Never a dull moment
There are always things happening around here that just suck up my time. You already know about my plumbing extravaganza. Well, last weekend a huge limb fell off of one of our trees in the back yard. This wasn't a small branch. I was about a full third of the tree (which is slated to come down anyway). It pulled the main electric line down to about 5 feet from the ground. I was amazed that it didn't pull it off our house. I cut the line free but this weekend I am going to have to cut up the rest of the limb. Time to sharpen the chain saw blade.
Then, yesterday I was trying to reverse my piece-o-crap 1975 Ford van and the gears shifted in the steering column locking it in reverse. So now I get to see if I can fix that. Fortunately it is still on our lot although a little skewed parking wise. I don't care if I fix the van or not. I bought it 4 years ago for $300 and have only $87 in repairs tied up in it. I think I got my moneys worth considering all the drywall, wood and cement that it has hauled in the last few years. I'm surprised it has lasted this long!
I guess I should look on the bright side, I could be stripping paint off of woodwork!
