DIY and decorating time and I'm a bit pleased with this shelf. It was cut out of a 2 feet wide piece of solid pine board. A awkward shape to be sure. To get it fitting into the corner as well as it does was part skill and part luck. The skill part was down to Mrs TW who suggested and helped to make a cardboard template. The luck part is that I cut the wood right and it does actually fit!

The right-hand end will be made into a small enclosure with shelves. A small music centre will sit there. The whole thing will 'over-shoe' an existing corner cabinet as shown. I already built two speaker enclosures into that. By the time the shelf is edged and the wood is stained to match the unit, it should all look like one lump. Nothing will be done with the gap at the back. A space is needed to get the leads to and from the new TV that will sit on the shelf. The gap won't show when it's in place.

Sorry, I'm dumber than that.
I'll try again later.
Thanks for the pointers.

Katt always manages to find himself a patch of sunshine!

When taking a rest near the Sydney harbour, this seagull decided to pose for me.

Great photos for June so far. Well done, TW, looks good from here.

This is Chico, he's a new addition to the ranch where I ride horses. He's a dachshund/chihuahua mix, quite cute.

I love the pictures of all the animals!

Katt is gorgeous, as always, and Chico is so cute

And that seagull was really posing for you, Leau!

I forgot to mention Gatsby's birdie and Lady's dog. Don't want to leave anyone out Dot surely is a cutie!

Thanks minkpenny, we have had so many sad moments with a number of dogs the past few years and Dot has been around for 10 - with no mishaps (crossing fingers quickly). Yes she is a cutie.

Lunangry, I have an almost identical photo taken on Hampstead Heath. I'll try and find it and post it here when I do.

This is the little garden and pond at one of my favourite pubs, and one of the few left after the rest were demolished. It's on a road lined with millionaire country estates in Totteridge.

Tellywellies, I doubt your project will look like a "lump" when finished.
______________________________________

Sometimes while stopped at red lights, I'll take a picture of whatever's in view. This is The Free Library of Philadelphia, built in 1927. I remember going there when young and running around on the rooftop terrace and peering over the sides. (not sure, but that area's probably now closed to the public... too hazardous!)

A few months ago while at the library, I visited the rare book department and, among other things, got to see Grip, the stuffed raven! Grip was Charles Dickens' pet who inspired Poe to write The Raven.

This long-legged fellow was kind enough to stand quite still on the ice boom for me this afternoon, allowing me to take several pictures. I'm not sure exactly what he is, though, so maybe someone can tell me?

Looks like some sort of heron indeed.

Definitely a great blue heron. Nice shot, Liz!

Here's the nest of a cactus wren in a Joshua tree that I saw this morning on my walk in the nature preserve.

Here's a link to information about cactus wrens, for those curious.

I've just got back from a 5 day sailing trip along the south coast of England. On Sunday there was a sailing regatta of old gaff riggers on the Solent. This is one of them.

A fully working windmill at Denver, Norfolk. It is open to the public and you can purchase bread and cakes made on site, as well as seeing the whole milling process.

Wow, everybody has just outdone themselves this week!
Lovely butterfly, luna.
K, you always post such interesting historical photos.
And Gats, love the updates on your baby birds.

I could have sworn that I posted this yesterday, but I think I started and got sidetracked. When I was in Louisiana and taking photos of the street murals (posted last week), this less colorful artwork was right next to the murals.

This one's for that woman in Hong Kong -- the one who was Knocked Out by ummmm... somebody this week...




Kumquat jam in March '08, brought on by looking at Ren's Chinese New Year photos with all the kumquat trees and the jam she brewed. Ren sent me a recipe, which I dutifully sort-of followed (the kumquats were too tiny) and the jam is good!

Try asking, "Have you any kumquats?" in a store and see the funny looks you get.

Lol!! Well done indeed, Kapuskasing, on both counts, the jam and the knockout! Good luck in the next round and the jam looks delicious!
