It's 2:00 AM, Do You Know Where Your Dad Is?

People often ask me, "Where do you find the time?".

 It's 2:00 AM and I'm on the front porch assembling patio furniture. To be honest, its actually the second time I'm assembling this furniture. The first time, I assembled it in the family room. It was only after I finished that I tried to take it outside that I realized my mistakes.  You see old houses had much smaller doors than the McMansions of the modern day. No matter how you twist and turn, you simply cannot get a 34" Rolston patio chair out of a 32" door.

 I'm blaming this time consuming oversight on George Lucas. If the Star Wars trilogy hadn't been on tv, then I probably would have been paying a little more attention. Or perhaps, I wouldn't have constructed the entire patio set, arranged it in the family room and tested it out while enjoying a few beers. So, where do I find the time? Somewhere in the middle of the night, between the Empire and Jedi, after the second beer (but before the third).

Happy Memorial Day, it's already been one to remember (and forget).
