    Yeah, well, I guess it would be... seeing as the wheels fell off! :hmm

    Yes, my chicken tractor was up on blocks this morning XD The bolts holding the wheels on bent (Wow!) and we had to jack the whole thing up, yank the wheels, and come up with a new solution. Thankfully Dad's nothing if not resourceful, and he got out his metal drills, set me up with some new holes in the wheel assembly and now 6 bolts hold them on rather than just two, which should keep it from rocking, so long as I treat it nice.

    Meanwhile, the chickens spent 4 hours laughing at us while we worked under their tractor.

    My roomie was already making snide jokes about them being "trailer trash" chickens because of the shape of the tractor (it really does look like a cheap house trailer). She'll probably hurt herself when she hears about this one XD

    I've had plenty of laughs here over the last four months, so I think it's only fair that I give some back when I have the chance [​IMG] It's kind of a way of sharing that none of us have it perfect, but we all keep chugging.

    Besides, everyone can use a little Schadenfreude in their day [​IMG]

    LOL, ain't that the truth.

    Though I think it would very much surprise my co-workers in IT [​IMG]
