27 November 2019: The Red Telephone
As I continue with Electric Chair #1 I have needed to identify the small details and the timeline.
One of the small details that is required is a red telephone. If there is to be a ‘pardon’ the executioner needs to be able to be communicated with.
Spoiler Alert: In this particular case the Red Telephone is going to ring after the execution. Too bad, so sad.
I’ve also got 1/2 of the shake mechanism created. I think it’s going to work well. And a side benefit is that the shake mechanism is going to be able to be used to ring the Red Telephone.
Initially I thought that I was going to need to purchase a small telephone…however by using my drill press as a wood lathe I was able to create a reasonable little phone. Now I need to paint it red and then weather it. And it needs a cord.
Thanksgiving is tomorrow. A fake holiday…but if you can get around it’s fakeness and focus instead on being thankful for what we do have I know that I have a lot to be thankful for…and I am. I’m very grateful for the life that I am able to lead.
