Love is in the air. No really, you can smell it! We are getting close to Springtime and those glorious fresh varnish jobs. There is nothing like a fresh or refreshed varnish job. If you have spent weeks sanding and varnishing, you know that moment when a dream coat goes on and you just sit there and look in awe at how deep and pure the finish is. You feel like you don’t deserve such a stunning finish. For a brief moment you just want to dive in naked and swim around in the deep grain and varnish mix of perfection. Oh yeah. OK, maybe this is a little disturbing. Was it the naked part? But ya gotta admit, when you see that fresh finish, it warms your heart.
And then it all fades after a couple of months, after the first scratch, after the first rain, it all kinda fades like the finish. Oh sure you love the varnish, for better or worse, and you are committed to it. But you secretly desire that time when your varnish was new and exciting, when you would sneak out for a noon time ride. Admit it. That’s what we now call “Varnish Lust” Today is Varnish Lust Day! Post your fresh varnish shots. You know you have them. Those naked shots of your true love without all that chrome of stuff covering her.
