    A bed in 2 hours-the most UNFLATTERING shot ever posted on FW

    So I got up nice and late today, and was prompted to get busy and make a bed since my daughter will be spending tonight at my home. The bed was meant for a temporary bed for a senior relative of my wife visiting for a week that we didnt want to put on an inflatable bed. We purchased a quality mattress so when I have time, I would build a nice simple bed out of some hardwood and make some matching bedroom furniture.
    And its a beautiful day, 72 degrees, and after I finished cutting and assembling, before I sanded it down a bit(no staining today, since she needs it for tonight), I took a nap, and my wife thought it was a good idea to take a shot of that. bet ned's jealous he cant get a shot of everything nasty like this., like my big fat tucus, my huge mid region, and then, to cap it all off, the entire area of my bald spot. Bravo to my wife. Thought this was too funny not to share.
    Btw, the bed will hold 2 of me, its built to last 3 lifetimes out of regular borg dimensional lumber, and if I didnt use plywood, total costs around 28.00.(not including glue or screws, screws which were recycled anyway)

    Wow...Allen is big and balding? Who knew? Good thing all the rest of us here are in perfect shape with gorgeous, full heads of hair.

    Your 2-hour bed does indeed look nice and stout. Well done. Enjoy the company.

    That pic just has to violate some CoC here at FW.
    If it doesn't, we need to write one quick.

    [Sung to the tune of the Gilligan's Island theme song]

    Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
    a tale of a fateful guest
    Who stayed with the Levines one week,
    to try and get some rest.

    The host was a mighty woodworker,
    who started seeing red
    the day his wife took a pic of him
    on his two hour bed, the two hour bed.

    The weather started getting nice,
    the temps were finally down
    so Allen put things in high gear
    b'fore the guest got to town, before she got to town.

    The bed's now sitting in the house on the middle of Long Isle
    with Al Levine...
    his family, too.
    Some other guests and their wives,
    will be coming soon for barbeque,
    and leaving with a smile.
