Don't adjust your set. . . the picture above is dark. . . I noticed that as well. The farmer has finished his barn cleaning for fall and he's back in his shop having fun.JD has been spit and polished for the next dirty job. . .but for now. . .he sits and looks in the window of the shop. . hoping for a glimpse of his master . . . and closest friend.
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. . .
