Today - My Bad Day

    What a day. First I slipped off the deck of my flatbed while I was refilling my water tank and landed on my back with my legs in the air - nifty move for a 58 year old. Then the starter rope broke on my line trimmer and disappeared into the recoil; one of the bolts on the starter was seized and I could not remove it to repair the cord. Whilst I was doing this the wind caught the rear door of my van and it clipped me on the head. Then whilst using a blade on my trimmer my leg disappeared two feet down a rabbit hole. I then decided this was definitely not my day and decided to pack up and go home before I got killed.
    Does anyone else have days like this?

    What a day ! I'm glad to hear you tossed in the towel for the rest of the day and from then on it was smooth sailin'.

    We all have days like that when nothing seems to go right. But look on the bright side -- there is tomorrow and everything may fall into place just right.

    Mowmaster, where abouts in the IOW are you? Just wondering.
    Nice place there, just spent a week on the tail end of cowes week just outside of Shalfleet, its great but its a long walk to find anything but a pub. We ended up thumbing lifts most the time.
