    Tell them it's male bonding time.
    Then you could teach him all the cool stuff like how to spit, the pull my finger game, how to do maintenance on the truck. Maybe even take out tools and actually use them. I know I loved it when my dad or grandpaw did that with me.

    We tried to find some land with a shop when we moved here, but nothing we found was in a decent location. I had to show my wife how to identify a chicken farm on the Google map photos, most everything we found was too close to one, or near a potential meth house or family of questionable breeding. It is Arkansas. Considering someday snatching up the adjacent empty lot and combining them, building a shop and possibly a B&B rental space above it. But, for now I have the garage.

    LOL, Scary Sherrie. I'd just tell my wife (her name is Kristi as well) that they give me a headache. Because her and her sister do give me a headache. Her sister has 2 daughters as well. Talk about being outnumbered, me and the BIL vs. 6 of them. He's got a nice garage setup.

    Ok I’m in. Did you know male African ostriches are dark and guard the nest at night (aka sleep), whilst the females are more suited for camouflage during the day. You’d think this is good adaptation to protect the young...ha! The guys just figured out how to sleep all night while their wife’s watch guard.

    The committee will have to rule on your acceptance at this time.

    The coffee cup is a nice touch but the African Ostrich post was a little off.

    What's your thoughts on the Esmaraldas Woodstar?

    A reasonable decent variety, when we were in the Galapagos we spent time on the mainland as well, but mostly in the highlands so I never booked one.

    Apollo 11 is available on Primevideo.com. This is the film made from NASA footage, that hadn't seen the light of day for many years.
    Watched it on my laptop, hope to see it on a larger screen with a home theater setup; I'll have to visit a few friends.
