    I remember my expedition to check that beast out, Stephen. His ad said something like "runs perfect". When I got there to check it out, he brought out a fresh battery from his shop, hooked it up, hit the starter. Dad-blamed thing never turned over an inch...smoke soon poured off the battery and starter cables...I was sure he was going to burn the thing down. He never gave up on it until the battery started spitting acid out from under the fill caps. By then I was far away, and getting farther by the moment. That was an easy one to recommend against, my friend .

    Still, appreciated you checking it out for me.
    I eventually sold my 51 Willyz. Never found the time to keep on the project. Nice local guy bought it. Thrilled to have it. Lilly, not so thrilled. She loved taking rides in it.
    Interesting how a limited gene pool and a limited labor force seem to be so closely related.

    Yup, girls love jeeps . Don't like these fire pics you're showing us, S. Be careful, and best luck.

    Well, got my place mowed finally yesterday.

    New strings on the mando & old fiddle…Guitar is in the shop getting the bridge glued back down and should get it back in a week or so…I’m ready for the snow to fly!

    Going to try again to get the tractor out onto the driving range this afternoon to pick balls and mow if possible…hoping it’s dry enough today.

    Sometimes...I'm trying out new types on both instruments.

    I think I like them both better than the old sets, but will see how they play & sound after they settle in a bit.

    I have another, slightly heavier new set for the mando...I'll run these for a while then switch & see which I like better.

    Mandolin strings are inexpensive enough to go through several sets before I reach the price of one set for the fiddle.

    Especially since they can somehow tell if you wish them harm...
