Marc is really coming along with the garage project. He thinks it will be completed this fall.
The upper vertical pieces of wood are pallet wood, which he has planed and cut to size. The lower horizontal boards are barn boards from my old collapsed barn at the NS farm.
My most frequently consumed "candy" is a handful of these. I try not to keep candy in the house since it is too tempting.
I went around the house and yard looking for latches. There really aren't any. Instead, I give you some barnacles who are latched onto sandstone. Barnacles will latch onto many surfaces - boats, rocks, shells, and anything else that gives them a spot where they can feed. The water snail isn't latched onto the rock like the barnacles - not sure if that one is an actual snail or it may be a snail shell that is inhabited by a hermit crab. You can see the older barnacles are a sort of yellowish-green colour - probably they have a bit of algae on them - and they are much larger than the younger ones.
Here's another interesting bit of latching - this water snail shell has developed a "hairstyle" of some kind of seaweed which has latched on to the shell and grown a little forest of white. This snail was still living in the shell so I suppose the seaweed doesn't do it any harm.
