Final Wall And A Hodgepodge Of Sausage


Row boat of Babes! Now Great Grandmothers!

Today I do have the wall done, but thought I would add in a little Sausage so we are not confused with some home decorating show. I even chucked in a babe shot to piss off any Soccer Mom Karen’s who think we are just here to talk about colors and textures of wall finishes.  And for those of you that are a little confused by the term Karen. It’s not a reference to our Karen, who is the complete opposite of “A Karen” Still confused. CLICK HERE! See you learned something today despite yourself. And now one more vacant brain cell has been used up with the latest trivial information. Sorry! Ya, Sausage isn’t all that healthy but suure fun going down.

Chisels and planers and found an old rusty First Aid kit in a pile

T Shirt Iron on on ebay


Ya! Thats my trailer! The Rancharo though.. Oh hell ya

Thats the set up!

mmmm, Before photo shop, it was called retouching, or a composite image. This is a good one although the scene just is not possible. Someone would have to have waited for the shot and in that second? The point of view of the photographer has to be believable as well.

AND THE LATEST TREASURE FROM BOB MURDOCK! In the new battle of the Marina and Railway treasure finds.

ZENITH Parts box

Oh hell ya!

So cool!

And so it goes, a cacophony of images and unconnected stuff. SAUSAGE SUNDAY

    Looks great – I’m really jealous of that long work bench and having all the tools organized.

    When I was a kid my mother came up with the great idea of us organizing Dads work room for him as a surprise – really bad idea! He complained for 50 years afterwards that he couldn’t find anything. I learned then to never mess with someone’s workroom!

    The wall is really well done! I am fascinated by all you are doing to preserve our boating history… We visit the Richmond Area not infrequently (kids and grands) and I was wondering when can I come and see all this in person….and what is the cost of admission???

    Hey Matt, when do we get to see the shitter? I am hoping that you bought that fabulous toilet seat that you featured in a spread a couple of weeks ago. Regardless, I’m sure that you will do the bathroom proud as well.

    I had to laugh at the Karen reference. My daughter has had a cat for almost a year without giving her a name. Nothing quite fit, she was always causing problems with the dog and very vocally whining about things. 2 days ago it was declared that her name is Karen, for the reason you were referring to!

    Love the shop and very jealous of your situation! Someday a road trip will be in order.

    I am envious of the size and decor of your shop!!!

    But, with all of that non-NOS ‘stuff’ displayed — is that going to affect any score that you might be awarded by ACBS (Antique & Classic Building Society)???

    I Love that wall! I love that long, long workbench, all clear for laying out the job! I have been in so many “shops” (dark dirty caves is more like it!) where every square inch of bench surface is piled high with a mess of junk and debris…no place to work at all…can’t find a tool, zero organization….! Trash on the floors, filthy restroom…..!!

    You have created the extension of a beautiful mind, it is so beautiful to see!

    And goddam manly, too!!

      Oh ya, love that long workbench too. I’m always rigging up some Rube Goldberg thing to catch long off-cuts from the table saw chop saw planer etc. Usually, they can be seen coming out of the garage door or one time out the window! It’s all fun though when you’re’ in your shop!

    The “trick” photo of the fish being caught reminds me of my editorial days (automotive). I once ran into an editor from Field & Stream (or some such title) and asked him about those impossible photos taken at water level of the fish flying out of the water with the angler in one of Grumman’s best in the background. Oh yeah, the way to get those was to go to the lake, catch a fish, put it in a freezer until solid, then put it back on the hook, get the photographer in the water, then have the fisherman jerk the fish out of the water 36 times and hope you got the shot.
