|Tin Man and Swing Man|
Before 8 am I was up to the house applying Mineral Spirits to the tub in hopes of getting all remaining grout off before applying the new. This time I am going to try one of those stick on rubber tape things instead of grout. I have a little more scrapping to do then I will be ready for the new seal around the tub.
I still haven't determined where to put my tin man so he has been hanging around the farm "Post Office". He has taken on a pretty good coat of rust this summer. I like to hear him rattling in the wind. Next spring I may find him a spot out by the sunflower bed.
Swing guy got a new pair of jeans and for the first time some shoes. He really needs a name. I thought something that means guardian. When I looked for a guardian name Howard (home ward) and Edward (my dad's name) were two that appealed to me - both are supposed to mean "guardian of the home" I just feel funny calling swing man Ed because it is NOT my dad! Could go with Howie or Xander the Greek name for Protector. Actually, he kind of looks like a Howie!
Enough computer time. I am heading back to the old trailer to salvage a few things. Maybe I should load up the old push mower and take it to the scrap yard. Not today. Today I am going to remove one of the little fluorescent lights to use above the sink at the apartment. Maybe I will also take off all the cabinet handles for recycling purposes. Heading out!
