endings

The very last day of summer vacation.
The very last book to give away.
The very last winner.

Congratulations, Jen on the Edge!  You are just warped enough to enjoy The Recently Deflowered Girl by Edward Gorey as much as I did.  I promise it will arrive at your door in less than a fortnight!

In other endings, about three weeks ago Mr. T started with this:






With a LOT of help from his brothers, his parents and his friends,


five impact screwdrivers, a heavy duty cart, two bottles of bug spray, 


He reached the end of his Eagle Scout project.



An 800 foot boardwalk through Happyland Elementary's Nature Center.
Whew!

(I'm bursting with pride.)

  9. What a great project! I'm wondering what they used to keep the wood from breaking down? Any protective coating? Will there be a plaque stating who built the walkway? There should be!
