    Watch what you say Peter. Somehow it'll be your fault for not grinding that stump.

    That's what I was thinking, probably find a way to blame him anyway.

    Had a really good day until coming home changing gears got a bit strange. 4th 5th & reverse. Got here carefully. Slave cylinder maybe, I hope it's not worse.

    Yes. Hope so as well.

    I remember my friend in high school telling me about mowing through a ditch with a push mower. Somehow it got away from him and rolled back over his foot. Took the top of his sneaker off with no damage to his foot. Sobering even for me as a kid.

    That's insane.
    Mastery is an illusion, grace a momentary gift, apprenticeship endless.

    A training partner of mine lost his toes to a lawn mower.
    Didn't improve his karate any.

    I actually had a nice, courteous encounter with a Sheriff's Deputy just now.

    Mom called and said a car had wrecked on our road. Went and checked it out, had my jump kit in case someone was hurt.

    No one around so I called it in.

    Deputy came out and looked it over. Nice, pleasant fellow.

    Yes, sir....thank you sir......have a nice day sir.

    Nice guy.
    Winter is coming.

    Nothing better than a positive encounter with Johnny Law.

    I will have to admit. It has been a really long time since I have been pulled over. 12 years or so.

    I still jumped a bit when he pulled up and turned on his lights!

    Can't help that reaction, I think.
    As in: " What the f. did I do wrong"

    Got pulled over in San Francisco a couple of years ago.
    Lights, siren and all.
    Guy claimed I ran a semi red light, which I most likely did.
    They change much slower here, so it takes a bit of practice to get used to Ca traffic lights, just like it takes a bit to get un-used to doing a "right on red" when I come back.

    I told him that I was driving an unfamiliar car, in an unfamiliar city after a 12 hour plane ride, so could he maybe give me a break.

    He ended up driving ahed of me to show me the way out of the city, going north.

    That really made my day

    I was pulled over by an American cop in Sydney once, a really muscled up beefcake. Being a watcher of the show "Cops" it felt a bit surreal at the time.
