Why did I do this, it was Stupid!

(Now if I wuz in the middle of the Gators, I would ask myself WHY??? There is a no trespassing sign!!! Before you say anything, notice she does have a stick!)
Have you ever chided yourself for a decision you though was a great idea. I know that some folk regret changing the color of their hair! I know some ladies who WISH they had never tried another hair do!
Some folk pick a new car, the color is just what they want, until about three weeks and the color starts to grate on them.
I remember a good friend who was sold on the ‘Wankle’ engine in the Mazda car (I think). The Wankle was a rotary engine that was going to revolutionize the auto industry. I saw him a year later, he had decided ‘It ain’t gonna be in ALL cars in three years!”
I am not sure if the rotary engine is still in production.
My son Mark knows real-estate and houses, he knows nothing of bonds and investments. An investment adviser suggested he buy into some stocks for his children. He became an investor. He lost a few thousand $. The investor came back, you need to pump some more $ in. He realized what my dad always said, “Don’t try to play someone else’s game,” He regretted it, took his loses and got out@!.
So this is about? We hit the road this morning. I was sure I needed shocks on the Motor home, so in the past few weeks as the coach sat, I changed the shocks to some pricey shocks. I can’t wait to try them. WE DID this morning. The coach had NEVER ridden this badly. I am kicking myself, saying a bad word. Found a spot by the local soccer fields to see if I can add some air to our air bags. WE had traveled about a mile. You would not believe the ride, bouncy, bumpy,crazy bad at 10 MPH..
Told my sick looking lady. I will crawl under and re-adjust the air bags. This thing has no springs. It took about 5 minutes. I crawled out from under the coach, let’s try going around the block.
Just after we started rolling we realized there would be no need to go around the block. It rides like a new coach, but for about ten minutes there, I could see myself changing back to the cheaper shock. LOL
We had a great ride AFTER THE ADJUSTMENT. She cruises good and WE B TICKLED,…………………………………..NOW THAT IS, but I still ain't gonna wrestle Alligators, lol...!
