On occassion, it actually rains in this part of the world. This weekend, it happened. It started raining Saturday afternoon and kept at it until Sunday morning. There are 2 inches in the rain gauge. The only thing that keeps it from being a perfect rain is that it is a couple of weeks late getting here. But, we will take it.
And with the rain, other issues happen. Saturday evening, I was on the couch watching some tv. I heard a vehicle coming down our road. Who the heck? I looked out the window to see a little, silver 4 door Ford car heading west. I thought to myself, “I hope that don’t try to go on west down that road.” They did. It is a known fact that when it is wet, that you don’t want to go west of our place as the road gets really slickery.
I moved to a different window for a better vantage point and sure enough, some lady was now out in the mud, surveying her situation. I went to Duke’s room, who was watching the all time great John Wayne movie, The War Wagon. I asked if her heard that. He said, “Yep, I bet they are stuck.” So we grabbed some chains and put the pickup into 4 wheel drive and headed out into the rain and mud.
We got her unstuck, but it wasn’t fun. These new cars have NO place to hook a chain. And there dang sure isn’t any push points. I ended up covered in mud as I had to get down low in order to get it hooked up. It happens.
Some days just end up better than others. There was a wedding in OKC this weekend. And somebody’s favorite daughter flew in for it. Tammy went to the wedding and brought Kela home for a few days until she has to head back west.
Lots of stuff on the calendar this week. A busy week keeps me out of trouble.
