After parking for the night, we'll still have time for a little racing

I Broke The Beast!

I know that I need help with backing up. I can't even back my little tiny Toyota up in an empty parking lot. I don't know what made me think I could back up a 34 foot RV into a narrow opening between 2 trees, on a curve, on a single lane street, with cars parked on either side. What was I thinking? Or in this case, why wasn't I thinking?

Anyhow, I heard a crunch and noticed that the back bumper seemed a little more prominent than usual. Sure enough, it was cracked from top to bottom. Thank heavens it's a silvery color - the duct tape actually seems to blend in. My brother is going to fix it with zap straps, he says.

On the up side, the weekend was spectacular. The weather couldn't have been better. My bro, SIL and I had a lovely long weekend, played card games, putter pool, sat in the hot tub, and even had a great turkey dinner. Bro indulged in marathon wood chopping sessions - he hasn't said so, but we think he's training for next year's Lumberjack contests. 

What more could you ask? Except maybe a new bumper. Sigh....


  1. We all have our moments. I hit my house and I was going straight forward. :()

  2. Lol! I haven't done that yet, but it's just a matter of time.
