David Launches Claire II

My buddy, David Birch, has launched his new steam boat. The hull is fiberglass, the engine is a hundred years old, the boiler is new and in the stern, strapped snugly is his caliope. This baby burns anything wood. It can make a couple knots against the Willamette going upstream. I can't wait to take a ride in her.

James Attacks Rust

James helped on the Checker today. He and I removed the headliner. Then he sanded the rust from the ceiling and treated it with the RustMort. It was a dirty job.

Clouds and Headliners

The clouds were awesome today (even for Oregon). I saw some attributes I very much liked and discussed with Mary having the headliner of the Checker painted after the idea of an Italian fresco. This will be interesting!

Spencer's End of School Dance

Here's Spencer's outlandish outfit for his end of school dance. All the kids looked great and the DJed affair was fun for him and his buddies.

Late Spring in the Backyard


Linda shows the bounty of a day trip to Ollala Lake. She, Erik and Robert limited. I made a marinade of oyster soy, rosemary and fresh orange juice. We all enjoyed the trout, especially Spencer who ate three big ones.
