RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. What beautiful weather we are having here in Caledonia. The girls are really enjoying themselves. I remember Mama's last visit here. She was so happy and enjoyed the open fields where she could roam about exploring. She was such a winner. When she came into the family at ten years old she adapted to our life style as if she had always lived with us. She bonded immediately to me am became my shadow. So much love, unconditionally and always eager to please. Bought two tires for the truck yesterday, so we are ready to hit the road next Monday. As it stands right now we plant to go south and south-west. Indianapolis will be our first big city and then we will work our way to Clarksville, Tennessee and on to Nashville and then to Knoxville and then home. It is raining right now and it will rain all day according to the weatherman. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

We totally understand. We avoid road construction when ever possible ,even driving many miles to avoid. It is a much better and safer trip to keep moving. The rough roads may have been the reason for the tire failure on the truck.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard. What happened to the tire? Did your tire monitor system give you any warning? Why are you avoiding Louisville? Traffic or road condition or?? Have a good visit with your family and I hope the dogs all have a good time. The tire gave no warning, it just blew. We are going to avoid Louisville because of road conditions due to construction work, terrible to go through. It took over an hour an half to get through once we got to down town and across the bridge. I would go two hundred miles out of the way to avoid that again.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It has been very cool in in Caledonia. It was in the 50's again last night and the high today will be 72 degrees. Suzie went swimming in the lake yesterday. She did not like the cold water too much, but she played a little before getting out. Ouch!! the price of a tire for the truck will take your breath away. $316.00 mounted and balanced ready to roll out the door. So there is construction around the Dayton area. I haven't looked at the map but I think I will go back to Indianapolis and head directly south away from Louisville how ever I can. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them.

I HOPE YOUR TRAILER DOESNT BOG DOWN IN THE MUD////////// The camper is on a concrete pad. The pad is narrow so getting on the pad when the street is narrow is hard.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. It is cold here this morning compared to home. It is 54 degrees right now and a high today in the upper 70's. Brother-in-law wanted to back the camper into it's parking place yesterday. Last time we were here the camper's curb side tires made some ruts in the yard so I decided this was a clue he didn't want that to happen again so I gave him the nod and said have at it. By the time he was finished the yard was torn up big time. I didn't say a word about his ability to back a 5th wheel trailer but he drew a big crowd from the neighbors as they watched. Where is the camera when there is so much fun going on? The ground is very soft here, black soil beneath the top soil. At first the trailer cut ruts about four to five inches deep next to the pad, but by the time he had run over the same spot four of five times it was very deep. Anyway we are here looking forward to a week of fun with Sue's family and then heading back home. We will not, let me repeat, we will not go back home through Louisville, Kentucky. I will take my chances with Dayton and Cincinnati, Ohio. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning. We start out today without a spare tire for the truck. Have about 386 miles left to travel.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

God was with us today. The right front tire blew at 70 mph today and when it was all said and done we had traffic backed up for miles while Kentucky State troopers helped get us out of traffic, called a service truck to help with the tire. It could have been all over for us but some how I managed to keep it between the ditches. What a mess.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Okay I will be signing off until we reach Caledonia Michigan Saturday evening. The weather is much cooler there so I am looking forward to getting there, opening windows and let the cool air come in. I hope each of you have a blessed day tomorrow and you enjoy family and friends. Give the fur babies a hug fur me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. The camper is hooked to the truck and the groceries are in the fridge and cabinets. The fresh water tank is 3/4 full, the generator is in the truck bed full of gas, tire pressure has been checked, the lug nuts have been checked, the truck is full of diesel, tire pressure checked DEF has been checked, oil level has been checked. Today I have to prepare the back seat for the fur gang to ride, put all the books in the cab for Sue to navigate. the GPS has been programed. Today Sue and I have to load clothes dog leashes, shoes and whatever is left on the list of things to load. Yesterday I cut grass as Sue got out the weed whacker and trimmed along the driveway and sidewalk. We were both worn out at the end of the day. I hope all is well with everyone and you are enjoying the summer. I know it has to be cooler somewhere than it is here. The heat index is awful with that being in the 100's. I covered the 73 Lincoln so it will be protected while we are gone. There is a place in the yard that is shaded most of the day so I felt that was a good place for it. The cover will help protect it from bird dropping and whatever else falls from the trees and sky. The weather is cooler in Michigan right now so we are looking forward to being there. Once we hit the road I am sure I will be fine and I plan to take my time and be in a hurry to get there. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Burch I am glad you and the wife made it safely to Texas. I an running behind this morning so I will have to be brief. The heat continues to be brutal, can't get outside to cut grass and take care of things that need attending to before we leave. With Doctor's appointment, Church work, dealing with the fuel problems with the 73 Lincoln, getting the generator in the truck and getting the camper up on the drive so it can be loaded, all to much right now. Maybe we will leave a day later. The temperature will be close to 100 so once again the heat will be dangerously high. The fur gang is well and waiting on me for a walk before it gets too hot outside. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Burch have a blessed trip and we look forward to your post. It has been so hot here lately. The fur gang have been happy to stay indoors out of the heat. I start today getting the camper ready for our trip. The weather in Michigan is much cooler than here in the Deep South. The fur gang is well hanging out near the A/C vents in the house. I went out yesterday running errands. I had lunch at the Greenville Airport with Hank Brown. Hank has a business at the airport in Greenville and Donaldson here in Piedmont. He is a deacon at Reedy Fork and a very good man. I hope everyone has a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Safe travels to you Burch. It is so hot that being outside in miserable. I need to mow the lawn before we leave for Michigan so I will try to get to that as quick as possible. The girls are fine and Izzie, well Izzie is still a cat. I have a busy day today taking care of some responsibilities for the church, making sure the deacons follow up on the visitation list they received and passing on a list to one deacon that another deacon wasn't able to accomplish because of health. I feel such a burden about some things that are happening. There is so much to do and so little time to do it in. I worry about the direction of rescue in Burke County as they struggle to meet the demands placed on them and so little help to accomplish their goals. Foster homes are needed and volunteers to help with collecting the strays and transporting them to the vet. I guess this will always be a problem with this type of work. But the rewards are so great when you see the happiness in the eyes of those who give homes to these abandon souls and their response to the love they are receiving for the first time. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Happy Father's day to the fathers. It seems the heat wave is on for the Deep South. We are going to see temps close to 100* all next week. Maybe the weather in Caledonia, Michigan will be cooler. Yesterday Jeff and I had fun at the car show. We had the only Lincolns there. Most of the vehicles were classic trucks. One 56 Thunderbird showed up late in the morning, it was nice. Burch, back in 1966 I had a Comet GT with a 390 engine. I did some work on it to increase the horsepower, boy was it fast My neighbor had a Ford Galaxie 500 with a 426, try as much as he could he couldn't beat the Comet. Well the fur gang is doing well, staying inside as much as possible with the heat. I need to get moving so I will wish everyone a blessed day, Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them,

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Good morning everyone. Burch I hope you get your work finished before it gets too hot. Next week the forecast is for temps to be in the lower 100's:E Maybe Michigan will be cooler when we get there. Today Son-in-law Jeff is going with me to a car show. We are taking both the 72 and the 73 Lincoln. It is an outside show so I am sure it is going to be miserable hot. This may be my last show until we find one indoors. With kind of weather it is not your best time to be sitting out in the sun and heat. The fur gang is doing well, staying in out of the heat as much as possible. Lily came for a visit yesterday when she got tired of being outside she came to our house and wanted in. Once she took a short nap and cooled off she was ready to go home. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur gang a hug for me and tell someone you love them.
