That's awesome. I was handing Dad wrenches and knew the difference between metric and standard at 4yo. There is never a "too early" for those skills.

I don't think I'd have owned up, on Socnet of all places--that I had to willing whack-a-mole with a huge brick...they don't really have legs and they're blind, just stomp'm... Be a real man next time.

He ran under the shed. I got him while he was on the run. It was glorious. Don't try and take that away from me.

I had a Rat Terrier for 13 yrs. She would put her ear to the ground like a Robin listening for a worm and dig the little bastards up. All rodents for that matter.

Working all morning and afternoon to set up and then take down gear for the church picnic and Mass. Daughter worked alongside all day.

Made even better but the gift of 12 pounds of absolutely delicious pulled pork from the Phil's BBQ that's mentioned several times in Forschen's One Second and One Year After.

Followed up by a nap and then mowing the grass on my 44 year old JD 140. Almost as sweet a ride as one of KidA's scooters.

Sweet day all around.

Got my Simplicity Lawn tractor working again. Love having a 50" mower deck on a 4x4 lawn tractor.

Worked all week to chase down electrical gremlins and finally got it to start and run.

Now, I'm working on rebuilding my front axle of my landcruiser. I'm hoping that it will be finished soon.

Taking it to the taxidermy and mounting it on the "man-cave" wall?

Breaded and pan-fried. Drizzled with a chipotle aioli.

Listening to Prince Harry talk about the Invictus Games. The man walks the walk and is a brother to the core.

I have no clue what that means. But no, i know next to nothing about car repairs, and i had to get the head gasket fixed. I've dealt with this with my previous vehicle but again, i'm not a mechanic.

Scrolling through this thread and reading some of your funny ass posts, laughing my ass of in public at the mental picture of the mole and the brick. And the follow up by Mingo. You folks are all funny as hell.
