Funny circumstances

Recommended Posts

Last week my Grandaughter got her new trampoline.One that has a safety net wall.So I spent several hours putting it together over the weekend.She supervised.So we read the directions that it could get blown around by high winds.We havent had anything with high winds since Hurricane Matthew went by in October.

So, 2 days after we put up the trampiline,we get a big storm.It woke me up around 3 this morning.Its the same one that hit Mississippi yesterday.So I get up and check the forecast.Fixing to get hit with 45-55 mph gusts.So I get my flashlight and go get some rope out of the truck and I start tying the tramp.to a tree.No problem.Then I tie another rope to the tramp. and run the other end around a small tree (or so I thought ).Now its 330 a.m,I dont have my contacts in , half asleep,its lightning and starting to rain harder.Im trying to hold my flashlight with my neck as Im untying knots in the rope.So I loop around the "tree" and pull the knot toward me to tighten it. And all of a sudden it falls over and konks me in the head.The " tree " turned out to be a 2× 8 that was leaning against the small clump of trees! It hurt like a mug for a few minutes.

The things we do for love.....

its amazing what we will do for our grandkids. and that it makes our actual kids jealous cause we didn't do as much for them ,or let them get away with as much. so they think!   hope 2x8 is ok, I hate wasting good lumber!-_-
