My good friend John is always finding treasures for me. He knows the Powell River back country better than anyone. I never know what it will be, but here are some of the most memorable treasures he's brought home:
- An old manual typewriter
- An old logging two-man crosscut saw
- An oil can and tea kettle
- An old-time fire extinguisher
- Lots of pretty rocks
- Lots of interesting driftwood
- Rusted chains and tools
My goose has a prominent perch in the kitchen, but has continued to deteriorate. I decided it was time to do something about it.
And it was a good thing I did. When I moved him, half of the head fell off and by the time I got it to the picnic table, the other half went too. I whittled a stick to fit into the neck and glued the head back together with some Amazing Goop. I also used the Goop to seal the edges of the cast iron halves and sealed the surface with several coats of polyurethane. While I was at it, I made a bark brace for his missing leg. Now Mr. Goose should last for years to come.
Thanks John for all the treasures. You're a great friend. -- Margy
