Maytag Man traded in his cap for a new name--Traveling Man. Dick’s brother Bob recently made him an offer he could not refuse. He’s easy. If Dick delivered to New Hampshire the big equipment trailer Bob had recently bought in GA, Bob would give MM, oops, Traveling Man, the trailer in NH that it was replacing.
Having just finished putting a hitch on the “new” truck that then needed a good testing, T Man left last Saturday for NH looking like this… and came back Tuesday looking about the same, but with a slightly different trailer. That’s right—he left North GA on Saturday morning, drove all the way up to New Hampshire, spent the night, and was back in N GA on Tuesday…2,300 miles. Crazy, but T Man does not mind driving for long hours at the time.
Other than running out of fuel in northern Virginia on the way home, and getting a ticket for not having safety triangles out while stopped on the side of the Interstate, it was an uneventful trip that let him rest his bum leg, or so he said. Remember the recently torn muscle? Yes, rested that leg for 2,300 miles. Hmmm…
Anyway, this “new to him” trailer needed cleaning up and painted, so turning it on its side made it easier for him to work on it, and not have it be so hard on his back. This black stuff is a rust deterrent, so the whole underside is coated with it.
Four gallons of paint, and several days later, the finished product looks like this:
Oh yes, I forgot to mention that T Man HATES to paint. Really hates it. But, he now has a good trailer to safely haul *stuff* with, so that made it all worthwhile. He’s happy.
Goodbye April. Hello May! Enjoy your day, y’all!
