Up at 04:30AM with my bride for coffee, then she was off to the truck company and then the restaurant.
I took everything out of the back of my truck so my son could make a run with the scrap metal and aluminum we have piled next to our out building for scrap, when I went to pull the fiver hitch out, it is mounted on sliding rails, evidently it was rusted in tight since it hadn’t been slid or taken out in 8 years, I put a tow strap on it and attached to a tree and moved forward until it appeared to be sliding, once it was at the rear of the truck I got out and that’s when I noticed the two side plates got bent. Rather than taking a sledge to them I took them to a welding shop that can heat them and press them back into shape. Just want to be safe when I reinstall the hitch. Costs for this $100 there goes any profit from the scrap run. The good part is they will be ready Monday so I won’t lose the use of the fiver at all.
Tomorrow at 08:00AM is Rigg’s Vet appointment, he does pretty well and likes the Lady Vet he has.I think she likes him too.
Not much else going on at the Ranch , still in the ninety’s but they said a chance of rain later, we will see.
Be safe out there. Sam & Donna……..
