What are you waiting for? We have some great bloggy friends who would love to read about you! Just grab the button from the sidebar and add you post link :)



O.K. DEAR!!!

Rach says that it is my turn Ahhhhhhggaaain!


Technology: Boon or Bane???

How can something that is kinda fun be so Onerous? (there's a word for you Carebear... and I didn't even have to use a thesaurus)

Last week I had the opportunity to once again head out to the mountaintops to help align a path for a new system that the tower monkeys have been installing.

Being as this particular mountaintop was within a hour or so of the shop, it just turned into a day trip for me.... (Rach was all over that one, she doesn't like it when I have to travel for the week).

As soon as I hit the shop I loaded up and headed south for the out of shop experience....

To set the scene: last thing I do in the evening is set the coffee pot to brew in the morning; the first thing I do in the morning is stumble to the coffee pot to inject a little caffeine into my veins to get me going... After a shower and the routine of getting Rach up (with her cup of Java and a little kiss of course) then getting Itty bit roused around for his trip to my Aunt and Uncle's for the morning, and a cup for the road, (You getting the picture here?)

Get to work grab another cup, rush around to get everything ready, last minute check to make sure I have everything...

An hour and a half or so of driving time with only an hour and ten minutes of time on the clock, until I'm supposed to meet my brother at the site...(I'm sure you're getting the drift by now)

I must interject a fact, that ya'll don't know about me..... I HATE TO BE LATE:::::: I don't even like to be almost on time or even just a little early...(20 to 30 minutes gives you plenty of time for another cup of Java) *grin*

Another little fact about me is: if I drink one cup of coffee, I can pee three (no kidding) you add 3 or 4 cups and it just doesn't go up by a times factor, but expotentially...(are you getting that the drift is about to gush)

Now I may be a little challenged, but I am not a total moron. So it's hi ho, hi, ho off to the men's room I go....(all the while the clock is ticking) and while one source of pressure is relieved another is building... I AM GOING TO BE LATE...

The drive commences, I'm going over a checklist in my head.
1 got my climbing gear: check
2 got the tie back strut: check
3 got the rescue gear: check
4 got the radios: check
5 got my coffee: check check.

All of about 3 minutes and 2.5 seconds into the trip, maybe a couple of miles at best. I'm thinking that I might have to make a pit stop!!!!!!!

No way. I can do this!!!! 42.3 miles and,,,, almost an hour later I'm leaving the blacktop and heading up the hill. You have no idea how much pressure I'm holding back at this moment in time...

the little Angel the sits on my right shoulder is saying, "it's ok you can stop now, it's all gravel road and woods the rest of the way. Go ahead relieve yourself". The little demon that sits on the other shoulder is saying, "you wuss!!! you can make it, they are all going to be laughing at you cause you're late...It's only another 15 or 20 minutes... come on weenie, you can do it.."

Phewww: I make it, as I pull up fully expecting my brother to be grumping about burning daylight, and what took me so long, I see both doors to his truck wide open, the side boxes open and him franticly searching for something...

No good morning, hello how are you, how was the drive, or were in the heck have you been...first words of the morning: "HAVE YOU GOT ANY TOILET PAPER IN THAT RIG???"

He was hopping around worse than the old guy on the airline commercial offering 5 bucks for 2 quarters...

If I hadn't had to pee SO bad it would of been hilarious. As it was I was afraid to crack a smile for fear that I would burst....

As I step out and throw him a roll of T. P., he scotches off into the Noble fir patch with his butt cheeks clenched tighter than a bull's butt in fly season, to commune with nature in a way that only a guy so desperate for a roll of toilet paper can. And I just unzip and let er rip...

OOOOOOOoooooo!!! how do you spell RELIEF!!.... and if you're thinking R O L A I D S... thats not it....

Flash ahead: my brother is all sparkily clean and minty fresh, and I am just glad to be there. We gear up and head up the tower, we get to the dish that we have to work on, tie off and wait for the tech in the building to radio us to start aligning the dish..

The view is to die for, the Chehalis river valley in the distance, rolling hills of timberland and Northwest beauty all around us. The fellowship, not so bad either.

Until..........

My brother snickers, points over to another site and says:::::::

"SMILE..... YOU WERE ON CANDID CAMERA."

Sure enough, not one but three little lovelies pointing at the scene of the crime.

I totally spaced that they had put up cameras on our remote sites.....

It will be a cold day in Hades before he gets another roll of T. P. from me......

P.S. and I'm hoping and praying that it is just my face that you see on Americas Most Wanted!!!

Come on, you know you've got a great story. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has been busted in a royally embarrassing moment!

Oh my goodness, you are too funny. I just love coming over here, you guys keep me rolling...

Rachel said...

Oh DEAR... it wasn't enough that I had to suffer through the humiliation at work all week: "hey, didya hear that your husband got busted for urinating in public?"

Or "hey, have ya seen the footage? you can hear all the security guys laughing on the tape!"

Oh you... and your adventures!

I love you, silly goose.

wife.mom.nurse said...

OH NO! That's just not right!!!

Somehow, I suspect that you may have gotten him back...somehow!

Funny True Story!

Rachel said...

Oy! How do you get your husband back for getting caught peeing on tape??? I'm at a loss for anything I could do that wouldn't cause worse public humiliation for myself, LOL! :)

Kameron said...

It could have been worse! You could have been caught with the toilet paper!

He And Me + 3 said...

OMGosh, I totally was not expecting cameras. That was hilarious. HOpe that the cameras were focused on your handsome face too:)

Pam D said...

You know, I wonder if those security guys realize that a tape like that might bring big money on "America's Funniest Videos"? That could be the $100,000 whiz... ! Gee, Mr. Daddy, sounds like this Tuesday thing might be a permanent gig for you; you do it well!
(and is it just me that can't see Mr. Linky? He's nowhere to be found, but then again, my computer's been acting wierd)

momof3darlings said...

I apologize now for my TST. Ahem.

-stephanie- said...

Too funny. May I suggest a portable urinal? :-D

Hey Mama where's my... said...

that is too cute, it totally sounds like something my hubs would do too!! nice to meet you also~ your little boy is a c-u-t-i-e!!

Carebear said...

Stepanie, I think they make them. They're called empty bottles, LOL! BTW, Rachel: The little Beast eats a plain cheeseburger in his happy meal - which actually means just the bread and cheese, LOL. And next time if they have a stupid prize like cds, ask for an "under 3 toy" which are usually Ronald McDonald toys that my little guy actually really likes!

Shanda said...

Thanks Mr. Daddy! I needed a good laugh! I was going to suggest a "Go Girl" for you; but Carebear is right...you just need to add a #6 to your check list...

#6 Empty Coke Bottle (Check!)

Sorry I have missed a couple of weeks - hope to join back in next Tues.!

Blessings to you & your sweet family today!

"Smile and wave, boys! Smile and wave!"

Lisa said...

Melissa said...

Oh and Rachel Stop by...I havealittle something for you!

Pam D said...

Mr. Daddy... I would LOVE to borrow your walker sometime, but where would that leave you? We'd have to make sure you hadn't had any coffee before I took it... (slaps forehead) Oh yeah.. THAT'S why they make Depends! (am I in trouble yet?)

Killlashandra said...

Oh that's rich indeed. I wouldn't have thought of cameras at the sites either being after more than the view.
