    Default Or not such a great start....

    When its gonna be a bad day, its just gonna be a bad day.
    to start off, when I got up at 7 it was snowing like crazy. no sweat, I said, the tracks will be covered up but I'll just wait till this afternoon to set out my line, give things a chance to move around a bit, ya know?

    well at 9 after chores and breakfast I go to make a pack basket. well, the basket I was gonna use was full of meat cause were butchering out cow. Thats ok, I'll just use a little 4 gallon wicker basket and make straps out of duck tape, that way I can just cut it off when I'm done. no problem. its pretty tough and I won't have much weight in it. Uhhh huu

    well I pull my shoulder out of the socket when the compression "built" on my 4 wheeler when I was trying to pull start it...cause the starter sylinoid went out on it.

    I head out on snowshoes about 1 and I slip,landing on my bad arm, dumping my whole load. about a half mile from the house the back strap on my right snowshoe gives out. no problem, I can keep goin with out them, well all that wallowing made my pack start to break....so I head back, and after I cross a swamp I start up a hill (the same one I slipped on on my way out. I fall again dumping my pack. Well that didn't go so well, so I go to set some beaver and muskrat traps at a lake I saw some in this spring bear hunting. so I load up a milk crate with some traps and other gear, and head out with my gun, so there I am, join 20 MPH down the road holding a box of traps and gear and a gun in one hand and driving the 4 wheeler with the other.....I forgot my fur hat. Eh, I'll just tough it out....a couple miles later, I had enough of that means how the temperature was dropping fast. by the time I got back I had frost bit my ears.

    so after I warm up I head over to my neighbors to butcher chickens and plow, after I got done with the chickens it was dark and I was kinda tired and kinda mad cause it didn't go well, so I start plowing and she said to push the burn as far to the left as i can...she didn't tell me about the drop off.....once I got that un buried she told me "Don't hit the supporting posts!!!!", cause that beam(for a balcony) weighs 3000 lbs...so whats the first thing I do? why I hit the only post holding up the right side of said 3000 lb beam. so she is kinda freaking out, and with 3 months of building houses under my belt, I decided to fix it by my self and not get my dad (with 15 years experience) cause I had messed up allow this week and he was Maaaadd and he had just had a surgery earlier today so he really wouldn't be in a good mood. well lets just say after a while I braced it so it wouldn't drop any further and let it be.


    so needless to say I didn't get a line out.

    Patrick McManus came to mind immediately upon reading that.

    Sorry for your day man, but thanks for the smile.

    Oh, and I'm just kinda silent when I get home, dad asks how it went. "It went" I say. then hurry and take off my boots and coat and go and make some dinner. just when I think i got away with it (as I was typing this out) the phone rings. mom talks for maybe 5 minutes, and then hangs up and says "CameRon, did you break something at the Hall's tonight?" And I said, NOooooo I didn't break nothin. (which is true) the only thing I'm concerned about is I called my boss (also my dads boss) and asked him for ideas on how to fix it and he just cracked up....I have a feeling dad is gonna walk in the door tomorrow and ask "CameRon, come over here" and well, I'm sure you guys will know what hens from there. HaHaHa
