« Part 4: Sanding with a New Horn Part 5 of A Special Unicorn Project series Part 6: Time To Start Ironing Out The Details »

The rocker assembly is all I got done over the weekend. Friday evening and all day Saturday, my wife was off with the high school band as a chaperone along with my daughter. My older boys went camping the whole weekend. Then Sunday we had a fish fry. So I spent the weekend playing the role of superdad to my younger sons. In between all that though, I did get the rocker assembly done.
Then came the hard part, getting the unicorn on the rocker assembly. I just couldn’t get her to jump for nothing. Then I thought about it. If you pick the marshmellows out of the Lucky Charms box and put on the rocker assembly, the unicorn will jump right over.
I’m sorry. I couldn’t resist. The previous Lucky Charms joke came from me working and listening to my younger sons having a very deep discussion about what unicorn eat. The final desicion was that they eat the marshmellows from the Lucky Charms cereal box, especially the rainbow shaped ones.
Anyway, all I’m able to show you is the photo of the completed rocker assembly with the unicorn on it. With everything else going on over the weekend, I forgot to snap any photos.
It may be a day or two before you see anything else on this project. I just came back from seeing the vampires. That’s what I call the people in the lab that take my blood every few months. With some of the medications I take, they take blood and check on my liver every few months. Then tomorrow I’ve got a doctor’s appointment. So, besides maybe a little piddling around, it’ll be at least Wednesday before I really get back into the shop. See you all then.

You got me wondering if I am part unicorn, William! I think I could thrive on the marshmallows from Lucky Charms. “Magically Delicious!!!” :D

Your progress is great! It is really looking wonderful. Again, you amaze me at how quickly this is materializing, as I know you have been under duress. I hope you feel better soon and I am looking forward to the pictures of your detailing out this project. If it is anything like your other projects, we will all be in for a treat!

Take care and have a great day! Sheila
