On a lighter note

Drove down to a local feed store this afternoon to pick up a half-dozen bales of straw and a couple pallets to use as a backdrop for archery targets.

I drive a pickup, yes, but it's just a little Ranger - not exactly designed for hauling oversized loads. The pallets and bales definitely over-filled the bed. And - I'd forgotten my rope. So, I wound up driving home very carefully, avoiding main roads (and thus the majority of traffic) and keeping the speed down. I could just see the wind grabbing one of the bales and dumping straw all over the road....

When I got home, I told my husband that I'd just done two things I swore I'd never do: I drove with an unsecured load in a pickup, and I'd made a "straw purchase."

Ba-dum bum. The look on his face was priceless.

Next time, though, I'm remembering the rope.
