Road Trip to Jackson Tuesday Was Cancelled

My husband had planned on going to Jackson yesterday to bring his compressor to the shop to be fixed. It is still under warranty and he has put it off all winter. Yesterday, while I was at the boutique, he spent the afternoon getting it out of the shed with the tractor by putting the forks on the tractor and lifting it up. He secured it with some extra tow straps. However, the compressor flipped on him after it was in the air and fell to the ground. Opps. He had to order a part for it that got pretty banged up. He didn't want it going to the shop looking "like that." So the part has been ordered and we will wait for it to come in. I am hoping it is only a few days so he can get the compressor on the shop. He acts as if the compressor will be out of warranty any day now, but I think it has a couple of months left. So I spent the afternoon at the flea market adding some stock and straightening up there. That is one thing out of the way for now. I will try to go back before the weekend because I have some more new stock to get in there. Did your Tuesday go as planned?

I hope the part he ordered will not be long to come. Let's hope the compressor still has some warranty months left. Tuesday went even better than planned, but today it's really torrential rain, we had to stay at home all the day.

It is supposed to be here Saturday, but we will see. The last thing he ordered was supposed to be delivered on Saturday via USPS and our post office closes at 10 am on Saturday so probably a no-show! We have your rain now. Friday was supposed to be rain day, but it started here at dusk Thursday evening and rained all night. It's after 2 am now and has stopped it sounds like. But we still have rain expected today, tonight and all day Saturday.

@LadyDuck It came but he had to order something else that we are now waiting on. Crazy here!! We had sunshine here this morning also. It was nice since rain was expected again. It is clouding up now, so maybe we will get more rain later this evening.

@kareng - Let's hope it will be there on Saturday before 10 am. This morning we had no rain, it is sunny now and very warm, let's hope this nice weather stays for a few days. May be we are going to have rain during the night, but that is a minor problem.

I woke up thinking it was Saturday! So I’m not sure how my Tuesday went because I’m not sure I remember. Guys are funny, aren’t they? He didn’t want it looking like that…he sounds like a woman going to a salon.

We have done that a few times. Not long ago, my husband had the days of the week mixed up ALL week long. His equipment is like a vehicle to him. Has to be kept neat and nice looking...

I hope the new part for the compressor comes in quickly. Okay, so question. Why are you still working at the flea market when you gave your notice and will be leaving by the end of the month? I thought you would start to clean out of there.

Sorry about the compressor! Tuesday was pretty frustrating. Today will be about the same. Have a good day.
