One of Those Days

Ever had one of those days when try as you might, you just can’t finish anything on your plan of work?

I started my morning working on writing a white paper for local control of natural resources. My son awoke, I fixed him breakfast and settled back in. No sooner had I sat down, I received a call from a gentleman with unbelievable scientific knowledge. Needless to say, the call lasted an hour and fourty three minutes. I got my son dressed and dropped off at his grandparents. The white paper was stalled.

When I got home, I fired up the chainsaw and dropped three dead oak trees for winter fire wood. Before I could finish getting them de-limbed, I had gone through three chains. I took the chains in to be sharpened and bought a fourth chain. Shortly after re-starting my woodcutting I blew a hole in the diaphragm of the carb of the chainsaw. Wood cutting stalled.

I called to see where the swather was to pick it up to finish cutting third cutting here at home. Left to pick it up and got a call that it won’t be ready until tomorrow. Hay cutting stalled.

I went to pick up the trailer at my parents to haul weaned heifer calves to the scale and get weaning weights. After hooking up to the trailer I realized it had a flat and the spare was flat. Weighing calves stalled.

I’ve resolved to go back to fixing fence. I have plenty of clips, wire and posts.

I’m certain their is a song that can be written about this experience, perhaps even a rap, but I’m to tired to think about it. LOL

    There have been songs about it Jeff, but they keep changing the lyrics while keeping the tune… Mama’s don’t let your cowboys grow up to be plumbers…I’m just ropin in the rain are but two.
