Have you ever had a week that you could redo???

Last week-Dryer tensioner pully went out

Saturday- Just after we get home from picking up the dryer at the repair shop Ian knocks a half case of gatorade off shelf and it lands on hotwater heater and bust a pipe.

Notice the messy but effective repair

Monday- Went out to car to head to work and battery dead. Hooked up the battery charger and went back in house. 15-20 minutes later I heard something outside and looked out window to find car on fire.

Can I go back to bed yet???????/

I have had weeks like that. I believe He was trying to get my attention. I will add you to my prayers.

I guess you know what your next woodworking project will be – a car! Chamfer the front real good for better aerodynamics, hardwood bumpers but softwood seats, inlayed pinstriping.

Of course, it would have to be a Flintstone car. An engine in one of those is a bonfire waiting to happen!

WOW…TOUGH WEEK. But look at the bright side: No loved one’s got hurt and there does not appear to be any damage to “The Shop”. Good luck recovering from the events. By the way, did you have to call out your friends from the Firehouse? I’m sure this will be a topic of discussion around the station for a while.

Well that was rough, but looking at the bright side – the car wasn’t parked in the garage.

You have my sympathies that was a tough situation. But no one was hurt or injured and, as Bill said, the car was outside. Rough week, sure, but material things can be replaced. Just be thankful that no one was hurt.

Thanks for sharing.

Sheesh, those weeks are tough. Go buy a lotto ticket, it might just be the turnaround and the end of a really crazy story.

Ground hog day. After that run of bad luck, just think of the good things that are on the way.
