The billet was in peril! I shall not detail the manner in which I slew the beast, for it may be misunderstood as braggadocio, but suffice it to say that the task was accomplished and the billet saved, with ample time for a pint and a pipe at the close of the weary day. . . .

I just went to work and had a lot of boring meetings, then I came home, had dinner with the family and walked around the shop, sighed a bit, and wished I had spent the day doing something real. Dave
