    Many videos do prove that for sure. Did you notice all the guys who have had time to be able to bounce a ball or something into an impossible place accurately? That takes time.

    Right.
    Get your ass outside, and stay there.
    (that’s what my mother told us kids in the summer)
    Get that sun all over ya, helps your natural immune system, ‘specially if you’re older.
    And don’t just stand there, move that ass.

    Inside, outside, tain’t no thang, long as your doing something you enjoy (Even better if it’s something useful.).

    Been pretty much inside the last 2 days, threw my back out Friday, cutting and bucking some trees while trying to avoid stepping on Dinner, a grouse that decided, back in May, that she likes to supervise and help me with my tree cutting.

    So! Inside now. Not especially enjoying it but found a great use for the ziplock bag of lamb (Just spell corrected last word, had written lamb as lame, think I was right the first time.) stew I had in the freezer, makes a fine cold pack on my back right now. None the less I do enjoy that I found a use for sheep or lamb, after all the good stuff, the wool, is gone, makes a grand cold pack!

    Nope, didn’t watch the trick shot, but someday I just might show ya’ll the my coffee maker I build out a broken Mr. Coffee, 10 inch saw blade, 5 minute timer switch, oil pan heater, and sections of an old single engine aircraft frame I had laying in the yard. 😉

    OK James, I need to see that contraption, now. But let your back heal first. FWIW, look up lidocaine patches. They come in various sizes and stick onto the area needed pain relief. Both my wife and I use them every now and then when needed.

    About 6 years ago I was using my earth auger with 12″ bit to drill a series of holes in the ground for the concrete I would pour to support 4″x4″ wood columns to support a 40′ long deck I built. On the last hole the bit got hung up in a subterranean sassafrass root (I could smell it) and when I yanked up on the auger real hard something in my lower back snapped and the pain was overwhelming, rendering me the most basal invalid for 3 days then a 3 week recovery. We didn’t have the patches then but I wish we did. That same reoccurred a year or so ago when I bent down wrong to pick up the dog bowl. Patch to the rescue and I was not chained to the couch. Limited movement, but not incapacitated. I highly recommend.

    Imagine what could have been accomplished if only a fraction of that time and effort had been put into something more lasting and meaningful.
