Feller has er. This was a saying my gandpa always used. I think it meant; a fellow has a hard time now and then. Not sure where he got it, he would be 110 years old if he were still around. Dad still uses it. Does help put things in perspective on a bad day.

ECI called yesterday morn wanted me to come over and run the cart for a couple of days. I kind of got foot draggy and well looks like all I would have done is just done a crop tour anyway.


Man O Man Ken you used to be the jinx on everybody else's day, what happened? Were you looking in the mirror when you were talking to me? Your day was one of those down hill all the way all day deals.


I feel for you bro, BUT please keep your distance.
