In my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm featuring a different Spanish word each day during April as part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I'm also sharing the random thoughts that pop into my head when I try to pronounce them.

Today's Spanish word is >>lijar<< (to sand). And now for some random thoughts:
1 - One of the things boat owners dread is sanding the bottom of their boat before reapplying anti-foul paint (a magical potion which keeps barnacles and the like from growing on the bottom). It's not exactly a fun job, especially when it's sweltering outside and you're wearing protective gear.
2 - The last time we did our bottom paint, I tried sanding the rudder. The electric sander weighs a ton and the vibration your hands is unbelievable. Fortunately, Scott came to the rescue and finished the job.
3 - This is a picture of our boat after we bought her - you can see the blue paint which has to be sanded down before you can put on anti-foul paint.
4 - Anti-foul paint is insanely expensive. The stuff on our boat costs around $300 a gallon.
Have you ever used an electric sander? What's your favorite word that starts with "L"?
