WHAP! Slurp WHAP! Slurp WHAP!

Thats the sound of whackin my head with the rubber mallet in 1 hand and imbibing from a medicinal Tommy knocker in the other.

Arrrrrrrrghhhhhh...

First, the black paint for my saddle bags, out of two cans labeled identically, was not identical paint. Supposed to be satin black... one was closer to semi gloss while the second was nearer to flat.
The consequence being a very different finish... grrrrr... and being an epoxie... now I have to wait another week, before I can repaint...

Then...made the fateful choice to replace my broken and dying phone... annnnd... the quickly to follow, wearing out air card...

You know, every time they "improve" something it takes on another layer of obfuscation, that's unmodified recycled bovine manufactured fertilizer for you scientifically enhanced types.
Then, they "Save" you money... uh huh... riiiiiight...

How come ever' time somebody saves me money or does me a favor I wake up bruised broke and pregnant?

Yeah, so after struggling for most the day to get the "easy" upgraded hardware to function, I thought I'd go hang the pipes on the bike...

... yup... you guessed it right... the pipes I took off that Yamaha my self a few weeks ago... will NOT go back on. No matter how I wiggle curse and threaten... there's one nut that no tool I have can reach!!! Arrrrrrrghhhh!!!

What the @!!!%@$# !!!! I took them off my self! I KNOW this because I was there!

Well now, what does a properly fed up and exasperated puss gut mountain cowboy do in such a situation? I'll tell you... he breaks open a bottle of medicinal ale... and cools out...

... so to the fridge I go...

Wait for it...

EEEEEEEiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!

No Beer!!!

The Only thing that fell into place without a hitch...This... day, was my Lil liquor store down the road was open on Sunday evening!

I am NOW lowering my blood pressure and knocking stuff loose...

WHAP! Slurp WHAP! Slurp

I always thought it was dumb that we couldn't buy beer in Colorado on Sundays; sure glad we can now.

As my wife frequently reminds me, those are "First World" problems. It always puts things in perspective.
