Angry Yesterday Was A Shitty Day!

Went to bed Sunday night with plans to get up early Monday and get out to the shop to mount and balance two new tires on the LT! Well ya know what they say about the best laid plans etc. When I woke up Monday morning I had a slight tooth ache. Decide to call the dentist and he said come right over. Got to the office and after an x-ray and short exam the Dr says; Ummm not good. That's just what ya wana hear when sitting in the dentist chair! Anyway, he pulled the tooth and sent me on my way. Got home and said' OK now I can get to work on the bike. Changed my clothes and hit the head before going out to the shop. OH SHIT! Flushed the toilet and everything backed up into the shower. Called the honey dipper to come over and pump out the septic tank and find out that the drain field is plugged solid. Spent this morning visiting several county and state offices in order to get the necessary paper work and permits just so some inspector can come out and say; Yep, ya need a new drain field! Anyway, the good news is that I think I can get out into the shop after lunch and finish putting the new shoes on the bike! Things gotta get better, right?

Sounds like a crappy day.

Like David said, too much time on the throne and not enough time on the bike!

Hope your day gets MUCH better.

The rumor that I caused all that to happen just because you ran into my K12GT is not true. Or ... if I covered my butt properly, you can't prove it!
Better days are ahead, my friend ...
