took a few days off. got a bunch of work around the house done this morning. took a nice nap. my thinking was to go crappie fishing tonight. got me a half pound of minnows. hooked up the boat and headed out about 7:00 pm. got a half mile down the road and had smoke boiling off my tire. broke a leaf spring. the tire was rubbing on the fender. got back home and began taking things a part. man was it hot. this full figured fella was melting like a snowball on the southside of you know where. anyway i'm thankful i was so close to home. things can always be worse.
