Over the winter one of the new cupboard doors warped just enough that the magnet can’t catch it. I borrowed a clamp from my cousin Vernie and attached the clamp (below) before I left for Hamilton. I am hoping that the door straightens out. I have not put a finish on the cupboards yet, because they are not all built yet. This is probably why it warped. I am sure once they have some teak oil on them that they should remain warp free. At least I hope so.
I came back to Hamilton for two reasons. The first being that we have tickets to see Leonard Cohen at the Copp’s Coliseum on the 9th. Plus, I had to buy a car and Hamilton is a large city with a better selection of second hand vehicles.
I am 47 years old and this is my first car. The reason I need a car is because I will be bringing my artwork to the Kingston Springer Market all summer and it won’t fit in Baby, my 2006 Honda Vino motorbike’s, trunk. Certainly I can’t carry a table, chair and banner on her either. The car is old. Granted, not quite as old as me. It is a 14 year old VW Golf; which in car years makes her practically a classic. It has pretty low milage and it is in reasonable shape for its age. Hopefully the car (whose name I do not know yet) is ready on the 9th as promised. She is getting new brakes as well as a safety and air test done, then on the 10th I move to THO for the year. The house is already opened for the year so all I have to do is unpack and check to see if the clamp worked.
Then the season of 2013 can begin for me in earnest.
I decided on a Golf because they have a lot of storage in the hatchback and so the trunk will become my tiny house office and studio on wheels.
I hope she will be a good car.
