Not much actually, was 36-37 degrees and then a summer-storm so I stayed inside.

Cooked myself some scrambled eggs, perhaps?

Gave my 17 year old son an hour and 45 minute talk on the importance of being a doer rather than a dreamer.

I was in a cave and smashed a western diamondback rattlesnake with a rock this morning. Fuck rattlers.

Anybody need a new belt?

Drove a bulldozer. Construction site. I knew the operator and I asked him if he'd let me play around a bit since nobody else was around. He showed me the controls and let me have at it for a few minutes. Hell of a lot of fun.

I have always enjoyed heavy equipment operating. Were you in a big fucker like a Cat D9?

Yup. D9. He was clearing out trees and re-grading a construction site. I picked up a gigantic rock and a huge scoop of dirt from a pile he had made earlier in the day. So much power. I was grinning from ear to ear but he only let me play with it for a little bit. I'd imagine he'd get in a bit of trouble if someone saw us.

Great name for a snake. :D
I agree! Perfect name. That's what I call all of them when I find them. I hate rattlers, they scare the shit out of me. So I tend to play it safe and eliminate the risk (within reason, if we can safely get away I'll let them go. But in a cave I don't have much choice, not enough space to get away for my liking). This "Mr. Shithead" was fairly aggressive, so he forced my hand a bit. It's funny, I work with biologists who get all bent out of shape "don't hurt him, snakes are awesome" kind of shit. And then we find a 5-footer in a cave and it suddenly changes to "hey, we need your help over here" haha. :D

I've driven a steam roller before too. We were at a party in a neighborhood where new construction was going on. There was a steamroller parked at the end of the road to keep people from driving off the end of the blacktop street. Being in construction most of my life, I figured the keys were probably still in the ignition. They were. I fired that bad boy up, figured out the controls with a quickness and started flattening beer cans on the street. It was a lot of fun until the women in the party saw what we were doing and made us quit.

And by "made us quit", I mean "went apeshit on our asses"
