    In the 60s I was at an old gun shop deep in the woods of WV and the owner had a bow made from Osage Orange. Supposed to be made a hundred years ago by the Indians. Who knows. I was 8 or 9 years old and when he strung it for my dad. He couldn't hardly move the string. Said it was around a hundred pound pull.

    Lead time... Residue scattered better. Counting down half life gets tiresome.

    Well.
    That didn’t work.
    Well it kinda did.
    Window rolled down, then up, then quit.
    Guess I should’ve went on and got that $180 relay.

    It be continued....

    383ECF9E-2D31-4B5F-ADD0-2C2D3B8A86BB.jpeg New crapcadia life hits a snag. Driver said it won’t go in gear. Offering my limited experience we did the turn everything off and try to reset ,that didn’t work so when he is on the phone with home office they have him go through the motions again when I noticed the driveshaft spinning. I yelled to him call a wrecker it’s not a transmission problem. I got to spend 5 minutes explaining on the phone how this truck has real problems and isn’t being driven anywhere. Everything looks intact and the driveshaft spins and turns the input shaft on the power divider locked and with the power divider locked still nothing happens. This is going to screw my 14 really good.
