Not Quite Finished

We only got three of the new spark plugs installed yesterday, after doing everything else.

Seems I'd forgotten how early it gets dark, here, and we had to stop at 3 pm because it was getting too dark. With the heavy overcast and sunset at 3:55, we were using entirely too many flashlights and trouble lamps to make crawling under the truck worthwhile.

So, come mid-day when my helper, i.e., Older Daughter, is available, we'll get those last three plugs, and then I'm good for another hundred thousand miles. :)

Y'all have a great day out there, and thanks for stopping by.

Rev. Paul,

Routine vehicle maintenance needs to be done to keep our vehicles running. It's good to have a helper :-)

Rev. Paul said...

Agreed, Sandy - thanks!

Circa 1950's we had a neighbor who, although blind, had a firm grasp of things mechanical. He asked my father to help with a tune up. They went into the garage where he opened the hood and started explaining hat he wanted to do. The conversation went something like this.

"Virgil, I need some light before I can work".

"Well alright Bob, if you insist".

It seems Virgil had a built-in advantage. Thanks for the smile, sir.
