That can't be me. That guy's got a smile on his face. :(

I had trouble all day yesterday trying to open up the pool. The day ended and I couldn't keep the water flowing through the pump. Air is somehow getting in and it loses all pressure. The wife texted me this morning asking me it I got it going since she knew I was waking up early today to work on it. I responded NO. Her response then was... 'If you don't get the pool running what's the plan for Sunday. I texted back 'TAHITI!' :(

Thursday at the home improvement center I was helping push a zero turn tractor I sold onto a customer’s trailer. Those things are incredibly hard to steer by just pushing. I told him I had to reposition it before we pushed it up onto the trailer. As soon as I got it into position he didn’t wait and starting pushing it up. My hand got caught between a front wheel and the housing and I broke a finger. He was extremely sorry and said he would talk to the employer about what happened for a workers comp claim. I told him not to worry about it because I wouldn’t be filing a claim as I was still battling with a health care provider from a workers comp claim over two years now from a BBQ grill that fell on me that the HR person completely screwed up the papgerwork and then left the job... and I’m not going through that again. I informed the store manager what had happened and got Saturday off. So on Saturday I was mowing the property with the tractor and half way though the process the front wheel breaks off from metal fatigue and goes rolling downhill. I got a new wheel yesterday and will be repairing the thing over the weekend. 2020 is turning out to be a real sucky year. :(

LOL. Nope, the one next to it.

We hosted a small family get-together and BBQ on Memorial Day. My brother’s family really needed it. My niece’s 18 month-old son had an adult size cancerous tumor removed off his spine the week before. Doctors hoped they got it all but only time will tell. The little guy was a bit irritable at times but he booked around the house and backyard the entire day and was mostly happy. Everyone seemed to have a fun day.
