Morning,
Currently 47 brrrrrrrr
Coffee is mighty fine,
71 with highs in the 90ties in Yuma today
5 months to go can't even say SHORT yet.
Well we replaced all 3 Power steering hoses in the 64 yesterday man what a mess. 1 High pressure and 2 low pressure hoses, again thanks rockauto.com

If it ever gets warm again here I've got to start rewaxing the MH, that Arizona sun takes a toll on it. Not that bad really just the front cap really needs it but might as well do the whole MH again. We'll see how the shoulder holds out, might have to find someone to do it for me.

Have a appointment with the wound clinic this AM, my foot is starting to heal finally going on almost a year Been on some strong anti-biotics the last week and a half. There office called me the other day with a message to start on a different one. I'll find out this morning what the cultures showed.
They have me wearing a special shoe that prevents the toes from bending, which prevents the wound from breaking open again. This is the second one I've had to wear. Not pretty.
Steve sounds like your holding your own, I know about low funds.
Some great pictures you've posted. How long are you staying up there?
That's about it from here,
Those on the road be safe,
Tim

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee is good this morning, Looks like we might get some rain later today. Severe weather has been just behind us since we left Branson, hope that it stays that way, there was an EF 3 tornado just out side of Paducah, Ky where we were Monday night, then the monsoon type rains in Nashville the day after we came through there.
Steve,
Great pics, looks like you are having a wonderful time.
Tim,
Glad that you got the hoses on the '64. Sure hope that you get that foot fixed up so you don't have to worry about it anymore.
Bap,
What a find. Looks like your FIL likes to keep busy. I don't know how you can keep finding all these old trailers, I haven't seen that many of them sitting around even in my travels around.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good morning, everyone.

Busy lately, so have not had much time to write; just following everyone else.

Jeff: Do you have a picture of the VIN that you could share? I did find this article: metzendorf [Tin Can Tourists Wiki]

Rail, Glad Monica is doing so well.

Tim, Get well soon.

Popeye, You have been quiet lately. Miss your comments.

Terry, Nice work on the Tot'r from the other thread.

Frank, Glad you missed the bad weather. Stay safe and enjoy. Hot Florida will still be here when you get back.

Steve, Thanks so much for the photos. The roads sure look different than my early 1970's trip on the ALCAN Highway.

Lloyd, Have a safe ride and enjoy.


Me: Lot's of work to get done. So, off I go...

Everyone, have a great day.

Good Morning Everyone;
Well they say the fires are pretty much out in Ft McMurray. Now the waiting begins to see how fast they can get the city infrastructure up and running so folks can start returning to the homes that did not burn. Although 2400 structures were affected the news says only about 10% of the city burned.

BAP - great before pictures. Now we are hoping for some in progress photographs and then of course the final product. Really would appreciate seeing one of them at the Goodmorning Meet and Greet.

Still dry here. No rain in forecast even mid range. Bit of smoke haze here this morning. Still out working on the yard. Preparing a new raspberry bed and will plant in a few days.

Have a great day everyone.

Back again,
Foot is doing better the gal used a scalpel and held it at a 45 degree and cut cut cut. I have no feeling in my foot (Thanks too my bad back) so it was pain free. It's looking better after, so another 2 weeks of soaking, meds, and wrapping it up to keep dry and back to see her.

Gordon,
MMMMM Raspberry's my brother has a huge patch with all sorts of them, Red,Black ,Yellow, Orange. When I mow I stop by and eat to my stomach hurts... Glad to hear that the fires are residing. We had it happen here many years ago and that was called the Great Hinckley Fire of 1894.

jeff,
My brother has that trailer in your last picture at the farm, we use it as a fishing house during the winter. He has another one sitting in the horse coral. I'll have to take a few Pic's for ya.

Frank548
Thanks I'm glad too, now I can drive her. Shes just a little heavy for manual steering...

We have to go out to Tractor Supply (I love that place) to get the part for my Cub Cadet. Nice afternoon drive, I'm temped what to take, the MH the 64 or the concourse the 64 convert wins hands down
Have a good afternoon,
Tim

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee is good this morning, beautiful morning here in South Central Tn, rained pretty hard yesterday evening, but beautiful clear skys this morning.
Enjoying our visit with Dad, but getting antsy to get back to Fl (We consider that home now)
Charles,
Tanks, how is the building coming?
Bap,
Keep the pics coming, Dad is 89 and still outworks a lot of people that are half his age., so I understand what you are saying about your FIL.
Gordon,
Glad that you got time with your granddaughter, the things that you teach her will stay with her for the rest of her life. Most of it, she would never see if it wasn't for you.
Tim,
Glad that the foot is getting better. Enjoy your drive with any of the Caddy's, the were GREAT cars back then.
MK,
Hope that you get the Jeep done to your satisfaction.
Have a great day all,
Frank

Good morning all;
Currently 30 F. Hopefully this is as cold as it gets until next fall.

Going to be a lovely day as it is supposed to warm up.

Have a great day.
