    Is the curved one a fish-eye lens?

    Yes, I just checked cause I couldn't remember... it's this:
    Tokina 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye Lens for Canon

    ...although I feel like a traitor, since I have a Nikon. It's a cool lens.

    Well, it has been quite a while since I've updated this post. I keep waiting until the house looks better, but not much is changing. The roof guy dropped off materials three weeks ago, and then vanished, and, at this point, we are pretty much out of time and definitely out of money. We have no kitchen counters or appliances installed yet, but have one shower, one bed, two bathroom sinks, and four flushing toilets (two for us, two for the dogs) so it sounds like home to us. So, we have to stop building now and get back to our real jobs...

    Hah hah!

    Well, the house is still quite undone, and we are out of time and out of money. We will have more time in the fall, but more money .... back to our bankers, A and B. Banker B says we have Banker A over a barrel, and that A will have to cough up some more cash, but it is all very uncertain. We did go over budget a bit...

    Anyway, we finally got our kitchen table... sort of... Here it is:

    It is the 40' long oaken keel of our old boat, which was destroyed by a storm in 2008. It washed ashore on an uninhabited island, and has been lodged in the rockweed ever since. We got our inflatable, Bertha going, and set out to retrieve it. We tied boat fenders onto it to help float it.

    And here it is on the beach, waiting to be picked up by a boom truck.

    We want to cut it in eight foot sections and put two of them together and polyeurethane (spelling?) it. Then we will put it on some boat stands for legs.

    We are technically living on the boat, but in reality, we are in the house, just quietly. We were using an inflatable bed, but one of the dogs popped it one night, and it started leaking. We had to get up several times a night and pump it back up again. Since my DH is heavier than I am, his side of the bed kept going down, and he would wind up on the concrete, while my side went way up in the air. Then, our biggest Newfoundland jumped on the bed in the middle and catapulted me up into the air and over to land on top of my poor husband, who was already flat on the concrete floor. So, we built a bed, and with a bed, a shower, two bathroom sinks, and four toilets (one in each bathroom, and two for the dogs water bowls) we are pretty much okay. I do wish we had a stove...
