Chapter 20 - 2005 The Good The Bad and The Ugly

 Let’s get right to some Bad. We lost a family member over the holidays. It was a total shock as there was no prior illness. So, the next time somebody says to you that life is short, Ask them “what in the hell you do on this planet that lasts longer” That should shut them up.

  I also damn near lost my life in October, along with 4 young adults that were riding in a pick-up truck that decided to try and drive under my flatbed truck loaded with wine grapes while I was traveling at 50 miles an hour. Take a look at the pics. Everybody walked away without a scratch. I had a few seconds to decide that if I hit the door of the blue truck I was going to kill everybody in it. So I tried to run off the road on the right side. The only problem was the guy driving the blue truck never stopped coming across the highway. So life is not that short because mine and 4 others just got longer.

  Now some good. Remember last month’s tree falling. Well I brought some pics this month. The first set shows Chuck and I falling a large Cedar that was dead and could fall on my house. Carol is behind the camera and did a great job of capturing this, as Chuck and I were hiding behind some other trees. (WHAT? You think we’re stupid) Voices, you know they were quiet over the Holidays. Too bad they can’t stay that way. (Yes I know I’m deaf and slept most of the time because of the Knee surgery. It was quit peaceful in my head though.” Don’t even go there”.)

 Anyway back to the show. Chuck did a great job of back cutting this tree and that is why the fall was perfect. (Yes we will get to see my way of doing the same thing. Well not the same thing because my way tends put everybody in the dark). “Don’t you have a root canal scheduled or something” I really don’t need the input. So enjoy Carol’s shots while I try to get some ugly going.

 They say beauty is only skin deep but ugly goes all the way to the bone. (I don’t know who they are or where to find them, so shut up) Damn what was I going to” Carrooll” Sh-t, where is she. Oh, now I remember, this next pic is from my not so local LFS. This little guy roams the floor of Kevin’s shop. The first time I walked in and was browsing the tanks I did not pay a lot of attention to the floor until I damn near stepped on him. Levitation is a really neat experience. It is right up there with tap-dancing across the top of a room full of aquariums while screaming for your mother. This is a Monitor Lizard. I remember being the chalk board Monitor in school. Maybe that’s how I got so ugly. (Don’t say it)

  OK, Bad and Ugly describe this next set. Yes you guessed it. My tree falling inabilities at there finest. Take a look and compare mine with Chuck’s. Yes, now you know why Carol took all of the chain saw gas and put it in her truck. Hey I was born this way, what’s your excuse. 53 years and still setting records. Hello Guinness Book. Not. Never a dull moment. Of course Carol and the kids don’t get much time to relax when they see me walk out the door in my work clothes.” Man the battle stations” is there motto. I think they are overreacting.

 See Ya Next Month
