Bad News Comes In Spades

Okay, so you remember that truck of mine. Well, the weld made on the clutch arm broke this morning on the way to work. It was a crappy weld, anyway.

Make a mental note, folks - crappy welds do not hold up.

Not a block from my house, I depressed the clutch and it went, "POP. That sickening pedal-to-the-floor thump came next and there I was, no shift - no nuttin'. Dang!

Life Beside Fishing

My other thing next to fishing is cycling. Well, to be honest - I've been cycling in recent years more than fishing.

I gots me a mess of Berkley Gulp! and Powerbait goodies, too - Fish Fry, Maggots, worms and wigglies... so we'll see how those stack up.

I also whipped up a batch of my first ever, panfish Dry Chum Mix.…

Well - this really stinks

Okay, I dont have to work tomorrow (FRIDAY) except to make a few client calls. "Heck, I can do that from the river bank," Im thinking "...so Im going fishing!"

So what happens? I get in the truck this morning, press in the clutch pedal and SNAP! It lets go with a sickening feel and goes right to the floorboard. The damn actuator arm broke clean off.

First thing out of my mouth - "Summbitch - there goes Friday's fishing!!"

 

The truck can be fixed, but I cant get a…
