from The Boss’ grandson is out of school and at the shop today spending time with PawPaw and Mimi and generally just having a good time. He wandered out somewhere and found a couple blocks of wood. He brought them to me and asked, "Jim, what were these blocks doing out there?"

To which I responded, "I doubt they were doing very much. They’re just blocks of wood."

I think I short-circuited something in his mind as he tried to process that one. I think I smelled smoke.
