Re: Things I Love (2)


I love fighting my way out of a corner.

Been thinking about the finish of this project for a while and whenever I have a weekend separating me and a finish, I really dive deep into hemming and hawing over it. I perform the task multiple times in my own head, countersinking the screws, filling the holes, everything. I do it over and over and over and over until I finally get to work on Monday.
Well, the last two days went great and I finally feel like I'm out from under the rock for the most part.

I love that feeling.

Mild climate in winter here. Being retired in the winter here is a big difference than working in the winter.

Don't care. Shorts are more important when I'm working. We more than likely will be purchasing a second home in Sedona area for the winter. Also we plan on traveling.......a lot.

Nice steakhouse in Boise. Ribeye comes on an 800 degree rock. With a side of wild mushrooms. They serve it slightly undercooked because it continues to cook as you eat it. You can literally cook the first few bites as you cut it.

Looks huge... how many ounces is that?

Adding the stone, unless they've got "beefy" women serving who can carry that all night, there's a W/C claim just waiting to happen...

Probably all dude waiters, that’s all we have in MI, going to a restaurant nowadays is a total sausage fest. If you were a male waiter when I was a kid it meant you were a little fruity.
