TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

Snow falling to whiten gray February.  Posted by Picasa

Monday, February 20, 2006

All of the pictures for February 20th are for the annual family ski weekend. This year was the first annual Elders Ski Weekend since the people who showed up did not ski much and no kids showed up. See the captions for the pictures to see what you missed.

This year saw a first as one of the elders volunteered to help with dishes with no prodding.

After supper on Saturday the family conducted its usual Bush-bashing session in spite of all the good things Bush has done for them.

The hostess at Garbin Moraine Manor greeting the guests.

The sky was carrying out the family tradition by mooning people early in the day.

Traditional ski weekend meal done in the fireplace (this year we used the bake oven in the masonry stove).

The deer spend more time playing in the snow than the elders.
