Love the return to these long-form, step-by-step videos. Any reason you ordered the glass BEFORE you assembled the frame and cut the rabbets. I’d think you want to do that the other way around, getting the glass panel cut to fit the finished opening, rather than trying to cut what could turn out to be odd-sized rabbets to fit the pre-cut panel. (Also it would avoid having to store a delicate mirror in my shop during the build, where I’m sure something would conspire to break it before I finished the project.
I’d felt like the plane had been in taxi for years. I sighed hot breath onto the window and traced smiley faces with ‘x’s for eyes with my pinky finger. My phone sat illuminated on my thigh with dozens of texts from my sister, Willie, asking if I’d made the flight on time and if I wasn’t upset that Mitch was picking me up instead of her and if I had enough to eat that day. I pressed my cheek to the cold window to try to relieve myself from the clutching feeling in my chest from the humid, pressurized air. Willie told me that he was doing well and his wife was expecting a baby, she then asked if I had managed to win Margaret back yet. I started to compose a message to Margaret, asking her if she’d consider hearing me out once I got back from Savannah, but a flight attendant with bright pink lips and hot-rolled golden hair walked by and said in a sweet Georgia accent: “Hon,... Every night since the day Willie called to tell me she’d died I watched her gentle frame be blown away in the wind like dust. ” I would try to cover my ears and eyes, but was paralyzed as her thin, raisin-colored lips and hazel eyes dissolved into a hot Savannah breeze. Once I saw him, a feeling of doom washed over me. My chest felt like I hadn’t even disembarked the plane.
The alien, of course, was not an alien, but a diminutive older gent in a tweed jacket over what appeared to be a shirt adorned with a glow-in-the dark UFO. He was distinctly disheveled, and Officer Apricot Dorrit could not tell if that was his general state of being, or if it was a result of his tousle with the blond detective. Officer Dorrit had responded to the scene at the zoo in record time, and had been less surprised than one might think to find a man in an absurd star-spangled waistcoat restraining a wild-eyed senior citizen with coke-bottle glasses, while a third... Apricot was familiar with Tewksbury and Forbes, PIs. “And that-“ George Tewksbury was gesturing wildly as he related the evenings events to Apricot in an interrogation room back at the police station, “is when I dashed out and apprehended the scoundrel. Forbes had not seemed to be paying an overabundant amount of attention to his partner’s story, but was rather peering behind Officer Dorrit, with an odd sort of trepidation and determination, through the one-way mirror affixed to the far wall at... Apricot knew that, just perhaps, he couldn’t. Because no one else in the small Bards Head PD had the patience to deal with Tewksbury and Forbes, nor the wherewithal to sort through their nonsense.
