So, yesterday was a big day for power tools...I broke out the power drill and the Dremel, and took the hardware that forestcats had purchased to make a cheese press. Unfortunately, she'd assumed that we had all the tools we needed, but I had to get some specific drill bits that we didn't already have, as well as a pair of tin snips. Once in hand, though, we were good, and I managed to do it, with only one slip up. There is a crack in the base piece, but everything holds together well, and I don't think it will matter. It's my understanding that later today another pressed cheese will be prepared to age like the cheddar is presently doing in the refrigerator.
Later in the day, I rode Yogi for the first time. Whoa.
We finished the day by watching a film directed by Kevin Smith, Cop Out. I can see his hand in it, but it's not a typical Smith film. 'Twasn't written by him, for one thing. We enjoyed it, but it's mental bubblegum.
:) Lots of constructin' goin on this weekend. And such is the case with first-time projects, many times there's a new tool you need for the job. Sounds like a good productive day off.
It's been a long time since I've ridden a horse. In Tibet in 2000, they offered to put me on this tiny thing, it probably could have done me, but I feared I would crush it. It wasn't half as big as the quarter-horse they used to bring out for me at Las Trompas for trail rides.
I take it this was your first ride on Yogi, not that you just broke him. :) *pictures the Doctor with a 10-gallon hat riding a bucking bronco.*

There were a couple of bucks, but nothing that I didn't manage in my thumb-fingered fashion to handle. No, Yogi is broken to saddle all right.
