Do Things Seem To Come In Threes For You?
Not meaning to whine or complain but it does seem to happen that way for us. First the hurt cow, and then the dead cow. The third happened today, not a cow, but the truck. I don't know what the temp. or the humidity was but let me say it was hot enough to drip sweat without straining. Half way to the ranch the A/C on the truck quit working. Truck was heating up and didn't seem to be running well so we turned and started back toward town. Not fun to be stranded in that heat. John was turning the truck off at red lights. First stop a parts place. He bought a belt but no one to install it there. Next to a mechanic shop, already closed at four. Then hunting down a oil field business where a man works that was in the parts place and said to come to the business where he works and even though he was on duty he would install it right quick to help us out. Guess we looked pretty (not pretty pretty) old and hot. He told us to park in back. I hope he wasn't risking his job. When he looked he said it wasn't the belt but wasn't sure what the problem was but to drive straight home by the highway and not go through so many red lights. Luckily our neighbor was off today who is an ambulance mechanic. He has the truck now. I offered to drive John out to the ranch in my truck but by this time the three's had him down.
