    Yay!  My own word!

    I should use it more often.  Ooh, it's almost bed time.  "Kids, time to unslink up the stairs for bed!"

    Okay... maybe not.

    My thump was discovering that my iThingy cable thingy that I thought was going to be delivered today won't be delivered til Monday.  Well, not a very serious bump.  I can wait.

    By the way folks, about authors in the Introductions thread....try to remember that authors are people too.  :D  We ask that ALL our members stop by and tell us about themselves.  If someone's an author, it's not unreasonable to talk about his or her books....though I'll admit some of them just post their sales pitch.   ;D) And at the same time, we have non-author members who join, introduce themselves, and then we don't hear much from them. Just saying'.

    Oh yeah, this is the thump thread.  I was having too much fun with the unslinkables I forgot!

    Well, my thump today was this darn head ache that won't go away.   >:(

    But I'm laughing so much about the unslinking that I'm not thinking about it so much!

    My thump today was that a big storm tore up our deck cover early this morning. Because we have a family cook-out planned for tomorrow I spent most of the day doing temporary repairs to make it safe and usable. It turns out, by end of day, that only three of the ten family members that we expected are going to be able to come.

    Tomorrow, after the very small cook-out, I'll tear down the cover and start building a new one that will stand up to a gale force wind.  ;D

    Jeff, sorry about your damage and your "smallened" cookout.  That's always disappointing.

    Ah Jeff, that bites. If I were closer, I'd invite myself to your cookout, bring all the BRATs and spend the day telling you what a fantastic job you did on the deck cover, all while trying to keep the boy from climbing all over it. Heck, he'd probably want to help you build a new one. He's getting quite handy with the table saw (KIDDING) but he is handy with regular hand tools.

    The youngest Grandson, when he was about 4, was watching a repairman work on the stove at their house...after a few minutes, he said "I could do that if i was taller." And that's his philosophy of life.  He always thought he was the same age as his five-year-older brother; just much shorter.

    They say Buddha was born fully grown (I ache thinking of his mother ;D); that reminds me of Alex.

    Haha. Thanks. My great-grandson will be more than all the help I need. I'll try to remember to take pictures of him helping.

    Silly question of the day.  I've had a deck, but it never had a cover.  Is a cover like a roof? An overhang? What you use to cover-up when you're feeling unslinky?

    Hope your temp repairs work out okay.  Sounds like you have a big job ahead of you tomorrow.

    I guess "pergola" would be more accurate. 

    What you use to cover-up when you're feeling unslinky?
    I hope to never feel slinky.
