Cat is Growing, or, Growing a Cat

The Donut
The Donut

Mina renamed it. Cat is now known as Donut, although it still doesn’t listen to a goddamn word I say. This is why I like dogs. I generally don’t really care for cats, but they seem to be attracted to anywhere I move in the world, leaving litters of kittens on my every doorstep, and never listening to a goddamn word I say. Dammit.

Minor Lamentations – Kujira Crown

The culprit: Bubble rust
The culprit: Bubble rust

The Crown needs to be stripped, patched, and repainted. The last time it was done, it was done poorly. I’m thinking about using a shop just around the way, so I can go watch over the work every day. Just need to save up some money now.. I’m sure I’ll have enough in a few years. Until then? An experimental¬†mix of vinyl wrap patch, black ink markers, and spray paint. The Kujira Crown was apparently made in an era when Japanese steel wasn’t that great – so they made it thicker. There aren’t that many holes rusted through, except at the edges. It does need to be patched properly, though.
