Thoguth you might enjoy this story:
Sunday morning it rained, so I wasn’t out farming. I sat in my favorite recliner flipping through the channels – Not much on. I paused at a show on H&G where they a man and a woman were framing a small garden shed. It wasn’t too exciting, so I was probably only about half awake.
About the time they laid out the walls, my 11 year old Son walked in and sat down. The guy on TV picked up a cordless drill and started drilling pilot holes in the plates and studs. The woman was coming behind and hand nailing them together with 16D nails.
I woke with a start when my Son said “OH MY GOD – THEY’RE PRE-DRILLING FOR NAILS!!!” I about rolled out of the recliner laughing.
DW already thinks I shouldn’t watch shows like this – She says all I do is sit there and make fun of what they’re doing. I figure it won’t be long until my Son gets banned from home improvement shows too………………(-:
Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. — Ronald Reagan (1986)
