Ten days of celebration! Free beer tomorrow.

Yesterday I spent only a few hours working myself into a pain-wracked mess. Quit before I had to spend a week recovering. Received my reward for that this morning when I finished the woodshed floor in a single non-painful hour.

A really conscientious person would get right to work stacking firewood, and if I run into one I’ll tell him so. But that’s a good way to finish the job of wrecking myself, so I’m gonna take a day. I’m thinking Star Wars film festival.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    I recommend 1 beer every 30 minutes. It may eventually interfere with your Star Wars festival.

    That’s looking pretty snazzy! One should sit in the shade and admire one’s handiwork with a congratulatory beer or other adult beverage.

    Is it really necessary to move all of the firewood before starting on your Foundation work? Some jobs are best done in persistent bits.

    Looks excellent! Nicely done.

    Ben, it’ll take several days to finish filling the shed, because I have no intention of trying to do it all at once. Anyway I have to get my financing in place before the next exciting episode, which will need to involve people delivering building materials on a truck. Except for some parts already attached to the Lair, the addition project will involve No Scrounged Parts.

    I’ve never done that before. :-/

    Yes, by golly. And Joel, you could even sit in the shade of your woodshed, considering you’re not filling it with wood yet. That’s a pretty snazzy mini-patio you just built there.

    Careful, that’s a step toward active participation in the capitalistic economy.

    I have found that there is always free beer tomorrow. Today, however, never seems to end. Guess I will keep providing for myself until I can skip ahead a day.

    Good job on the woodshed.

    And sometimes a bit of buying beats the hell out of a bunch of scrounging.

    Taught my son how to improvise a great many repairs. He (like me) would do that and run it to the last possible moment. “This is how the temporary becomes permanent.” is how we chide each other about these failings (or denial) of foresight.

To the stake with the heretic!
