Slightly more seriously, it has to be when I figured out how to tie a stimulator with rubber legs and make it look almost professional. I'll try to post a pic later.

That put a smile on my face....I just learned not that long ago how to use a whip finisher. I am still not great at it. I hand whip finished 100% of the time until recently. I just could not figure out that simple, maddening, little tool.
