Like Hannibal Smith said... "I love it when a plan comes together!" I received this week my first return on investment from Mother Ocean. My oldest daughter even said "High five dude... and you owe me $30 dollars." Ok we're not talking about four digit figures but it's enough to keep my interests moving forward. Certainly a first installment towards next summer's adventure (or even a down payment on a sailboat I have my eye on). With the cooler weather comes garage sales and the buys have been really good. My next consignment will include several wooden model sailboats, a tandem kayak and a turn-of-the-century ship lamp. My best score was a set of bronze ship portholes (rectangular and round) plus various teak blocks & tackle. I cleaned up several of the bronze pieces and have been varnishing the teak wood. Check back in a few days for pictures. And yes Vic... you'll get your cut!
