Go Surf! PERIOD

Back in a previous life (active duty C2 Superintendent days) I used to drill the 1 hour meeting rule into my Commanders (the good ones who would listen--fuck the ones who wouldn't *can't fix stupid). My favourite commander ever (in 26 years) came back up here from Illinois to do my retirement ceremony. I have the video of it; at the end when we are lining up for the retirement order to be read, I looked at my watch and whispered to him "59 minutes--perfect Sir."

It's a nice memory.

Just catching up on what I missed during my fishing trip.

Good morning all.

Off to set the shelter. Dad's getting his Father's Day gift a day early. I noticed his main extension cord is getting pretty chewed up, so I bought him a 100' 12 gauge replacement. I was going to buy a 50' one until I saw that a 100' one was only $20 more. I'll use it today with the hammer drill and hang it in his truck, no wrapping or card required.

Now I just have to come up with an excuse to avoid a family trip to my FIL's house for mandatory fun. I like him, but I could pass on nearly everyone else involved. I'm sure the feeling is mutual on all counts.

My stepkids gave me a set of throwing knives last night since they're going to their dads today.
Moonshine and throwing knives. Don't know how to act.

Good Morning.

Ding, I like your style on the gift to your Dad; and most other things for that matter.

Kevin, Cool looking set of knives.

Dad reminded me I bought a new carburetor for his tiller for an early Father's Day gift, so the cord became an early birthday gift. Iirc, an extension cord is the approved gift for a 70 year old, so it all worked out. Shelter work went quick, and we beat some rain. I'd like to mow before the next round, but I already know that won't be approved. "They're waiting on us!"

Tying cords like that breaks the conductors and puts a kink memory in them , but you can't teach an old dog new tricks , my dad does the same shit

Funny you should mention that. In addition to all of the other nicks in the plenum, the old cord is split right in the middle.
