    Murphy's Law Defied

    I was eating breakfast with my wife, enjoying a bagel with cream cheese, when it slipped out of my hand and landed on the floor, under Lynn's chair. And guess HOW it landed. Cream cheese up! That'll never happen again!

    Man... I coulda used that kinda luck yesterday. Got a call at 3:15 yesterday about a manhole that was backed up, so I took the jetter (large trailer w/ a 700gal water tank, 475' of hose, and a root cutting device on the end of the hose) to clean the line. Unfortunately... it wasn't roots blocking the line. Darn thing had frozen solid 60' from the manhole for a distance of about 62'. Had to have a septage pumper stand by to pump water from the jetter out of the manhole. It took 7 loads of water. I didn't get home 'til 11:40 last night. Now I know where my luck went, Jim.

    The outcome would have been different if it was buttered...

    A lotto ticket is the antithesis of "a penny saved, is a penny earned". As it turned out, it was the prelude to bad things associated with my oldest kid and my plant collection. See other topic on 'kid killing plants'!
