Nothing but the finest

Nothing but the finest

Years and years ago I thought it would be cool to have one of those fancy tub caddies. (I thought about it right after I dropped a book in the tub.) Yes, a place to rest your glass of wine and a book while relaxing in the hot water…. bliss.

But I’m cheap, so I made one.

I think this is ten years old?

Yep. Them there are some one-by-fours all chopped up and screwed together. Not even sanded, because that’s too fancy for these here parts. It’s got some no-slip carpet stuff on the sides so it won’t slide around, and an extra piece of wood screwed to the back because the dang thing kept tipping over.

For one’s wine glass or coffee mug, there is an upside-down mason jar lid screwed into the board, because I’m fancy like that.

The mug was empty.

I got it out for the cats to use as a bridge. They knocked over the mug.

That's the floaty back cushion. It sprung free of its moorings.

    Ha! I still think it’s funny how much your cats are obsessed with water.
