Bad Day

Usually, it could be worse...



Bad day

Flat tire on tobacco wagon
Just to improve your outlook on life a little, here are a couple of photos of someone else's bad day.

This big trailer, loaded down with tobacco, was on the way to the barn when one of its tires went flat. By the time the driver got it off the highway, something -- probably the wheel -- was leaving a deep track in the road surface.

On the bright side, at least there was a fairly flat spot to pull over. And at least, it wasn't an inside dual!

The driver jacked up the corner of the trailer, took off the remains of the old tire, unhitched his pickup truck, and went somewhere to get a replacement.

The trailer was still there when I passed by again, but it was gone the next day.

Everyone has frustrating days when Murphy's Law prevails. Even here in the Shire, things don't always go as smoothly as we wish they would.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
