Chores done, grain replenished hauled and weighed, I was back home by noon. Lunch and transported Frieda to one of them blood sucking/analyzing clinics. Darned if they don’t keep better hours then the banks.

Stopped by two auto parts places for 12volt relays for secret project. The first place had two of the relays I needed only in different boxes. The green boxed one was $7.32 while the one in the red box was $ I guess red ink costs more than green ink. The boxed contents in both boxes had the same part number on both relays. Go figure? I got the one in a green box for today. The second parts place had same relays at even more inflated prices for the red inked boxes. If I can figure out what vehicles they were made for, perhaps I may find a pocket full somewhere? Can’t believe the unreal price differences?

Here’s a picture of my truck having staled but about a hundred yards from my drive, yesterday:

That’s my house on the left. The pickup oddly parked on the right, is one drive short of Wayne’s who lives straight across the road from me. The road here was looking some better on my one hour turn around home. A county truck had tried cracking some of the ice. Some crushed lime stone is seen in spots here and there, yet spaced to far for comfortable stepping. Yup! The hood is popped. Looking under the hood the engine was still there. And. That was my coffee cup sitting there holding that hood down while I took this picture. A couple hours later this mechanical critter was running.

Sorry Kat saw my dairyman friend. Forgot your question, as we talked about his moving his farming operation some 125 miles away. Awaiting phone call from him now. Urban development pushing more and more farm folk off the farm or to move if they’ve the stamina. There moving’s going to put a crimp in our future get together’s. I will miss these father and son families.

So, that’s about it for today. May be looking at the picky-up truck’s charging system tomorrow… This will come first come morning before other shop projects.
Good evening.

How many donuts didja do before yer truck came to rest perpendicular to the travel lanes? And, where are the flairs and flagman?

I swear to all that's holy Fern, if you don't read the labels on your rattlers, (Private joke), you're going to turn that truck into a ditch or a tree.

Now, what they did with the different colored boxes is that they sell the red ones to people that don't know better. They probably keep the green ones under the counter for guys like you...gfp

That truck's owner's driveway is just a couple yards the other side that vehicles left front tire. He must have come out, spun around, and power donuted right back, only along side his drive just missing the culvert doing tire, bumper or fender damage?

Truck isn't yours. Your truck was the one with part of the hood showing. Dang, I thought you'd turned reckless or wreckful which ever the case may be. Sorry about that. Simple case of assuming. We know better, don't I?......gfp
