I figured I may as well make it match. smile

I'm tired of filling my time with hobbies that do nothing but make time disappear, so I and a friend of mine are going to teach ourselves Latin. I had a couple of years in college, but I was a slacker and wasn't ever good with it. Plus it's been 15 years, so I'm basically starting from scratch. We're using Wheelock's Latin, the standard text, and YouTube videos for pronunciation.

Yesterday and today I learned what the odyssey was all about.

I replaced the radiator in my wife's car. Never done that before. That wasn't bad. What WAS bad was the endless run around from the parts stores that would order a part "It's coming in from Columbia, SC. Be here tomorrow at 9am!" Can you hear my derisive laughter from here? "I need the little plastic clips that undo quick couplings on the transmission lines that run into and out of the radiator. " Oh, we have those." Get there. "Oops, sorry... " says the ninteen year old young lady behind the counter..."I thought you meant the clips that hold them on. "Hey, have you got a bottom hose for the radiator of a "x".?" Nope have it here in three days, or you can drive twenty five miles to florence to get one!"

Seriously? I mean, it was three different parts companies, and they all crapped out on me.

So, I learned how to replace a radiator, and how to keep my cool and not burn down a town.

Does that count?


Damn you, you kids! Get off my lawn or I'm callin' tha cops!

Something pithy!

Okay, several years ago I bought an electric guitar. Inexpensive, just something to learn on. I am determined to learn. But, years ago when I went through voc rehab they gave me tests to determine what they would help pay for. One was dexterity. The ruled out surgeon or guitar player.


needless to say, it ain't going well. Hell, I can't even figure out how to tune the damn thing correctly, with an electronic tuner.

But, I'm trying to set aside an hour a day. Not easy, but I'm trying.
