I'm home!
« on: June 07, 2019, 02:08:58 pm »
I'm in the carport right next to the Peamite just like old times.  I have a lot of inside things that haven't been hooked up.  Chip closed his shop and decided to work for someone else fixing tractors.  He told mom that he's making lots of money there.  Mom feels sorry for him because he's always dissatisfied.  I wish I was all put back together, but I run well and that's going to have be good enough. 

Mom's going to use me mostly as a farm truck.  That's OK.  I know that the Peamite won't break something and have to be towed.  There's lots that I can help with around here.

Nothing feels better than being home and serving a necessary purpose.  I can do many things that my carport mate can't do.  I feel loved.
Keep on Truckin'

nope. Neither does my AC.  Mom feels bad about it, but as a farm truck it won't be such a big deal.

Not on me.  Nothing on me has ever been an easy fix.  Mom wanted gauges rather than the idiot lights that I came with.  instrument panel that Chip put in me is different from the one I had.  the plugs in's don't match.  It has to be hand wired.  Chip said it was the hardest part.

...not sure if that would matter for the radio wiring?.....

Hi Mug.  This is "mom".  I'll look and see if the radio is under her seat but it's probably in Chip's shop. 
Always move forward. Never look back.
