...my Teak Hat is on it's last legs.
In spite of weatherproofing it again this spring, there seems to have been a gap at one of the joints. Water found it's way into the joint and rotted the wood away in that critical location. I'd consider amputation, but then we'd be back to talking about a wooden mat on the floor.
Anyway, I'll be deciding how to deal with it in the days to come. I fully expect a tale worthy of The Binky to ensue.
I fully expect (and demand) that there will be gnashing of teeth, rending of garments accompanied by wailing and weeping worthy of Banshees. Please don't let me down.
