Mrs Hov and I just finished watching Hamilton on the TV :D
We watched it as a family last night.
Never knew he was black
We've been watching Warrior Nun... as silly as it sounds the storyline gets intriguing (and the fictional universe to figure out).

I've been keeping up in the $600 date with my bride thread and have been astonished that there's been no winks nor nudges.

Top right.
A back saw or a general hand saw?
If just a hand saw look at used ones.
Pre- Porter buy out Disstons are the best! :chili:
I find 'em for two to five bucks at junk shops.
Any good saw shop can reset the teeth if needed.
Not that I care

Ebay could probably provide you with a good "vintage" backsaw/handsaw/tenon saw/whatever. If you don't have a sharpening place nearby, you could set the teeth and sharpen it yourself using YouTube tutorials.

That being said, I prefer Japanese handsaws over their Western counterparts.

Check out a Habitat for Humanity Restore is there's one in your 'hood.
Disstons are worth the search. Nicholson's aren't bad either. but Disstons, man, they are a pleasure to use!

Have been unable to get out of bed today. Extraordinarily listless and weak like little girl.

Actually, not weak like little girl. Little girls are outside screaming blue murder.

Weaker than little girl. :D

I went on a blind date once and the girl picked the most expensive resteraunt in town. The bill was almost $100. Never saw her again.

Kanye West has declared that he is running for President.
On Twitter. (I thought he was Trump’s friend.)

Elon Musk Has announced his support of West’s presidential bid.
On Twitter. (From Mars?)

I know I must be dreaming all of this, but it seems so real.
Too much pizza last night? (I hope.)

Just came back from visiting George and Barbara Bush's gravesite. Less than a mile from our apartment.
