Started a new toy

My neighbors cut some trees down and removed some brush . I seen this fork in the pile brush and I think it will make a pretty nice catapult when it drys out which won't take long in this Tx sun . I put this together fast temporary to see if I would like and I like it ..

I cut the band tie grooves , sanded it and put some clear on it . This is the natural color no stain . I shot it yesterday before painting and this is the way I designed it and the way I will hold it to shoot .

Nice that you donated one of yours for it.......

Truck drivers have a trick for making the "lot lizards" (ladies of the night) leave them alone so they can get some sleep in the truck. They have the biggest, fanciest bra they can find, and leave it on the dashboard. Sort of an "Already Occupied" sign.
