I just spent the last 3 hours helping my dad assemble a new gas grill. The instructions claimed that assembly should only take half an hour. Ha ha. We still need to go back and take one section apart because we didn't do it right, but dad's back was tired and the storms are rolling in, so we'll do it later.

What made the afternoon so interesting was that when I first stepped out the back door to lend a hand, the first thing I saw was a great blue heron on the roof of the house behind our neighbors. A few hours later we spotted two hawks circling the neighborhood. I live in the suburbs of Detroit, so this is pretty unusual. On the other hand, my house is half a mile away from the Zoo. Before they built I-696, people a few blocks north of us used to find peacocks from the Zoo on their lawns.
