Default now honey, you know i wouldn't do that

i had to make a road trip today from southeast ohio to northwest ohio, to bowling green, or boring green as rosevink calls it. my son's car broke down last week, and it wouldn't shift in or out of gear. i loaded up enough tools to start an auto repair business in my buddy mike's truck before daylight. i told my wife i was going to take my car trailer in case i had to bring his car back home for the repairs. she said, you're not going pickin are you. i said, now honey, you know i wouldn't do that. well after a 5 hour trip to bowling green university, mike had the car repaired in about 10 minutes. it was a shifting cable clip that broke and the cable fell off. well, that sounds like a job for a little bailing wire. red green would have been proud of us. mike said what now. i said, well since we're only about 45 minutes from jon rosevink's, and i need to pick up a 4 hp milwalkee associated i bought from him, and a silage grinder he hauled to his house from coolspring for me in june, we might as well pay a visit to jon. well it truned into a 4 hour bs session, and a little more than what i intened to pick up, including a outboard boat motor. on the way back home, i said to mike, well since we're only about 8 miles from tom winlands, we might as well swing by and pick up the engine i bough from him in july. i decided to call home, and my wife ask me how the car repairs were going. i said just fine, just took a little longer than we thought. she said that when she came home there was a big engine setting in the driveway. aparently i bought one a while back in wv, and the fella decided to deliver it today. the car repair trip ended up being a trailer load of engines, a engine from wv. a truck load of parts, etc. it's starting to look like the super mega low mart of engines around here. i think there is going to be a blue light christmas special going on soon. i think everyone should buy themselves an engine for christmas, or i mean the holiday season. i will post pictures tomorrow. i'm getting too old for these 16 hour adventrues. i need a drink

rod





ps

wait till she wakes up in the morning and sees the trailer load of engines and the truck load of parts in the back yard. no way to lie my way out of this one

Geee, you went right by me and didn't stop or even wave? Its OK I take snubbing well.

Actually yesterday I was just a bit South of John's myself, to visit my son in Delphos. We went to his favorite surplus store/ scrap yard in Van Wert and just inside the gate I saw a Bessemer oil field engine ( I think?) Was a big ole bessemer anyway. Didnt think to take a pic.

Rod , thats what I would call a decent road trip , and I agree about everyone getting an engine for X Mas . I didnt get one for X Mas , BUT , I did get my 5 HP Desjardins runing a couple days ago with the help of a good friend and club member Fred Cooley . Had this engine almost 12 years , and just this summer decided it was time to do it . Man what a feeling to here that thing fire up after so long , and not knowing how long before I got it that it had been since it ran . Big thanks to Ron from Pa. , at the August show at Portland , and to Jon Rosevink , and Ken Meeks for haveing parts I needed . This was my X Mas gift . Dave

we snuk in toms place at 10:30 last night and had the engine loaded on the trailer before he even knew we were there. probably should have taken his forklift with us before he came outside. by the time we left toms, the big trailer was full and also the bed of the truck. i should have it empty by sunday, and looking forward to the next run.
