Stanley is on a grand adventure this weekend with the Crafty Lady and family. Today they went to a local brewery for a tour and many Stanley-sized beers.

The beautiful claw-foot tub is finally plumbed with lovely chrome lines, no leaks, holds copious amounts of water like a champ, and looks like it just came off the assembly line. Everything sounds too good to be true right? Right. The Guy runs downstairs to check one last thing and discovers that the drain popped loose during the test run and a few of the celebratory gallons hit the laundry room floor. For all of the things that could have gone wrong. I’ll take it! Quick and painless fix and the floor could use another mopping anyhow!

Stanley received notification yesterday afternoon that the Stanley’s Travels blog turned 2 years old! In celebration (and by no means coincidentally) the Crafty Couple took Stanley to see Riddick. Which was amazing. And just FYI- goldfish get in free!

The Crafty Couple went out with their preservationist neighbors to tube on the local creek! Stanley volunteered to watch the gear at the car (but took a before and after photo) due to his unfortunate lack of buoyancy.

Oi. The Crafty Lady has had a very long 24 hours. The Crafty Pop is having some heart issues and its involving some hospital stays, one helicopter ride, a surgery, and a whole lot of recovery. So far so good though. Spirits and outlooks are pretty good so far.

Stanley would like to say that he helped the Crafty Couple by demo-ing the kitchen. Yes. That’s it.

Stanley and the Crafty Lady are being quite cultural today. They are reporting to you from a lecture on Paleoethnobotany. Yes, that is a real thing. And yes, it is actually quite interesting.
