WORD UP!!! Our NEW challenge word is up on head over there and check out the creative teams take on the word NEW and don't forget to link up your take!!! This week Scrap Magie is sponsoring the site with one of their awesome kits!!!

So want to hear a funny story??? One of complete stupidity?? Of course you do...and this time, it's not about me...LOL!!!

My husband bought a new truck!!! It's a '96 4x4 ford F150 extended cab....for him it's all about the 4x4 aspect!! He is seriously like a kid on Christmas day!!! He brings it home and, hounds me...want to go for a ride?? huh? huh? come on...wanna go for a ride in my new truck??? So we load us all into his new truck...and by all I mean Dakota, Haillee, Delainey, myself, and my hubby. We go for a drive. HA!!! If only it was that sedate!!! He takes us to a field that the city is getting ready for developement...and remember we have had a ton of rain and there are no mountains in Red basically this was a field of mud....and we all know how much boys and their toys love mud!!!

So into the field we go....doing 360's and splashing through the boggy mud puddles....until it all came to a muddy stop!!! Yup...stuck!!! My Husband tried to rock his truck out of the pit....but all he succeeded in doing was burying us up to the floorboards!!! I opened the passenger door and literally stepped onto the ground!!! So we call everyone we know who might be able to help....thank god for cell phones!!! My dad came by to see what kind of help we would need on his way home from work....shook his head and laughed!!!! Jay's buddy rusty showed up...but he only has a he was just extra muscle. Rusty, however let me take his car to bring the kids home...Thanks Rusty!!! I knocked on our neighbours door and all Bruce said was....what has he done??? Funny how guys intuition works really well when it involves the dirt!!! I told him he was stuck and needed rescuing!!! So giggling like a derranged school boy who just got caught peeping on the girls...Bruce grabbed his camera and some supplies and took off to rescue my hubby in his truck. the end result??? You know the Corb Lund song?? And the funniest thing about this song is it is written by a group from Alberta about 4 bying in Alberta!!!So here....just so you can picture how it went once I left....

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut,
Which eventually pulled out the Ford

With some difficulty

Well more rain than we’d seen for a thousand years
Caused financial joys and biblical fears
It caused some smiles it caused some tears
But more to the point of our story
For The first time in the collective memory,
That old brown prairie that had been so dry for so long was very muddy
Boggy and sticky
We’d pull one truck out and get another stuck in
And motors would roar and tires would spin
We’d sink right down, down to the diff, and we’d all take turns and do it again
Till no one could move, we’d call one more friend,
Come on out here, we need you…bring your truck

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut
Which eventually pulled out the Ford
And the Dodge equal opportunities

They got me stuck in the mud, so they couldn’t rehearse
And Chavase too has missed his work
Richie, he now fears the worst, he stood up his ex wife she called him a jerk
Course Holman didn’t have nothing better do to, ‘cept ranch.

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut
Which eventually pulled out the Ford

Well it was truck after truck, we all got stuck
‘cept the big old four by hutterite truck
We all thought “lord are we in luck!”
But he wouldn’t come anywhere near us,
Mighty neighborly, mighty neighborly.
So we used a lot of our backs, a little of our brains
We jacked up the jacks, and snugged up the chains,
We all did our very best to refrain from shovelin’.
We put what timber we had, underneath the wheels
And we was all out of sand, but managed to steal
Two sacks of the best modern canola seed you ever did see,
That ‘oughta give us some traction

The Chev got stuck and the Ford got stuck
But the Chev unstuck when the Dodge showed up
But the Dodge got stuck in the tractor rut
Which eventually pulled out the Ford

We spilled genetically modified canola seed
That was genetically modified for controlling the weeds
And for big old yields and margarine oil, raised hell all over that native prairie soil
Agriculture Canada is definitely gonna be looking for us

Jay got stuck at 7:30 pm and didn't get unstuck until 11:30pm!!! He got Bruce's truck stuck while trying to pull himself out....eventually they called a budddy of Rusty's who got Jay out, almost got stuck himself, and than Jay pulled Bruce out!!! And at some point they even had to dig out my husband's driver side door cuz the truck kept hence the lyrics above!!! Let me tell you...the word of the night was DUMB ASS!!!

Here's the pics....

That would be my husband smiling like a dork sitting on top of his truck!!!
