Used the 47 to take MBL (My Beautiful Lady) to breakfast and grocery shopping. Then I just went out and exercised the odometer a bit.

Charlie helped me move some red oak fire wood home from a job site today. Had the rear springs pretty much flat with this load of fresh-cut, un-seasoned oak, Took a few hills in 4th gear no problem. The truck drove and acted liked it liked it. A lot. A good truck, like a good man, likes to work. As 1 Thessalonians 4:11 says -- Make it your life's ambition to live quietly and work with your hands (Milliman Translation).

Hambone helped!

I like the "work with your hands" part. I split and stack almost every day. Work on the '55.1 5700 COE in my spare time. Winter is coming...47 degrees this morning. But what about the rest of that translation..."live quitely". That part is my work in progress.

I'm envious of the '47 tool'n around in South Carolina. And you always feel good after haul'n a good load of wood.

Last Saturday about 6 of us truck guys and gals got together at Chris’s garage to work on my truck. Pam brought some breakfast tacos that we all enjoyed! Then Chris and I adjusted the valves on my 216 with 101K miles. It now sounds as quiet as a church mouse. Then everyone pitched in to help install my Fulton visor. It went in easier than I had expected and turned out fantastic! Then it was time for a short 10 mile cruise together and a few group pics. On the way home we passed a custom ‘54 parked in a front yard, so we just had to stop. We met Bob and Stephanie who turned out to be two of the nicest people you’d ever meet. Turns out it was her truck that Bob had built for her. I’ve never ever seen someone so excited to see our trucks as she was! Apparently she loves the old AD series trucks and just squealed when she saw ours! It was another great day spent working on and driving our old trucks with good friends.

Last Saturday, my ‘50, a ‘51, a ‘67 and a ‘72 VW bug made the trip from San Antonio to New Braunfels to attend the 1st Annual Uno Rios Car Show on the bank of the Guadalupe River. The weather was nice with a bit of cloud cover and the show was well attended with about 80-100 cars and trucks. The show supported various veteran groups, which was great. Lots of Harleys too. I got in my truck to leave and it wouldn’t crank. The battery was completely dead like I had left the ignition switch on all day. I gathered up several guys and we tried to push start it but it wouldn’t fire. Then we Googled how to jumpstart a 6 V from a 12 V and it said to just hook up the cables without starting either vehicle. We left the cables on for a couple of minutes which was enough to get it started. I said my goodbyes and then remembered I had left my folding chair, so I parked and left the motor running of course while I went back to retrieve it. When I got back to the truck the engine had died. That’s when I knew it was time to call AAA. About an hour later I was on the back of a rollback and headed to San Antonio. I was positive and focused on the fun time I had all day at the car show with my friends and not the $269 it cost me to get home.

Note.... I believe the problem is a bad battery. I put the trickle charger on the battery when I got home after disconnecting both cables and it wouldn’t take a charge.

You got off easy,I hurt a automatic trans in Florida and it cost almost 900 to get the car back to Ohio.
