    Every time I try a DIY project, it takes me 2 or 3 times as long as it should and it usually needs redone. I imagine it must be hilarious to watch.
    Comically bad at DIY

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    I love the poetry and richness of the Old King James Bible...no other translation has the same tone. My sig quote carries multiple meanings (for proof texting fans) and you have to think a bit to fathom the actual intent.

    The second one is a take off from Monte Python Holy Grail (the wizard's name) and my actual name.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    There has seldom been a time in my 55 years that I have not had a dog.
    They greet me everyday like I've been gone for a year.
    They get so excited when I tell them we're going for a walk.
    They love to hang out with me as much as I do with them.
    My sig pretty much sums it up.
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    Line 4 - SOF attitude I picked up at my last assignment...particularly relevant now that we've found a hay-colored needle in a haystack.

    Mine is just a fav Bible verse about the entire creation waiting ( groaning for) the better things to come. I felt particularly aware of the "groaning" of the creation last week during the tornadoes!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
