    Monday....July 4th did not work! :)

    Tuesday....Broke gear box/guard mount on string trimmer....$109 to replace. :rolleyes:

    Wednesday....Blew right rear trailer tire, destroyed right front and left rear limping the trailer along the highway to the tire shop.....$365 four new trailer tires. ;)

    Thursday....Alternator on 99' Ford F-250 decides to bite the bullet....$420 to replace. :cry:

    Thank God in spite of it all, I'm done for the week and going to Camden Yards tomorrow to see the Orioles beat the snot outta the Red Socks! :angel:

    New tires can blow out, maybe he hit something.

    Probably was cheaper to pay someone to change the alternator out than to do it himself or he was too busy. :rolleyes:

    Forgot to mention that the tire that blew was 3 day's old.

    And yes, after losing half a day yesterday to replacing tires and then having my truck completely die on me today at noon, I did not have the time to replace the alternator myself.

    Sorry about your week- BUT it's not going to get any better.
    The O's are going to get KILLED by the RED SOX :angry: :p

    At least no one was hurt during you ordeals. This week has been bad as well- rain rain and more rain. Joel
