Default What is your reaction time?

Now be honest. The best I achieved in my first 5 minutes of trying this was:

1. Overall seconds was .2108 and the best single animal run was .171 seconds

I won the Bobbling Bobcat award.

Getting old, are we?

Test your reaction time with this special test.

As I remember, the automobile driving manual says the average driver's
reaction time is: .75 seconds or 1 car length for every 10 mph..........

My reflexes have never been quite as good as most peoples' but the fastest I got one sheep was .179 sec my average was .2768. I also got the Bobbing Cat award. I'll try it again.

Okay, so while you guys were testing your nerves of steel, I was working on my muscles of iron and moved a 1000 lbs of brick in the 1.5 hours since I said I was going to work on my wifes garden retaining wall. All this going on while you were testing your reaction time.

Needless to say she was delighted when she came home.

Nice improvement Jeremiah! I'm sure your wife did like that. I have never been the biggest fan of landscaping work, but it always looks sweet when it's done. Time well spent. What was the occasion for this surprise?

Don't feel bad, as I am not the biggest fan of landscape work either. I do not like to paint, mop, sweep, or raking leaves. I can tolerate edging and mowing.

With those others I feel as if my brain is out of gear. Boring!

The occasion was to finish the job I started as this was my 3rd flower garden and to make my wife happy. She cooked my a great meal and said thanks.

She has the green thumb and loves to make plants and flowers grow. On the other hand, all I do is kill plants. Definitely not my talent. Now if I could talk to the plants and they could tell me what they wanted I might could do better. Plants are so fussy. LOLL!

As long as it is in doors, don't mind painting. I burn very easily.

Having the thanks and a great meal can be a great reward. My mom loves getting all types of flowers and plants and so forth. I think part of the reason why she loves that stuff is because she has my father, brother, and (when I'm around) me to do all of the work for her.

Your right about plants being fussy. My problem is I probably drown them when she asks me to water them.

If you burn easily, you either have red hair and or light skin complexion.
