Most nights was he really does is search ebay for coin collecting paraphernalia or make plans for various projects around the house.
But last night, I found him googling "how to play a penny whistle" and spent nearly an hour fluting away.
Tonight I finally went downstairs to see what the racket was and found that he'd installed a t.v. in the office and was happily playing his collection of old Atari games.
Maybe I need to come up with a "project" that sounds important. Like, "Hey Dan! All day Saturday I'm volunteering for something super important and prestigious" (i.e. eating cupcakes while I work on my tan pool-side.)
