In the trail of Diogenes

Seeing my feathered friends here frantically busy fighting over women, nest venues, laying eggs, defending them against other birds who want to feed them to their young, I remember what Diogenes did when Korinth got the news that an attack on the town was about. While the entire town population went digging trenches, fortifying the walls en getting food in town, he started rolling his ceramic jar house up and down a slope. His friends explained that this was "not to seem idle while others were working so hard". And this Diogenes always was, is, and will be forever my ultimate role model.

My cutwater, preventing bow drift of the platform, had broken off last year. Time to mend.

... While waiting for my turn this one got launched over (!) mine ...  


... gladly accepted the offer of a free bottom cleaning ...


... my cutwater broke off, now Jobbe welded bigger fixing bars and I screwed them on ...


... varnish varnish varnish ...


... this grey shit is a totally new and unique system for round wood support in the design of which Pieter Bleeker made an important improvement. It will be patented as the "Bleeker-assymmetric ruther hinge twelve foot dinghy boom crutch" ... It will be on display at Lac de Setton 8-12 July 12footdinghy event. The French name is: "béquille de bome au système de suspension du gouvernail Blékèr-assymmétrique"


... the crutch in full operation ...


... tent too short, new tent required ...


... this new double crutch for my saxophones is obtained from the established market ...


... I made rowlocks on this tupperware ...


... and I started catching crayfish ...

In recent years local crayfish almost disappeared in competition with several foreign ones that even threaten fish by eating all water plants. The foreign ones mix and make new successful variants. It is called a plague. Well, humans are a plague as well, I never told you I was against plagues!


... the new river canoe rental season already produced an incident so I chain-closed the harbour ...


... a tow hook now welded in front of the microcamper ...


... new front tow hook in operation ...

Finally:

Working on my second Musil booklet dealing with the orginal Der Mann ohne Eigenschaften starting chapter 75. Dutch version almost finished. The compression percentage increases, Musil is simply saying too many important things that should all be told. More.

I am preparing to transfer all computer operations from MS Windows to Linux, for the standard reasons all other people have who do so.
