even though I about lost it putting in a shower door!
Have you ever put in a shower door? That’s a job, mostly because everything these days is made in China as cheaply as possible. The metal used in the screws was so bad that I stripped two out of eight of them! Should have known better and purchased better ones from the git-go. The top piece is a little bit warped so it makes it hard to open but I can deal with that.
Me and home projects don’t see eye to eye most times. I end up totally ticked off and out of control, don’t go near me for the duration of the project. But, it’s done and we are almost ready for Thanksgiving. But does it ever really end? Remodeling, I mean? I don’t think so.
But that was soon forgotten when Hero and 1 arrived home. After three tours of duty in Baghdad, he made it out and home. He’s exiting the military and will give the private sector a try.
So I fired up the grill with a pile of oak and mesquite, let the temperature get so hot you could barely stand to be within three feet, then tossed on a huge, thick sliced porterhouse for Hero and a T-Bone for 1, along with chicken breasts for SU and I. SU took care of all the fixin’s and we had a great dinner. God, thank you for bringing that boy home.
After dinner, Hero and 1 went down to Redbox and picked up Spiderman 3. We headed upstairs and watched it all together. Cool flick, the graphics were incredible. Unbelievably incredible. Fun night.
But mostly, it was just good to have Hero home.
