:D I am thinking you maybe right. He could also be sore cause he was called away from a big college basketball game. He was moody.

I get what I did was wrong. But I just think it was blown out of proportion. Tell me I'm a moron, tell me Im bad and then send me on my way.

Are fire hoses made of such shoddy materials that a vehicle backing over one could actually puncture it? I don't understand. Were there spikes on your tires?

One wouldn't think so! And last I knew no there were no spikes on my tires ;)

He was just throwing his weight around, telling my step father he was going to be charged for the hose(which wasnt broken to my knowledge). My step father didnt run over it..I did.


All I know is I run over my garden hoses all the time and they still work. :p

Still reeling from yesterday's meeting, and our resulting decision to homeschool our youngest son. Lots to do before Monday.

Just learned that one of my high school history teachers died after heart surgery. She must have been in her 80s by now, but was a fascinating person. She and her husband met during the runup to D-Day in 1944 -- he is now the last surviving member of the D-Day planning team; the meteorologist who helped make the final call whether or not to press ahead on June 6 or wait for a month. It just reminded me that while we talk about long-distant history on this forum, with every year that passes, more of our own past moves into the realm of history, beyond recall by anyone who experienced it first-hand.

had an interveiw today didn't go so hot...they really want me and I'm not crazy about the job but it would work till I was on my feet and could go back to college and finish my degree. Anyhow, they need me for a very early shift and that wont work with my husbands current shift and the time the time the girls go to school.

ah well something will come along.

I'm very sorry to hear that, Chatterbox. It is a great loss on a personal level, and for history as well.

And Divia, I'm very much crossing my fingers for you.
