well there have been a couple personal setbacks that are costing me both time and money…
i got hit with a steel band close to my eye at work, it got me just under the safety glasses! i am a very cautious person, and had i not been wearing my eyes… well you all know! that happened last Wednesday and after a long relaxing weekend i am happy to be seeing much better, but have still not been quite up to par.
then my truck got attacked by a 3/4” bolt to my drivers side rear BFG tire on a bridge on Rt.86, which is 65mph. My wife was driving, but i wouldn’t let her change that under those circumstances, i didn’t want to! But the short distance traveled to the nearest exit at just 45mph in 65+mph traffic was enough to toast my AAMerican made rear limited slip differential! How weak is that? The spare was later sized ONLY 9/16 difference, it was new, and hadn’t been rotated in, and while off it should be nothing to be seriously concerned about for ~10mi! The tire was garbarge, but the best part is that BJ’s changed their road hazard policy, and mysteriously “Couldn’t find your details in our computer” despite me having in my hands a nearly blank receipt which wasn’t good enough! The blank thermal receipt really makes me mad, disappearing ink should not be allowed, no matter how fancy your stores POS computer is!
No blame can be laid on anyone except the jerk who lost a 3/4” bolt on the thruway, i just really hope i can get back on track in my dust and complete my current wood project… a “Pub Table”, which incidentally is ‘an occasional table’ however i plan to use it all year round!
after this past week i really wish i could sit at it today and have a nice handful of drinks!!
