Oh my...what a morning!

Clay headed out to work this morning & his car wasn't wanting to start....he thinks the battery is dying. No big deal...he's just gonna roll down the hill & jump it into gear. So, I kiss him good-bye & come back to the 'puter to finish my morning chat with Maw & next thing I know, he's coming in the back door telling me to grab the camera! I could tell it wasn't anything terrible because he was grinning & hollering for the kids to come see! I grab my camera & run out the back door....in my PJs, no less & this is what I see..........................Now, I'm just laughing thinking what's the big deal.....he got the car sideways in the drive. But look closer....................
The stump they had used the other night to sight in their guns had rolled just enough to be right in the edge of the drive & lo & behold his little Bug of a car rolled right over that sucker & got hung up!!! The whole back end of it totally OFF the ground! Too, bad we couldn't send this in to AFV!! Well, he & Jon are trying to figure out how they're going to lift this just enough to get the stump out from under it when we hear a truck coming. Clay is dying of embarrassment.....especially when we realize that it's Mason & Philip coming to work on the barn! LOL If only you could've seen the look on Mason's face when he realized what had happened. I've never seen him laugh so hard before!!!

The good thing was that they had all the equipment right over here handy since they were working on the barn. So Philip just hopped on the back hoe & lifted the car just enough for Clay to roll the stump out from under it.


And again....the car wouldn't start, so he backed it up & Mason & Jon had to give him a push down the hill to get him going! What a way to start a Saturday morning! One of the benefits of living out in the country though....having relatives/neighbors right nearby with heavy equipment on hand to help out in emergency situations!!

You've trained your hubby well! The first words out of his mouth were "get the camera!" I LOVE IT! I'm glad I'm not the only one with stories like this!
