Sunday Readig - General Catch Up
Not much to say this time around as I once again am going to need a few days to catch up on all the stuff that seems to go wrong when I am gone. I already had to wire down one of the small walk in gates as the sheep figured out how to get their heads under it and push it up off the hinges so they could escape into the hay field.
One thing is for certain the grass is now growing once again so this week I need to get the horses moved into their regular pasture.
When I got home from work yesterday I discovered I have a new rusted out old hulk hidden behind my shop. She's a real beauty if you are in to this type of thing and can see the potential in it.
A 1963 Chevy pickup. No engine or transmission but the body is not very rusted out and the front and rear windows are intact.
No it's not mine. I certainly do not have the time for another project and I wouldn't buy an old hulk to have it sit around even if it is mostly hidden from wandering eyes. This is my brother's next project and he has to hide it out here because of his wife who told him no. As you ladies can guess I am all for Men rebelling against female oppression and so he brought it here.
In case you are thinking that nothing will ever get done with this old girl here is a picture of my brother's last project that he finished up this Winter.
Apparently he has somewhat different plans for this old truck though and isn't going to put an original engine back into her but will modernize her a bit. Whatever his plans are they start with taking her down to the bare frame when it warms up I guess.
The downside? I already had one local guy stop and ask me what I was going to do with it. I guess it isn't as hidden as I thought it was.
Keep Prepping Everyone!!!!!
