Never ending to do list

Dag burn it Billy Bob, every time ya git that "to do list" completed, ya turn right around an' add some more stuff to it. Now look what was added to the list.
1. Back up monitor and camera. This may be a toy to some, but it's also a very important tool. "Sally da house" ain't got no back winder to look out of to see what ya gonna run into, or if "that jeep" is still back there go'n a hunnert mile a hour down the road.
2. Replace the flexable air extension thingys on the valve stems on the dual rear wheels. The old ones were bout wored slap out, cracks an' stuff, so's I had longer stems installed when I got the new tires. Check'n air pressure and adding air is now a major task....need them flexable stem extension thingys.

Went off to the Tractor Supply place this morn'n with son Billy. Bought me up a pair of bib overalls...yeah I did. Whether I wear them or not is yet to be seen. Then while I were look'n round, I fount me a new fish'n hat. Guaranteed to catch 14 pounds bass fish in the bright sunshine. I will model these duds and post a pic....maybe today.

I don't know what it is, but I just cain't seem to get off this "old age" kick. I feel like it's bout time for the old Billy Bob to settle down somewheres. But that too ain't no easy task neither. I ain't say'n that I gonna give up on travel'n round the country or nuttin like that. I been do'n that for 10 years. But I ain't got no place I can call home. Property prices are so far out of reach of my financial ability that I may have to give up on that idea too. All I want is bout 2 or 5 acres next to a good bass fish'n lake, golf course right across the street and a Walmart within a couple mile or so. Of course I gonna have to buy me a bulldozer, backhoe an' a dump truck. Would settle for a old beat up Farmall or Ford tractor.

  1. LOVE the picture!!! I hear you wondering what the future holds. We do have a place to park our old class C, it's close to Walmart, but no big garage, no acreage. Will keep watching to see how you work things out. You have a great blog; I check it every day.

  2. Well you look right smart in that, there get-up. It reminds me of them folks down in middle to south Georgia. Any how I did what you told me to do a while back(especially sense you supplied the stuff) i glued my grill back in place ( on the truck). Well I need to be going, time to pick the young-en up.

  3. You look mighty impressive in those overalls. I sure wouldn't want to tangle with anybody that looked like that and your handsome, too. Now me, I used to wear them but not any more. I have an old Farmall 200 that needs some fix'n. Can you tow it behind your motor-home?

  4. Wow! Is that you, Billy Bob? You look mighty handsome in the overalls and hat!

    I guess I'm lucky I have a little house, but I don't like staying in it too long a time before I'm itching to go somewhere. Ain't no cure for wanderlust except to keep moving.

  9. I just got back from a week of camping in the mountains with our oldest daughter and her 4 kids. While there I had problems with my converter, I was able to get it to work some by jiggling the wires. This morning I removed the lower section of the unit ( it's a progressive something) and like you I drilled out the rivets and took off the top and found that the big blue 12v wire was loose in it's soldered connection at the circuit board. The circuit board was a bugger to get out but, I got her done and fixed. I put her back togeather and man is she charging up a storm. Save that converter because this may be the same problem with yours. If you need any help let me know. I love the Bibbs.

    1. From what I figgered out when I pull that cover off and see that puffed up capacitor and the solder joints loose, this sucker can be fixed. Be it 5 years before I tackle the repair....who knows?

      Hope you camp'n trip was fun. Good to see ya again.
