Took Ms Kathy for a Saturday afternoon drive in the ‘62 C-20. Just a slow ride out in the country. Counted 20+ Hawks setting on fence posts enjoying the sunshine and light breeze. Seems to be a bumper crop of young hawks this year. We have several that hang around our ranch. Between them and the barn cats it keeps the rats in check. Checked the recently replaced transmission cooler line for leaks when we got home. No drips seen.

Drove the 37 pickup to the next town this morning for a photographer to use for Christmas pictures and post cards. It turned out to be a nice day and a good day to blow the soot out of "ole blue" as I call it. I may just drive it to Church tomorrow too.
A good day for sure.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

Drove the 49 pickup up to the lock and dam and meet a buddy of mine. The weather was in the upper 50's with not a cloud in the sky. We sat and swapped lies for about 3 hours. There is a lot of joggers, walkers, and people just parking to take in the view so we got a lot of thumbs up and and few questions. Great day to get out with the ride.

Took my wife on a nice cruise on sunday. We got a lot of thumbs up. All the roads were dry and the salt is basically all washed away for the most part. Truck just clicked over 37k. Had 27k on the gauge when I bought the basket case of a truck and I drove it for probably 2 months with no speedo hooked up so im guessing I have probably put about 12k miles on it since its been on the road in july of 2019.

Just a short drive around the neighborhood, the first in several months. It was close to 60 degrees and sunny, a great day for a drive. The truck is pretty dirty from sitting in storage, but it didn’t matter. It felt good to take advantage of the nice weather.

A teacher, but always an apprentice.
I charged up the GMC and took her for a little spin a couple days ago with my boy. Drove home and my wife and daughter were waiting for their ride. They hopped in and we all went for a 2nd gear crawl down the back roads. My 22 month daughter wanted to drive. 😉 I love driving that truck. I love my family. What a great combo.

Wife and I got out again last Suday and went to our favorite park across the bridge in Henderson Kentucky. Picked up lunch and went for a walk afterwards. Our Cruise-in's here in southern Indian start in about 4 weeks. At least I hope they start.
