The theme of October and November is treachery. Being the recipient of treachery it turns out, is very time consuming and sleep-disturbing.

insert music here
Cue the Twilight Zone theme.

(November 20) Not everything you get in your firewood is actually firewood. And what do you do with a year’s worth of it? You chip it into mulch.

genus shitwood
Not feeling chipper about this chipping.

First mission in a new house… cooking.

olive oyl
It stole Popeye’s heart.

And into October, my last month in Brooklyn for now…

steel drums
This guy wasn’t annoying. That’s pretty good praise in regard to subway musicians. In theory some entertainment down there should be a good thing, but really, it’s not.

I’d been thinking about him again a lot, due to my impending move.

It really was been all about him for a long time.

zombie sign
This does not constitute proof that crazy sign person is not in fact, a zombie

smith st.
Smith St. and I go way back. I used to pick up shampoo for my boss at the salon 2 doors down back in another life.

yay for terrorist threat alerts
Since the subway system has been crawling with cops, it didn’t surprise me to see the mystery machine turned on at Union Square. I gather it sniffs the air for something, but that’s about all I know.

walnut log
Then back out to the sawmill for a day to turn this walnut log into boards

trimming or art?
This reminds me of this

walnut boards
Unfortunately a big part of the log had been ruined by carpenter ants

I finally got a good shot here on a swing through Park Slope.

Closing out September…

Lord Landon’s people put a strange crown atop his head

one serious chainsaw
Then it was out to Port Jefferson

The control panel of a tardis?

how trees become boards
No, it’s Pete’s sawmill

The hydraulics push and prod the log into place


milled wood
Sliced into boards

milling wood
And sliced some more

there was no money in it, probably
Then I went home and past crazy sign person, who’s at it again.
