spare time

Saturday …
the time needed
4 spare-time

. . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem | commentary is the communists' icky concept of 'Saturdaying.'

The picture is of the Coronado Boathouse (1887), which becomes much more amusing when you know it was built as a dry run for the Hotel Del.  Put together a hotel architect who specialized in trestle bridges and a work crew of 300 Chinese, brought down on the paddlewheeler from SF, with no interpreter, and you can see why they wanted to make sure they could actually DO this. The boathouse contains every architectural feature of the hotel.
