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.

The soul of a flawed bowl

Prometheus (an ID for a person who posts on a wood turner’s group in Google) said recently "A flawed work has a soul, and contains in every curve and plane a reflection of the dedication and work of the person who created it. It is the union of all those things which make us human crystallized, and reconnects us to the hundreds of thousands of years in which our species has struggled with mind, heart, and hands to bring us to our present level of wealth and leisure. The flaw is history set in material form - displaying a snapshot of the temporary limitations of,
and even more importantly, the promise of an ever-changing evolving mind. "

TWW used to say if you find a design error make it a product feature. Prometheus is much wiser. TWW gave a city friend an oak bowl this weekend with a hole in the bottom. Was it a design or production error or a reflection of the dedication and work of the person who created the holey bowl? As long as she does not put soup in the bowl she can wonder about the soul of a flawed work.

Missing body

Please help us find a missing body. Since no body in the family will lay claim to this shirt, it must have come from someone who was able to subvert the security system and enter the house and remove their shirt (perhaps while using the hot tub). If you have any information on the owner of this shirt please contact Mrs. TWW.

The shirt has a symbol on it. The picture below makes the symbol look reddish but it is really white.

Life enrichment or existential crisis?

This last ceiling light in the basement may appear nondescript to an outsider but to the residents of Garbin Moraine it is a watershed. It was the last task on the three year nine month project to build the house in the sticks. Like any project we are declaring success and moving on. The next question is how TWW will occupy his time and find a meaningful existence.

Life enrichment is all relatives

It was buck hamburger night, so Jr tried to get a buck to grill with his BB gun.

Here TA demonstrates life enrichment by putting on a light show using the dimmer in the kitchen while ignoring all of the calls from women on his cell phone to show he has his priorities straight.

The family torch singer gave us a sensual rendition of 'Smoke Gets in Your Eyes' . Someone noted she did not inherit her father's voice and everyone was grateful.

Here the executive director of the cabin trust enlightened people with a demonstration of a new intestinal gas extraction (IGE) technique.

Finally, MA Jr. brought her new boyfriend. She must have kissed him before posting other pics on her blog:

No longer a barn

This past week JTRWG Construction Company has been at work on the family cabin changing it from its former barn personality into a lake gambrel chalet. This week the crew got the old barn siding exterior off and covered the building with white moisture breathing material.

Next comes the stone wall around the lower part of the building and log siding over the rest. Here the executive committee of the trust mulls how high the stone wall should be.
