My work on the teardrop trailer has resumed. I’ve been working for a few weeks now, and it’s almost finished. I have yet to finish the galley hatch; trim, refit, seal, & install hardware on the doors, and secure wiring under the chassis. I’d like to sand everything again and apply a final coat of polyurethane to smooth the texture of the wood. So that’s my goal in the next little while.
While working on that, I listen to news from NPR, CBC, and other places. It is an astonishing situation. I feel so very disturbed by this. The George Floyd thing going down in the United States is horrific. Now, in Canada, where RCMP is known for overstepping their boundaries put forth by our laws, they are in the headlines again for treating brutally a First Nations person (a chief, no less). I have no doubt that police are overstepping their boundaries. I have supported police services all my life – without them, mayhem would occur. However, lately, mayhem is occurring because of them. Police are there to serve and protect. They are doing neither.
I still have not found work (as in, income). There really isn’t anything going on in my field. So, I keep working on my projects.
