how can i describe the problems with which i have to deal?--perfect example this morning...while opening teh front door, i finally discovered why i have not had much success in producing right angles in the stuff i have built around here...
opening and shutting the front door has always been a 2 step process-- for maybe a year.. maybe 2..... in the next house i build, i will put in 48 inch doors. from sofas to refrigerators to pizza boxes... or many bags of groceries have been a problem... from the long bench prohibiting one from opening it fully to the 4 danes rushing to greet everyone -- to teh table with teh time clock, that particular passing has been difficult. teh process of going thru the door is about all i can deal with- as my mind is elsewhere-- analyzing why the opening of a door is such a challange was never high on my list--
behind any door there is a small space which is not wasted around here-- tall thin thngs live there-- umbrellas.. walking sticks, canes ( many), plus i found today that my lost "T" square, placed sideways resided there. i have been looking for that for a long time.-- it may not be necessary in construction, but it helps.-- i mean if you nail up a board and keep it level with a short piece of siphon hose, then drop a string with a weight on the bottom , you will have pretty close to a right angle, a piece of paper is good for small right angles-- and laying out buildings ( like teh g tent-) teh 3 4 5 triangle and equal diagionals will be close enough for govt' work...
and kids can't see why they need to study geometry-- that is because they don't know about things like hammers and nails anymore.. just poking finger s at keyboards...
that is another problem - i have either a defective index finger or mouse ---a simple click on the little box has become difficult this morning...
now that i have solved one of the open door problem... maybe indsex finger is next. i know i have a new mouse around this hice somewhere/
steve and tanner will apparently be around today on their way to oregon for baseball camp... apparently tanner has developed a talent for throwing a baseball with accuracy- namely from home base to second base... like thru a car tire at second base....??? really...??. in the case of future earnings... this equates baseball camp to a harvard education... being a mike rowe type-- i think teh investment in baseballs and tires would make more sense... we do wish him well... hopefully when he comes back we will be able to make sure he can wear the usual size baseball cap as he did when he left.
an old friend from teh medical world is coming with grand kids this morning... he is indian-- and introduced me to great indian food...
for lack of anything better, i will try and take him to "MY indian restaurant" the "itallian, indian gas station" near here.. could be fun and amusing... nice guy runs the place....
