Command in the Galley.
Posted late due to ongoing bandwidth issues.
It all started a couple weeks back
when I bought my latest holiday decor for the galley. I mentioned
that in the
Spring on Pi Day (copper advice)
article. My Easter towel included a matching potholder. Well, I
do not normally use them but it is pretty and I wanted to show it off
a bit too.
Boats simply do not have much
bulkhead (aka wall)
space, and I am a nut for putting things away. I did not want to hide
my Happy Easter bunny potholder so needed a solution.
For the most part I live without
media influences. I do not know about stuff advertised on
television because I have not owned one since 1993. One day I will
share with you how that came about...
Those of you with cable TV
probably know all about Command products. I did not until recently.
Part of the fun of shopping is
actually looking at products and reading the blurbs on the packages.
Last year I discovered a 3M line that suits my lifestyle and budget.
Hooks in the Galley
Best of all, the Commands
are idiot-proof. You may wonder how I can state such a thing
unequivocally. That is because I almost messed 'em up!

two tabs of backing paper. The one has red, and the other is
black. Well the black side is clearly marked Wall Side.
wiped off the
bulkhead, then attach the hook to the red side after
removing backing paper. A minute later it is ready for use.
is not. I am supposed to
wait overnight for full adhesion.
Side Note regarding Command products: The
upper right corner of each item tells you a weight it can
support. I have used the Velcro light weight strips for a
ceramic picture frame in my cabin with success. Just size the
product to your needs and you will be all set.
Circa spring 2015, the
light weight ones are $2 to $3 and the larger heavier ones run
$4 or so per package. I've found the in discount stores
(Dollar General) and remember seeing them in Walmart too.
I am glad I have
Command products aboard Seaweed.
Right now is the season for popcorn and movies. Sometimes eating right out of the
pan is okay too, especially when it is an excellent DVD. Let company
be aboard and
the bowls come out for good manners. But when alone? Well, I am not admitting 'nuttin.
Still, a potholder will work in
lieu of a trivet and the popcorn pan cannot sit on the dinette table
when I'm watching a movie, or a series. I just finished watching the
Dinotopia and can recommend it highly. I loved it...
That's an affiliate link but
definitely read the blurbs about the show. If you like steam punk,
Jules Verne, Professor Lupin of Harry Potter fame, and a wonderful
librarian dinosaur named Zippo, well, this is a just a great movie. I
old sci-fi fan (pre-1950's) and loved the DVD. I will be excite to watch
Dinotopia (TV Miniseries) again.
It is just that there

I love having the ability to read
at will whenever I wish any number of books. It is one of my biggest
pleasures in life afloat. Now I cannot imagine life without a
-- nor do I wish to do so. I truly am blessed.
Anyway, were I to not put my popcorn
in a bowl, I would definitely use the Easter potholder in lieu of a
trivet. Mine is on the bulkhead right behind the stove and is
convenient. Plus this is festive.
To you and yours, I wish you a
happy Easter. Keep safe and remember to be thankful for all we do
have. We truly are blessed. After all, we get a free trip around the
sun each year.
Do you decorate for Easter?
Anything special planned for dinner? I haven't decided what to fix yet.
