So, we have a big week of changing Japan’s er, like science communication.

Cortez, what a killer.

But the real stuff was at the weekend. I play with my boat.

The Kanna is the  best tool. It untimely rips that wood from its mother's womb

All you pretty women stand in line, because this weekend I am working on the boat. I plane down my oars. I drench them in teak oil and then apply the first coats of varnish. I position the stag horns.

Thanks Patrick

Spring is surging. The sap is spouting. This means butterflies, who watch me sand and varnish with  Etonian disdain.

Warm my toilet seat.

A quick break to play music in a shopping center which allows me to stop by the dirty pool.

I'm Mandy - fly me.

Jonathan and I hoist the sail for the first time. Regrettably the wind is strong and coming from the worst possible direction. No worries, we get a pretty good idea of rigging and hoisting protocols.

If I win some money , sure nuff, I'll bring  you some.

Quite frankly, playing with boats in warm Spring sunshine with good company is  very fine.

A little girl comes by and wants to sit in the boat.

I see the future very optimistically.

    I hope that heron is friendly, looks kinda mean.
    Are you planning on dipping the lug? Looks like a mini Zulu herring boat.
    Great stuff.

  2. Apparently, thus spake the builder, no lug dipping is needed. The boat is wonderful and the herring boat comparison makes her more so.
