New animals came today.
This morning I was sore from bouncing around on Delilah so I didn't get going for a bit.
At noon we headed outside. Steph got in the Taurus and I got in BettyBlue dragging the Escort and headed to the scrap yard.
She still has not figured out that you cannot beat on an injured car that you want to get somewhere. We had to pull off the road at one point to put the magnetic light wiring back up where it wasn't dragging and when we pulled back out she floored it. IT made it another mile then I pushed it with BettyBlue the last two. It did start long enough for her to drive it off the scales and park it.
Once we got unloaded we headed home.
I had a good opportunity to get a picture of the fleet so I did. Heath posed for me.
A guy that had a string mower got in touch with me and said to come look at it. So I did. Steph had an interview so she went there.
The "sale of this item is prohibited in California" sealed the deal.
I brought it home. It is a beast compared to the little Poulan I have been using. I cut the driveway with it a nd it flung a baseball sized rock about 5 feet. Not much short of a tree (or the pampas grass) is going to stand up to it.
As soon as I loaded that up a gal called with a dog I have wanted for years. I have looked high and low and haven't found one yet. So I rode over and picked the little guy up.
I think he will fit right in.
Someone made a cigar ashtray out of him. I think I am going to mount him on Gertie- minus the tray.
Emily asked why I was going to take it apart, I told her it was because I couldn't smoke cigars in my own house because of all the people who insisted on living here. She stuck her tongue out at me. LOL.
A gal called who had a kitten so I asked Steph if she wanted to go look at it. She wanted to take Heath. SO she came on home and got him.
They are on the way home right now. Although, Steph just texted me some good news - Heath spilled a Dr. Pepper in BettyBlue. She stopped to rent a carpet machine. TheKracken will get a cleaning as well tomorrow.
When they get home I will post pictures of the new kitty.
