    Exclamation The Small Garden Shed of Eternal Damnation.

    I give! GAH!

    I left after a good morning of working on putting together the shed. That is 7 hours total I have spent on this thing. I went to a neighborhood pig roast for a few hours. This is how it looked when I left-

    The pig roast was fun! If you look close there is a COTH-er hiding in this pic of the pig and happy attendees (not me, I took the pic). The man carving the pig is a COTH-hubbie

    Then, I get home to see if i can just get the roof on and get it done before dark about 9 pm. It starts pouring, not drizzle, we are talking soaking nasty dumping rain. I hear thunder in the distance. The screws, bolts, and screwdriver are slipping out of my sopping wet fingers. I am trying mightily to get the main support beam to attach to a gable and manage to drop it on my head twice. I bellowed a word that could be used to describe a rooster followed by "sucker!!" (odd choice as even back when I was way more foul mouthed that was not a common one for me?), threw my screwdriver, and am throwing in the towel for now. You will notice I also left the towel out in the rain, hanging off the wheelbarrow handle.

    Another COTH-er mentioned earlier that the reviews include many descriptions of this thing being a pain to put together. Well, you definitely need two people, preferably at least one with an even temper

    Just think how spiffy that will look once you get it finished.

    I am so cranky right now if it wasn't so big I would use it for target practice.

    Of course, I have been informed that I am not allowed to discharge a firearm in the city limits. I live in the city now, better behave. I think I will have a whiskey when my friends come over tomorrow, or perhaps 4 and pay my friends son to finish it.

    Hah! Sounds like a plan!

    Like my darned run in shed, my PORTABLE run in shed, that DH decided needed a full foundation. But then this came up, and that came up, so where it should be are trenches and three foot high thistles.

    What kind of whiskey? I can get you any kind of Bourbon you want, I'll join you.

    Y'all imbibers be careful.
    Someone I know just had to be bailed out for DWI.
    'This the season for that.

    As for that pig in a platter, shudder.
    I will do the butchering if you need me to, but for preparing and eating my food, I prefer it in neat little pieces, thank you.

    I don't like looking at my meals like that either, especially pork as I'm afraid I might recognize it. Maker's Mark for me, I'll hoist one in honor of the shed from damnation and the invisible run in tomorrow, yes, at home Bluey.

    I don't eat anything that looks like what it looked like when it was alive. It makes it easier to remain in denial that way. My friend had a pig roast for her rehearsal dinner and I said "it's a girl, there is steam coming out of her vulva." No thanks.
