Too Much Organization?

I guess when you are retired, you have time to go "organization
overboard" in your shop!

My first attempt... YUMMY!

My Little Nerdling

After days of work, he managed to get his first-ever self-designed
video game map to run.

He'll buy a car for his old man some day!

Anthony Munoz

How can it be that I simultaneously look both very very small, and
very, very fat?

Just like Democrat restrooms

... Except that we don't expect someone from the government to come in and shake it FOR us!

Urban Survivalist

Going on three days without power. Good thing I have theze "mad
survivage skillz" to keep me going.

I'm two days away from forraging for the kids' breakfast and rigging a
tarpaulin to collect sun-warmed bath water in.

This is a lot of work ...

For a car stereo for a seventeen year old's '94 Pontiac.


Nothing quite like wrapping a room in plastic to make it as hot and
uncomfortable as possible...

Roasting peppers...

Mmmm ... The aroma!

The Bachelor's Bathroom

A well-stocked bathroom is essential to any single guy's survival.
It's not worth the risk of running out; better safe than sorry.

Don't wack your meat on the counter!

I need a bigger grill!

I barely had room for the artichoke, feta, & spinach pizza!

Absurd, isn't it?

Good seal

Now THIS is a well-sealed foil packet.
(grilled French fries, a new attempt for me.)

Cornish Hens

On the advice of counsel, I didn't name them.

Angels Sang ...

... When I opened it.

Old Men Who Hate Bush

... And love to sit in a coffee shop and bloviate about macro
economics as if they are smarter than Alan Greenspan.

My morning irritation.

Thunderstorm Rotisserie

My view:

An increasingly familiar vantage point for me; waiting for one of my
cars to be repaired.

Nothing is quite so disappointing as running out of LP, then grabbing
the backup tank only to find it empty, too.

Burgers on the stove? BLECH!

Trimming Disney Style

I was planning on shaping it like a bust of John Cleece, but it turned
out as a big green rectangle.

Cooking with booze

Should I stir the worm in there, too?

This is why I grow my own!

Nasty ass grocery store habaneros...

Ribeyes & Wedges

Kroger Internment Camp?

This appeared in the Kroger lot tonight. Dave thinks it's Gitmo-2.
I think the New World Order is gearing up to put us all in
concentration camps.

I call it, "yard work."

Hop Devil

All of the hops yet not terribly bitter. Great stuff.

(And I'm starting to think I should re-name this blog, "what's on tap?")

= homemade chimichangas

Old Rasputin

Never had it on tap... A real treat
