It was a gorgeous day today between morning and afternoon. Sunny, mid-70s, nice breeze. I got to ride my motorcycle a little despite having nowhere to go. When I got back, I noticed the crocuses were open. They'd had buds for at least a few days, but this was the first they were open.

hey, all, I'll send you my triple AAA personality type father in law for free-----he got so frustrated with spending every weekend trying to repair his mower (and he was a mechanical engineer and could repair anything and he was proud of boasting that "can't do it" wasn't in his vocab) that after 6 weeks of frustrating, expensive repairs and the darn thing still wouldn't work .....he was so mad that he took a hammer to the mower and beat the innards out of it.......he said it was the best feeling ever.......

That's so funny! It's true that there's a special feeling when you beat the heck out of something that has caused you grief. (Inanimate, of course.) All my friends know that if they have some demolition to be done, call me. I love it. It's like therapy! Just this week, my girlfriend and I tore out a wall and counter she's been wanting to remove. I feel great!!!!

I wished that he had known you, Fisher's Mom.........I have thrown uncooperative pie dough across the room and that was the best feeling ever as it plopped down after hitting the wall in a limp heap on the floor

P.S. I guess you really weren't "gone" for long--but I hadn't noticed any of your posts! I have been in and out so much!
I don't get a chance to really be on here except on Sundays. Every once in a while during the week, I will pop in real quick to see what's going on. This job is the pits.
