We made good use of our “summer” weather — 5 Comments

  1. Reg,

    That was what Will thought last year so he replaced the points and coil at the same time. No dice; it still did the same occasionally. I think it does that just to annoy us.

  2. RE, the Ford that won’t start hot.

    We had a old Massy combine years back that if you shut it off then tried to start it back up, it just wouldn’t do it. had to sit for at least a hour, then it fired right up. Traced it to the coil. A coil is simply put a transformer. The inside is wrapped with miles of very fine copper wire and if for any reason that wire separates at any point, when it is cool it makes contact and things start and as things warm up they spread apart and the voltage won’t jump the gap. Let it cool down and the gap comes back together and things start again. May not make sense but we replaced that coil only and never had another bit of trouble.

  3. Glad to hear the weather has been good for you. Those peppers look fantastic! Thank you for the update Jackie.

  4. I can’t help myself, every time you talk of flowers, in my mind’s eye, I see the pictures of your mother that you posted back when. Don’t you know she’s smiling down on you? All that beauty makes the work a bit easier. Congrats on the Mule, too!
