I had a nice surprise at work.
Jayce and Erika came by during lunch.

He's a little shy to the girls around the office,
but comes around and is so funny.

Love how he says please and thank you.
Not many kids know the meaning.

He just melts my heart.

Test Drive

Tonight after work, we hooked up the rv and did a
test run around town to see how it would pull.

It did very well, but the starting and
stopping is very different.

Now I'm ready to go !

Truck Hitch

Saturday our new hitch was installed in the truck.

It's a much better hitch than we had and stronger.

With this kind of hitch, just have to remove a couple
bolts, pull a lever and slide it out of the bed.

While we were checking it out, Puddles just had to get in.
He's not to sure about all the extra room he has.
My guys, love them !
Now we have to do a test run pulling the rv around town,
prior to going on vacation.

Jayce and Hats

Jayce just loves hats.
Erika (mom) said he would not take it off in
Target until she promised to buy it.

Just love this little fellow!

Wordless Wednesday

Saturday, July 19, 2014


As several of you already know,
we had truck problems during vacation.

While going up the mountains pulling the RV the truck
would drop speed fast. The turbo was not pushing
power to the motor.

We took it to Asheville Ford and spent $2,000
to get it repaired and had to rent a car for the 3 days.

Every thing was great while driving it around town.
But once we hooked up to come home, the turbo
would not send power to the motor.

I called the service guy that had been helping us to let
him know that once again the truck would not pull and
that was the problem we had brought it in for.  I told him
to call our local Ford dealer and informed them of what
all they had done to the truck.

I prayed the entire time, on our way home and me made it.
No tow truck !

We talked about taking it back in for repair. Since it was
not fixed the 1st time we decided that what repairs they
did would not be the repairs that were needed. They would
say it was something else and cost  more money.
Like the turbos needed to be replaced.

Our decision was to trade it and get a bigger motor.

Here is Garry's new ride.
The old truck was a 250 short bed, this one is a 350 long bed.
It has more get up and go, so we are hoping it will pull better.

I have called Asheville Ford several times, hoping to get some
of my labor charge back, but on one has returned my calls.

 That's how life is, always someone out there ready to screw you over.

Garry loves his new truck and that's all that matters !
