This is Sheriff Peanut Butter Brickle. Have you ever been stopped in your car for speeding? Yes. You.
Well. Maybe you’ve got a ticket. A fine. Maybe you had an excuse. Maybe. Just maybe you did nothing wrong. But I highly doubt it.
But what happens when the house on wheels that you live in decides to break the law and start up by itself? Yes. Yes. Big Blue Treat Wagon? You. Are. Arrested.
There we were. Sitting around on a Friday morning. The persons had their mud in a cup. Everyone was more than tired from Digby being sick for days. And all of a sudden, I heard it. A click, click, click. I know that sound. And I don’t like that sound. It’s not music to my ears.
Boy Person jumped up. I jumped up. Girl Person and Digby heard nothing because they were so tired. And as Boy Person ran around trying to figure out who had started the generator of the Big Blue Treat Wagon, it became apparent that the RV was trying to make a run for it. With us in it.
The only thing that saved us were the fact that other things malfunction so much it prevented it from doing what it was trying to do. Roadblock successful.
Now. You would think that we would have known why this happened. But it was a mystery.
Until Boy Person looked up how. Why. What. How did the generator start by itself?
And it was determined that if it would have actually started, the probability of being able to stop it would be low. Yes. Impossible. Due to being mechanically imperfect in other ways, this particular chaos was averted.
Sometimes you think you know what trouble is. But sometimes it’s double that.
I suppose just like many things lately, we can either try and fix everything or fix our attitude first. Life comes with surprise. Life comes with inconveniences. No matter what. You can either be depressed about it or figure out what to change. Or take away the keys from your RV. Either one.
We don’t know what will go wrong next. What will break.
But it won’t break my attitude or handsome. If it’s broke fix it. And that means not just an RV. It means your life.
We will be in this Mississippi place until Wednesday and then…stay tuned!
