That is actually funny, Dave.
Last time I spoke with Keith he indicated that a mental health break
from the Wreck was in order.
I was in agreement with him.
The Wreck has gotten more coarse and less interesting over the last
The people who used to make it fun have pulled back.
I was real happy to see Bridger's post today about the problem of
hiding the plasma screen. It was more like some of the more
interesting threads of old. An interesting problem.

I need to update, but been too busy, and I've got that house "locked out"
while the hardwood floors guys do their 'thang'. However, that circumstance
finally gave me time yesterday to do the kind of small, finished-in-a-day,
project that refreshes.
A dear old friend had asked me a couple of months back about repairing her
metal newspaper recycling holder ... instead I made her a wooden one out of
maple scraps from those kitchen drawers and presented it to her in the
afternoon ... the gratitude, along with a big hug, was more than ample
Started with just a dim idea and winged it totally, from the dovetail sides,
to the last minute decision to fire up the HVLP sprayer and clear shellac it
... IKEA would have been proud, but I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the
Here lately it's been those projects that require little or no planning, and
that you can see/deliver the results in a day, that are the most enjoyable
Good luck on that shower ...
There is a lot of joy to be found in spontaneity, and in small things that
exceed the expectations of folks around us.
My wife just said something from the other room, as I read your message.
"I don't see where you're going to get much more done on that shower before
you have to leave for Chicago." It is good to be understood, and
implicitly forgiven for not being Superman.
Yesterday's good fortune: In running an errand with the wife, I found a
previously unknown to me hardwood flooring dealer in the next town over,
hiding back in an industrial park. While she did her thing next door, I
walked in, and visited with the fellow. There was some really sweet,
mellow blues playing on the sound system. The owner plays blues guitar for
his fun, and sells professional grade flooring products as his day gig. It
was great to make a friend!
