Man, I think if Kwahi did't get injured no wat GS would've won. They were dominating. Kawahi is just amazing.

GSW I think came in thinking it was a done deal and they played really bad ball. Even theur strong defense was lousy. Hope Kawahi is good for game 2. Today either Boston or Washington go home...should be a tight game. I think if Wall steps up Washington can win.

64 minutes - That is very precise Fog! :D

Today, it took me 45 minutes for a car ride that should have taken about 20 minutes or less. Why you ask? Glad you did, lol - CONSTRUCTION!!! I had to go through 4 different construction sites to go from point A to Z. That made me late for an appointment. Crap!

Twas a bad night all around for Pittsburgh the Pirates lost to the Mets which sucked as I watched a lot of it to avoid watching the massacre of the damn Penguins, who got their asses handed to them in Nashville by the Predators...

:-(

On a more positive note I was inspired to start on a new Criterion cover and it's well on the way to completion...

Just put together a pot of my world famous (in my world, anyway) Curry Chicken (Thai style). It will be simmering until lunch.

Finished a cover for the first time in a long time.

Popped in here to upload it to discover that that "long time" has been 11 months and I'm now retired!

Holy shit... 11 months!!!  :-W

Started down grading my secondary desktop PC back to Win 7 Pro.
The last Win 10 update froze the PC into a never ending loop of start, restarting, start, restarting,
never doing anything else.
Have the operating system installed and some of the programs.
