    Ok, this will sound rediculous... Is it just me that feels a great satisfaction when you pick the perfect sized container for leftovers?

    Was dutifully going over commission statements for work when I get a text from the neighbors about a job for me. I go over and 2 Can Jan and shirtless mike are there and there was a bee nest up in the maple tree. There were beers involved (not real beer they were Coors Light) The 410 was not effective 4 shot, was going to grab the judge when it dawned on me. I still had a Rage titanium to screw on a pile driver. I tore one side of the nest open and clipped a branch the nest came down after bouncing off branches all the way down just burned it up after dark with the drip torch. Thing is the neighbors now think I am some super shot with a bow, I didn't tell them I have to walk half way down the range to see where my arrow hit a target. Some days better to be lucky than good.

    I don't smoke, gambling, eat edibles, or even over eat. But I turned 42 today and a couple friends showed up unannounced and we had a few cocktails and just talked about life. Best day in a long time. Close relationships are what life is about

    42 oh just wait. Also my own mother would not show up unannounced without calling, then again I have a quirk or two.

    if by perfect sized you mean microwave safe in about 3 hours, then yes.

    there is nothing more telling about man than being truly happy for a friend.
    Especially when that friend sounds hot and awesome and not with said man.

    Good on you, brother.

    actually, by Brett's description she sounds more like Awkwafina, only not a liberal vapid Tuesday, Wednesday, And Thursday; but cool.

    The look on my daughters face when I dropped off my old hunting buggy that I had reconditioned for her to use on their mini farm :)
    She had that hell yeah grin ear to ear. And I got the best hug ever!

    It's called ocd. No worries though. Some of the most brilliant/crazy amongst us experience it.

    Not sure I'd call it Ocd. Just a tiny life victory...that is disproportionately rewarding to me.

    My brother had Ocd...really focused on sanitization and health issues. It paralyzes him at times. We went to a restaurant, he left to use the restroom... Not back in 10 minutes so I go to check on him...they had no towels in the rest room and he won't touch restroom door handles... Nobody was headed into the restroom and he was just standing there... Stuck.

    Better to stand for something and be in danger than live your life a coward.

    Thing is he is not in danger for long Iran will kill him. Hardly worth a silver medal.

    Some palestinians and Israelis would probably disagree with that
