The Ooops Factor

Wednesday, July 15, 2009 at 2:00 am 19 comments

Uh-oh!Life can be explosive!  Sometimes a big bang is just what’s needed to get the job done. 

Explosive power provides the thrust that propels rockets out of our atmosphere… *ahem*… usually. 

Sometimes destruction is a desired outcome – alas even destruction can fail.

Then there are times when a grand entrance goes wrong.   This is what the cable box normally looks like.

This is the same cable box after a meeting with a tired cross country driver in a nearly three ton minivan.

Ooops!  Te he he…   To all those who suffered through a couple of days without cable TV, internet access,  or phone service… my deepest apologies.  I’ll park a block over next time I visit 😉 .

    Yes, the next time you *visit* Austin, please park around the block. But once you are an Austinite, closer is fine! 🙂 See you soon!

      But the pull is so strong!!! LOL. Actually one thing we look forward to about living in Texas is being closer to the west coast. We do want to visit California! Maybe not Disneyland though.

        Was wondering who the “M” was – but the neighbour spelling gave it away 🙂 🙂 I don’t remember P bashing our cable box!
