Chas'n car parts

Boy howdy, here it is another week end. Where did the week go? But, when ya get to think'n bout it, what exactly is a week end? I know that for a "worker....that's the guy that punches a clock, the week end is a couple days rest. But for the retired person, we don't get no days off. We have a 7 day work week and only get paid once a month.

Yesterday turned out to be quite a day. If ya make the round about trip from Sinton to Aransas Pass, then to Corpus Christi and back to Sinton, that's right bout a little over a hunnert miles. Well, that's what I did yesterday. Ya see, I told ya I was gonna replace everthing under the front end of "that jeep"....tie rods, tie rod ends, steer'n damper, bushings....that kind of stuff. So I hit every auto parts store between Sinton and Aransas Pass. No parts....have to order. What the hell??? At Autozone, the nice parts guy tells me I can get everthing I need in Corpus Christi. Off to Corpus Christi me an' Sadie Mae go. With parts in hand, and $200 lighter, I head back to Sinton so's nephew Joseph can install them.

Where the hell is nephew Joseph? What you mean he's in San Antonio? The tie rod tools are locked up in the storage container. I ain't got no key. Had I knowed he was gonna stay in San Antonio till midnight, I would have bought me a tie rod tool and be done with the job. Damn I hate crawl'n up under "that jeep".

I get up early this morn'n so's me an' Joseph can get to work fix'n "that jeep". He jumps in his truck an' poooof, he's gone, just like that. Now where he go'n???

I suppose everbody knows me an' OFM Barney will be swak'n golf balls Monday morn'n....right? Ok, so you don't like swak'n golf balls....but the old Billy Bob do. When life begins to wind down, ya do the things you love to do. And are still able to do. I won't be restor'n no old antique tractor in the near future. Or dig'n in the dirt for gold. Only so much you can do when ya get me age. I guess I could take up knit'n or something like that. 

* This post will be updated after whiles.*

Ok, here's your update. Front end tie rod replacement finished and adjusted. Out of 12 bushing points, 6 have been replaced in the last 3 days and 4 ( ball joints) in the last 2 years. That leaves 2....drag link bushings. Since I don't plan on drag'n anything....well, you know what I mean. ( What the hell is a drag link???)

  1. Maybe your nephew Joseph is tired after working in the oil rigs all week and is taking some time off...
