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.

Our life enhancement consultant may still be in school but she came up with a very good recommendation. She said we would have more fulfilling lives if we exercised more and suggested we try a stationary bike. Mrs. TWWT has been using it everyday as part of her daily exercise program. Mr. TWWT uses a Nordic Crack machine. Posted by Picasa

All that is left of the original 11 cords is the tarp. Fullment comes from the completion of tasks.  Posted by Picasa

This is wood for 2007/2008 plus a little extra. We can find fulfilment by watching progress as it dries before we split it up again. No high-priced consultant can come up with a better way for us to spend our time. . Posted by Picasa

After cutting up all the logs and spliting them was done you ought to know we would have a freeloader on our hands who moved in.  Posted by Picasa

Rcommendation #2 from our life enhancement plan was to watch the hot tub drain but it drained so slowly that it was too boring even for TWWT.  Posted by Picasa

In one of the original entries in this blog there was a Countryside article about successful country freeloading. In it the article talked about having a freeloader on your hands rather than being able to leech off your guests. Here is an example of freeloading guests.  Posted by Picasa

Once again one of the visitors to the TWWT House expresses his boredom with the lives of the residents.  Posted by Picasa

Recommendation number 6 of the life enrichment plan said we should watch the action in the hot tub while the relatives were up using a hidden camera. Here is one of the few G-rated pics we got from the hidden camera.  Posted by Picasa

Recommendation 7 of the life enrichment plan done as a student project by MKA said we should practice right midnfullness by watching dirt settle.  Posted by Picasa

We could only watch for a short while because the dirt settled pretty quickly. Posted by Picasa

House nearly painted. Not much time left to watch the paint dry so we willl have to savor every minute of it before the wet paint is gone. The windows in the center bottom of the house need caulk. Water leaks are one of the fews exceptions to the rule that the best imperfect job is a job well done.  Posted by Picasa

More proof of how boring the life of TWWT is. Here guest Bubba the Banker checks out since sleeping is more interesting than being around TWWT.  Posted by Picasa

We had our niece MKA who is styding to be a party/play consultant analyze our boring lives as a student project and suggest ways to lead a more fulfilling life. She suggested we watch the electric meter turn if watching the firewood dry got too tedius. We will report on her other recommendations as we implement them.  Posted by Picasa

Given the boring lifestyle of the TWWT sometimes Mrs. TWWT invites swarms of relatives up to relieve the boredom. Over Labor Day she invited up a niece, MKA., who had just spent a year in Spain working on her degree in partying. (She is seen here on one of her road trips). MKA pomised to bring her mentor Ms Aquafiestas with as the main entertainment act. Ms. Aqufiestas was MKA's mentor who helped turn a shy, quiet girl into a raging party animal in one short year. The evening promised to be a winner until we learned Ms. Aquafiestas had a headache and could not attend. MKA took decisive action to save the party and was somewhat successful. Even without the main act this weekend will probably be the most exciting time of the year up in in the middle of nowhere. Posted by Picasa

Here is the invited special guest Ms. Aquafiestas taken by a surveillance camera in a store in Spain.

Here is a sampling of the feast.  Posted by Picasa

After feasting some of the guests took a siesta since there was nothing else to entertain them since the special guest failed to arrive as promised.  Posted by Picasa

MKA and RA here try to sing the bucket song while taking pictures of themselves at the same time.  Posted by Picasa

MKA refused to let the problem with the appearance of the special guest dampen her partying. Here she takes a call from a wellwisher.  Posted by Picasa
