Whoo-Hoo!!!! Go Blossom Go!
[QUOTE=Chevaux;1760568Funny you should say that. We were moving some hay yesterday with the quad and sled and I took a header into the quad and it was parked -- you can't even trust machinery.
It must be the position of the moon. My Saturn kicked out of gear Friday morning, rolled down THRU the pipe panel, dragging the pipe panel with it and coming to rest right at the barbless wire fence, separating the grove of trees that serves as the Pet Cemetary
Had the pipe panel not hung on so tenaciously to the nose of my Saturn, I wouldn't have a Saturn -- it would have plowed thru the fence head-on into a big fat pine tree. That would be my 2002 Sport Coupe with only 54,000 miles on it
I didn't even have the **lls to go down and look at it, I called Mr. WTW home from work - lol lol lol lol There was nothing caught under the car, it started right up, he backed it up onto the driveway, and said "you got lucky Missy"
There's some aluminum pipe panel paint on the front end a couple scratches that are nothing compared to the scratches I've gotten when parked at WalMart.
I ALWAYS put the car in reverse (standard shift) and set the brake but the neighbor's cat-food-stealin'-Weimaraner was running out of the barn. In my haste to get out of the car and take swing at that dog, I forgot all that and my coat sleeve must have caught the gear shift just right and pulled it into neutral.
I could do a whole 'nuter paragraph on how all that noise affected one of my horses and what my first thought was when I saw "A car" down there but I've hi-jacked this great thread quite enough
Ask how many times I've given Prayerful Thanks for my car having virtually no damage much less not being totalled?
