    I hope things turn around soon. I was headed to Danville, VA. this weekend to meet a BOC brother and do some fishing while my wife visited her family there. Well as some of you already know, Chris, (Dreamer34), had a death in the family and so we didn't get to meet after all. The funeral was Saturday which was also the 6th anniversary of the death of my wife's father. We went to put flags and flowers on the grave.
    We spent the afternoon at the VFW having a picnic with my wife's family and alot of Veterans and then went to spend the night with my wife's cousin Vickie. She lives on a 895 acre farm with a lake and 4 ponds. We loaded up in a Kowasaki "Mule" to go see the lakes and watch the sun go down. Vickie slipped getting down from the Mule and went down hard. It turns out she broke her hip. After a great struggle, we got her back to the house, loaded her in a vehicle and took her to the hospital. She went into surgery today to put 2 pins in her hip. The wife and I desided to cut our trip short and head home before anything went wrong. I think I'll stay indoors the next couple days!

    Gosh, Billie, I believe with that kind of luck I'd stay indoors for a while too. Sorry to hear about your wife's cousin, Vickie. We'll be praying for a quick recovery. Breaking your hip isn't any fun and the recovery isn't easy either. Sorry you and Chris didn't get to meet up, but I'm sure you will sometime soon. Try to enjoy the upcoming holiday!

    Tanya, I totally agree with you. I think I'd spend a day or so in the house till this bad luck thing ends. Hope your wife's cousin get healed quickly.

    Hey Arlington, if you wouldn't have been using her for a cushion to sit on while you fished, she probably wouldn't have minded so much. ROFLOL

    Willie, sorry to hear about your weekend and prayers sent to you and yours.
    CAUTIN:Stayaway from fireworks. Find a nic shallow small pond and catch something. It always makes me feel better to have a jerk on the other end of the line.

    Things are still going wrong! my wife tried to go to work this morning and the car was making a racket. I thought it was the alternator so i went and got a new one and installed it. That wasn't it. Seems the water pump is about to go and we'll have to wait until Wed. to get that fixed. When I got back from working on the car and doing some work for a customer, the house was really hot. It's been in the upper 90's outside. Turns out the AC went out! I finally found a switch bad on it and repaired that so it's starting to cool off a bit. Vickie's surgery went well but of course she is still in alot of pain. They put two screws in her hip. She has been ordered to stay off her leg for at least 4-6 weeks. What will it be next?
