My left shoulder, having done battle with notoriously huge and fierce Michigan mosquitoes, is on the mend. The rotator cuff was not damaged and surgery is not required - which means the surgeon doesn't get the opportunity to make a measure/cut mistake on me!. The culprits are arthritis and tendinitis. The treatment was a steroid injection and my shoulder has responded quite quickly and favorably. The shoulder is not at 100% but I am back to work on boat and other projects (including correcting last week's measure/cut mistakes).
After painting the new flower boxes for the front porch there was a bit of paint left on the roller, so I wiped off a spot on Gardens' hull and painted a test patch. I wanted to see how much more fairing is needed (quite a bit, actually).
The blue tint and the ripply/wavy look are attributable to the light in the barn and not enough paint on the roller. Even though it is a small patch needing lots of work, somehow it is encouraging to see paint on the hull.
