Today was Find-all-the-camping-gear-and-get-it-straightened-out* Day. Which meant cleaning all the rest of the garage to get TO the camping gear. Mumbling imprecations against people who don't know how to put gear back together when they're done using it.

Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.
