No rollerskating

You may not be able to rollerskate in a buffalo herd, but nobody said anything about slaloming around a group of docile bison. Motorists are used to such four-legged road hazards in these parts.

Work and play

Have just finished one of those proverbial easy-to-assemble play structures, which are at once infuriating and humbling.
The maze of plastic, ropes, doo-dads, special brackets, unique drill bit heads and jiggers, could, according to the box that was purchased at Home Depot, be assembled and enjoyed within four to eight hours! Allegedly, two people could accomplish this task, in less than half a day!
Now, this is not to say that the marketers fibbed about the ease of assembly. However, when I assisted a friend in putting together the fun contraption, it required eight hours -- to cut the special pressure-treated lumber into the appropriate lengths.
Good news is that it will be ready when his son turns 7.
Bad news is that his son just turned 5.
