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.

Wood cut up to dry off the ground. About nine tanks of gas and two or three chains to go. But still this is more fun than painting the house. Chains saws make neater noises than paint brushes.  Posted by Picasa

Only about 3 chords left to cut up.  Posted by Picasa

The house is getting closer to being painted gray. Posted by Picasa

It was cloudy and rainy yesterday so we spent the day watching the glue on the new tile dry. Our basement bathroom is no longer a Menards bathroom.  Posted by Picasa

Moral of story: never install cheap tile unless you want to have it redone a few years later. Making bowls is more fun than taking out toilet bowls. Posted by Picasa

See the gray wolf? If not blame Bush. There was a silver gray big canine right in this spot earlier.  Posted by Picasa

One of these days this stupid painting will be done. It is not as easy as it looks. And per usual blame Bush.  Posted by Picasa

Note to relatives: Thanks for the use of the costumes Posted by Picasa
