    This is my friday. Drinks up. I had a shit day. Went out at 2pm to ride after doing a few things outside...

    Check air in SS tires (really just need to relieve some)
    Adjust spot lights down on Ultra

    Well... the first thing went arreye. Damn vlv stem cap wouldn't come off... WTF. Cresent wrench... WTF. BANG... off it came. SNAPPED THAT MOFO OFF. Valve core came out!! OMG WTF!!!!

    Now understand that this thing has tire pressure sensors... the valve stem is part of that. All alum.

    Well after I lost one of the stock caps... I replaced it with some decent chrome caps. Been good for a while...

    Well now the bastards wont come off. I broke one and luckily got the dealer to warrenty it. The others still won't come off... tried loads of penetrating oil, even liqued nitrogen to cool it... NOTTA.

    Fed with that junk and adjusting the lights... no freakin riding. That ate up my afternoon. WTF!!! Pissed off.

    Getting hooked up with another 3 of these things for the other fubared bastards...

    Will find some place to change em out for cheap...drive there... take my cresant... try to get them off, most likely break em... but its ok, the SS will be there and I'll have the new sensors.

    Moral of the story... F'in alum with steel. I didn't get to ride. I'm pissed. Drink away my sorrows...

    Oh and with a good buzz I had to test my light adjustment with the Ultra in the street... FUN FUN.

    No drinks tonight...gotta work tomorrow. But tomorrow night...*evil laugh*. Friend is having an "apartment warming" get together...plus my Irish ass missed out on St. Pattys this year (damn job getting in the way of all my fun!) so have to make up for that. Plus, it's been awhile...strike that, got pretty toasted last Saturday too. Ahhhhh...springtime!

    Amen to that. Same here. Nothing has really gone as planned at all. Mine hasn't been "bad"...but "screwed up" does describe it quite well.

    Workin the farm pretty hard this week. I indulge in several items every day. So far we have gotten 3- 30ft X 100ft green houses up and running. One planted with 400 tomato plants. Cleaned up about 3 miles of fence and pulled about half mile of drip tape from last year. (only about 10 miles of that shit to go). Soon I get to get on the big green tractor though.

    I haven't had a drink since the last time I hung out with Topshelf and Dave...

    Only played cards twice...

    I am starting to feel better - may try to hang out with "Gentleman Jack" in a couple of weeks
