    I have a bad case of what is known in construction as 'the redass.'
    This translates loosely as being burned out and angry.
    Yes, I am whining today.

    Ah yes, the red ass. I've been out of the field for a while, but that term was in use almost daily on some jobs :)

    Got this early this week. New ammo for me. Tried shooting this morning and my first shot was a hit at 10m! Cheers!

    Happy After-birth day Jeremy!

    Today (yesterday actually) I got the NCstar mini self-cocking crossbow. Nice little toy. Needs reinforcement for the self-cocking part, but that aside it's cool. Not a serious weapon of course, though it could hurt a bit if it hits.

    Also got the cutting wheel gizmo for the Theraband.

    Found this down by the lake yesterday, and went back for it this morning. It has some small splits in the bark that may go a little deeper, not sure yet. I figured it was such a nice fork it would be worth microwaving and see how bad the splits are. I may opt to epoxy the splits if they aren't too bad.

    Edit; Forgot to mention that i looked up the wood too. Never new it was called sweetgum. My daughter used to call the bur balls "Bird's lunchboxes".

    Nice fork!

    I got 297 16mm marbles, 3 sanding sponges, a roll of soft-ish duct tape perfect for blowgun dart cones and bamboo skewers for the darts today.

    Maybe I find a nice fork for the weekend, who knows? (Maybe baba?)

    Buckshot if you ever try to split any large pieces of that wood for firewood with an axe, it would be like hitting a rubber ball with a hammer :D good work out ;)

    Nope, I refuse to crack you up. If I crack you up, I'd be guilty of racial slurs- 'cause then I'd be a cracker.

    Yes i could see that!
    It gave me a workout just sawing it a few times to get the piece I wanted.

    The little folding saw was binding very badly.

    I hope it is strong enough to pass the stress test though, it seems like it will be.

    I was at the Walmart so i searched for marbles with no luck.
    I did find some office rubber for tying bands to forks and pouches though. Blue, purple and pink were the only colors available though.

    The knife is just there because i opened the bag with it. Gotta say it is one of my favorite knives though.
