The Crud, TV Towers And An Outhouse. That's All

Got a touch of the crud here today, hit me yesterday evening and kept me up most of the night. We take a lot of Airborne and it does a real good job of keeping us healthy, but I lapsed on it a few days and got the snotty nose and cough and ucky feeling. So I've had it about 24 hours now and I'm ready for it to be gone. I'm real patient with the crud.

We got the Christmas decorations and lights all taken down off the house today, real warm all day long so it was the perfect day for doing this. I'd take days like today for the rest of winter, but that ain't gonna happen, we've got January to deal with.

Tomorrow after chores I'm helping my buddy Gary with putting up his new TV tower. He got a screaming deal on a (get this LOL) 85 foot tower. I think Sal is gonna be videoing this trainwreck. Neither one of us has done this before, so it oughta be good... we usually have fun.

Gary is the guy that needed an outhouse for his hunting camp. I'm the guy that owned an outhouse... a rare commodity in this day and age, indeed. Gary came over with his tractor and loaded the crapper on the back of his tractor. Meanwhile he spotted an old air compressor tank in my pile of goodies that he thought would make an excellent BBQ grill or something like that, at the camp as well. We threw that in the bucket of the loader on the tractor. Then we took pictures of him as he drove off with a backhouse strapped to the back of his tractor... 'cause, well... that's what friends do you know. This is one of the presentable pictures where he's not giving me the hand signal for "You're number one!".

Looking at this picture just makes me wish I had more outhouses to give away, the comedy potential is endless.

Welp, here's to high adventure and overwhelming entertainment tomorrow! :-)

Tee Hee Hee, thanks for the giggle.

You know, in a comical way there's just something inherently wrong when a guy gives up a perfectly good crapper and air compressor tank and then provides the tractor and fuel to relocate said treasures. LOL!!

Great blog, Cowpie, I mean Cowguy. :)

OMG, ROFLOL! Poor Gary! Bet he never counted on having it put in bloggerland for posterity! All it needs is a crescent moon cut in the door!

I've got to remember not to read your blog right before bedtime. I'm going to be giggling all night! (Hugs)
