Ouch that sucks. You could always do a prime rib then take the end cut off for her and place it under the broiler for a few minutes to fully cook it

... and then throw it on the floor and stomp on it a few times before plating it.  😂

Pasco WA is the city across the Columbia River from where I live in Richland WA... one of the TriCities along with Kennewick.  The Pasco Police Department posts some hilarious Facebook posts and a fun to follow.  Today's post is typical of their humor.   🤣

HEROIC GUARDRAIL SACRIFICES ITSELF! Actually, if you live anywhere near Sylvester/ Road 60, you are aware that the Pasco PD routinely gets complaints of speeding on the long, straight section of Sylvester between Roads 32-56, and that Sylvester makes a hard right northbound to become Road 60.
Throughout the years, a noble order of guardrails has stood on the far side of Road 60, facing constant peril in their ongoing quest to protect the house beyond the guardrail. The way is marked with reduced speed limits, arrows, and reflective markings, but still, as time goes by, one after another guardrail pays the ultimate price and a new one arrives to take its rightful place.
We regret to report that the end of 2021 has resulted in yet another heroic and stoic guardrail getting mangled. It happened at about 1 AM Thursday morning when a blue Ram pickup attacked the guardrail without provocation. The battle was epic but only lasted an instant. The guardrail was uprooted and dragged into the yard, but it still managed to stop its foe short of the goal. The house stands triumphant.
Officers arrived to find the Ram's driver still seated in the pickup, unharmed. After a short investigation, the 28-year-old Pasco male was arrested for DUI and booked into Franklin County Jail.
The guardrail's friend of many years, the streetlight, was also struck down in his prime during this battle. Both the guardrail and streetlight will be remembered at a memorial service in the near future, at a metal recycling facility to be named later.

Last night, my wife and I watched a Jeff Dunham special of his tour around the globe... really good.  We debated which character was the best.  She likes Walter (mostly because he reminds her of our good friend and former neighbor in WA) and I like Achmed, though must admit Walter is a really close second.  Who is your favorite?

That’s a tough question, Walter #1 probably because he’s my age group (he may be younger) with Peanut close 2nd.

Spent 4 hours yesterday afternoon and 5 hours today removing my old golf green. I thought it would take another day but I got it finished. It was 1-1/2 inch thick turf that was sand filled. I had to cut it into 2 foot by 12 foot sections and drag it off into the woods. Eventually it will get buried. The green was 24' wide by 30' deep. I am impressed with the sub base. I put that in about 15 years ago and it's still in excellent condition. Now that the base is so good the delema is in what to do next. Thinking about going to natural grass.

My vote is natural grass but I don’t have to pay or maintain it. 
Good luck whatever you decide.

@Tom the Golf Nut are you redoing it? If you are and go with natural grass I hope you have a lot of time and the right $$ mower for it. If not, I'd go with synthetic.

I must have missed it, but what was the reason for taking out the turf, was it worn out in some way?  I am interested to know if this is a project in my future since mine has been in place since 2009.
