But hey, that’s not the big news! The previous easel is being transitioned into semi-retirement. Say hello to Godzilla on Wheels.
You see the problem with the previous easel.
I have probably overcorrected. But I tell myself that if I redecorate it could be a room divider, or if I get a pole I can use it as a vehicle and punt through my subdivision if it gets icy.
