It's a little early, but I figure since it was late this month, it all balances out.

I hope everybody has a Marvelous May!

Busy is more than right. Lots of rain causes lots of grass. Lots of grass causes lots of mowing and trimming.
And then the garden needs work when I can get in. Lots of blooms.
And the deck needs re staining if it ever dries out.
And the house needs power washing.
And the cab is off the F4, almost ready for paint.
And the F350 needs an oil change.
And the F150 needs an oil change.
And the F250 needs an oil change.
And the Wrangler needs an oil change.
And FTE needs checking often.
Yep, busy spring in Tennessee.

I'm with ya, raytasch. It's been hectic this spring....and it's raining cats & dogs again. My yard will be a forest by the time the rain stops at the end of the week.One chore at a time....one chore at a time.

Hope everyone is staying dry and warm this weekend.

Spent the weekend at the Pickin' in the Park festival at Village Creek State Park on Crowley's Ridge. It didn't rain all day, but it was cold Saturday. Not a big turnout.

I think I need to quit kidding myself and track down a very used Fiesta, Festiva, Capri, or Escort beater car that gets good mileage and at least puts some wheels back under me again. Anybody knows of a (FORD!) thing like that around my area drop me a shout in the PM box. It's gotta be cheap, and last long enough for me to finish the Ranger. I don't want to dish out a bunch of cash from the truck fund

A rough Wednesday on my end....but it's almost over. Hope everyone has a great day.

Wolf, have you checked some of the smaller, private garages in your area? Around here, there were several who had vehicles they were repairing that the owners skipped out on. Most places just want their money back from the vehicle, and don't necessarily charge what they are worth. Good luck on the hunt!

He's exactly right, or just drive around in the country or state highways, people who have cars parked in their yard with a little for sale sign usually don't advertise for them. I have found great deals like that. Good Luck
