I want to pull my cart with a wheeler.  Something like this, but not as bad

Will still want to pull it as a cart sometimes as well.  Found this for sale, $40 for a handle.  Converts it to a clevis pin hitch.  The trailer needs to go about 400m total.  You may ask why the 4 wheeler?  When  you fill it full of cooler, food, and other BS it is easily 200lbs.  My driveway makes Mt Fuji look like a bunny hill.

Can you all think of a better way of doing that?  I don't love $41 for the handle and then buying a receiver for a pin for another $30.

Thanks man.

Lost close friends, pets, and family before.

 

While no harder I suppose, dealing with this is definitely a different and very emotional sensation. Dogs are different.

I've never been upset at the loss of a pet.  I'm not sure I'm capable of being emotionally attached to an animal.  

 

Suck for YOUR buddy though.  How old is he?

 

Our yard dog at work is a 13-year-old German Shepherd.  Up until a couple months ago she was vibrant and loved to play.  Now, all she wants to do is sleep.  It's odd, but I think she's depressed.

Part of the reason I don't have a dog is I don't want to see anyone age and fail around me.  Sorry mang. :(

I love dogs, always have.  They have never left me, hurt me, lied to me, hit me, only love and licks.  (yes some accidents)

Didn't see the family cat all day yesterday to my recollection.  Checked through the whole house and can't find her anywhere.  She's 15 years old and has a bad limp from arthritis due to a fall she had over 10 year ago.

She had been seeming to lose a bit of weight as of late.

Kind of think she may have snuck out when one of the kids had a door open a couple of days ago.  She's been gone up to 5 days before and made it back fine.  We never declawed her even though She's an indoor cat, so she still has all of her defences.

For some reason though, i just have that  strong feeling in my stomach that she won't be coming back this time.

She's spent the last couple weeks glued to either myself or the 2 year old, not really doing too much, and now she's just gone.

Just that strong feeling like she left for a reason this time.

He is an English mastiff and just over 12.  We basically got an extra 60% on average lifespans, and he has been happy all of it until now.

Thanks you, brochachochip.  Everything kind of sucks but he has had a charmed life that he let everyone ride along.  I'm glad I have this afternoon before we go in tonight...

 

It is a lot like caring for a senior and a child all at once, right now honestly.  It's hard but kind of helpful.

 

I can say this with no problem.  Nothing has put me in my place and bettered my life like having this dog.  It reminds me that

#1)  Something cares about me.  It's advantageous sometimes.

#2)  I have a goal to live up to about 1% of the good guy my dog thinks I am.

So I'm in a BBQ event where I need to serve ~500 samples/bites of food.

Last year I did "Pulled pork on the half shell" Which was the top/bottom of a pulled pork slider with a pickle.

Looking to do something different this year...

No shit bro. I can treat my dog like shit and she'll be like, I'm sorry.

We don't deserve their loyalty.

Glad to hear you are doing ok and trending up!

 

How's the schooling and things?

2/3 of my express classes are going great. One class is going fucking horribly. Professor is a younger adjunct professor, who loves making her 'quizzes' based upon paraphrasing the chapter's content, and making the questions ambiguous. While we are given 60 minutes for 20 questions, the wording makes finding the answer to the question incredibly difficult. Needless to say after consulting with another professor who is a full time professor, I'll be speaking to the head of the department tomorrow or Monday.

Jack isn't really doing well and this time no reason why.  He seems to kind of be done himself.

 

Poor old bastard best dude ever.

Sorry to hear man. Does he have any favorite foods or treats? Might love to enjoy some.

The more people from the class going together the better.  We had to do this about a prof when i was in college.  The class lined up together at the deans office.

 

She told us at the start that all testing material would be based on the text book.  Then the test was on material not in the text book.  And she was marking people wrong on answers directly from the text and her teaching in class which just happened to directly contradict the approved text...

Needless to say all of our test marks got adjusted by the dean and he sat in on our classes and supervised all testing/grading.
