Glad for your daughter they finally made their way through the red tape. Sad what we've become as a nation. You can't even rebuild your own home until THEY
say you can ...

It's actually a really good reliable truck. It's just got a stupid assed problem that has frustrated me to no end. It's a combination of 2 problems I think. We ran it all last winter without one problem, aside from that persistent fuel starvation issue on hills ... but even that disappeared for most of the season! Go figure. When that engine was in the Jimmy, that thing came home on a flatbed more times than I can remember. This one here has never left my wife stranded anywhere - it just runs like *censored* for some reason. I've got a new distributor sitting here, so when I feel inclined I'll toss that in and see what happens. If that don't work, then I know it's the .060" plug gap - because 3 distributors all can't have the same issue. The front diff can wait till spring.
Now for some entertainment:
A month or so back I had this crazy possum doing circles relentlessly in my yard. It was out there for hours, just walking in tight circles! Of course, I just had to film it! Don't know what his deal was. Might've whacked it's head on a truck's axle as it straddle it .... who knows? No blood, but there looked to be a wet spot on it's head, and it's eyes looked all screwy.
After around 4 hours of spinning, the thing lay there motionless. So I figured it's toast, so I grabbed it by it's tail and carried it to the woods ... but I'll be damned if it wasn't still alive! Thought that hissing sound was his head rubbing against my leg as I walked.
So I put him in the woods. The next day he was walking around the yard, doing BIG circles, but at least he'd move on from there. Strange!
Then a week later he was splattered all over the street. Oh well. I tried!
I tried my hand at movie production with some long unused program I found hiding in the trenches of my computer. Enjoy!
