Well no one will recognize us at Lake Summit we have a new look !

My beloved little woodie is gone!

Chubby sets out 24-7 and was developing a real bad case of acne. I ground down where the ply was seperating and slapped on some exterior house paint I purchased in 91. Yep! that's 1991. We had purchased way to much to trim the house and now it's all vinyl. I wanted to stop the further degradation of the face of the wood. I kinda like the green but it screams at me that it needs a halo around the edges and perhaps a heavy dark band at the bottom to take away some of the roundness. It needs 2 more coats if I leave it as the finish. Thinking about tapeing off random width boards and getting out the wood graining tool and overstaining with a dark dark brown faux wood grain. I would have to do everyother board then retape and do the alternating boards but when done it would have the weathered barn look then a couple coats of clear epoxy.

Do ya think I will have to change Chubby's name to Kermit ?

It's not easy being "Green" :shock:
I like the new color. You could go "Camo" if you come up with more paint. Problem is you could'nt find it in the woods.

The Deepest spot in Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes is 1,333 feet or about 222 fathoms. This profound depth could easily contain the entire 1,250' Empire State Building, even with a 50-foot-tall King Kong perched atop.

A total melt down ! We have been the 1st out in the new year 2 years running and now we are getting too old for the cold? You can't shove that into a barn in October but we still gotta freeze our butts off in January. We must continue to set an example for our brothers in California and Florida that teardropping is not a seasonal thing it is a way of life :D

LEST WE FORGET :Image

"Just couldn't miss it"
How's about a deep fry fest? I tried out my turkey fryer a few weeks back and you can just keep dumping stuff in those things. Plus Amy can leave her nice one at home! :lol: If anyone wants to bring something to deep fry bring it along, the shivereeeeeeeee tank has been filled.

Talked with Karl tonight on the land line his back is the reason. I talked with him at length and he really hates missing the fall gathering but he is just not able. He has become a good friend and I wish him the best.
