Memorial Day, a lifelong friend took his own. Then, two Sundays ago, my children’s life long friend was gunned down in an attempted robbery. He was shot in the back of the head. Old Goofy Robert is kinked up tight, y’all. Boats just seem pretty frivolous, right now. Thankfully, I have all y’all to pull me through, and shove me along. I reflect on all the coulda should wouldas in life, and realize I need to. Peace, Robert
