My 9 yo old son has just woken up, and comes downstairs to greet me as I am getting ready for work.
Son: “Daddy, what am I worth?”
Daddy has also just awoken, so isn’t as sharp as might be needed.
Me: “What do you mean, boyo?”
Son: “Well, I heard that Bill Gates is worth something like a billion billions dollars, and so I want to know what I am worth?”
Daddy responds quickly, and buys time to think of a better answer than this…
Me: “Well boyo, Bill Gates was in a software company that wound up selling billions of dollars of software over like 30 years all over the world, and became very wealthy.”
Son: “Ok Daddy, so what am I worth.”
The pressure continues. Daddy knows that this is the moment. A moment. A potential turning point in the outlook of a youngster. He is the son. I am the father. He wants to know.
As quick as I could think, this is all I could come up with in that moment :
Me: “Boyo, you are priceless.”
I felt weak, but hopeful for this effort.
Son : “Oh, NOW I see how it is all coming together!”
And we both laughed.
I am not sure what he concluded.
This is the pace of silence. A 20 minute sit, with 30 seated people.
Yah, wow – and now with this WordPress editor being so darn modern, you can even use the WYSIWYG editor tools to align the post text with the image!
In this case, the “Align left” option was selected to put the image to the left of the text I had inserted into this post. Wow. I am so impressed! Back in the day, you had to remember all the markup and styles to align the text properly. Anybody here remember blogging with Greymatter or Nucleus ?
Yah, we like our low-flush toilet, and installed this baby in 2007. Saves us so much water every year, which is great, because here in the CRD we got major extra utility charges to deal with this sewage project that is going on.
I wanted to upload a quick video clip here, to share with a parts supplier.
Yup, I am at home in James Bay, doing stuff around the house. I may need to post various artifacts here while I go, and of course, some stuff will land on the Instagram!
Well, it seems as though here in Rockland, winter has lifted for a spell.
