My COVID Project

We were stuck inside with not much to do. In order to go outside or be in public you had to wear a mask. Where we used to visit friends, family and travel on the weekends, we now were told to “stay the blazes home”. I thought I should have a hobby to keep myself occupied on the weekends. So, I decided to build a boat in our driveway.
