We Don't Know What Her Name Is Yet

I'm not going to be one of those bloggers that doesn't write something for what seems like eons and then apologizes to his/her non-existent readers for not keeping them posted on the day-ins and day-outs whatever the fuck he/she babbles about. Those people are annoying, so you get no apologies from me. I've been busy.

Busy buying a farm truck, that is!!

After searching hi and low throughout the South Bay and Santa Cruz and Monterey and wherever else Craigslist took us, we finally settled on this beauty.

"Well, she was just 17, You know what I mean..." started going through my head.


It started right up the very first time. And it wasn't warmed up prior to our arrival.
started right up the very first time!

The seat springs on the driver side are totally shot. Hence, the Driving Pillow. Makes for a fun, bouncy ride!
the pillow is necessary because the springs are shot...

I got distracted by a bee in a flower while Hub finished "the transaction". I tend to do that.


Smart Husband installed a tachometer because I drive like a retard without one.
new tachometer!

Smart Husband also rebuilt the carburetor, changed the spark plugs, fuel filter, and other things I don't know how to say nor care about.

Now I can say, "I'm gonna take the ol' girl to the hardware/materials/nursery/whatever store." Wheee!
nice and spiffied up!

I love the truck! That is my kind of vehicle, practical and none of the computer crap you need a degree from MIT to understand. I really enjoy your blog. You have an entertaining style of writing. My blog is about energy healing, psychics, and plants. I'm still in the building stages, but swing by for a visit if you care to!

Post a Comment

OK, here's the deal on commenting: I love comments!

But it's more fun for me to know who is posting comments, and then I can leave fun comments on your site, too, whatever that may be.

Isn't that fun?

FUN, I say.

If you want to be all anonymous and elusive like that, I'm alright with that, but really, it's more fun my way.

Anyway, carry on with whatever you were going to say. Don't be shy. I don't bite, and I will love you forever for your comment.
