WOW – what a day……………..

This is gonna be short Ya’ll………. we had a gentlemen on the first tour today that launched his machine off the road and dropped roughly 15′ into a washout/ravine kind of thing…….. I kid you not when I tell you – he should have died in this accident. He landed upside down with them machine on top of him at the bottom of that fall. All I can think of is “it wasn’t his turn to go”. He had one small scrape on his shoulder and even a smaller scrape on his neck….. that was it. As it turns out – I got tore up worse than him trying to get him out of his predicament.  Turns out there was part of a barbed wire fence down there where he landed and I got tangled up in it trying to get the machine off of him….. also apparently turns out…. those machines are MUCH heavier than I realized…. as I leaned into it to get it off of him enough to get his legs free….. I felt several ‘things‘ in my back doing stuff I’m pretty sure they shouldn’t have been doing.

To make a REALLY long story short – we got the guy back to the shop none the less for wear other than afore mentioned scratches….. we got the second tour done safely and satisfactorily, got the machine out of the ravine and risked the health of DD II – pulling that machine up out of that ravine. I have a kind of impressive ‘welt’ running up the center of my back that I am fairly sure is an out of place muscle… but 3 Anacin…. a couple of my Brides old issued muscle relaxers and a whole lot of vodka — I’m feeling fairly decent right now…. but really looking forward to going in and laying down in bed – because I ‘get’ to do it all over again tomorrow… woo-hoo~!

So I’m gonna quit right here….. muscle relaxers are really kicking in and it’s getting tougher to sit up right, right now……. I’ll be good in the morning. Night Ya’ll.

Good Night Ya’ll + + + + + + + + + +  Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
