Broke it riding around town...

I've had ridiculous things happen all day today. It began with being stung 24 times by yellow jackets... Fun. Just now, I was headed out to do my usual 10-15 mile loop to air out the mind and I came at a street head on instead of a right turn like I normally would and totally underestimated how big of a bump and incline/transition it was. I was fine. Shook me to the bone, but no big deal. Was taking my next right turn to get onto my windy back road and out of the corner of my eye thought I saw some light flashing. So I pulled over to find that the bump had somehow separated the stock tail tidy/plate holder/signal mount in two via snapping the tops off of the two screws going in behind the plate light... Seriously???? Both turn signals were just dangling. Hence seeing some light out of the corner of my eye...

I fixed it with a usb cable I had accidentally left in my bag from our camping trip. The good news is that apparently the 6 million usb cables I have are useful for something...

Man, what a freakin day. I'm going to bed.

Oh man... sometimes we have on days, and sometimes we have off days. Sometimes it's best to count your blessings and park it!

I'm surprised you kept riding after 24 wasp bites! That must have hurt real good.

Lost about 80% use of my left arm and shoulder for a good hour. Benadryl is a helluva drug!

Funny thing is right as I posted my story I got a Facebook message from family saying my wife sent them a birthday card and gift for somebody else. Lol one of those days!
