Header

Is that header mooning the house?

There are carps I watch and feel confident in their ability and will walk near set pieces they are working on because they know what they’re doing.

There are others that make me wish I was on the other side of the world watching them work via a webcam so when things go wrong I’m safely away from the danger . Probably sitting on a comfortable chair watching tv and drinking coffee.

Nearly a half hour of prying, unscrewing and beating on it the header finally gave way and flew out of the way on it’s single pick. It gave a little turn and waited to be brought in. I be a small piece of gaff tape was holding it together but it might have been some misplaced screws. Either way it seemed odd.

Watson Wisdom Wednesday

It didn’t happen often but once in a while there’d be free food. Mostly it was just ok but it saved thinking about a meal and once in a while it’d be something good.

So Rich looked as forward to these days as the rest of us but he had a secret. Took a while to figure it out but Rich would wait until people ate their fill and then he’d disappear. A while later he’d return with a tuperwear, fill it up and return it to his bag. It kept him from worrying about dinner, and sometimes breakfast and lunch.

Always carry a corn-tainer because you never know if there will be free food.
