I learned an important lesson yesterday.
Night before last Steph brought me a treat a box of cherries. They were good.
Yesterday morning we were up at 450. Too early.
We were at the train station at 6. They boarded at 630. I headed home.
Once I got home at 745, I found something out. Something I wish I had known earlier. Something that was not fun at all.
Cherries are closely related to prunes. And as such they have the same effects on human physiology. Yes, my colon is clean now. Very clean. Very Very clean.
It was about 3 before I was back to normal. Well, normal-ish. I was pretty tired
WHen the all clear was sounded (pun intended) I went outside to get TheKracken hooked to the trailer. As I was struggling with that, Emily got home. I had her back the truck up. It made things much easier.
She changed quickly and headed off to work.
I left for the DMV. I got there, walked in the door, saw the line, and walked back out. I didn't feel like standing for 2 hours.
I went up to Autozone and got spot mirrors for TheKracken. I then proceeded to put them on the mirrors in the wrong spot. I put them on the bottom inside corner. I have no idea what I was thinking. I blame it on the cherries.
I decided to head on up to Hickory and poke around at Northern Tools.
I found a replacement head for the ratcheting breaker bar.
Then I moseyed on across 40 to Statesville. By the time I got there the mirrors had sufficiently driven me bonkers that I stopped and got another set and a scraper. With the mirrors properly installed in the upper outside corner I headed on to the old JR cigar building.
I stopped and put a quarter tank of fuel in the CubCadet. It was a whole $.50.
At JR I got the Cub fired up and it idled perfectly. I let it run for a minute then shut it off.
About 15 minutes later the other guy got there. We both had an hour drive to get there.
After the customary bull session and inspecting the tractors we agreed on a trade.
He got the better end of a straight trade. His Craftsman gt5000 for my Cub. As far as the trade goes I got the short end. However, I have been trying to sell the Cub for months and had no bites. The Craftsman I can sell.
I was home by about 8. I fed the bunnies and headed in. I heard BettyBlue come around the corner as I grabbed the door knob.
As I walked in the house I heardthe engine on BB reving over and over. I was confused till I walked out front and saw she had driven it a bit too far down the hill and could not get her to back up. Since Betty is a one wheel drive she likes to get stuck.
I went out and took over and got her back on firm ground in a few seconds.
I came in, exhausted, and grabbed a couple of slices of left over pizza and headed off to shower.
I was in bed a short time later.
