Gorgeous!

I did some upholstery for a pontoon that looked very similar to the first picture but I only had the three seats and backs.  Pretty sure it is the same color.

Finished the "Husker" boat Friday.  The owners came by yesterday to see the back to backs.  Thought that all four of their tongues were going to hit the pavement when they saw them.  The seats are drop dead gorgeous, if I do say so myself!  Seriously, once we had the 4 pieces together and on the bases, my first thought was "Man, I did this?  Cool!"  They are going to pick them up Tuesday or Wednesday evening.  When they come to pick them up, they are going to tow the boat, which has been freshly painted husker red.  Also put new carpet in, don't know what color.  Anyway, they will put the back to backs in the boat, just not bolted, so that I can take pictures of the seats in the boat. 

He has a white canvas canopy, not real white at the moment.  He's going to bleach it and then drop it off when they bring the boat.  I've got some "Husker Red" canvas that we are going to fashion a "Husker N" out of and then trim it in black and that will be centered on the canvas.  There's a small rectangular piece of upholstery completely missing that they want me to fashion something for it out of the canvas as well.  Will post pictures of the boat later this week (after I've seen it).

Great work as always 'bro!!!

You still own any long johns? You should come up here and teach me a few tricks this winter to avoid those annoying snow birds. We'll go ice fishing. I've got two great recipes.

1) carefully scrape the snow off a large piece of ice, rinse with warm water. Do not dry. Put on skates and stockings, grab a stick and have a fist fight while trying to score. We call it hockey.

2) dissolve 2-3 cubes of ice in single malt Scotch whiskey. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO GET YOUR VAN OFF THE ICE ROAD. Enjoy.

They're good and dryer than propane appliances, but a wood stove is the best. Dry heat you can cook on or brew up some tea/perk some coffee. Anybody still remember when the coffee perk went on top of the stove ??? Totally different taste---especially in the bush.

Mom had a stove percolator when I was little.  At some point in time, she got a plug-in percolator.  I used to love and watch the coffee perk through the clear top of the percolator lid.  I thought it was most cool.  I'm sure she slapped my hand to keep me from lifting the lid so that I could see better.  I think the real perked coffee smells so much better than either of our methods now (Keurig or coffee pot).  I'm not sure that I ever drank any of her coffee so I have no basis of comparison as far as taste but man I used to love smelling coffee perking.  One of my favorite growing up memories is the smell of that coffee.

LOL Darren!

I did have to clean my monitor off after reading this, seeing how I spewed hot coffee all over it.  At least it didn't die like my freakin' Apple after getting about a tablespoon of coffee spilled on it.  GRRRR.

At least some one is getting some entertainment out of my predicament.

Where in photobucket do I copy the "www.example.jpg.url" that they are looking for when I paste beside " I have my own picture" before I hit "change profile"?

Darren:

I cannot answer that question.  I'm still trying to figure out how to size a picture down so that I meet the pixel requirements.  Hard to imagine, sometimes, that I used to be a computer geek.  But I was a mainframe weenie.

As far as entertainment out of your predicament, just remember I lost a less than 3 month old laptop due to no more than a tablespoon of coffee hitting the keyboard.  I've seen windows based computers in a flooded out store fire right up once they had dried out, without losing a single file.  Still cannot believe that stupid Apple puked and died.  Oh, and my $300 extended warranty doesn't cover "accidental water damage".  Then the salesman had the nerve to suggest that I just buy a new one rather than plunk down $900 to maybe fix it.  Bob bought me a notebook (think that is what it is).  He said pretty much all it will do is internet which is all I need since I have my tower down in Sew & Sew land.  Just miss not being able to surf the web in the evenings.  Hope to receive my new whatever it is by the weekend.  Will work out nicely since we're in crazy land again this week.  New floors being installed in the living room dining room starting this morning.  Bob & I had a fun filled weekend moving furniture around to empty the living room.  My back is particularly grumpy this morning.  Just have the 7' credenza that holds all the electronics to move and the installers get that pleasure.  At $20 per piece of furniture they touch, we decided to live with the aches and pains and only have them move what is absolutely necessary.

Gotta get in and out of the shower so Bob can shower and be dressed by 8 as well.  Also have a contractor coming over to price the bathroom/changing area off Sew & Sew land.  This is probably not going to be a fun place to be in about 2 hours.  Definitely not a productive week.  Hope to embroider some shirts but not counting on it.

Y'all knew failure was not an option, right? MISSION,MISSION,MISSION. Nothing wrong with a little temper tantrum if time allows though LOL. {Virg---wipe your screen,wink}.

For those of you playing the home version of this game; here's what finally worked:
>Went to my profile here and clicked on the forum information under modify profile
>Wiped out the "http// blah blah" completely.
>Opened photobucket in a new page and found my pic.
>opened the pic from the thumbs view and right clicked.
>selected "copy image location"
>Back to this site's page , selected " I have my own picture" and pasted to that field.
> scrolled down and hit change my profile.
>Budda boom--there is my pic and saying but it doesn't show when I return to the main board.
>left the site and restarted ol' skylab here and we're sunshine and lollipops.

Hope this helps someone out. They can send me some Tim bits---, eh!
