Stress ~~ Sensational Haiku Wednesday



Little Pony

old Mustang is dear
going on thirteen candles
one-fifty no more

her spirit still high
faster than that she would go
one-fifty's too fast

we stop at one-ten
metal fatigue--kill us both
stress her no I'll not

Sensational Haiku Wednesday is hosted by Jenn. Please click on the logo to the right for info about joining in and for more Haiku Wednesday participants.

To read and see Jim and his Mustang's guided picture tour of Cut and Shoot, Texas, click here. The 1998 Mustang GT convertible has 88,000 miles of which 39,000 Jim put on since he got it used in 2001. It was Jim's retirement present from himself.
Yes, it still will go over 150 mph but he doesn't take it over 120 now because of the silent killer, metal fatigue is likely to be present. (We used to magniflux our stock car racing cars after race for metal fatigue.)

Fascinating. I never would have considered metal fatigue.

Excellent my friend. I would have never thought about a car. Very well done. I have searched my blog and can't find a 22.png I am wondering if it is that Wibiya tool bar I just installed and looking at the time of your comment it was after I installed that but the blog is suppose to load first and then that so that should be affecting this. If you continue to have that problem let me know. I'll start watching it and see if i can figure out what that 22.png is. :) Have a great Wednesday :)

...Great Haiku! This Mustang must have served you well... 13 years and still in such good-looking shape...
You should upload the Haiku you left in 'my comments' and place it here too. I loved it! ...I think it ought to be shared... :)
