Non hunting ...the blessings we need to count

Postby msbadger » Thu Jan 08, 2009 2:10 pm

Well as I've mentioned.....I'm accident prone and well always having close calls to boot...Been sick since Christmas eve and just getting lungs back so haven't left house since before Christmas...Yesterday I decide to go to town...looked at gas gage on the way down drive ..nearly full so never look again...drive the 15 miles to town and at stop sign a guy with very concerned look drives around next to me in other lane ...motioning to roll down window...Hey there's gas pouring out of your car...Oh my God...he drives away and I get to nearest parking lot and away from other cars and buildings...you can see the stream of gas that was following me and the puddle under car ...still dripping...call Mr. B ...he comes to town and says how bad...... I'm not starting it it's over muffler...we push car away from puddle area and he starts it...looked like some one pouring out a jug of water!...turns off car and I tow him to the shop.....blown out gas line the tank had just over 1/4 left...I'm counting my blessings today once again...[;)]

Glad to hear it worked out for ya!
I hear ya, it always seems like something is going on. You gotta look at what you've been blessed with.That always outweighs the negatives.

Hey, at least it wasn't $4 a gallon gas! [:D]
