It's more of a space/less stuff for the kids to get into issue.

Get them some shovels.  Aren't they about the age for chores yet?

Not yet, that would be more work at this point. And less toys.

Truth!  But don't count on that getting better.

I'm smiling to have reentered the 19th century: running water and working drains in my laundry and kitchen.  It has been a miserable couple of weeks.  Next chore is to try to find tile and a workman to repair the floors.  We still hope we can repair instead of replace it.    Couple of leads on tile and I have ordered samples.   Which brings me to a peeve: why are samples so expensive?   Not a budget buster, but a single 4x8 quarry tile is about $8 when we can get a 10 sq ft case for $30.

Nope, I am not.  I would probably either go battery powered or Walt powered shovel, TBH.

I'm such a big fan of battery powered devices like this. I had a battery powered mower as well and absolutely loved it. No gas, no oil, no spark plugs, no fumes, much less noise, light weight.

My battery-powered weed-eater may not be especially powerful, but not having to mix oil/gas is so worth it.  Battery-powered hedge trimmer is nice as well.

Yep, all of that. Especially if you spend the money for a good one. I love the Ego line. I have purposely tried to bog down my mower, and I can't do it.

Try your local hardware store. There are several premixed synthetic fuels. These were recommended to me the last time I had my snowblower repaired, as well as weed trimmer. The reasoning is that, at least in Michigan, regular fuel has too much ethanol and gums up the carburetor. It's a lot easier than trying to mix. Seems to get better "milage" as well, at least on the snowblower last year.

Good looking out.

I'm invested in the other hardware, though.

Peanut curry with beef and noodles at the local Thai Restaurant....just spicy enough to make my head sweat but not inflame my mouth.

I could not find one I do not agree with...the only exception to your list is that from 2 fast and 2 furious it is not the song that makes it for me, but the car.  Love me a skyline.

The Pistons vs Nuggets c 1983....highest scoring game ever, 3 OT (the game is free on youtube)....Isaiah jam tipped an intentional FT miss by Laimbeer at the end of regulation over Danny Schayes to send it to 1st OT...I love early/mid 80s NBA...it was really gritty and had the younger legends like Isaiah, Magic, Bird, Jordan, etc.

Also, when I think of competitive fire on the court, Isaiah is the ultimate yardstick for me...he was such an insane competitor and talent....he was electrifying.  

In terms of intensity, the combination of Isaiah, Billy (and Dennis) was unbelievable.

Classical mechanics exam this past week, class average was 46%, your boy, TP, set the curve with an 80%.  Makes the week a little easier.

Franken Caliendo is so good at impersonating ESPN personalities.  Truly hilarious.

Saw "Abbott and Costello meet Frankenstein" at a local renovated movie theater, prefaced with an organ player treating us to spooky music, as well as theme songs such as The aAddams Family, The Munsters, etc.  

Just a lot of fun.  Gotta love Lou Costello.

Love Halloween.  Annual party tonight.  The Boss and I are going as usual, not defending our costume win cause we took last year off (won the two years before).  We will be Morticia and Gomez Addams along with Uncle Fester (dead and in a casket but with a light bulb that lights), some cut off roses, Wednesday's headless doll, and or course, Thing, in his box.  DJ, Karaoke, adult beverages, and a bunch of fun.  Trick or Treat is tomorrow here in Cornhole.
