Do women not know what a fuel gauge is for?
A guy called last night about 9 and said he wanted to buy the camper, but could not come til he got off work. I told him I would wait up. He called back at 1145. HE only had $400 for a non refundable deposit. He will bring the rest to me by the end of the week. If he doesn't pay in 2 months he forfeits it.
IT was about 330 before I got to sleep.
I was up at 10.
Steph wanted to go shopping so she and Heath hopped in Christine and left.
Since I had the house to myself I smoked a cigar.
While I was enjoying my bliss clad only in my underwear, JacobD called. He wanted to borrow Old Crusty to till his garden. I told him he had to bring me a Dr. Pepper. So I begrudgingly put on pants and went out to awaken him from slumber. He was not happy. The battery was dead. It needs a new positive terminal so it hasn't been charging. I checked the fluids and jump started him. With a groan and a shudder he belched out a cloud of white smoke then settled into a nice smokey idle.
The tiller fired on the first pull of the rope.
Once the little trailer was attached to the back of the Furd Jacob was driving and Crusty was safely aboard he headed out. I came back inside where it was air conditioned. I was sweating.
Steph got home and I sent an email off to a guy who had a portable garage on CL. I figured it was long gone. It wasn't. I told him I would meet him in 45 minutes in Hickory and headed off.
As I got in the truck Steph told me I could only got 3 miles before Christine was empty. PPPTTTTTHTHTHTHTHT.
SO I went the opposite way to the wretched hive of scum and villainy known as Walmart. After fueling the USS Christine I hit the highway and engaged the hyperdrive, poured in the liquid Schwartz and was soon going plaid to make up time.
I passed two news trucks on the way out. I called Steph to find out what was going on.
I made it in no time to Hickory and got the garage. It is brand new in the box. Since I assume you have all seen a box before I didn't take any pictures. I had 2 ratchet straps and no ratchet. I did have one bungie cord. Since the box was tucked up under the tool box I figured that was enough even though I couldn't close the tailgate.
I was hungry enough to eat the steering wheel so I went to Jack-in-the-Box and got some grub.
On the way home I cruised at sublight not taking any chances loosing my cargo.
Jacob sent me a text and told me he wasn't going to give Crusty back. He said he couldn't go back to a walk behind tiller. LOL. I told him I would be home in 30 minutes. I was home in about 25. He showed up at 30 minutes on the nose.
I pried Crusty from his hands and put him to bed. He gave me some beer for the loan of the tractor.
Jacob had to look at everything in the yard. Borrowed a tool and left. I came inside. Steph went to get something she forgot at the store.
Tomorrow I get to assemble a garage.
