Thread Name: Your worst blunder?
Subject: RE: Your worst blunder?
A few years ago, I had carefully packed our car full of our gear for a week in Miltown Malbay and it all fitted very neatly. I put my Grannie's Violin in its case in the space preserved for it and closed the boot firmly. This did not work, so I slammed it, reasoning that all the soft things underneath would cushion any damage.
Brothers and Sisters, I was WRONG! I had great difficulty in opening the case when we got to our cottage, and when I finally succeeded, I found that my valued hard-bodied case was now completely beyond repair. The only good point was that it had done its job and saved our family treasure for future generations! I was able to walk to Friel's with my friends and play joyfully while therein.
