Put a pergola cover up over the deck, and added two more hummingbird feeders.

Not much today.

Laid a block path to the shed, trimmed the bushes, pulled weeds, power washed part of the driveway, and balanced the last 2 months of the check book. (and the check book was the easiest part of the day)

Went to our local theme park (Michigan's Adventure) with my family and my brother's family and turned a thrill ride rating of "1" into a 4 or 5.

You're a terrible father.  I can't believe you'd put those children's lives at risk like that.  Next, you'll be allowing them to walk someplace unattended or handle things with a blunt end.  I'm surprised you're not already in jail.

Spent about 45 minutes lapping a Formula Renault car as part of a racing school experience. That stroked childhood fantasies and checked off a bucket list item. And I wasn't bad.

Drove nearly 3 hours to my brother's house with chainsaws and misc tools in hand.  We dislodged some downed trees (using truck and chains) and proceeded to limb them and carry the brush into the woods then cut the remaining wood to length and stacked it up.  We even split some of the larger logs in hopes that he'll be able to burn them in his new outdoor fireplace.  He's got a very nice couple / few acre lot so it was several hours work but easy work considering.  When he offered me a bunch of cash, I said I'd like to start a family pay it forward campaign so I told him to send it to our other brother who needs cash more.  After doing the work, we went out to dinner and had pretty decent Chinese.  We ended up not getting home till nearly midnight after a nice, uneventful drive home.

(Kevin refused via email and I just got done scolding him for trying to take away my opportunity for kindness and explained to him how pay it forward works.  We'll see how that goes.)

You rule.  That is brilliant work, whether it works or not.
