Welding. I only get to every once in a while - a gate or rail now and then - just now a table for a store, industrial look in diamond plate. A change of pace.

We played suicide:

Had to do with a tennis ball and a large tall wall of the outside of the school.

I can't recall all the rules but if you didn't catch the ball or fumbled it, you had to run to the wall and tag up before some one else grabbed the ball and whipped it at you as you were running.

That was fun!
Best recess game EVER

Re: Things I Love


I bricked my next door neighbors house a few years ago. We were working 10 hours a day then.

I'd go home and mow my yard after work, and that son of gun would come up to my house and ask why we quit early!

A lot of evenings he would be at my house when I got home. My next job was an hour from home....I was happy

This is the problem working next door. 10 hour days, 7 days a week and they still feel like you could do more because you must have extra time if you can watch Leno at night.

I love when I spend a couple hours at the office entering bills, reconciling the accounts, and entering 2 pages of general journal entries from our accountant everything matches up!!
