We Get by With a Little Help From Our Friends…

15 Sep

Sorry….it’s been a while since I sent out an update; but we’ve been havin’ a bit of fun with friends.  Matt and Faye have traveled from far-away Canberra Australia to say ‘hi’.

So far we’ve done a bit of honky-tonk in Nashville,

a bit of history at David Crockett’s home

and at the Shiloh Battlefield,

a bit of fishing with our Mississippi friends, and even a bit of boat fixin’. Matt and Boyd have completed the hookup of the water tank system,

the reinstallation of some of the re-varnished brightwork, and even re-secured the upper-bridge fixtures….who knows what they’ll be able to accomplish tomorrow?

Check out this cool photo…can you see Boyd’s reflection on the right side of the water fitting?

      Hi Heather. Great to hear from you! We’re putting Matt and Faye to work….maybe that’s just what we need to get Bushranger into the water. Hope all is well with you and your family.
