I’m tired of writing about political stuff, so I’ve decided to turn this blog into a record of my effort to build a boat. Look, I even changed the subtitle!

I’m not sure how this will go, but I feel like I’m ready.

In addition to my undercabinet sliding baskets, I’ve also built a tree-house:

(Note the trap-door with a pulley.)

And, I’ve built a pond and nature habitat for our pet turtle, Hammy:


And I’ve built that screen porch that I mentioned months ago:

If you look closely you can see my wife’s bra hanging from a clothesline inside. She just left for a six-week vacation with the kids. I plan on it still hanging there when she returns.

I figure this family vacation will give me a lot of time to build my boat, although I’ll be joining them in Maine for the week of July 4.

So, tomorrow I’ll post my progress on the boat so far. It will mainly center around cleaning the garage so that I have room to work.

Now, don’t get me wrong — I’ll still probably blog politics and journalism from time to time, but I find myself tired of trying to drum up copy for those subjects. Just go read Instapundit, he’s much more interesting.

Please stay tuned.
