We got back from Chicago, I knew the yard would need to be mowed...what an under statement that is....we had a huge storm whilst we were gone, rain made that grass double...lol...so Alan gets the tractor mower all greased, etc....I start to mow while he goes mushroom hunting in the woods behind our house...good, right? Yeah, the ball joint broke, so I called him, I was just about finished, but still ..just wanted to get it all done. He is in the truck, comes driving in the yard...thanks.....and looks at the tractor...it is definitely going to need new parts...he continues to drive..and drives right over the two foot square cement top on the septic system...yep, broke that......and then tries to go on....ripped the tire on the truck from the cement...it had less than a hundred miles on it....another $100 ...so....what part of that cement slab did you NOT see and now it is repairs for the septic top,the tractor and  the truck...so...just erase yesterday....

so I went to get the parts for the lawn tractor...great...only $9.00....called about the cement top for the septic system....yeah, $50 for that little mistake..and the tire....it is gonna be $100 for the tire and $50 for all the other expenses that goes along with it...changing, disposal, labor, and the valve stem....good job, Alan....
