Sunny and high 60s in the NV desert today.

Today's Question(s):

No zipping, parasailing or bungee jumping for me. Tried skateboarding when my kids were little and wasn't very good. Loved roller skating though.

So what are some of your ""Penny Wise, Pound Foolish" oops ? I've had many years of not being able to afford the "best", but mostly have been lucky with my choices.

What the heck am I doing trying to get the hinges off my doors?

Are you allergic to anything ? Rashes from antibiotics is about it.

Happy Tuesday everyone!
