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

Richard could you post some pictures when your garage is finished? I need to do something, either build a new garage or add on because my truck does not fit (garage is 2' shorter then truck). Be glad to do that for you.

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

Good morning everyone. SNOW IN THE FORECAST for Western North Carolina which is just a hop skip and a jump from us. Last week we went to Brevard, NC to see the fall colors in the mountains which is about thirty miles from us. So maybe they will get some of the white stuff by the weekend. The fur gang is fine and well fed this morning. I start the count down for the biopsy next week. I will be glad when this is over and done with. The garage is just about finished with a few coats of paint left to complete the job. The Lincoln is nestled in with tender and care while the weather changes with cold in the air. The mountains will be blanketed with a white winter dress while we sit by the fireside and take our rest. Okay enough of that. Wishing everyone a blessed day, talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone. It is another beautiful morning here in the deep south. Yesterday the Lincoln got its place in the garage with the door being closed. The guy who did the work was very professional and did a great job. We have an engineer who comes over every Tuesday night for bible study and he looked it over and gave it his approval. Now to get the sheetrock work finished today and then get it painted tomorrow. The fur gang is well. Suzie was little upset yesterday with all the people outside and the sawing and hammering going on. Last night when the guys came over for bible study Suzie was put in the bedroom to keep her out of trouble and she chewed on the bed covers and pillows again. Hobo and Peaches are always with her to keep her company but she isn't satisfied with that situation. She wants to be where I am and be the protector. Sue usually goes out to the camper while the guys are here so next Tuesday night Suzie will go with Sue out to the camper and hopefully Suzie will be satisfied. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now, talk with you later and have a blessed day.

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

Richard did you forget about Thanksgiving? When I was young it was the only time of year that Dad's family got together. There was so much home made food and deserts. I sure miss those days. Thanksgiving was always special as well. Thanksgiving day was the opening of the Quail season. I would get up early and meet dad at the farm and we would spend the morning hunting. By noon time we would head back to the house, clean the Quail and mother would cook them along with the usual turkey and all the dressings. Grits and Quail would be eaten before anything else, and of course the home made biscuits. Soon the family grew apart with age and illness. With the death of my father Thanksgiving at the old home place soon went away. When Sue and I moved into the old home place in Waynesboro back in 1990 we tried to restore the Thanksgiving spirit but it was never the same. We soon found ourselves going to Florida each year to visit Sue's Dad and Mother who went south to get out of the cold winter weather in Michigan. When Sue's father and Mother died we found ourselves staying home by ourselves as the children went their many ways. However it was Christmas that always brought family back together.

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

Good morning everyone. It has been a busy morning so far so I am late getting to the thread. I got an email from my oldest daughter that was so heart warming. She has really found peace within herself and I am thankful for the man she married and how much he has influenced her life for the good. The fur gang is doing well this morning as we just got back from our walk. Lily must be tied out on the back porch at her home as she was barking and did not come walk with us. The modifications to the garage is supposed to start today so hopefully it will be done by the weekend and we can park all of the Lincoln in the garage out of the weather. I have eight more days until I go for the biopsy and then wait to see the results. November is just a few days away and then December my favorite time of the year. Christmas tress and decorations and all the Christmas songs and the scent of floral arrangements in the air. Fruit cake and pies and all the fun food that comes with Christmas. Yep, can't wait....

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

Good morning everyone. It looks as if it will be another beautiful day. The girls are fine after a good night's sleep. Izzie is still a cat. Today will be busy with getting the garage modified so the Lincoln can get in with the door closed. It looks as if the problem with the engine cutting off has been solved with the ignition wire to the distributor being the problem. So we are looking forward to a nice day, enjoying life and family. I hope the first stages of a kidney stone prove to be false, don't think I am up to that right now. Okay I hope everyone has a blessed day. I have to close for now and get ready to face the day.

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

Good morning everyone. Busy day with a lot going on. The fur gang is doing fine, just got back from a walk. I'm tired and the day hasn't even gotten started. Yesterday was a banner day with the wedding and saying good bye to the grandchild and his wife. They will be living in Germany for at least one year if not two, depends on what the army wants of him. But they seem to be happy, as newly weds are and excited about their new life together. I hope everyone has a blessed day. Talk with you later.

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

Good morning everyone.I think we are all high maintenance when we reach a certain age. The Lincoln has certainly had its issues and may continue to do so. I just hope to get some relief for a while so I can enjoy the ownership and joy of having a relic from the past. Today will be a busy day. I have an early morning breakfast with the Deacons from the church as we start the new church year. Then this afternoon we have a wedding to attend with one of the grandchildren getting married. We had the rehearsal and dinner last night which went well. I have lived long enough to preform the wedding ceremony for a grandchild, how special is that???? The fur gang is doing well this morning have gotten up a bit on the early side they have now eaten breakfast and now wondering what is next. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now and wish everyone a blessed day.

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.
