    I am so over 2022

    In no particular order

    We had snow and I was trying to clear the driveway with the tractor. I slid off the driveway and into the drainage ditch. I had to call a tow company to get it out . No damage to the tractor, but a 250.00 damage to our checking account. On the way to putting it away, I skidded into our GMC with the bucket. Just got the estimate: 5,100.00. Insurance will cover that

    Today, my Uncle passed away. He was a shaker and a mover like no other . He will be very missed . Here is an article about him

    Also today friend’s horse had a freak accident, broke his leg and had to be put down.

    I am so done.

    I am so sorry about your uncle. Sounds like a miserable start to the new year with everything happening.

    I don’t blame you, I am sure you will miss your uncle.
    I too am ready to get a great new year rolling. Funny how just a date in the year can trigger new hopes and outlook on life!

    What a great write-up on your uncle. He lived a wonderfully rich full life. Thanks for sharing this.
    Good for you getting out and clearing the snow with a tractor under such slippery conditions. Been there, done that and empathize with the frustration and expense when slipping and sliding.

    This afternoon my cousin emailed me about a family member having domestic trouble which lead us to reminiscing about the Stuart mafia (my uncles) and how they always offered to “pay a visit” to poorly behaved boyfriends for us girls. It is funny because these guys were always mild mannered. But one time they did “pay a visit” to their sister’s husband who was abusing her, and knocked his teeth out. This was after he had knocked her teeth out.
