  • Test of will power

    Spending the day in Sioux Falls, SD today with my wife babysitting our 4 month old grandson. I have a hard time sitting still this long so I hit stores that we don't have where I live. Here is my brag - I spent probably an hour in Home Depot and another hour in Menards and never spent a penny on myself. Now that takes will power.

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

          I hope your wife really needs and enjoys that Ryobi router, tablesaw, and cordless drill set you bought for her

            That's not will power. That's just unnatural.

                I noticed he had been MIA here in the forums (both here and in the Village) and he hadn’t replied to a tag on a FB page so I was worried he might unfortunately be sick. I am sorry to hear that he has been and that it was Covid and that he was hospitalized. I had been worried this might be the case....
