Mother Made

These photos are several years old, my mother loved to create things every day in her craft room. She made a beautiful electric lamp for me out of an old oil lamp which is in my bedroom now. So many beautiful creations including the vase you see here. Sadly, my ex took this with her when we divorced which makes me unhappy. I’m glad that I haven’t spoken with her in six years… That’s all that I have left from marriage. Bitterness.

It Takes A Big Bar…

To cut through a tree trunk that massive! And the guy I used to work with for many years there has decades of experience using chainsaws. If you are not sure what a bar is regarding a chainsaw, the bar is the long part sticking out from the engine which carries the chain round and round.

Always be sure that your Bar Oil tank is full before your begin and that the chain is properly tensioned too. This photo is about two years old, the other one that I messed up real nice was taken yesterday.

Grungy Bullets And Liquor

That blue chair that Blondie is on was my mother’s, she spent many happy hours there doing crossword puzzles and watching her favorite TV shows. Those bullets and liquor have been sitting there for a very long time. Why I don’t know but the booze is probably still good, you can go ahead and test it! Sunshine and 108 degrees are the forecast for today, yet another toasty day in Las Vegas, a rainy day would be great for a change…
