Now that's funny.  I damn near spit my martini all over when I read that.  These adventures are like a book you can't put down or a favorite TV show you wait all week for.  Thanks for sharing them.  Nice hat too.  Need to see more of it.

Liver and onions does sound good though. We are slaughtering chickens this weekend so if nothing else I will have chicken livers. May have to run to the store for some beef liver.

Wow.. i just sat down and read this whole thread in one sitting.. You should write a book. The Life of a Scrapminer.

 

I need some lessons on how you taught your wife how to change a starter...lol.. My wife sees grease and runs the other way.. Did you have to start with drops of oil and work your way up to grease? What kind of Animals did your wife get?

I started squirting WD40 on her in her sleep. By the time I got up to axle grease in her sandwiches she was immune. LOL

 

 

She didn't buy any animals tonight. She wanted to go with a friend just to see what went on and what kind of prices things sold for. She was hoping for a goat for dinner but tonight was a sellers night not a buyers.

 

EDIT: She made a liar out of me. She came in with 3 huge rabbits that will get butchered Saturday. Paid $22.

I pan fry mine in beer at a medium heat till it is cooked all the way through. If you cook it too long it is tough, too little and it is mushy. Don't usually cook onions with mine.

Woke up at the crack of early this morning to get to a job. Pouring rain outside so I sent a text to the guy and asked if he wanted to postpone. No answer. So I staggered to the coffee pot and then made a real quick email check and hit the door with my hat shielding my head from the rain.

 

Steph and Heath joined me and we started down the road. As we reached the end of our road sure enough I got a text – come this afternoon. So I went ahead and got gas and headed home.

 

Watched old movies and listened to it rain while searching Craigslist for tractors or parts. Finally I got a text back to come on and get the metal so we headed out at about 3. Pulled out of the yard and windshield wipers on the BlueOx quit working. Opened the hood and hit the motor – nothing. Something has to be shorted out. I will search for ti tomorrow. It was really only misting so I made my way down to AutoZone and bought some Rain-x and put it on the windshield then meandered on down to the house in SC.

 

Met up with the two nicest Asian kids I have ever met. This is the second time I have picked up from them so it we had a bit of fun teasing each other. Got all loaded up ( old washer and dryer parts, a box of brass doorknobs, stainless pipe and some odds and ends) and headed home.

 

Stopped for Steph to run in the grocery store and here we are. Not a bad day even if I did get up way earlier than I had to.

Well I had an interesting day today.

 

After my morning routine I moved the hat from my hat rack to my head and made my way out into the beautiful day. It was 70 degrees with almost no humidity. The order of the day was find the electrical gremlin in the BlueOx. I think the one that got exorcised from the S10 possessed my truck.

 

While I spent some quality time tracing the colored spaghetti under the hood Steph was up to her elbows in murder. Tasty tasty murder. Rabbit murder.

 

She slaughtered her $22 worth of rabbits and got 12 pounds of meat. One was so big she couldn't break its neck so I had to go over and lend some weight to the problem.

 

I went back to the truck and poked around some more and found nothing so I pulled up wiring diagrams on the computer and stared at them for a while.

 

Since I wasn't wholeheartedly interested in the problem it wasn't long before I had found my way over to Netflix and found myself watching Magnum PI.

 

Finally Steph rang the dinner bell and I came in to eat some Tacos. The truck can wait till tomorrow.

 

Steph has more murder planned for tomorrow. This time chicken killing. If nothing else the freezer will be well stocked.

Did you check for a blown fuse? Is this an intermittent wiper motor? How about checking to see if you have power to the motor? Power to the switch?

The wipers only work on high or don't work at all..  The switches are the main culprits sad to say..  Soooo fun to replace too.. :wallbanging:

 

**Make sure the fuse isn't blown first!
