You know you've got something right when...

... you say to your partner; "Hey, we've got the loan of a car for the day. Let's get out and do some shopping."

And she says..." I suppose we have to, but it's such a beautiful day, I wish I could just stay here and do some more varnishing..... "

The gods are smiling on me at last...

It must be true that varnish fumes do kill brains cells.

Re: You know you've got something right when...

Maybe she wants the "yacht" for herself and her friends to go on a sunset sail...and I don't see anything wrong with that! Sunset sail...wine, cheese, steel band music and looking for "sails"! <going to behave now> Mauritz

He is wondering why anyone would chose to varnish over doing ANYTHING else!

Either this lady is a boat owners dream OR you are in deep sh&t. I know if I heard that, there would be hardcore payback in my future.

Keep a weather eye...

Re: You know you've got something right when...

Oh and to you all no I'm am not after anything, and no he is not in trouble, well at the moment anyway.
I actually enjoy doing the last step of the bright work, just hate removing the old varnish, and sanding. The en result is so worth it.
And we don't have many good days to get out there and do it.
But was a bit worried myself after I said this, that I may be getting way too many of those fumes.
