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

Good morning. I got up this morning and fixed breakfast for the whole family. Sue and I got beacon, eggs, grits coffee and toast with some orange juice. The girls got their usual breakfast with some extra little goodies mixed in. Looks like it is going to be a beautiful day here in the Deep South. Yesterday I was talking with one of our church members who has just adopted a fawn that is four months old. He had a buck he raised from a baby that grazed with his goats. He was so tame he would walk up to anyone. Bruce found him last Labor Day weekend a year ago dead in the pasture. Someone had shot him in the head at close range and left him lying there. Bruce has a gift for taking care of animals and his nature is so gentle and kind. I have known him for four years now and have the most respect for him. He was just elected to serve as a deacon for the next three years and I look forward to serving with him. Ernie Jordan's daughter is visiting from New Hampshire and brought pictures of her new adopted rescue shepherd mix. As I look around the church family I am seeing more people adopting companion animals and wonder if something is rubbing off? The girls are fine and happy this morning. Suzie is gaining weight. Her back is getting so broad she is having a hard time jumping up on the bed. Peaches has started this habit of dancing around the bed room at first light. I don't want to ignore her as she may really have to go outside. But there are times I think she is trying to rush things so she can eat her breakfast. At night just before going to bed Peaches wants to go outside early so she can get a treat. Then at the regular time for bed she comes back in expecting a treat. She has gotten to the point that every time she goes out and comes back in she is looking for a treat. If she doesn't get one she immediately wants out again to only turn around and want in again expecting a treat. She thinks she has got this whole thing figured out, but what she has done is make me doubt her taking care of business and playing me for a treat. There has been times I have lost and Peaches has used the bathroom inside the house. When we go for a walk all the girls love to stop and smell where the other dogs have been. So it is walk and stop, walk and stop until I get tired of the walking and stopping that without looking back I am dragging a dog that has squatted trying to pee. Life is so exciting sometimes isn't it?

Good for you and a great ending for Jackson. Older dogs make wonderful pets and are so willing to please.

Good morning. We have had a light rain this morning and the temperature is warmer than it has been. The girls have been fed and I have had my breakfast and now finishing my cup of coffee. Look at the Old Fella Rally and see the prizes that are going to be raffled off, some great stuff in the offering. The setting for the rally in the Smoky Mountains is a beautiful place and there will be lots to see and do. I wish everyone a blessed day. Talk with you later.

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

I felt lazy this morning and didn't get put of bed until 8 o'clock. The girls wondered what was going on when Sue and I didn't respond to their barking and running around in the bedroom.. But now we are up and breakfast has been served and we are ready to face the day, well almost. We went to Appling, Georgia yesterday for a wedding and on the way home I hit a small deer. I felt so bad about it but there was just no way to avoid it. The mam deer came across the road first followed by the fawn a few seconds later. I almost missed it but hit it with a glancing blow from the rear wheel of the truck. Other than that we are okay and have a busy day scheduled. Here is wishing everyone a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

There will be a lot of people arriving on the 15th which is two weeks from next Monday. Wishing everyone safe travels. Dan the gas cap fix wasn't all the problem. We are installing an electronic ignition in place of the old point and condenser system. I really hope this works out, if not I don't know where to go from here.

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

The cool mornings are very nice. It was 65* here when the sun came up. Peaches was up and dancing around wanting to go out before the roster crowed this morning so I put her back to bed for another fifteen minutes of shut eye. For those of you who keep up with college football Texas A&M really jumped on the Carolina Gamecocks last night. Looks as if it is going to be a long season for Steve Spurrier. We have a wedding to attend this evening close to Augusta, Georgia. Our daughter's brother-in-law is getting married for the first time. He waited to find Miss right and I really believe he has. The girls are well and happy. Suzie has really been feeling good lately as she wakes up wanting to play. She will find her favorite toy and has the best time. The toy she likes best in the one that belonged to Mama. Its as if she is remembering Mama by keeping her toy very close. I really miss Mama a lot. Hobo has done well without Mama, I wouldn't have believed that would have been true, just goes to show just how resilient our pets are. The Old Fella Rally is very close now. We have some very nice prizes to give away at the raffle. There is a knife store close to the campground. It is called the Smoky Mountain Knife Store, can’t wait to get there and look at all the different kinds of pockets knives they have. Been saving my money to buy one. Okay I need to go for now. Talk with you later.

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

I feel so good this morning!! I lay in bed and had a good talk with the Lord concerning every thing that is going on in my life and He said He would take care of it all. Next month I will begin a new journey in my faith and work in the church. I really believe in all of my years of service that God has been preparing me for this year to come. I will be Chairman of the deacons and my charge is to lead them into a spiritual realm of service that pleases our Lord. Our pastor has laid the ground work and Lanny who served as Chairman last year followed his lead. The stage is set to bring a higher level of service to the people of the church. Poor Chuck, he is having such a hard time with the Lincoln. Yesterday he had it running and took it for a test drive only to have it fail again. Now he doesn't know where to go or what the problem is. I think at this point we tear into it from the ground up replacing everything that has to do with the ignition or fuel system. In others words jack it up and drive a new running system under it. The girls are fine and sassy. Hobo was so happy this morning. She is really such a special girl. Her understanding of life and belonging to family is so simple. Sleep, eat, get loved on and let out to take care of business and every once in a while go for a ride in the truck. Okay I need to get moving, Have a blessed day and I will talk with you later.

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

Take some money with you when you go to get the truck checked. With the new Fords and their coolant, it will require an additive, the first time, and a flush and refill the second time based on what I read. Okay I checked on line and found out I could check it myself and reset the computer. I did just that. The coolant level is fine and it will carry the engine down to -40* so I saved myself $$$.

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

Good morning everyone. It is a beautiful day with cool temperatures. The girls are fine and waiting for me to go for a walk. The Old Fella Rally is getting close and we are looking forward to seeing all the old Fella friends. We had our regular meeting last night for the men of the church and it was really exciting. Starting in October I will become Chairman of the Deacons and my good friend Ernie Jordan will be Vice Chairman. I couldn't have a better person to serve with than Ernie. I am waiting with baited breath on a phone call to tell me the 72 Lincoln is ready for pick up. I am so glad to have the hope that all of the fuel problems have been solved. A conversation with Dan started me thinking about what else could be the problem since we have gone through fuel pumps, carburetors, filters and a gas tank sending unit. Remembering buying a gas cap started the ball rolling to focus in on the problem of an unvented cap. Such a small item that caused such a big problem. Okay I need to get moving, talk with you later.

Thanks Vickie for the heads up. Maybe its time for a good work up on Peaches at the vet.

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

Good morning everyone. It is confession time. As you know there has been problems with the 72 Lincoln concerning fuel delivery problems. We have been through three carburetors in the past few weeks. With each one something was destroying the inner workings of each one. Last night it came to me what the problems was. I bought a gas cap for the fuel tank a few weeks ago and that is when the problem started. It turns out the cap I bought was non-vented causing a vacuum to build up in the tank restricting the fuel flow to the carburetor. This vacuum pressure was destroying the power valve inside the carburetor as well as pulling down the pressure from the fuel pump. Now all I have to do is call Chuck and tell him what I have come up with. I know his blood is going to boil and his face will turn very red when he hears this. This whole episode has made both of us look like amateurs in the automotive field and both of us together have about eighty years in the automotive repair. Okay enough of that. The girls are doing fine. Peaches got into trouble this morning when she was caught eating dog poo from the back yard. After a good talking to and a finger shaking in the face she said she was sorry. I have a lot to do today with errands to run for the fur babies and Sue and myself. A light has come on in the F350 telling me to check the coolant additive, Another way for Ford to make money for me to take it to the service department so they can say its okay and turn off the warning light. Okay enough said about this and that as I need to get moving. Talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone. It us the start of another week. The girls are fine and I understand all the rescue pups and dogs that was sent up to the shelter in the North East have been adopted. The Old Fella Rescue is doing a great job as they continue in saving the lives of many adorable pets. What a difference Old Fella has made since 2005. I think back to Labor Day weekend nine years ago and how events changed the lives of many. Those were exciting days filled with suspense and drama as Old Fella's transformation took place from being a stray to an Icon of old stray dogs. His legacy continues as the rescue effort goes on in Burke County, Georgia. Next month there will be an Old Fella Rally in Sevierville, Tennessee. If you haven't registered for this event please visit the rally page and read about the Old Fella Rally and sign up. There will be lots to do and see in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. Old Fella Rally

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

The heat today has been just terrible. You could not stay put long because of it. The girls went out and took care of business and quickly wanted back in. We ate lunch at the Crazy Crab and once again the food was great. Tonight we are not eating anything. Tomorrow we will make our way home and look forward to cooler temps.

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

What a beautiful place to stay. The campground is so well kept and in an area that there is endless things to do. The food in the area in plentiful and fits every taste. The shopping is endless, you can shop till you drop or run out of cash. Television, There are so many channels to watch with cable, over the air and satellite you have a hard time deciding what to watch The girls are enjoying the new surroundings, except the heat is awful. Today is our last day. I don't know what we am going to do except hang around the A/C.

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

Glad to hear you are having a good time Dan. It is very hot here in South Carolina. Hilton Head is a beautiful place but vey busy. I hit my head on an open cabinet door today and with the blood thinners I take I bled like a stuck hog. There are times when being blind in one eye has its disadvantages, like not see things and bumping into them on your blind side. Peaches is really getting hard of hearing. She will be startled when you touch her some time as she doesn't know you are close to her, Her right eye is bad also so she doesn't see from that side when you approach as well. We are inside the camper where it is nice and cool. We went out this morning to Tanger's shopping stores and spent some money. I got Sue an early birthday present she wanted so she is happy. We came back for Lunch at the Sunset Grille that is in the campground and the food was very good. The bread pudding for desert was really good. We will walk the girls in a little while when it starts to cool off. They have been so good on this trip. I don't know why but they decided to sleep in the bedroom with us forsaking their beds that are in the living area. Suzie jumps up in the bed with us, not being denied a soft spot to lay on. Tomorrow we will go to some of the other stores and shop for whatever Sue's little heart desires. She is always looking for anything on sale. Okay I am going to say good night and I will talk with you tomorrow.

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

We are at Hilton Head RV Resort and what a beautiful place. We are lucky and got a water front site that overlooks the marina. Next door is a five star restaurant that I am looking forward to visiting. We had an easy trip, nothing exciting along the way as everyone behaved themselves and stayed in their lane. The South Carolina State Troopers were out in force after we got one Interstate 95 and they had a lot of customers. The fur babies were excited when they got out of the truck and saw they were somewhere different, Suzie has gotten so talkative as if she thinks we really understand what she is saying and the frightening thing is sometimes I do understand her exactly.
