Tell the parents "Grats' for me BC...
I would be leery of allowing a herding dog to herd poultry. Besides mine really do not need herding. Wherever I go they follow. If I am in the shed working on machinery, they are in the shed. If I go to the garden they go to the garden. I come out the door they come running to greet me.
And these are birds I do not hold, or pet, I feed them. They will do anything for a tasty morsel. even when they do not need it.
I have to relate a small story. I am going to see the Dr shortly. I will be confessing to being a "real Man".
I bought a table for my miter saw. It is a cool table on wheels that can roll anywhere I need it and has those nifty rollers on it for holding the boards level. I convinced Judy I need it. She has some trim work she thinks is high time that it gets done. I told her this would make it go faster and get done sooner. I am not so sure of that anymore.
I got a De Walt table from Runnings. It requires some set up. I do not like instructions and seldom read them. Who needs stinking instructions?
I opened the box and laid all the pieces out. The main table was tied down/shut with cable ties. I cut the ties and stood the table on it's edge. Then I tried to figure out how to open it so I could assemble it. I could not find a way to do this. Then I found a little lever, I pushed the lever. The table flew open. Hitting my ankle right on the ankle bone that sticks out. I went down like a lead balloon. The pain and tears were instantaneous. The pain....... I thought I broke my leg. I got up and could stand on it....I walked around and worked the pain out. BTW It still hurts...
I have a huge bruise on the ankle, it looks nasty....
After the incident I decided to "look" not read, but look, at the instructions. In big bold letters it says " DO NOT CUT THE CABLE TIES UNTIL THE TABLE IS ASSEMBLED OR INJURY COULD RESULT"
Why didn't they tell me that before I cut the ties?
BTW I am not going to the Dr over my episode of stupid, but I bet he will ask about it..
