Painful Job #7

Hey! Just discovered another career I never want to have -- piano mover.

Another buddy and I just helped my brother get a "free" piano from a lovely couple who are retiring to someplace warmer.

Lifting a piano up stairs and into a pickup truck without benefit of a ramp was ... horrible to say the least. A quick trip to Home Depot to get some forearm forklifts and the wrong kind of ramps  brought it down from outrageously dangerous to merely painful.

Happy piano plinkering, Outpost 2! Never again -- the piano conveys.

Seriously, look at this picture. There is NO good way to do this, only worse ones.

What's Up With That?

I haven't exercised seriously in three years.

Today, I went on a three mile walk and the BACK of my knees hurt? I could understand my feet hurting, my quads hurting, or even my calf muscles ... but the back of my knees?

This exercise thing is overrated. Pulled muscles are overrated. You never heard of anyone "pulling a fat".

Overheard In My House

Kids say the darndest things.

Nib: Is Daddy the leader because he likes beer the most?


Dab: I'm frustrated because I'm 4 years old!
Me: You're not the only one!
