I have no idea why my computer has decided to post these so oddly. I type them out in Open office and then copy and paste. Don't know why it has decided to change the format.

For some who's Wife drives with pedal floored (my son does that).

Beats on a defensiveless TV till the screen flashes and goes green.

And looses bits and bytes from his computer

You did rather well with the Dementia Quiz (I didn't, that's why I posted it)

Those are some jucie looking burgers! All my shirts have stains right around the top of the belly.

PS, the text looked fine to me.

On my computer it looks like a poem. About 5 words and then a line break. Oh well. I can live with it.

I got a call this morning exactly at
the same time my alarm was set to go off. It was good news. My drive
shaft had arrived.

 

SO I got up, and that is when my

stomach decided it was going to be unhappy all day long. Sour stomach
all day. No nausea, but my stomach was just horrible all day.

 

SO I finally staggered out to Christine

and headed up to Charlotte to retrieve the drive shaft.

I was ordered to stop at the feed mill

and get dog food. They were out.

After I got to Charlotte I got a phone

call from a woman that I completely forgot about. I was supposed to
be at her house in Matthews today at 1. I asked her what kind of junk
she had and the first thing she said was refrigerator. I told her
that since I was in the baby truck I couldn't come up today and I was
available tomorrow.


So I headed home. I wanted something to

eat and Chick-Fil-A was the only place I could think of that wouldn't
be super greasy so I swung through the drive through. When I came
around the side of the building and was in front of one of the big
windows two really cute teenaged girls were looking at me. I smiled
and they both turned beet red and started giggling. I got a kick out
of it.

I got home and switched over to the

BlueOx and we headed up to Hickory to get a load of junk. I came home
with a push mower, a tiller, a little reel mower, two extra wide
wheels for a GM G body, and some other stuff. The tiller and mower
are supposed to run so I will find out tomorrow.


While we were loading it up I wrenched

my shoulder so I called my other appointment and canceled. Will
probably cancel tomorrows pickup as well.


The BlueOx ran perfect. IT was nice to

drive it without wondering what was going to quit working next.
Tomorrow I will put the drive shaft in and once more have a 4wd
vehicle.

Another soggy day in Paradice.

 

Last night I had ahard time going to sleep so I was laying in bed watching movies. Just as I was about to fall asleep at 3am I kept hearing a diesel truck going up and down the road. It took me a minute to figure out that he was pulling in every driveway. SO I grabbed my robe and shoes and the Mossburg and went outside. I had to shine my fashlight to see the steps and he saw me and took off. I stood outside behind a truck for a while and waited and he never came back so I went back in. At 5am I got to sleep finally.

 

At 10 I staggered to the coffee pot and began a new day. Steph and Heath were gone to the doctor for his latest round of shots so I was on my own.

 

I hooked the utility trailer up to the DragonFly, aired up her front tires (gotta get tubes put in them) and started the great battery round up. We haven't taken batteries off since I moved the shop up the hill so they were in about 8 different places. Took me about an hour to get them loaded up and I decided to toss my HF engine hoist in the trailer and a couple of old tractor tires and wheels too so I could drop it off to be modified.

 

Just as I was about to leave Steph came home so she helped me hook the trailer up to Christine and I set out.

 

I got to my welders place and dropped the hoist and this beautiful detailed blueprint off to him.

After he showed me his latest business venture - making steel oil lines for old Ford tractors – I headed up to the battery guy.

 

On the way up I got a test from a good customer that he had some scrap so once I had my fist full of dollars I went to get the scrap.

 

Got home and Steph and I set about sorting all the junk out and getting it ready to go to the scrap yard tomorrow. IN the load of junk we found a bunch of el-cheapo sockets and tools and a chain hoist. Not bad for a $70 buy.

 

Since I may be grabbing a tractor in the morning we took the topper off Christine (she looks naked now) and promptly got stuck in the yard.

 

The old DragonFly did me proud pulling her out of the yard.

 

Then I hooked the little wagon up to the Hemorrhoid and loaded up all my electric motors and misc steel from behind the shop and pulled them around front to load on the back of Christine.

 

Now it is time to kick up my heels and rest a spell. Maybe tonight I will get some sleep.

Sounds like a decent day William. You need to post pictures of your named vehicles every month our two as I have CRS and can't always remember which is which.

Hush your dirty mouth.

 

I have a buddy who is a die hard ford guy. His yard is full of them. When he comes over I tell him I am going to have to burn the whole yard to disinfect it.
