Picture of the Day
April 13, 2021

Today started as a vast improvement on yesterday, sun so bright I went shirtless and seared my skin pink, set up shop outside on Petty's Island, Philly skyline in the distance, sistered 16-foot 4x4s to make stout posts for Gateway Park build, overkill if you ask me but who am I to question the structural engineers who signed off on it? Everything was fine until the clutch pedal went wonky on the way home, barely made it back to parking garage after stalling out repeatedly in city traffic. There's more to this project than its mechanics, but for now my focus is pretty narrow and close. But isn't that always the case--the end result is magic, but behind the scenes it's nuts and bolts, in this case more literal than most.
