Good morning crew,
The basement in the house is a real 'man cave' now. The wife bought me a dartboard and we installed it this weekend.
I have wanted to hang a dartboard down there for a couple years now, but believe it or not, I have had trouble finding anyplace local to me that sells the good, quality, tournament style boards. You can find the cork boards anywhere, but nobody retail seems to carry the good ones. The wife finally took the buying decision out of my hands and ordered one online. It arrived in two days.
It came with one of those fancy cabinets that must be mounted on the wall, so after drinking several beers Saturday afternoon we made a number of careful measurements and drilled the guide holes into the wall.
Since we completely missed the stud we tried to sober up a little bit and made some more careful measurements. The cabinet is heavy and really needs to be mounted properly. After about 10 holes (which are thankfully covered by the cabinet itself) we finally got the thing mounted and the board hung. It looks pretty cool down there.
I gave the wife a quick tutorial on the game of Cricket and we played our inaugural game.
The very first dart thrown, the wife embedded up to the barrel into the drywall. Which was pretty impressive since she had to miss not only the dartboard, but the entire cabinet as well.
I'm starting to think I should have installed it in the garage.
Laugh it up,

Also known as 'women's intuition,' this sixth sense thing is no myth. Women seem to know what's going on in their man's lives almost better than they do.
Why is this?
In the early 80's researchers discovered that women have more connections between the brain's two hemispheres than men do. It's these connections that allow them to put together a puzzle from seemingly unconnectable pieces...
That, and they go through your stuff while you're in the shower.

As they passed by the ruins of the Garden of Eden, one of the boys asked, "Father, what's that?"
Adam replied, "Boys, that's where your mother ate us out of house and home."
