So my friends and I had a very good time this past 4th of July. There are some pictures on my gallery here. I feel compelled to quickly post a couple stories that had us all in stitches.
Story1: So William had blown up the last car I bought him and needed John to pull it back home from the side of the highway. A day or two before John pulled the Jeep, William had jumped all over him for opening the screen door that faced his living quarters on the back porch because one of the cats had gotten into his room. So a few days later, John gets off work from the drilling rig and was pretty hammered drunk, so he came on over to get William and go get the Jeep. John, in his state, decided to barrel up the stairs, kick the dog door in the bottom of the screen door in, stick his head through and yell:
Story2: So this guy Earl apparently just shows up one day in John’s back yard one day and decides to live in the small travel trailer John had lovingly gutted and re-finished with linoleum and a few couches. At first John didn’t seem to mind, but as time went on John got progressively more fed up with the situation and decided it was time for Earl to leave. So one morning, John gets up and decides ‘Fuck it’ and rather than go out and have a stern talking to with Earl, he backs his one ton Cumins turbo diesel up to the back, hooks on and proceed to go ditch surfing at speeds in excess of 50MPH. After John gets tired of this, he returns the trailer to the back yard thinking surely Earl will leave.
Story2 part2: So a few weeks later, Earl is still in that damn trailer. John realizes that ditch surfing with trailer and squatter in tow was too subtle of a hint, so he grabs his circular saw, runs up to the trailer, cuts a hole in the side, sticks his head inside and yells:
Epilogue: As you might can tell, Earl was not the sort of person that could take a hint and true to this, after John moved out of that particular trailer park, Earl lived on in the small refinished trailer with a now busted axle and one more window then the manufacturer intended. For all I know, Earl is still there and the new owners are trying to come up with more and more creative ways to dislodge Earl to this day.
Stay tuned, as there are many many more stories that I will be posting over the next few weeks….
