Fishing With The Boy & Constructing A Cheap Sun Chair
He was also a bit nervous about sticking his thumb in the fishes mouth but after a bit of schooling in how to properly hold a bass he gave it a try and luckily all the bass behaved.
Over all it was a good hour with the boy before we headed back home for some homemade pizza. I am sure it is yet another day at the pond that he will remember for quite a while.
Before we went fishing however I had a good few hours to mess around in the garage with a spur of the moment idea while walking the isles of my local hardware store. Originally I had gone there to get a chimney sweep so I can clean out the fireplace and save myself over $230. $230!!! No thanks, I'll stick to my cheap Dutch roots and do it myself. I hate going on my roof for anything but for $230 I'm not blinking an eye.
I actually found the idea for the chair on an advertisement for Delta. It was a background piece of furniture on a travel banner but it looked so easy to make that I thought it would be an quick project to get me back in the garage and out of the house. Happily it was nearly as easy as I had hoped and even though I will make a few changes to the design in the next chair, it was simple and more importantly - Cheap!
