Had outpatient sinus surgery yesterday. Taking today off work.
Yeah, that sounds uncomfortable. I'm gonna call this a fail.

I hope everything is okay, bud.
Everything is going fine so far. No pain meds needed (even though I was given prescriptions).

Eating left over office birthday cake from a co-workers birthday, a square piece about 6"x6". Why? Because it is chocolate and if I don't do it it will be thrown out at the end of the day. I'm no quitter.
Preventing cake from being thrown out is just good stewardship.

Went to the Tinderbox in Mobile. Was alone in the humidor and let one out. Turns out, I was not alone :mermaid:

Thanks to a friend I am watching the Critérium du Dauphiné once again this year and today's stage six has been excellent.

I'm helping some friends design and build out the interior of their new consignment shop. They're going for a vintage-casual-industrial vibe. It's nice to spend other peoples money and not have to be super particular with my carpentry. I think were going to do a concrete counter top. I've never done that and I'm excited to figure it out.

PSA: check the field for debris before using the riding mower. A come-a-long does not play nicely with mower blades.

Hello FredS
Sorry, man. I've run over just about everything in my time with the brush hog, but I've never hit a come-along. I'd imagine that's the devil of a time removing the remains, let alone repairing.

We will find out tomorrow. I used the push mower and field trimmer to get the back half acre done.
