Oh the ideas flow! Pondering.

Perhaps those many hours watching the British comedies has finally paid off. Tom and Barb on Good Neighbors and their self sufficiency and of course Red Green.

Oh yes!

The Goods would have found a way to hook up their ride (rotor tiller) so they could make ice cream and chop leeks while going to town! Margo would faint.

Red Green: If your wife's having a good time and you're not, you're still having a better time than if you're having a good time and she's not.

Haha!

Can't fit my spinning wheel in the trailer and have yet to find the perfect folding travel wheel (none of them look like " real" spinning wheels, lol), so I bring along my spindles, all of which are very beautiful tools in their own right. This is the top part of my "orchard" spindle made by Tom Forrester, a very talented Canadian woodworker.

Beautiful things.

Got my birthday present today, very unexpected! We were bopping around Manitoulin Island and passed through one of the many First Nations settlements. Stopped into a gift shop and found the most exquisite quill work boxes, the pictured one is less than 2 inches across. The chickadee and spruce bud are 3-dimensional. I fell in love/lust. Nearly passed out when I heard the price, in the three figures, but DH said get it, you will have the only one like it in the world, it is a work of art.

When I later looked to see if I could find out anything about the artist (Mildred Aguonie) online I discovered that one of her quill baskets had been chosen as a presentation gift by the gov't for Prince Charles and Princess Diana when they were in Canada in 1991!

There are many things I don't want or need, but books, yarn/wool, and sometimes art are my secret vices. There are a minimum number of " special" books dating from childhood on that would somehow have to come along if I ever reach fulltiming nirvana!

You have mentioned #1 in the top 3 things my hands will never touch again:

1. Lawnmower
2. Snow shovel
3. Paint brush

I have never touched a pool vacuum. But will add it to my list anyway.

Looking forward to touching my fire tongs in a few minutes. ;-)

RVM 28 checking in here.

We're in North Carolina visiting my mom. Tomorrow we start out for the Ashville area. We'll look round here for a few days (or weeks), then head farther north, eventually into New England.

Being a mutant means not needing an itinerary. (Or a thesaurus).
