I woke up yesterday to my wife leaning over me saying "Happy Anniversary" and giving me a kiss. As I have stated on here before I am a stay at home dad and take care of my daughter during the day. While my wife was at work I had a buddy come over and work on my 100 dollar zero turn. During this time my little girl played out in the yard while we replaced the coil and jury rigged up a muffler that would work for now. Every once and a while my daughter would venture inside the building and grab a tool and was trying to help us work on the zero turn. After a few minutes we got the zero turn running and I had to lay her down for a nap. She slept about 30 minutes and my 'wish they were big' dogs started barking and woke the baby up so I had to come in and clean up. Once she woke up from her nap she played for a couple of hours and my wife got home. The wife stated if I wanted to I could go back outside and play for a while since her nap got cut short. After about 2 hours I placed the charger on the battery and I returned to the house to start on suppoer. I had a 18 oz Porterhouse steak and my wife had a 14 0z New York Strip. We also had baked potatos but my steak was so big that's all would fit on my plate so I started chowing down on my steak and returned for a baked potato. Well after eatting 18 oz of steak I settled into my recliner and started watching some random television shows but before long it was time for bed. I do not prefer leaving my battery charger on at night and decided I would make the trip back out to the building to unplug it. So I placed a pair of shorts, flip flips and a pull over jacket on and headed that way. I walked back outside, in the freezing weather, to the building and actually noticed I forgot to do a few other things before I headed in for supper. I had to turn the gas off to the Farmall and I unpluged the battery charger which only took 5 minute. When I stepped outside of the building I noticed the smell of a skunk. Not thinking anything about it I locked up mu building and started heading towards the house. I was about to step up onto the porch when a dog came out of no where and jumped up on me wanting to be rubbed.. Yes, as you probably guessed it, he had been just been sprayed by a skunk. He was literally dripping went with skunk musk. Luckily whenever he came towards me I anticipated him jumping on and he only got my hand with the musk. He was the friendliest dog in the world but not wanting to be covered in this musk I ran inside to get away from him. Im thinking god for us having some V8 because it took the smell right off my hands. I just basically poured the v8 over my hand and it was gone.
I must say this that true skunk musk smells differently than what I smelled going down the road. I know it was in the concentrated form on the dog.
