Earthquake caused by ME

Well, this is somewhat related to RVing since I was working on the RV at the time.

A few weeks ago, as most of you probably know, a major earthquake hit Northwestern Mexico (7.3) and of course included southern California where I like, San Diego.

At the moment it started I was coming from the RV to the house, on the deck, and BAM, here we go!!!!! I have been in other quakes and the major one in LA in th early 70's and kinda know when ta worry, well, it almost came to that then!

Anyway, the wife (62 yoa) and son (41 yoa) were in the office on the computer when it began. This is what I was informed after the rockin and rollin finished.

At the beginning of the quake, Son says, "What was that?" Wife says, "must be David in the shop", a few more seconds into the quake, Son says " WHAT is that?" and wife says, I don't know what the H#!! he is doing out there but I wish he would knock it off!" THEN, they both realized, I DID NOT CAUSE THE EARTHQUAKE, it was real!

So there ya have it, we guys get blamed for everything!!!

Until the next, whatever, have a great weekend!!

Thanks for posting that for me.

I'm glad I'm off the hook, and I'm in Texas.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Better you than me. I've been told that everything is my fault. Guess that's why I'm single?

Actually it was caused by improperly dressed temptresses. At least that is the take by some obscure Iranian nut house.

I noticed on TV that, right after that Iranian nut case made his statement, a bunch of female college students decided to show a lot of cleavage to test his theory. There were 46 recorded quakes world-wide that day. Must be he was right. Certainly caused my ol' heart to jump around!

David.. You are what is called a very responsible person.. When stuff happens, folks all jump to say "DAVID IS RESPONSIBLE" (even if you are not)

I recall one tremor here in Detroit. The room shook a bit (Man does that mess up the inner ear) the cameras we remote went off line, and everyone in the room (Save me) started saying "What was that, What was that" This old boy was born in Los Angles so I replied "Earthquake" (NOTE: left when I was 3 but it seems I still recall what a quake feels like)

Do you know how to spell w-o-m-a-n? That's reason enough.
