    One flaw: how’s Calvin going to get back inside the warm house if he blocked the front door with a mound of snow?

    Accent on “sometimes.” Sometimes you get forced to do it over, correctly. With a blistered tush. Which, that no longer is a deterrent for some of us. lol

    or sometimes you get to do nothing useful or necessary for a career, raise a completely dysfunctional family, reinvent your resume in every speech you ever make, and eventually wander around a white house completely mindless, and have almost a whole world wonder whose your keeper and actually running the show. I guess if it happened to at least one person, and they got extremely rich doing it, it can happen to you Calvin. "here’s your sign’ – Go For IT!!! js

    Dad asked for it. I think it is mean to ask a six year old to showel the pathways for saving few dollars, though it builds character. But then you need to differentiate between a commoner and Calvin.
