Fortunately mine for today is an almost stupid thing.

I started a thread called "Break in, fact or fiction?" but before I hit "submit" I thought, wait I better search this one first. So I did.

*whew*! That was a close one.

Played golf. Frustrated the hell out of myself today until the last hole where I hit a picture perfect drive, good chip onto the green and two puts for a very satisfying par.

I left the course thinking I can play this game so I will come back for another round of frustration.

On the weekend I learned that believing you can drop a football into the deck of a 20' wide fishing boat and not have it bounce out into the water, despite the boats width.... Let's just say it was my first swim of the day.

I later learned I hated my buddy who threw the same football about 200 yards at the small skiff, while it it was in full motion and landed it dead in the boat and it didn't bounce out. The hatred faded after a couple more beers but the amazement remains.

Well, I should also mention that my sense of distance might have been slightly impaired at the time. cool But it was an impressively long throw, worthy of attracting a scout's attention for sure.

Well, last night, I made blueberry ice cream. Long story short, I broke a glass sugar shaker in the process, and managed to get hot blueberry syrup all over the counter as well as on the floor. Oooh...I was SO mad! That's why I don't cook much!

Great thread concept!

As for me, nothing worth noting yet, but the day is young.

Today?

For the last 8 days I have been redoing my porch in flagstone...before I started, I thought it was a great idea. I finally got the last stones cut, fitted and cemented down to the porch yesterday. Today I have been applying a grout release, and am now waiting for that to penetrate the stone so I can begin grouting. This grouting ain't gonna be fun. I thought tiling and grouting the kitchen was a big job, but....
