Broad Jumps, Part II – Building Them Stalled

I was almost done building all four of the skeletons of the broad jumps after work and found that the directions weren’t quite accurate in some parts. As in there are four extra pieces of PVC. Then I also found that the last jump skeleton had a glitch. One of the two 5-1/4″ pieces of PVC was smaller than it should have been, which made the jump bow. That would have been fine if it bowed before I pounded the PVC into the joints, but this was afterwards and I could not get all pieces apart. The directions say to glue these pieces together, but I can’t even get them apart to glue them! I’m not done trying yet, as I did get one elbow undone, but it got too close to 7 p.m., and my fur babies were hungry, so it was quitting time. But I was so close to finishing that whole skeleton project, and then, BOINK! There’s always a BOINK, isn’t there? Yep.

I think Raven’s got a urinary tract infection. That’s another BOINK!


About Helen

I'm a Southern California living in South Florida. I've been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I'm a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don't understand. So I'm an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
