We service our van annually and after the last service we arrived home particularly tired and gave up trying to reverse park the van straight in the back yard. This morning we paid the price for being lackadaisical (now there’s a word I’ll bet you haven’t heard in a while). We forgot to lift one back leg that was close to the fence. As we drove away, the by then dragging leg jammed tight on the steepest part of the driveway.
Bearing in mind that the van was on quite a slope Woody jacked the van up with the Trail a Mate jack to free the leg and lock it in its rightful place, folded up underneath the van.
Me, well I was wringing my hands and pacing, convinced that we would have one of those mishaps that you see on TV emergency shows and both end up in the bloody hospital and trying to explain our stupidity.
