Default Why Me?

No mater what I do, how much I spend, how much time and maintenece we do, how come every time I try to go something like this has to happen?

Just spent weeks trying to get the boat ready for Sarasota.
Yesterday put all new bearings, brakes and tires on the trailer. This morning I went "ONE SMALL BLOCK"
went to stop in front of my house to load my suitcase and BOOM!!!!

That 3 inch by 3 inch 1/4 wall aluminum square tube of 6061 broke. What does that support 14,000lbs? Go figure what a surprise.

Yes, I do believe God was with you..., no injury, no real damage other than the actuator becoming dislodged. Gratitude and thanks. The sun will shine on you shortly. It is just a small stumbling block my brotha!

When I feel the "why me's," I humble myself. I read were you came from and what you overcame in Poker Runs America magazine a few years ago, so this is small, small potatoes. Here is some Gospel inspiration for you. Small test(s) will make you stronger.

Gino, don't complain....that little mishap may have saved the day....imagine you rollin down 75 N, and you clear the little ''bridge bumps'' that are there @ 75MPH, and boom.....off the boat goes completely ''out of control''....I feel your pain, but you just may have saved the day! With that being said....looks like you actually have someone looking over ya!

Had this happened at speed on the interstate would bring to mind the song "Ain't no stopping us now"...would make you wanna dance the St. Vitus on the side of the road.
