Here in the Pacific NorthWest, it could be called the "time of the broken". Seems there is alot more things breaking down in the spring than any other time of year.
Inside the house, the oven went out, a bathroom fan quit, a computer putzed out.
On the cars, there are electrical quirks, flat tires, wheel bearings... etc.
The mower, which ran great last week, refuses now to start.
Last year we had to replace 4 car batteries in the fleet!
Oh well, I can't really complain about fishing gear...
Besides - when the mower breaks and the rototiller won't turn over, what else is there to do but GO FISHING!
Ok - all our problems are solved! We'll quit whining...
