Giving Up All My Yesterdays For All My Tomorrows
Life is going well. I'm still in love with the house. That being said I'm very particular about my the environment in which I live so there are still a ton of things I'm not happy about and want to fix. We're getting a dog sometime in December, a boxer which is exciting but I'm still pretty darn worried about messing the dog up even though I know we'll do a great job.

In less than a year I've gone from living alone in a small house in Woonsocket to living with Amanda in Warwick in a huge (to me) house, being a landlord and soon I'll be living with a dog. I've got a huge mortgage now and even though I've gone over it a million times and the budget is solid and pretty easy it's still kind of daunting.

Overwhelming is the word but it's OK. It's what I want.

I thought of perhaps the greatest hobby I've every thought up although is completely impractical and probably impossible. Making molds of religious statues on church grounds under the cover of darkness and building full size replicas out of concrete in my backyard.

We're getting the dog in February. She'll be born in December. :)

I have an idea to make it possible, though probably still not all that practical:

I made a ghost of Gumby once.


You wrap the model (in this case a big stuffed Gumby) in saran wrap. Then completely cover the Saran wrap with clear cellophane tape. Cut the tape/Saran Wrap and peel it off the model. Seal the incision with more packing tape.

It'll give you a mold of Jesus. You can keep the mold as it is, or actually use it somehow to fashion a real mold into which you can pour concrete.

Doesn't address the issue of how to not look creepy and conspicuous fussin' around the church grounds at night, but we can work that one out as we go along.

Awesome idea! I do wonder what a church would do if they found a second one of their statues next to the first. (and if it stays around for two months, a third one, etc.)
