Here’s full frontal Cornell, showing an impressive growth of pudding, which

grows to very impressive and bordering on terrifying when contact gets made with the bow of a 25-foot yard tug. When I say terrifying, I mean the way a benign whale itching a scratch on the keel of a kayak would terrify.  (I love the tractor exhaust with rain cap!)

There’s puddings and then there’s

modern extruded rubber fendering of all sorts, none of which can be hand-made during idle hours. Left to right above: Patapsco, Janice Ann, HMS Liberty. (Janice Ann, your reputation extends all the way to the Netherlands.) And then

there’s Growler, a rostrum only a mother could love. Happy Mother’s Day.
