well we have a new arrival on the farm... she joins Randy the backhoe, Oily the delimber, Lulu the pressure washing truck ... Big Red..... she's a beautiful buxom babe with flashing red lights and a horn that would drive a fireman to his hoses.... poor Big Red was sitting out in some farmer's field waiting for just the right owner..... my son in law... she was cheap and he's got some pretty good ideas what to do with her after he does a few major fixes... apparently she was left outside with water in her pump, it froze... well u can imagine the rest!!! he's a heavy duty mechanic and figures that it shouldn't cost too much and for the price was well worth the purchase.... so Big Red... welcome!!! everyone was having a great deal of fun on her, especially the 'boys' big and little.. varoomm varoom... woo woo.... you name the noises and they were made by the boys umm men that is... a little boy's dream.. having a REAL firetruck some day..... ahhhhhhh for childhood!!! my youngest daughter is planning on taking an airbrake course... hmmmmm
they even gave me a ride in the back... from their house to mine!!!
A message from your sponsor... (ahem) not really......
but a message from my heart... if from this blog, only one person garners information and utilizes it in their lives, then i've accomplished what i wished.... in our rush to become 'high tech' we as a society are losing our ability to be self sufficient or at least 'practical' and somewhat independent souls... nothing is more satisfying than eating a fresh tomato off the vine, or gathering an egg from a chicken that you've tended from chickhood or even inhaling the deep earthy scents after a warm summer rain..... enjoy
