31 January 2006 - 22:27What a difference a day makes
Today was a big progress day. I managed to build the carcasses for the counters all by myself.
I couldn’t have done it without the teachings of Master Jedi Norm Abram. Over the years, I have spent countless hours in front of the giant eye watching him build stuff, wishing I had both the patience and the skill do build the things he does. There is no secret to my affinity for a certain brand of power tool. Maybe he was with me in spirit. I swear I could hear him patiently guiding me every step of the way.
My wife might disagree, but I think that all the time I spent “studying” was worth it. Mind you, for a while I did schedule my life around my “Saturday morning shows”, this included bike rides too. And I hate to admit it, sometimes it was TV instead of ride.
However you look at it, I did accomplish a milestone today.
