    “Hey Dad, I want to use my lawn mowing money to build a garden.” And that is how this hard working boy gave us some quality time on a fun weekend project. We went to Home Depot, bought lumber and soil and built a 2’ x 4’ raised bed. He drilled, he leveled the ground, he filled in the soil and he planted peppers and tomatoes. I am really hoping this pays off for him. I love this kid’s work ethic and courage to try new things.

    My middle son decided to try gardening on a smaller scale as well with the pot.

    Wait you want us to believe that you went to home depot and they actually had the lumber the project requires and then after all that you had enough $ to afford the lumber?:biggrin:

    I didn't pay for the lumber, my son did with the money he earned mowing lawns. I just paid for the gas in my jeep to get there. That kid also eats me out of house and home. I cannot afford the materials for something like this. :lmao2:

    Received this lovely message from my boss this morning: "How is everyone feeling about the decision to have our group be remote permanently?"

    We are already doing 3-4 gallons of milk per week because my three-year-old refuses to drink anything else. I quit drinking milk several years ago. Never made sense to me to drink the breast milk of another species when I quit drinking my mother's milk as an infant.

    My boy played through high school. It's been 4 years and the wife and I are still going through withdrawls! Need to take in a game or two each spring.

    I eat oatmeal and an omelet, pancakes and eggs on the weekend. I grew up on cereal in boxes for 18 years. I cannot stand that crap now. That, and Teriyaki Chicken, ate way too much of both as a kid.

    Although rum and OJ doesn't sound like a bad way to start the day.
