Cool and wet today.  Jeep broke down last night.  At least it was across the street from the mechanic.  It won't go into gear.  It acts like the shifter linkage is broken....hope it is that simple!

Morning all.

My friend's '03 Ford Ranger sometimes will get the shift linkage "tangled," for lack of a better word.  It won't go into park or first when that happens.  You have to crawl under the truck with it in neutral (!) and pull the end of the screw from the loop in the S-hook.   It's a factory part, and the mechanic's advice is "stop going mudding in your commuter vehicle."  Valid advice, but it isn't happening...

Sunny day here.  Forecast for 55.  It's 30 right now.

Never had those problems when you put the key in a hole in the dash and hit the starter thing with you right toe. Grin

Last winter one cold night got off late, had trouble starting The Field Marshall.  Had turned the switch on with the key, was in neutral, clutch out, left foot on the brake, right one with heel on the gas, toe trying to find the switch, right had trying to find the choke.   Roll Eyes

Kick the rock from out of the tire, jump in turn key to on, pull the choke out if cold,  put in 3rd gear drift down hill and pop the clutch... Roll Eyes push choke back in and cruise on down the road.... them were the days.

Never had a truck to crank-although the old Chevy did have a crank hole, the 216 engine had been swapped for a 235 and no crank "ears" on the front pulley.
Cranked a few tractors, though. The "A" Farmall isn't too bad. Worst I've cranked was a model "L" Case. 403 cubic inch 4 cylinder. When I was 20 years younger, it took everything I had to start that thing. I doubt I could do it now.

Morning Coffee is up....cooler and overcast here. Saying snow up North East (Ft Payne area)of here over into to NWGeorgia and SE Tennessee. Higher elevations than here


 Jeep is ready will pick up this morning a bit later. It has been an expensive few weeks with vehicles. Bought tires for truck last week. The jeep still needs them also and a new exhaust.

44 and wet....?rumors of snow?  Obviously, it won't stick.
Got the Jeep back.  It was just the cable linkage from the gear shift to the transmission had broken, but you wouldn't know it from the cost of the repair!

Cold, wet, and fairly breezy. Had to have more wood delivered yesterday, which was quite the chore. I asked for the wood to be dropped off over the weekend, cause we need to go to Athens on Friday. "Can't do it, how about Thursday?". Well, the wife is working all week, 7P to 7A, and I really didn't want her being woke up by the dogs. I ask if he could do it yesterday, "nope". After 20 minutes of back and forth texts, we finally settle on Thursday... today. I get a call on Tuesday, "It's 100% chance of rain on Thursday, how about Wednesday?" I swear it would have almost been easier to just cut my own  Roll Eyes

So on Friday, it is supposed to be freezing rain and snow, on our trip to Athens. It is always interesting, when you have a lifelong Flordida Cracker driving in snow  Wink

I learned to always park the Case on a hill at the top of the driveway. Problem was, if it didn't start on the first "pop", then it was in the way, keep trying and it would be in the road, then you need to get another tractor to either pull start it, or drag it back out of the way.

Afternoon all.

Sunny and 60 today.  25 last night, so there is ice everywhere.

Took the dog for a walk, got barked at by some tweaker and his chihuahua while out.  We were a few miles from the highway (which at that point is about 3 miles from town) so I'm not entirely sure what he was doing, or how he got there. Huh  I had the bigger dog though, so it all turned out okay.

Chicken Waffles this evening... i run the “fry daddy” cooked breaded chicken fingers and Suzanne mixed up the waffles and run the waffle cooker.  YUM!   One of our favorites but don’t have it often enough.

We had some 4 letter word stuff over night. I guess Slim left his doors open. I hope it turns to rain soon.

Thanks for the coffee.... 33 and snow on the ground! 
Should all melt by 900...high of 44 today.
The Jeep got me safely to work, and didn't encounter any ice on the road on my end of town.  Some main lanes were shut down in town, north and west, too.  Houston just isn't prepared for snow....darn global warming...

Mine is back- the rattle from loose converter shield is there still- same bald tires.  But all those new coolant parts are shiny.

So since it was snowing- i decided to take it to feed store and get some feed and be able yo keep it dry in the hatch.  Got there and they apparently can’t work in the snow.  Will call them in morning to see if they are open before i drive

Afternoon all.

Got down to 19 last night, according to the thermometer.  Crystal clear sky, so no fluffy white stuff.   Might get some up north/higher elevation tonight, though.  We'll see.

About to head out with the dog to make another video.  I made one impromptu yesterday, but I've been planning this one for a while.  Hopefully it turns out okay.  I just have to find my folding saw. Roll Eyes
