    what a wonderful day!! one job turned out to be way more involved (read "took longer") than it appeared at first, then i broke a door glass out of a car with my weedeater when i was literally 6" from being done, then on the way home, one of my magnet signs came off my truck :blob2: :cry: . oh well, maybe today will be ok. at least i can get glass really cheap.

    Yeah that is the problem with magnetic signs, heat (like from the sun) kills magnets, they all come off sooner or later, I must've spent 3-400 on those things before I caught on.

    But don't feel too bad, my '98 has a case of bad Tecumseh (the 5-speed tranny), my echo srm-260s is still being fixed (it broke back in march), and the order of parts I put in and paid for 2 years ago (and totally forgot about) finally came in (and it's the wrong parts).
    Meanwhile, we got us an easy but persistent case of clover just about everybody's yard is covered and for some reason the crabgrass is really coming on STRONG this year as well, I can't mix the chems fast enough to keep up.

    As you might know, the truck's engine valve lifter that started ticking in May of last year still ticks and the truck transmission which should've failed 10 or 20 thousand miles ago is also still failing. Oh yeah, I got stung by two bees this week, both one day after the other, both on my right hand (one on my middle finger, don't laugh too hard it hurts lol).

    Everything else is fine thou, to be truthful I hardly even notice that stuff anymore lol.
