Well we all have them and today must have been my turn. Fist thing this morning my neighbor called and told me that one of "her" cows was in trouble. Sure enough she was trying to give birth and the calf was in the wrong position. After a couple of hours of really nasty work we managed to get her into the corral and "re-position" the calf and pull it out..with the help of a come-along. Talk about nasty work..you don't even want to know how deep your arm can go into a cow.
Finished that and had to hurry to make a doctors appointment a little over an hours drive away. Got through that with out any trouble but it wasn't even 2PM yet. Since today was slated to be one of the first days over 90° I decided to close up the house and turn the A/C on. Humidity was through the roof. When I got home the A/C was running but it was 86° inside. Called a repairman around 5PM and he said he would be out in a little while. At 8:40PM he still hadn't shown up or called. It was sultry and my day hadn't gotten any better so Mary and I went to town to make a quick stop and get a Blizzard. About 6 miles from home a little spike buck decided he liked my truck and managed to head on me at 60mph. We just got home and it's after 10PM. Still no A/C and he may show up tomorrow afternoon....forecast temperatures are for the mid to upper 90's all week. I may go cry myself to sleep outside where it's not quite as hot...after I fill out all the accident paper work so I can go see the insurance company in the morning. Left wheel is rubbing some, bumper is bent all to h#!!, but we didn't get hurt so it could be a lot worse.
Sorry Doug, I've been in that same "position" with the cow...and I do know how far an arm can go, we had to enlist the help of a john deere and some tow chain with that calf! Hope everything is well and your days get better! Wife and I say bad things come in three's, so with that said, you should probably be good for a while!

Thanks Adam but I think I need to stick around here. Need to check on the calf and get my "poop in a group" and head to the body shop and insurance company this morning so I can come back home and sweat out the A/C repairman getting here.
Like everything else, "This too shall pass". Just hope no one gives me a hassle today.
Sometimes we are just tested. Sounds like this was your day for it. I pray that today will be a better day for you. Been there too many times not to feel for you.
