Sunday there and back again

And home and out and home again. Went to Calcis with a stop at Wally World at Jacksonville first. After checking the spare tire to see about putting it on the right front as the one on there has a cord broken or something and bounces at certain speeds, only to find the top of the spare was dry rotted. Put it back up and then got to thinking that the Toyota tires were about the same so went and measured the hole spacing and it was the same. Soooo took one of the front tires off the Toyota truck, carried it up to the front parking area where the Ford was, jacked the Ford up and removed the tire and put the one from the Toyota on. To find the dish (???) depth was different and it rubbed the brake backing shield. 😦 So took it back off and put the original tire back on. Put the Toyota tire in the back just in case we needed to have it put on the rim of the spare and headed out. Did the Wally World thing and on the road we go. Decided after a consultation with Google maps to try 77 to 78 to 231 as it showed to be overall an hour quicker than the way we have been going. And it was. If not for the vibration would have been a good trip. Took a break at our usual boat launch for lunch on the tailgate and then on into Calcis. Cleaned weeds out of some tire planters for Martha then added topsoil to them and got them ready for her tomatoes. Got an old hair wash stand for the base that was rusting away under the house down there. Sat a read a while in the shade till the mosquitoes started eating on me then got back in the truck on the shady side and read some more. Cat got finished with computer and such and we headed back. Got in and made a call about the forklift and then made a run to get some hydraulic fluid and money to get needed parts. Took a side trip to (where else?) Wally World, this time in Anniston and then came back home. Rebuilt the fire and cooked and then ate supper and finally sat down at the computer for a bit to type this out. Am gonna do a bit of surfing and then read a bit and call it a night. So till tomorrow… 😉

    Had a somewhat mobile day meself. Did the Sunday school/church thing, and then the wife expressed a wish to go to Jack’s for lunch. Sounded good to me, so we went to Jack’s and ate. Decided to go for a ride in the country, and went all over northern Calhoun/little bit of southern Etowah counties. Came back home and did a few things around the house outside, and then carried some trash off, giving the dogs a ride in the process. Much fun was had by all. Did supper and watched a little TV, and then went to bed to get ready for work. Spring break is over. Oh, well….

    Have a good day, and good luck with the towmotor!
