The bathrobe of Proust

Proust bought a new bathrobe that didn't go with the bathroom. So he had to redo the bathroom. But then, the bathroom didn't go with the hall....

Connemara, my Mirage 27, has a teak interior, but very little teak on deck. The topside teak, I though, needed some spiffing up, but there was no way I was goinna try to do all the teak down below.

Went off to the the boat show and bought some nice varnish, but the weather is not conducive to topside work right now in Toronto. So, thinks I, why don't I see how this works?

Unshipped a couple of hatch doors, topk them home, and did the trick with the varnish.

The problem is the results are stunning.

And now I have a whole new project for the spring.

Woe, oh Woe is me.

Too many people worry "What if it doesn't work and looks terrible."

The real problem is what if it works!

Many businesses have failed for the same reason. Better to worry about success than failure.
