A day to forget.....

Oh dear it was one of those days you want to forget..............
it started off ok............I walked until Mr Chooky got the ute loaded and picked me up along the way...........
Really I was only going along for the ride with him to pic up a truck and for me to bring the ute back...............It was going to be 39 degC so we left early.............
I got some stitching done in the trip out.......
at this point on the way home it was still ok...........I was the gate girl also.......A job I detest..............but I got time to take these pics at one of the gates...........
Fences running either side long and straight as far as I could see...............
Then BAM the wheel fell off a trailer he was towing.........OMG...........
I couldn't stitch by this stage as I was so grotty helping.........
I did get to lay in the shade under the trailer for abit........
It was so boring.......could not even check out blogs, text or call anyone as there was ZERO mobile service............
2 hours later we were on the road again...........
Things were very iffy............we were "limping" to the next property.........
Just got into there place and the second wheel fell off.......There were nut and bolt issues.........but what should have taken an hour or two max took 5.........I was in walking gear as I was not doing farm work........i'm a little sunburnt as there were no trees........all the food was gone and I ran out of water..........
I finally got home and had a cold shower and vegged out for the last of the afternoon................
Catch you later...... Chookyblue.....

  10. Yikes, what was Mr Chooky Blue's mood like when the second wheel feel off? Think you might laugh about that when your 90 and in the nursing home...in the meantime might be good to forget it ever happened!

  23. Tell Mr Chook he better do some maintenance checks on those trailers before he takes our Chooky out there in that heat next time. Sounds like a hard day on the job to me!

  24. Yea, don't we all! It stinks that's for sure. With the heat you have been having, hydration is so important. Happy you did not have a heat stroke or something. Take care!
