So how could flowers EVER result in a big CRASH, BOOM BANG??? How could they ever do that???
Well, let me tell you...and you can laugh!
You see, my lovely wife planted some nice flowers about 800' away from the house, around one of our ranch signs. It looked very nice.
Only problem was; we don't EVEN have enough hose to reach this spot to water (and we have a LOT of hose for the animals).
So the flowers were fading, and tonight I tried to "help" (lawd help me).
So I grabbed the skidsteer and loaded up the 300 gallon water tank in the bucket. I filled it enough to keep it in the bucket and drove down the hill
with it. (Note: the tank was bigger than the bucket).
So, I had it all set up, hoses and everything and I went down the hill with the tank. My plan was to rotate the bucket just enough to get water flow
and water the flowers (for my wife). Well, that didnt' work.
I rotated the bucket and the tank fell off the bucket, smashed into the ground, ruptured the tank and spilled water everywhere BUT the flowers.
Dammit! I'm out there in the dark, with this great big broken water tank (no help). My freaking dogs are laughing at me (how can a freaking dog
laugh at you???). I'm an idiot.
Here I've got some of the coolest gear in the world and I can't even water some simple flowers! Good thing there aren't any neighbors nearby.
I'm sitting there asking myself...really? $140,000 worth of equipment...and you can't even water the freaking flowers!!
Go ahead, you can make fun of me. It's okay.
