Life is good.
For some reason, this entry did not post.... Not even thinking about mechanical assistance, I posted about the sssssss I heard from our Emergency brake . I just got a text message from friend Hank in Charlotte, the expert mechanic in diesels, ‘send me a picture of the brake lever’.
I have never mastered the sending of pictures on the smart phone, but I tried. It has been ‘sending’ for 30 minutes now. Is that normal?
(In removing the valve I broke the Oak cover. Fortunately I have a piece of oak and I can replace it.)
I can send pictures by e-mail ok, but I haven’t mastered the phone. I use the voice to text and I must start re-reading the text before sending, I sent a ‘bad’ word in my last text to Hank. Better not trust the interpreting nor auto correct, it could get you in trouble.
But all in all Life is good. It gives you a good feeling for a friend to contact you out of the blue.
Here in Florida we are enjoying the ‘slack’ times before the rest of the snowbirds come in. Even though we are residents, we are more like snow birds. We take off to places NORTH or WEST as soon as the snow stops flying.
Our mail service is 40 miles east of here so we can take an afternoon and drive over. We have friends near our mail service and sometimes we can make a visit work. There are broken hearts since one dear friend has met Mr. Alzheimer's. The disease is taking a beautiful memory. Since that miserable disease has attacked a family member or friend of most everyone, we think at times what it would be like to have NO MEMORY.
Thinking of blessings and how good life is to us, I never forget how blessed Sherry and I are. We try to enjoy life when it is GOOD, because after living this long, WE KNOW life will eventually change for us. Life’s lessons are real, no one is exempt.
Enjoy the sunshine, because into every life a little rain must fall.
Remember (above) THE THING?
Was this a TRans-AM or CAmero?
Now cars today would not do this!!!
