A Well Practiced Awkward Dumb Effort

Ahhhh, time to once again ring out the another year gone by with one of my personal favorite activities that the kids and I have turned into an end of year tradition... "Smash Pot Day".

Gotta love it. Here's a quick thought from this years swing...

“Celebrate today’s success… because there’s always a very good chance that tomorrow you’ll wake-up and realize it all just amounts to a well practiced, awkward dumb effort.”

Nothing puts a period at the end of a sentence like the swing of a big’ol hammer.

Dammit

I am a fan of the hammer!
Or a well placed aim at a tree.
It feels so good!
I save seconds for those "special" times when I need the fix.
Happy New Year to you and yours.

Geez. I hope those weren't 'keepers'...

At my house, we go one step further and use junk pots for target practice. :)
