Snow Trophies


It has been snowing nearly every day for two weeks now and has really dumped a lot on our litle banana belt of Oregon. Jordan has a new pickup which he has just been itching to try out in the snow, so it seemed like the perfect time to see what it could do. He, of course, was alone here on the farm that afternoon when he headed up the canyon behind the house. He followed the Rhino tracks for a ways, but even they soon ran out and still his pickup was plowing forward, albeit, somewhat slower than at the lower elevations. Before he knew it, he was just pushing too much snow and could no longer move forward. So he tried backing up, but, hmmm . . . Too late. He walked back to the house in the dark and the next morning, he and KP headed up to unstick him. KP was able to get him out with his pickup, but in the process, the deep snow pulled off both bumpers. My reaction would have been - OH No, my truck is broken! But the boys see it as an opportunity to make new bumpers!
Until next time, may you be blessed with the ability to see the opportunity in adversity.

There is absolutely no comparison of what constitutes a "good time" for men and boys is there? Actually, that old line "The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys" and that really is the truth! Make new bumpers huh? Ok.

Looks like a winter wonderland!
I just got a new Blazer & would be very unhappy if the bumper got pulled off!!

Yep, I would cry and cuss, but I know your boys well and they would be laughing and hooting over that. Silly boys!
