A New Mexico Selfie

Back at work on the Galion road grader, still trying to loosen the stuck but broken ball joint arm by applying heat.  In light of the popularity of selfie's here is a contribution from the high desert of New Mexico, where social media meets heavy equipment repair.

  1. I remember when you were working on this project! This is what makes your life in the bootheel so interesting no 2 days alike. Keep up the great blog 😊

  2. Thanks DiAnn. Yes that was a year long project, but I got it repaired. Right now it is the internet that is giving me fits. I can't get internet access at the Rustic Cabin. I've spent a week on and off the roofs of several buildings trying to trouble shoot the system.
