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

Good morning everyone. It is raining here in the Deep South and cool at 57 degrees. The fur gang is fine. Suzie has decided not to even come into the kitchen for feeding time. So I will set her food aside for later. Dan and Patty you are in our prayers. Now that the truck has been sold and your friend is coming to get you some decisions have been made and perhaps you can find some peace of mind for now. Good friends are precious and especially when you have one that is willing to come get you and the family and the camper and take you home. Shopping for a new truck can be exciting and it can be frustrating. Go on line and pick the truck you like and then go shopping with a price in mind you are willing to pay. Okay I have a Deacon's breakfast meeting this morning so I need to get moving. Here's wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell asomeone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. What a wonderful day yesterday!! So many well wishers and so many beautiful cards. Last night we went to my friend Ernie's house for a birthday celebration. His wife Babe fixed a wonderful meal and a delicious birthday cake. Of course there were balloons filled with helium. Ernie and Babe's little dogs just couldn't get enough of Sue and I and were always in our laps looking for some attention. Today I guess I will start looking forward to my next birthday and hope that God in His grace will allow me another year filled with hope and assurance that I am in His care. The fur gang is doing well and we are looking for a beautiful day. I have to pay bills today, some of which I am beginning to have second thoughts about the restoration of the 1973 Lincoln. So far we are still under budget but It is still taking a lot of money to bring this car up to show car standards. Sue isn't saying anything but she is watching from a distance as I spend money on a hobby. I hope to be able to sell it when it is finished and find it a home that will be worthy. I don't want to spend money and bring it up to being a great show car only to have someone park it in the yard under trees and leave it and not take care of its maintenance. A friend of mine told me about an old Lincoln on Burgess School Road. I drove over yesterday to have a look at it and was so disappointed to see what was once a majestic luxury automobile sitting in a yard rusting away. It is beyond repair but the body still has a look about it that shows even in its run down dilapidated state it still has an air of regality. I wonder if someday I will look like that old Lincoln? Old, rusted, run down with an air of regality? Okay 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.

Thanks Dan and Gary. It has been a great day. Sue asked me what I was going to do now that I have turned 74? I said I was going to start over.

Glad to hear there is a calm after the storm. There are some nice people out there and yes there are angels sent from God to help us over the rough spots in life.

Dan I am sorry to hear of your and Patty's troubles. I know with your faith you will look back of this and remember how it all worked itself out using good judgment and patient as a guide.

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

Good morning everyone. It is a beautiful morning here in the Deep South. The girls are happy just waiting to get outside for their morning adventure. I have been trying to buy a bumper jack on ebay but I get out bid every time, I didn't know so many people were looking for bumper jacks for older cars. I need the base plate for the jack for the 73 Lincoln. I have found base plates but they don't tell you what they fit. Oh well I will keep trying. I have another busy day ahead 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}

WE have the F350 with the Single rear wheels not the dual wheels. The single rear wheel suspension gives a smother ride. You cannot rotate the tires on a dually which leads to shorter life span for the tires. I am sure there are advantages and disadvantages to both but to me the extra cost for the dually and cost of tires down the road was a big disadvantage to me.

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

Good morning everyone. Dan we have put 30,000 trouble free miles on our F350. It has been flawless. Our trip to Montana put it to the test climbing some of those steep grades we experienced out there and I was amazed at how easily it handled them. The transmission was designed by Allison and built by Ford, great combination. Coming off steep grades just tap the brake pedal and the transmission down shifts and keeps the speed down so you don't have to ride the brakes. It is the quietest, smoothest diesel I have ever driven. We got the King Ranch and glad we did, the extra comfort pays off on long trips when you are on the road for eight hours. The sunshine is beautiful this morning and looks like we are going to have a very nice day. Yesterday was scary with all the tornado warnings out. We didn't have any damage but other folks close by weren't so lucky. We gathered in the bedroom and closed the doors and got next to both walk in closets. The girls huddled with us as did Izzie. It got very dark outside and there was a lot of wind. We didn't see any hail but there was a lot of it just down from us. It was all over in about thirty minutes as the storm moved on North East of us. On the news we saw houses destroyed, trees down on houses and cars and Interstate 85 was a mess from wrecks. This morning the girls are fine not even remembering the events from yesterday. But then maybe they do and just don't show it. 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}

We had a scare this afternoon as a series of tornado's raced across our area. No one hurt but a lot of damage to homes and businesses. Trees down, power lines down and building destroyed, but so far no one seriously injured. Dan be sure to look at the new Ford F350. We love ours and have had great service from it. Great fuel mileage and plenty of power to get the job done. I guess we will see you and Patty in October.

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

Good morning everyone. I haven't taken any recent pictures of the fur gang so I will have to make that a priority. We haven't been anywhere lately except for our trip to Florida with Dan and Lori. Hopefully we will be able to go somewhere in May and take some camping pictures. It is still raining here and the outside temp is 64*. It rained all day yesterday, sometimes very hard. The girls tried to go outside several times but retreated back inside the house. They believe that if they get rained on they will melt or something. Dan and Patty I hope you get your truck back and can resume your travels. Remember if you come our way we have a campsite for you with a full hook up and you can stay as long as you like. 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.

We left the old Fella Rally and went to Michigan and then went to Montana to visit my first cousin I hadn't seen in thirty years. We stopped at the KOA in Billings and this is where the picture was taken. I miss her a lot.

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

Good day everyone. It is raining here in the Deep South with a temperature of 68*. We have been to church and went out for lunch. The fur gang is doing well just taking it easy inside. Suzie is most excited because she thinks she is going to get to chase rabbits sometime today. I don't know what she would do if she caught one. This spring there seems to be an abundance of rabbits around the house. Okay I am going to kick back and relax and watch the golf channel. Hope you have 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. Once again we are greeted with rain, but the temperature is at 65* so it is not cold. I received a phone call last night from a man near Waynesboro, Georgia who is in need of help with his animals. He has been diagnosed with cancer and needs an operation ASAP. He has three dogs one of which is a diabetic and needs two shots a day. I called Old Fella to come to the rescue, hope they get it all worked out. The fur gang is well this morning. Suzie didn't eat her food, waiting for people food to be served to her, what a brat. Dan and Patty I hope you get your truck back so you can continue your journey. Yesterday I found the part for the 73 Lincoln I have been searching for, so now we can complete the restoration project. I can't wait to see the finished product and get to drive it on the interstate. Sue says I had better sell it and not get attached to it. There isn't going to be a new addition to the garage to house it. Okay 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. Keep the snow, keep the heat. It has been wonderful here in the Deep South. Yesterday it was in the upper 60's most of the day, then the sun came out and the temperature climbed to the mid 70's. This morning it is 56 degrees and raining. We expect a high today of 75 degrees. The fur gang is doing fine. They are so happy and playful, even Peaches, Izzie, well Izzie is a cat. I went to the garage to look at the progress of the 73 Lincoln and was very pleased at what I saw. By the time it is finished it will be a very nice car. The dash board was cracked from sitting in the sun on very hot days. I took the dash to the kid in Easley and it is amazing what he is doing. The kid is a genius when it comes to working with metal and paint. His wife works with him and is an accomplished body and paint person herself. I love to watch her work when I am there. She says very little, always paying attention to her work. They are making a good name for themselves in the Greenville area and it shows by how busy they are. Dan I hope you and Patty are doing well and I hope your truck will soon be repaired so you can get back on the road. If you come our way I have a campsite in the back yard you can use with a full hook up at no charge. 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. Dan the Outer Banks is a wonderful place to visit especially this time of year. There are many campgrounds in that area you will find to be very nice. One is a KOA located in Cape Hatteras. WE have stayed there several times and have never been disappointed. Another little jewel is a small town called New Bern, in North Carolina. The KOA there is nice and close to town. The history of the town goes back to Colonial times. The Civil War also is a part of its history. There are enactments of the occupation of the Northern Armies which captured New Bern very early as a vital port and gateway to the Atlantic Ocean. Anyway I hope you and Patty continue your travels and enjoy the time you have to see America's history. The fur gang is doing very well. They didn't like the cold and rain this morning. We had lows in the 40's this morning with a steady rain. We have been so busy we haven't made any plans to go camping and don't see us doing anything until mid May. 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.

Good morning everyone. It is still raining here in the Deep South making everything grow leaps and bounds. Our yard has turned green over night. The girls are fine after breakfast, waiting for me to take them for a walk. However it will have to stop raining before we venture outside. I hope all is well with everyone and looking forward to some warm weather. I need to get moving so I will wish you a blessed day, Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and tell someone you love them. Dan I hope you and Patty continue your trip and enjoy yourselves.
