EZMiscellaneous Thoughts and Ramblings for the week.
I just finished reading Slobbernocker by Jim Ross, aka Good Ol' JR on my Kindle Paperwhite.  He's lived quite the extraordinarily life in the wrasslin' business.  Being an 'old school guy' he started at the bottom in a local/regional wrestling promotion and worked his way up to be one of WWE Mr. McMahon's trusted advisors.

Here are a few of my notes from the book:

When People ask JR why he loves wrestling so much he answers with - "Wrestling combines the two things I loved most in the world: sports and storytelling."

"Courage is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway." - John Wayne
EZQuote of the Week:

"A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." - Albert Einstein

EZLink of the Week:  The strange history of One of the Internet's First Viral Videos.
"It's better to die of use than rust."

Well said JR, well said.

EZBuilding a Shop Loft (the Beginning): Two weeks ago I drove up to help Uncle Bill start work on the loft he's building in his big shop.  His 14 year old grandson Mason was also in town during Christmas break to learn some wood working skills from his papa (and his Uncle Gary).

We installed (2) 6" x 6" Posts and then watched the Seahawks final game of the 2017 season, a loss to the Cardinals to finish the season at 9 - 7.

Working in the shop is certainly inspiring me.  Enjoy the Pictures.
Those 6 x 6 posts are solid baby.
With 16' walls, a sciccor lift makes the job a little easier.
