Accomplishments of the day

Assisted Dr. Pookie in performing surgery on one of the chairs. It had not occurred to us, dude, that there should be another dowel-y thingy connecting the back legs. Obviously there had been, but it had snapped off at some point, and the remaining one had snapped off at one side and been intriguingly repaired at some point. This repair did not last, necessitating some further reconstruction work. Pliers, saw, hacksaw, drill, and wood glue have been applied, and the patient is recuperating while the glue dries for one future ticklish operation. So far so good.

Currently watching over a pot of our chili recipe, with today's bonus ingredient: linguiça. Smells great and the paprika coloration is quite noticeable.
