My first nautical experiment


My sister Lana captains the first ever boat designed and built by Keesie.
A piece of corrugated iron roof sheeting, flatenned by Keesie and then fashioned into this floating device, I was all of 9 years old at this stage.
I melted the bitumin that I used for sealing this vessel from the stockpiles that the road repair crews left behind.
Such fun.

Sister has/had confidence in your building skills for she's wearing no life vest!

GravatarWith skills like that you should be able to get a job with the new obama administration, building our new navy. Ha.


GravatarOh that is too cool. I tried a similar trick when I was nine, only we used an old bathtub that was lying around the pond. Didn't make it very far, needless to say. 

I'm just making the rounds at long last. Hope you've been well. I finally have something cheery posted on my blog. A 
fun meme for photoshoppers.
