you can’t win ‘em all…

 

It was race day at Hastings Racetrack…a beautiful sunny afternoon…Classic Alley Kat was favoured to win…

the results not so good..she came in fourth…too bad ‘Bobby’..you can’t win ‘em all…..

this afternoon was a no win situation…

but not before we get a nasty email from a disgruntled man in Chilliwack…this email was with regards to an item we were going to sell on Craig’s List..we found out we couldn’t sell it..and he was angry..said we had a verbal  contract and we had no right to back out…he had emails to confirm….blah blah..now he wants to take us to small claims court..get a life buddy!!!…unfreaking believable!!!..all over an item worth $100!

Our late afternoon was spent..dreaming…kicking tires..where?..the Rv show in Abbotsford..was there anything there worth dreaming and drooling over??..sure there was a couple of nice buses…but it’s not time yet…see you in the used RV lot when our time comes….

Since it seemed to be  date night…we went to the Olive Garden for dinner…had to wait 45 minutes at 800 pm…gosh, people eat dinner late??…

  1. It's always good to read your blog, even when you have mixed results to report. We're having rain here today, but other than that, we are having a brief spell of Indian summer.

  2. Gee, the guy from Craig's List should get a grip. I'm sure he can search out another one of those items like the one you had listed. Makes you wonder about people.

    Sorry #3 didn't finish as a winner. Maybe next time. Dinner at the O.G. is a good consolation prize for everyone except #3. Guess they didn't have a place at the table for him. :)

  5. Glad to see you had a good night in spite of the aggravation, Sam just would have told him to sit and spin. Olive gardens are usually great no matter what time it is. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.

  6. You said it, you can't win 'em all. The Craig's list guy sounds like a real jerk!

  7. Well, as much of a jerk this disgruntled person is, unless you have a legal reason you can not sell the item, he probably does have a case against you...that's just how screwed up it is now a days...it's become a sue happy society!

    Glad you had a nice date night. I like that idea! I wonder if it will work around here?

    Take care!
