Talking pain in the the dairy air

Friday started out like all the rest three mechanic jobs and two mow jobs 6:00 pm I arrive at the last yard for the day. Look at my truck and trailer booth have a bad tire great right nothing else could go wrong. Got three quarters of the way done and belt separated to pieces and its 7:35pm. All I could do was say thank you Lord set back and had a good laugh. Came back the next day fixed it and finished the yard.

Do you keep any spare parts with you when you are out servicing properties, like belts or no?

normally I catch those things ahead of time. Plus, with me doing mechanic work as well I don't have any room in the truck and the trailer is full of stuff.
