There is a beautiful old church in the area where I'm temporarily staying. It is well maintained and loved by the small town (pop. 391) it is in.
Not far from the family compound is a shop that restores and rebuilds old vehicles, mostly for the locals. I promised the restorer that I wouldn't tell where. He did give me permission to post photos of some of his work...
This is grandson Colt's other ride, though now he spends most of his time in his work pickup. Farming doesn't allow him a lot of free time, especially around here.
T, the restorer is finishing up a complete restore of a local farmer's pickup from when he was a kid. When it's done it will go to the farmer's daughter. I heard it being test driven the other day, and I'm pretty darn sure it's got a bit more HP than it originally had.
Really wish my photos where better as he does beautiful workmanship and his attention to every detail: engine, brakes, wiring, etc is amazing.
I don't know who he did this one for but it is sweet...
I've been trying to make as many of granddaughter Lauren's games as possible, while I'm here. She's gone from playing basketball to softball in the last month.
Met with the accountant in RB on Friday, and that went well. As I've said before there are many good things about living in a small town. The accountant and I went over the figures, he called the estate attorney (whom he is good friends with), and said, " I see no reason why we can't get this finished and closed out!" Then he instructed me to make some changes to the estate bank acct. I told him that was doable as I could certainly swing by the bank on my way out of town. About then we both realized it was a Friday afternoon... so he said "let me make a call to the bank" (he's on the board of that bank) he told them what he wanted done, and that I would stop by on my way out of town. I went by the bank, and was told it was all taken care of, and to have a safe drive home. This could have been a headache in so many ways, but it wasn't at all. Like those small town Wrangler wearing accountants and attorneys!
Loving that my daughter and all the kids get together for a family meal once a week. It isn't always easily done as they all work full time, Cody & Lauren are full time students as well. Plus, they all do other things for the community: helping neighbors, coaching sports, being 4-H leaders...
