Trey's Mom is so awesome and bought us foam for the cushions yesterday. She knew of a fabric store in South Western NC that has good prices on foam and was able to get all of it for under $100. It counts as Trey's birthday present, and mine! Sweet! So tonight she is coming up to drop it off and upholster the bench seat with me, because she has an air stapler. She has some denim fabric we may use for the bench seat... it may not match perfectly but they make fabric paint for that reason. I will probably end up drawing designs all over it. We shall see!
I'm desperately trying to keep my mind off of what is going on in the Gulf right now. I am so angry, outrages, and desperate to stop the oil spill. Our dependence on oil is sickening and needs to stop. But no one is doing anything to stop it. If the spill goes on until August, the entire ocean is going to be polluted with oil. No more seafood, no more marine life, just think of it. It makes me want to cry. I love the Ocean, and recently decided not to go to school for Marine Biology. Maybe its because I knew deep down something like this would happen... I wish there was something I could do to make this insanity stop. Clean energy is a concept that has been around way longer than I have been. Pick up an old copy of a science magazine in your thrift shop. 1980? Sounds about right: lots and lots of articles on clean energy... Where did this technology go? In the pockets of huge CEOs of oil companies that's where. We've been enslaved by oil. Isn't it time to break free?
