    I hiked the trails at "Petit Jean National Park", in Arkansas, all day yesterday, with the wife and daughter. You dont realize how old you really are, until you hike all day, with a 14 year old that runs track, and navigates rocks like a Billy Goat. On the plus side, not a sore muscle or joint, this morning. Even after racing her up a few boulder trails.

    So far this morning I took the 5+ pounds of corned beef brisket and stuck it in a large pot, poured two cans of beer in there and topped it off with water, added the flavor packet and it's now simmering for the next 4 and 1/2 hours. I'll add some potatoes and carrots and lastly some cabbage. I have a loaf of soda bread to go with it. And I'll wash it all down with a can of Guinness draft. Yum. Happy St. Patricks day folks!

    I pulled a rotted fence post out, and replaced it. And I did it with hand tools. No battery or extension cord in sight. :)

    I did some maintenance on the ROOMBA with nothing but a 45 year-old Swiss Army knife.

    Trout fishing is on my future hobby list, when I retire. What area of the country do you do your fishing??

    I’m in Maryland. We actually just returned from fishing again this morning. I’ll post pictures later today. Maryland is a fisherman’s paradise. Plenty of freshwater, and saltwater fishing.

    Sorry everyone, but I forgot to get pictures of the 6 trout my son and myself caught this morning.
    My son, did land this fish Monday afternoon. It’s his biggest trout yet, and bigger than any I’ve ever landed.

    Reminds me of a problem I once solved, also using ordinary hand tools.
