I normally move a lot of heavy gear as part of my “day job” of doing concert sound. I wouldn’t say I’m a strong guy, but I can move 100+ pounds without much effort.
My wife has decided to extend the driveway sideways. This will allow me to park my truck further away so she can have more driveway. I won’t bore you with her logic, it would make a Vulcan commit suicide. It would make Spock swear and go on a rampage kind of bad.
Anyhow, I’m working to prepare the area that the driveway is going to extend into. All I can say is I’m clearly not in the proper condition to do this kind of yardwork. I can mow, no problem. Pull weeds? No problem. The work isn’t done, but this was more than a 1 day job anyways, so that’s not a big deal. However, my arms are killing me, my back hurts and my knees aren’t doing much better.
On Friday, I got tired of the response in my Fiesta XX’s response falling out. I think between the amount I’ve used it, and the recent trip to Vietnam and the high heat and humidity, the adhesive just up and quit on me. The response wasn’t super worn, but it’s been over a year and a half, so I guess that ain’t bad. Friday night, I siliconed it. I usually do this work late, so I would have been unable to get to the yoyo until around 9PM Saturday, but I was too distracted then to see how my work came out. I tried after the yard work. All I can say is that it was not an enjoyable experience. Wow, my arms really are sore!
On the positive side, it appears the silicone job went very well! I hope I can get to it tomorrow.
This does give a bit more credibility to yoyo being a sport. I’m not completely “in shape” and I’m paying for it.
