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

Went out to the car, 72 Lincoln, to take a trip to the cleaners and found a puddle of oil under the engine. Then when I tried to start the car, the battery was dead. I put a quick charge on the battery and went to Interstate Battery and bought a new battery, then I went back to the place that changed the oil for a look underneath the car to see where the oil was leaking from and found the drain plug was leaking and also the valve covers were leaking and then the rear main bearing oil seal was leaking. I have decided to catch the oil in a pan and recycle it back into the engine. Think of the money I will save.....:B

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

Good morning everyone. I feel kind of woozy this morning, something out of balance, don't know what it is. I will just keep on moving and maybe I will feel better. The girls are fine and Izzie is doing well also. Our trip to the mountains yesterday was great. The fall colors aren't there, still a lot of green. There are some trees like the Maples and Dogwood that have beautiful fall foliage. The wind was blowing hard and it was cold standing in the viewing area looking out over the valley. We had lunch in Brevard, NC at the little sandwich shop just inside town. Always a great meal to be had there. On the way home we stopped at a roadside stand and bought some apples. Sue is making an apple pie this morning for coffee and pie this afternoon. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and talk with you later.

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

Suzie has always been one to want us near at all times. When she is left by herself she gets nervous and defensive. Her family is her rock and security. She doesn't care for change or anything different. I guess the clothes thing is her security blanket and the chewing on the bed covers is just her way of keeping herself calm. She loves to sleep on the bed during the day but at night she will sleep on her bed next to the window and close to Peaches. But at night she is ever alert to any thing going on outside and lets us know if something is out there that shouldn't be. Poor thing, took her a long time to get over the dumpster experience. Some thing out there scared her bad, maybe it was me when I picked her up and she bit me.

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

Good morning everyone. We are taking a day trip to the mountains today with a couple from the church. It should be a beautiful time to view the fall colors in the higher elevations as we have not hit the peak colors here in the foothills yet. The girls are doing fine having eaten their breakfast and now waiting of the Dad to take them for a walk. Suzie has picked up a habit of sliming Sue's pillow. For some reason she chews on Sue's pillow case until it is very wet. Her favorite place to rest is on the our bed. She will pull back the covers and make her a nice soft place to lay and then drag Sue's pillow over to her spot on the bed and chew on it. She has always been a little strange in her behavior. When she was a puppy she would drag dirty clothes out of the laundry and scatter them through out the house. She would also make a bed out of the clothes putting them in her kennel crate. I thought when she was a puppy it was an insecure thing hanging over her because of her traumatic start in life being left at the dumpster. But now at eight years old and having had a very secure life for the past eight years You would think she would grow out of it. Whatever?????? Okay I hope all is well with everyone and Gary I hope you had a great birthday. Talk with you later.

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

Happy birthday Gary. Enjoy your day and think of all the friends you have made in 65 years that will celebrate with you today.:B Today brings hope that the Lincoln has at last been tamed. The primary wire going to the distributor that was found to be broken makes sense at to how the engine was acting. It ran great all the way home, now to see how it acts today. Suzie, Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are doing fine. Both Izzie and Peaches had birthdays this summer which makes them thirteen years old. Sue remarked that Izzie has been through all the dogs starting with Bart and going through Old Fella, Levi, Suzie, Anna, Savannah, Dixie, Charlie, Hobo, Mama and the countless puppies and others that I can't remember. He remains the king of the house and makes sure all is in order. Lily comes over every afternoon from next door and wants in to visit with the fur gang. I let her in and she makes her rounds kissing everybody and irritating Hobo and Izzie to no end. She then wants out and goes back home. Of course this is after our morning walk. She always joins us with our walk through the fields and yards in the mornings. I really enjoy her company and sweet humble spirit. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now. Wishing you a blessed day and may all of your troubles be small ones. However if big ones come your way just turn them over to God and let Him take care of them.

You ever suspect that car might be cursed? :W It has crossed my mind that it may be all of my troubles from the past wrapped up in one package coming back to haunt me.....

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

What an exciting day. The Lincoln acted as if it had really blown up. It backfired with a huge bang, black smoke rolled out of the exhaust and it died. It took a while to figure out the primary wire going to the distributor had broken and reengaged, like switching off the engine with the key and then switching it back on and then just dying. It blew the muffler all to pieces and almost blew the air intake cover off the carburetor. I just knew it was done. Later when all was said and done the only real damage was to the muffler. Repaired the broken wire and all is well.

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

Good morning everyone. I hope all is well with all the FOOF's. Things are fine here. It has been busy with a lot going on with church and friends and Josh and Mattie's wedding coming up this weekend. After the wedding Josh and Mattie are going on a cruise and then to Germany when he is stationed. I hope Mattie can adjust to army life and living in a foreign country. So many things going on with family and church it is hard to keep up with it all. The girls are doing well as is Izzie. Izzie had the time of his life last evening. Sue and I sat out on the patio while he was allowed to roam the back yard. At dusk dark he became almost invisible as he lay along the fence line blending with the shadows of a fading sun. He didn't want to come in so Sue had to go get him, but he came in and was satisfied with his evening out. The coffee was great this morning, fresh from the bean into the cup. The coffee machine we have is so nice as it will brew coffee from beans or ground coffee. There is some coffee that is very strong and some that is mild depending on the brand, but I have learned to like it all. Sue made some blue berry muffins a few days ago and this morning I got the last one. Of course it was with her blessing or else I would not have eaten it. What a great woman and wonderful person of faith that God has blessed me with. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now ands get ready to face the day. Hope you have a blessed day and no trouble finds it way to your doorstep.

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

Good morning everyone. It is in the mid 40's here this morning with clear skies. The high today will be 70, very pleasant day for us. Gary I hope to see you at the Old Fella Rally next year, its been too long since we have seen you. Happy birthday Wednesday and many more to come. I hope the answer Barry sent is enough for those who have questions as to the Old Fella Burke County Rescue operations. Suzie, Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are doing well this morning. Sue is also doing well and is yours truly. We are looking forward to a nice day with some chores getting done. The Lincoln continues to run flawlessly. This morning I am supposed to take it to have the front end looked at, ball joints, drag link Idler arm and such just to make sure all is well. The ball joints need a shot of grease as I hear them complaining as I ride over some rough spots in the road. Yesterday we buried a friend from the church, she will be missed. As time goes on and I see more of life I realize how much Sue and I have been blessed. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and talk with you later. Have a blessed day and hug the fur kids for me.

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

Answer to questions asked about Old Fella answered by Barry McFeat. After reading this thread, I went to the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue website to get a feel for what it is. The first topic states, that you, Richard, got together with other animal lovers and formed the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue - do you have a physical location? We do not have a location. or are you in touch via electronic or telephonic devices? Yes devices, phone, emails and in person when necessary. The website states it is licensed; who is the licensee, i.e., We are licenced by Dept of Ag, GA, annually. L. #. 3398654 expiration date 5/31/2015. OF is also a registered as a 501c3 with IRS and registered with the State of Georgia as a rescue. who is listed on the license as the contact? Margie Riggs. When we donate money, where does it get deposited Queensborough Bank, Waynesboro. 30830 and who is in charge of the account? Barry McFeat. Where are the monthly statements sent? Barry McFeat, 1459, Waynesboro, 30830. Thanks in advance for any information you choose to give! Shortie. I would like to point out the majority of our funds go to veterinary care, e.g. July 2014 general monthly bill $4171.00 plus Spay/Neuter bill $1344.00. Sept. gen. $3186.00 plus $1430.00 S/N. July and Sept were exceptional but nevertheless often around $2K! Funding for ‘free’ S/N for animals not under the care of OFBCAR Inc is provided from Burke Co. Comm.’s ($6k) and from grants applied for by ourselves. The general vet care bills are funded solely by donations and fundraising. No-one in the rescue gets paid any money except for receipted expenses.

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

Good morning everyone. The weather here is just beautiful. Yesterday was a so nice it was good to be outside. Sue and I went to downtown Simpsonville to the fall car show and pumpkin festival. We rode through in our forty two year old Lincoln and watched as heads turned to see it go by. Too bad we didn't have the fur gang with us so they could show off their big grins and happy faces. Last night Sue and I sat outside with a fire in the fire pit. It was nice sitting out there in the cool of the evening enjoying the fall in all of its glory. It is nice to able to enjoy family, friends, neighbors and home. I listened to Sue tell of her adventures with Ava going on the ride to shoot zombies with paint balls. It seems the driver of the SUV wasn't sure how to maneuver the trailer down the narrow twisting road and had some need misses with trees and such. Then he got to place he had to turn around and couldn't make the turn without some help from the passengers. Sue said it was dark and hard to see except when the zombies would come out then lights would come on so the wrong people didn't get shot with paint balls. Okay the girls are doing fine and waiting on Sue and I to go for a walk so I will close for now and wish everyone a blessed day.

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

Good morning everyone. Gary you have a birthday this week so Happy Birthday.:B This morning I had to deal with an app in the computer that somehow found its way into the programs. These updates are sneaky and you don't have any control over automatic updates so when that happens and your homepage is change to something strange it upsets things. So this morning I had to delete some tool bar from ASK.com and it was stubborn to get rid of. Don't go into my computer and change things without my permission...... Now that that is said and done on to the days events. There is a car show in Greenville this afternoon as well as in Fountain Inn that I might try to go to in order to show off the 72 Lincoln. I have too much gasoline left over from the mowing season so I am going to put some of it in Sue's car and save some for the Honda generator for just incase this winter. Stabil will be the additive I will use to preserve it as I have used it before with good results. The girls are fine as is Izzie. Sue tripped over Hobo and fell this morning as the girls were jockeying around the breakfast table trying to get some table scraps. Sue wasn't hurt but Hobo took off just knowing she was dead. It was cool enough last night to have a fire in the fire pit located on the patio. I sat outside enjoying myself while Ava and Sue went on a Paint ball hayride shoot zombies, whatever....... Okay I need to get moving so I will say so long for now and I will talk with you later.

Shortie To get you the answers to your questions I have sent Barry an email with your post to the Old Fella thread. I do this because it has been a while since I have been directly involved with the day to day running of the organization. Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue is a 501C3 and licensed in the state of Georgia as a rescue organization. Barry is the person responsible for the finances and all of the reports so it is he that is better to answer your questions. Yes I did start the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue and appointed a Board of Directors and a full slate of officers from President down to the people who volunteered as foster homes. If you will go back to the website you can read about the animals being transported up north to animal shelters where people are waiting to adopt them and give them a forever home. Each dog has to be certified by a licenses Vet to have been given all of it shots and they are healthy, Anyway, lets hear from Barry and I will post his reply to the thread.

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

Good morning everyone. This morning Suzie came into the bedroom with a pair of my socks in her mouth. Sue has done laundry and put the clothes out to be folded so Suzie helped herself to a pair of socks reminding me of when she was a puppy going into the laundry room and getting Sue's clothes and dragging them all over the house. Just goes to show she still has a lot of play in her. It was in the mid 40's here this morning and we are expecting a high in the lower 70's then it turns much cooler. October is just about done with November hanging just around the corner. The girls will be wanting to go for a walk soon, waiting on me to get dressed. So I guess I had better get moving and face the day. Here's wishing everyone a blessed day and I will talk with you later. Oh, don't forget the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue in your prayers and if you can send them some encouragement please do.

Hi Richard, There are many, many instances where folks have cracked Sendel wheels for no apparent reason. I would be interested in reading about that if you know where some have posted....

We have been gone for a month at a time and our fur gang is always ready to get home. They love the camper, but there is no place like home. http://i153.photobucket.com/albums/s211/Levi449/IMG_6730.jpg

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

I talked with my son Scott about changing the type oil that has been used in the Lincoln since it was new to a different brand. He recommended Rotella T 5w-40 for the Lincoln. So I went on Google and asked about using diesel oil in the gasoline engine and was surprised that it is highly recommended. This will save me 18 miles one way going to a Ford dealer to buy the motorcraft oil. So I ordered the Shell Rotella oil by the case along with the correct oil filter and I can do it myself at home. Susie, Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are doing fine. It has been a nice cool day here in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Tonight it will dip down into the lower 40's. Yep, it is getting colder.

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

Good morning everyone. It was a sad day yesterday as one of our church family lost a daughter. She was about forty years old with children. She was a good person and will be missed in the community. Peaches, Hobo, Suzie and Izzie are doing well. Sue is also doing fine. What a blessing she is and I thank God for her every day. Yesterday I got the wheel exchanged on the camper and SenDel has agreed to take it back and determine why it failed and then make a decision on reimbursement. Today will be filled with helping a family go through the grieving process. Sharron was a beautiful person, so sad to see her leave us this early in her life. Thank God for the families of the church that rallies around a family in such tragic times. By the way the leaves are really beginning to take on fall colors, it will be beautiful here in a few days. Okay I need to get moving, talk with you later and here is wishing everyone e blessed day.
