This Friday started off with Rob mowing and trimming the yard before it got too hot. He also did some other outside maintenance type things before retreating inside to the A/C, showering, dressing, and off to the grocery store. Trisha vacuumed, washed clothes, and did a few other chores to get ready for our trip to the coast on Sunday. You can read all about it on our 2013 Trips page.
But back to the blog. None of what we just told you was very exciting at all was it. But then, Rob's cousin Sharon posted on his Facebook wall, "This one's for you Cuz!! Love ya, mean it!!" What she was referring to was a whole blog post featuring Rob (she must have been suffering from blogger's block too) and the disorder he suffers from "Tinkeritis." Cousin Sharon points out that owning a camper has made it much worse, but Cousin Sharon apparently doesn't know about the hours upon hours Rob spent working on his boat.
To be fair, Cousin Sharon also notes that she too belongs to Tinker's Anonymous. In that tiny statement comes the inspiration for our blog post today. We just have to show everyone some of Cousin Sharon's tinkering.....
Before and after views of a SplashT@B green beverage dispenser.
A really nice Dremel Moto-Saw that we suspect Cousin Sharon used camping as an excuse to buy!! (Rob want's one too!!)
Jackson's very own name sign she whipped up when Jackson pointed out he didn't have one of his very own!
A before view of a boring polished aluminum trash can........
And now an after view of the same trash can all fancified by Cousin Sharon's creative talent!!!
New shoes for Splash T@B!!
(We do wonder how Cousin Sharon installed those though?)
A pizza bag for her leveler.
(We're pretty sure this was added to an order to get free shipping.)
A lamp post that was a joint effort on the part of not one, but two Tinkerer's.....
(Guess who they may be.....)
And while we could go on and on, this final picture sums it all up. The big smile on either Sharon or Rob's face when the UPS, FedEX, or USPS person makes a delivery at their door.
Thanks for checking by today. Here's a link to Cousin Sharon's POSTCARDS blog. Check back by again Sunday evening to hear about our trip to Murrells Inlet, SC.
Until next time, stay safe out there......-R,T,&J.
