Saturday In The Park

All the Chicago hit songs are etched in my mind from my youth.

This is kind of funny.  You know how they have the amazon mystery giveaway everyday?  It's this prize box you can click on everyday and if you win you get some product for free. 

I've never won and I've probably clicked it 100 times or 200 times.

My youngest son comes to me and says dad I have two packages coming from amazon.  I said okay, I'll look for them when they come.  He said he won them from the mystery giveaway.

A few days later I say to his brother, I don't know how the F he won twice, cause I've entered it a bunch of times and I don't ever win.  My son says, that's cause he downloaded some app that entered 8000 times, lololololol.

This kid is so **** smart.  Had an electrical problem on my zero turn and my ex-Fil and I had bolt meter up checking everything and couldn't figure it out.  My ex-Fil can build anything too ... used to buy rusted out old ford tractors and restore them and sell to make for money ... has his own mini-excavator and equipment ... does all his own maintenance ... retired operating engineer ... drove big equipment ... did a lot of work at navy pier when it was built and was a foreman.

My ex-FIL law is normally a calm man.  Really sweet and a good guy.  It was a rare instance I saw him getting frusrated.  My ex-mil asked us 5 times if it was out of gas even though it wouldn't even turn over and was an electrical issue.  starter wasn't even getting juice.  He was getting annoyed with my ex-mil keep asking us if it was out of gas and was like stfu, cause she wouldn't stop asking.

Anyway, this same son, who was maybe 11 at the time (he's 14 now) asks for model number and then goes o. Computer and looks up electrical schematics and comes down with them printed out and he says dad it must be here, here, or here and he points to three spots.  It was the third thing he pointed at and my tractor was good to go.

He's top or 2nd In his grade on math tests too.  I think he said there is one boy who does just a little better than him.

Cuts my grass on my 6 foot deck commercial zero turn, greases it every time and tells me when I'm out of grease, installed and wired a new horn in my boat.

Even my parents have been praising him and saying he is special out of all their grand kids.  Very handsome too ... striking blue eyes and blonde hair.  He's smaller though.  He has no fat on him. I was little to when I was his age.  1 weighed 105 going into high school.  I was 175 when I graduated and strapping and tough as eff.  So we'll see how it goes with him.

That kid of mine had 4 more amazon packages delivered today.  One of the things he won was one of those snorkel masks with the valve.  One thing he won was a baby safety electrical outlet cover.  When he told me I said we can install it in his room, lol.

He's gonna have to eBay some of this shot cause I'm not hoarding all this **** he's winning.  Only some of it is useful.  WTF we gonna do with a baby proof electrical outlet or cover of some sort or whatever it is?

He won a cool metal little step stool or a little table and the 4 legs fold under and lock via these spring biased push pins that extend through holes in the legs under the top to lock them in a stowed position (my goodness I feel like I'm writing a patent describing this thing).   It's actually pretty nice.  Probably $25-30. It's good quality.  No plastic.. can support 300 pounds.

I told him they gonna realize what's up when one dude keeps winning all this shut and he's gonna get banned.  He said that's okay he'll set up new accounts and PO Boxes.  Kid is diabolically smart.
