    had a month of em... my mare colicked and almost died twice... I hit a mailbox at 35 mph and almost broke my arm (on bike).... Fell downstairs in my boat and damaged other arm, almost knocked myself out with a post hole digger.... It hit me upside the head in the soft part of the temple and I stagger 3 steps and almost blacked out....Left quite an egg and then I got Salmonella poisoning.... I think I am in the running.... Oh and peeled the roof of the house to have the contractor reschedule for a day AFTER the rains are supposed to hit... apparently he needs to get enough money to buy the materials!!! Not looking so good here...Nothing like spending the week using your bad arms to throw roofing into the dumpster in 100 degree weather!

    Is this the kind of "time" you are talking about???

    I can't claim a chain of events like that but ...... two friends came up to me separately in a restaurant one evening to tell me how ill they had been and kindly coughed around me to prove it. Three days later I was down with an awful 'flu like head cold that needed antibiotics. It lasted for more than a week but in the first few days I also got a really strange headache that I was told must be a migraine. The two things together were a nightmare that stopped be doing my job as a seven day a week retiree. I'm still not back to normal but I have struggled back to the job like a hero.

    My worst days come when we have a power cut. Everything at home is electric apart from the charcoal barbeques that we have around the place. Even the water pressure is from an electric pump. I have a cunning plan, as they say, for those days. I can book into a decent hotel not far away with guaranteed power, satellite tv, a/c, a pool, driving range and a great restaurant for about US$35.

    As the song goes, 'Always look on the bright side of life'. You could be stuck 700 metres down a Chilean mine until Christmas with some of those neighbours that people keep moaning about on here.


    'What would you like for Christmas, my love?'

    'A shower!'

    I have had them and kept telling myself I just needed to get home.Ofcourse then I realised so much of the bad things happen at home too!

    I just try and take a *moment* to calm myself and say,"So what" before making things right.As long as no one dies we are doing good.

    First I got this cold that refused to go away, then just as I was recovering I got food poisoning and spent a day throwing up, and as soon as it finally started to get better my cold hit again and I started coughing my lungs up.

    Thank goodness it's all over now, but it seems as soon as one problem goes more come along for you to worry about.

    Yeah, that mine thing's all over the news. It's taking 2 months to get them out?! [​IMG]
    boy I'm glad I'm not down there.

    Sounds like Murphy's Law is out in full force. I've been laying wood floor in most of my house for the last 4 days, & my knees are about to fall off, but ........the day is still good. Sorry [​IMG]
