Default Over 'Town'

Once you have lived on these islands over 40 or 50 oyears we consider going to the mainland 'Over Town;... Well tomorrow I have to face the cardiologist on the mainland.... We are making a time of it,,,, A motel that likes dogs and driving the truck based woody. The weather is splendid and the road is good...... Don't git much better than that... I backed up to the house, Checked the water, oil and brake fluid.... all good..... OK a good report is encouraging as well.

Good luck with the Heart Doctor GB.....he should be able to confirm if you have one...seriously though, these things aren't fun. I'm probably going to be up for a valve repair, got to have another test myself next week. Make the best of your trip "over town"

The Amish refer to outsiders as "Englishmen" and caution to beware of them. In your case I guess its beware of the "Townie's" Safe travels and hoping for a good DR report.

Gary, hope all goes well with the doctor. I l love seeing you drive the old Ford around. We had a little rain south of you down here in Everett. I know the wipers on my 48 are slow, how are yours working? Best wishes.

Hi GB, What year is the jail bar woodie? I had a 42 military heavy half ton when I was in high school. I learned a lot about the jail bar series . That truck had so many miles on it the frame rivets were all lose and squeaking. They are fun trucks to mess around with. I will give you a shout next time we're up your way on the boat. Tim

Got home this afternoon. Doc says maybe 2 years out for the valve replacement. I can't begin to imagine how they do that up through your groin..... I think I once heard that described as akin to "rebuilding an engine up through the tailpipe" EEK! The trip was Fun! We sure don't get away like we did pre-covid. Let's just say a 'Grand time was had by all'.

There is a worse location down south they could use other than the groin.Sounds like it was a great trip, that is as long as the wife and dog were happy. Thanks for the update and photos.

Dog didn't comment. Wife has said at least 4 times how much fun it was. Weather in the mid 70s, really a nice drive. Drove to an old timey tavern after Dr. visit, 'The Conway Pub', a couple towns further South.
