I have a few today, in the order they happened...

1. Improving on the last tank when I filled up prior to some travel.

2. Played badminton for the first time in a while with my friend. We used to play weekly but it has lapsed because of work and we both needed it. Will ache tomorrow

3. A-Jnr watching the footie tonight (well until 8-30, bedtime). He gets "involved"...

4. It's Friday tomorrow.

5. A few working days away from the office organised for next week (evening emails).

and

6. Fixing a server owned by a client which we use for our system. We get the flack for it not working so we work evenings to fix. Turns out it is the company which said it was our fault in the first place making changes they denied. Proving them wrong is nice for a few hours, just fixing it and having a happy client is priceless

Yes this is Windows...

I had just started my truck to leave work Monday afternoon, and a cute, young production operator walked up and asked, "Could you jump me?" (Hell, YEAH!)
I was a gentleman and helped her jump start her truck.
I told her the next day that she may want to re-word her request next time. She agreed.

Hmm, maybe she understood (and agreed) that she should reward her request next time?

Today's...

Smile #1: It's Friday!

Smile #2: The Wife and I are going to the mountains to hike for two days.

Smile #3: The sun came out from behind a rain cloud.

Ooooo, this made my day: While biking back home from the store this morning I found a leprechaun. I've decided to use him as cheap labor (he's small, so won't require much food). One of my ideas is to replace my alternator with this leprechaun, but I'm not sure what would be better:
make him pedal on a small bike generator,



or make him run in a squirrel cage?



What do you guys think?
