Meanwhile in the shop. . . our coffee break chairs have been commandeered for the task of holding the all important hoses and the headers .. . .(I'm quite proud of the fact that I'm learning what all the parts are. . .and if anyone steps into the shop to have a look I suggest a quiz)
Oh. . .and what is this? This is the go cart that has been sitting idle . . ..built by my beloved's dad for our boys. . ..it's been hauled out for an important mission.
Carts have been constructed. . .with enough height to be able to work on the cab from its underbelly.
So. . .there it is. . .if you have been following the saga of the rod building, you might be thinking to yourself. . .are we not going backwards? I've asked that once or twice myself. . .
The little weld spots have been finished here and there. . . the motor and transmission and the hoses and the new front end, and the new gas tank and the springs and all the hoses have been fitted,. . .not unlike dress making. .
Now, the whole truck is taken apart.
The frame is riding around on the go cart. . .and is being sandblasted. All the old paint needs to come off and he's learning to sand blast.
Mostly I think about what to cook and what to blog. . .
We're both happy as clams. . .
He's playing make a rod. . .
I'm playing.. . . make a post.
Oh .. .I'm super excited. . .today the annual Mennonite Central Committee Relief Sale begins. We'll go stand in line with the thousands of other people to eat Mennonite Food. .. (I wish I could make it myself). . . smirk. .
Anyways, as I was saying it is a relief sale to raise money for impoverished people around the world. . . .
On Saturday there is the big auction complete with handmade quilts that go for thousands of dollars. . .all donated. . .click here to see a link to this years quilt gallery. . .
Have a wonderful weekend my friends. . .
