I was planning to go for short trip, maybe out to central Texas just to get out of the house and also try to burn out some of that old diesel that I bought back last Thanksgiving. I still have a half a tank, so must have only put less than 400 miles on it. It holds a hundred gallons but I don't know what kind of fuel mileage I am getting. Actually, it was probably a lot less since I have only taken it on a couple of short trips and all the other miles were back and forth to get tires or repairs or service or something; all local trips with a lot of idling. The longest trip I took was up 59 a ways to meet up with Sixbears and his wife and his dog when he was in Texas visiting his in-laws. I will have to postpone any trip right now because I got an email with another job to do.
We found out that an old friend who lives in Pennsylvania was back in the area visiting her family that lives only a few miles from me. She lives near my Aunt (the one we send cards to) and we met her at the flea market last year when she was down here baby sitting her grand-kids. Last July, when we were up in Pennsylvania, we stopped and at their produce farm and had a great visit. I showed a picture of them and told about visiting with her and her husband on this old blog: http://dizzydick.blogspot.com/2011/08/reviewing-my-wandering-part-1.html
Remember I told you that I only had a couple of paying jobs this year and liked it like that? It is nice to get a few now and then to keep me in practice and to get a little pocket change. This is a fabrication design job that I did earlier this year and my customer's customer decided to change everything. It sounds simple enough but involves almost a complete redraw except for a lot of the details. I will first have to redo the solid model so that I can project new fabrication drawing and they can get this job done. OK, maybe next week I can take a drive somewhere. You all have a great day and try to stay cool, you hear?
