    Hubby down in TX. Interesting turn of events with that double truck fix. Got new parts and a wire harness. Shop supply guy quit today we heard. Probably found another job as he was not there Thursday and Friday. Hubby did go in and nicely complain about that whole messed up non repair thing. Now he is getting credited for supply guy quiting. I don't think so as there was no reason from what hubby told me. Unless supply guy was a egomaniac and didn't like his boss pointing out his fault.
    Anyway, very nice check for last week do to 3500 miles. I got some stuff paid but still in the red but we will get there. Now to start on taxes ugh.

    News. Another battery drain turns out starter was bad. So new batteries and starter. It took 5 hours because Frieghtliner kept sending wrong model. Truck is not standard Classic by long shot but piecemeal together. They would not listen to mechanic when he told them what he needed. They kept going by model which was wrong way wrong. Anyway all working now and no time lost.

    Hubby on way home for our 13 wedding anniversary on Saturday. :):):)

    This is the wettest winter yet. UTurnGirl AL is not the only soaked state. I am now leaving puddles on our slope as I walk to feed.

    Anyway, hubby was here over whole weekend. He has now been back North and now headed to NC. New mandatory fuel thing, only allowed to use Pilot/FlyJ for fuel. This is a crock of .... They have the worst rep in their home state. Owner that is under Federal charges for fraud amongst other things. He is based about 3 hours from us here in TN. So he sold off the majority of his shares to help with his case.

    So now Pilot offering for 90 days If you use their App a great discount. Time will tell if it's just another con. Story I have been reading is all truck stops companies are expanding parking. We have seen how paid parking in them has increase alot in some. Too bad they just can't do increase of Non pay parking.

    So now truck is running smoothly and hubby got his replacement LED bulbs from China. 50 for $13 this past week. Alot cheaper than what truck stops charge. They probably buy them in bulk like that and repack them for sale. If you go online to wish.com or even better Aliexpress you get some deals. But buyer beware and read reviews on sellers.

    New things coming to truck now are new mattress and new frig. Old one was old and stop keeping cold. So we will be getting a new one. Not a truck frig but small 3.5 cu house frig. With warranty if it breaks we can exchange it so that's worth it. Costs way less that truck or RV frig and we have a tax write off each year this way if we have to replace yearly. Matress is from a local liquidation place here that we cut a deal with, it will be in later in month. Favor exchange which works great for all concerned. We all know that sleep is important and I don't let this go cheap. What's in now is a cheap mattress what's coming is much better quality. Now to buy new better pillows. It's always something. Got to do same for house anyway so.

    Oh farm wise I have two new goat kids both boys. Totally different colors which is so neat. Just hope rain stops soon before I start loosing livestock like last year. Spring rains lost all my baby ducks that hatched out. Won't see any this year mom's all gone just males left. But don't need that to happen to chickens and chicks or goats. It won't be long now till all sold and I am in truck our female dog is coming into heat again. So when her pups gone this time all stock goes too. Then I will be on the road with hubby for most of the time. Can't wait.
