No T part here yet! Got up, got dressed & fed and out the door to to my first piano tuning of the week. Hmm, don't remember the driveway being that bumpy. YOICKS! Rear tire is flat. OK, call client, leave message that I will at least be a bit late. Find battery powered tire inflator (Shop air compressor too far away) Tire pumps up, OK, might be able to drive to tire shop, have wife back truck up, don't see any nails, BUT when putting valve cap back on, OH! a valve stem leak! OK, Leave another message for client with my cell number. Jump in truck and head to tire shop (thinking, "that tire is worn enough they probably won't want to repair it.")-about halvway there, Uh oh, tire flat again & I left the compressor at home. OK, nice asphalt here, better than my driveway dirt, dig out jack, etc. and put on spare, which is also only about half-full. Client calls my cell & we arrange another day for the tuning. Tire shop sells me 2 new tires (other back tire as worn as this one). So $$$ later, I stop at store for the essentials: Milk, Bread--oh, NO TP needed, OK. The open check-stand is #13. Hmmmm. . . .
This is not the best way to start a day!! To be safe, I'll not work on the T today, but I can read the TWO T mags that came in the mail today! Besides, it's raining!
Hey, y'all's family, had to share!
Better day Tomorrow.
Two model T magazines, and an excuse to sit and read them? Sounds like a good day to me.
Mama said there be days like that just not so many of them
Better luck tommerow
New skids? Food and TP. Good mags? Great day. A nice nap and its perfect.
Drive safe and often
Thanks guys. I got an email today from the church telling me that the past few week's sermons are available for download. "Hmm" I said to myself, "Downloads to nap by!"
Father O'Malley answers the phone. 'Hello, is this Father O'Malley?'
'This is Special Agent Johnson with the IRS. Can you help us?'
'Do you know a Ted Houlihan?'
'Is he a member of your congregation?'
'Did he donate $10,000 to the church?'
Want to have a bad day that started good? ----------try replacing a serpentine belt on your brides car in a rain storm at the coast! Did that in a parking lot last week.
Duey...misery loves company!
Tim do you still own that dog?
Tom...well,ha ha, actually we DID have a dog exactly like the looks of that one..and just about as mean. Part Beagle, part Shepherd. Colors of a Shephard, just like above. Hated all men, and most adults. Loved kids under the age of 20. Fortunately she like me and the wife!
They make great dogs Tim. My wife has three shepherds. All trained in bite work. Keeps vacume cleaner salesmen and Johovas witness from knocking on the door. Great family dogs but strangers not so much.
LOL Dallas! How true! The wife always said how she liked "Pepper" as she kept everyone away! She was a really great dog, drop dead gorgeous colors, what with Beagle and Shepherd mix. She just hated most people. But she loved my lap! All 52 pounds of her. Our current dog needs A-A, she can't hold her licker!!
My wifes 1 yr old shepherd thinks the only reason for my existance it to entertain him. Wont leave me alone. The others could care less about me but not Ayce. We have one that cant walk by without taking a lick also. Licks anybody close.
