Well, I have been without a car for 4 of the last 5 years.
Sometiomes I wonder how I've done it and I'm not too good at sayin' it and I'm not sure how much of it I believe...but...
Someone has been watching over me.

So last week I bought a pick-up truck.
Its a 1975 Chevy Cheyenne, rebuilt Motor and Transnmission, two gas tanks, new battery,new tires and re-done interior. Even has a wire rack to put your cowboy hat on.
I'm thinkin' about turnin' cowboy on ya.
I have pictures and will post them later this week.

For now I just want to say that in the first week I had this truck I have managed to leave the lights on and run the battery down TWICE.
It doesn't end there.
Even with two 15 gallon gas tanks on board, I managed to run out of gas!
And right now as we speak I have two spare tires on board, but NO LUG WRENCH!

Ain't that just like an Addict?
Cars are such a pain in the ass.

Kinda like computers though, they're great when they work, but when they don't, *&%$#!!

Hey, I have a 75 Chevy too, and it might even be a Cheyenne. Mine also has a rebuilt engine and transmission, and a bunch of other heavy duty upgraded stuff that my truck crazy nephew drools over and complains that I never use. It has a plow and winch on the front. I tend to run the battery down too. I have to use a screwdriver to start it, and when I turn it off, apparently I always leave it in the accessory position instead of off. Cars are a pain in the ass.

Grow your own wool, mows grass with a Scythe, raise chickens and milkin cows!

HI MOM! Remember back a couple years ago when Annnelisa had to teach us how to link?
