Marty lately

Marty went to class on his roller blades today. I peeked out to watch him go. I've always loved seeing him skate. He needs new wheels. I offered to buy some, but he says he'll do it with his money, because they'll probably be $100. Oh. Not his little-boy skate prices.

A few days ago he asked me to come and spot him on a project, to be outside the jeep. He was bending a piece of heavy aluminum, to make a curved shield. He had already done a center bend, but wanted the edges rounder, and thought of what he had to make a mold and a press.

(Photos to come, but I will say... it involves a hole dug in the vacant lot, and his jeep.)

Curiousity piqued re: the Jeep project . . .

Unrelated to this post, I saw something online tonight that tickled me and I thought you might get a kick out of it too: Make Your Own Shakespearean Insults --
