The truck

Friday, March 05, 2010

After seeing this video I just had to put it up.
Yes it's the truck again with the tree stuck up under it & wedged into the under body.
We had to almost tip it over to get it out.
The tree had the truck off the ground so it couldnt even move.
Would had more pictures but camera died.

    Believe it or not,NO ONE WAS HURT!!!
The truck was stuck in the woods for TWO DAYS! The police didnt show up till we were pulling it out.
Then asked when we were all chained up if we needed a tow truck???....OK..
I told him he was two days late on this call & ALL Towing Companies in our area refused to help the lady who's hubby did this.
Sand was in the back of the truck.
We have the truck back as of this morning.
The stearing collum needs to be replaced...GEE I wonder

    With the picture, I couldn't tell it was a tree. Now I can! What's in the back of the truck? Animals? I couldn't tell but looked like big white pigs.

What I do

Thursday, March 04, 2010

Besides cooking at a resturant & all I have to do on this property I am in the automotive business.
OMG!!!! we do it all! & at a really good price.But the repairs & calls I have been getting are so challenging.
Tuesday night I get a call-DO YOU TOW & GET TRUCKS OUT OF DITCHES.....
Me Yeah were ya at...
OMG!! I had to go get the lady who's hubby had drove off the road in a 4x4 truck needless to say it also had a plow on it(FULL SIZE REALLY HEAVY).
He was over knee deep in the snow & two hairs from hitting a tree.
I was the first to see the truck & where it was at...JAW DROPPING I was in shock!
Well we had the big truck to pull it out HA after we dug holes into the pavement it came out.
My partner went to go shift it to drive it & all it did was spin its tires..
It was 8pm & dark out so me & another worker went around the other side of the truck to see it was hungup on a tree stump that was frozen & wedged under this 4x4 truck.

We had to jack it up on the passanger side almost tipping it to get the tree out.
Well we did it & drove the truck to the owners home.
All I can say is for a women I sure know how to have FUN!!!

    And that is a good thing, if a little expensive! I am working on my 2nd Elliptical, but tried to keep the first one going with three repairs, but finally the repairs would have cost the price of a new one so I finally got another one.

Missed it..:-(

Thursday, February 11, 2010

Yep you all wont be seeing me on the Doctor Oz show which I was to be at on Wensday.
At the last minute my bus was cancelled to take the 5-1/2 hour trip to NY City.
THEN to really add to my disappointment I was dropped off at the Bus Station & my hubby never heard the phone ringing to come & get me!I was there till 4;30 am, I hadnt slept in 24 hours so I WASNT in the greatest mood.
I went home & slept 2 hours then called DDOORN, who I was to be meeting in the studio to let him know my buss was cancelled.
Got DDOORN's, voice mail left a message &he called me back minutes later to let me know he was at the studio in line waiting to go in for the taping.
I called the studio to let Alisha, know I wasnt going to be ther cause of the weather .DDOORN, drove there the day before & got a hotel room(smart);-).
She told me that the show is still very interested in me!
WOW that made my day! She asked me if I was still interested~ YES ya dont have to ask me that question twice!
so I dont know when I'll be on the show all I know is that they love my success story & that I have kept it off 7yrs &still going strong!!So I will let all know when this will happen.
THE airing for yesterdays taping will be 2/16/2010! I hope I see DDOORN!!!

Above you can see my refund I got in the mail today.

    Oh that stinks that the bus was cancelled. But I hope to see you on there soon. You'll have to keep us posted. You have an amazing story and are an inspiration to many. You deserve to share your story with the world! You should be so proud!!

    I'm so sorry you weren't able to make it. I hope that they do call you again to come out in the show. You are such a motivator and I know... you coming out in a show like that will help many others do what you did. I know that for my part you are the one who keeps me going and I am so grateful for having met you here in S.P. You take care my Friend. ((Hugs))

    I'm SO PLEASED that they are still interested in your story!

Especially as neither BOTZZZ nor I were selected to speak during the show, hence, no way to promote SparkPeople beyond the buzz I could attempt to circulate among those nearby that I spoke with.

There is an attempt starting up to organize the Oz 100...I am trying to lobby for them to join us here @ SparkPeople!

Another thing I would like to see: perhaps a FOLLOW UP to the Oz 100 at a later point, perhaps during Sept. National Obesity Awareness Month...?

I was really looking forward to seeing you on Dr. Oz. Bummer. I will keep watching, tho.

No, I haven't received my 25 points yet for signing up for the surveys. I will be waiting patiently.
