    Default I got greedy, I'm stuck...

    Why doesn't this surprize me? I'm sitting here waiting for AAA.

    The plowing went fabulously after it took 2 hours to hook up the 'minute mount.'

    And then I got greedy, and wanted to put the round bales WAAAAY back. And got stuck.

    It is cool that my new cell web connect works in the truck.

    I hope AAA comes thru for you.
    I had a flat, that I changed, then a second one and called them and they could not get me help, at all, on a Sunday afternoon, because of some important ball game.

    Since then, I use US Rider.

    Are you out of trouble yet?

    They were there in a little over an hour. Didn't say *boo* about the plow (but then they KNOW me too well and I'm putting most of their kids thorugh college... ) twitched 'er out like nuttin.

    I was so *proud* of myself for the plow job.

    I still have one bale of hay stuck on too.

    I *have* hay, and it's good weight in the back.

    Happy 2010

    I have to get my lawnmower stuck at least once a year because I get greedy for one more patch of grass.

    And I have buried my tractor getting one more round bale, too.

    glad you got pulled out.

    The Plow Fairy visited while I was in writhing pain today in bed with a migraine.

    I heard him. He did the main driveway, God Bless him. Young kid who helped the first storm when there was tons of mud underneath the fresh snow and I couldn't even GET to the plow.

    The biggest, most helpful thing is he does the bank at the end of the driveway. My driveway is *almost* flat. So slight a grade as to be barely noticeable. Until there is ice or you're trying to push the snowbank UP and across...

    Kindness begets kindness. I am SO GRATEFUL for my plow fairy this year. Even though plow is safely attached. He could not have known my sheer agony today with migraine. He would've done it anyway. But the fact that he did it TODAY, even though he saw ME plowing last night... miraculous.

    It's gone a pathetically long way to restoring my faith in humanity. Provided my head doesn't explode before tomorrow (it might, it truly might) I will be swiping snowbanks for those shovelling or snowblowing.

    A little help goes a long way. A little anonymous help goes further.
