    Actually the fellow I had in mind drives an old Dodge one ton diesel with a flat bed you can almost see when the junk is removed. It's rust and metallic blue with half of a vertical exhaust stack on one side. I guess the other side just pours out somewhere under the hood. It's lovely. Good guess on the Dodge.

    The master cylinder under the transmission tunnel threw me. Usually it is under the hood, except on the flat nose trucks.

    If I were you, I wouldn't get into that truck. The exhaust can kill you.

    I'm fairly certain that everyone everywhere drinks a lot.

    Actually, it's beside it, but I think it's been somewhat relocated due to rust. I had a 1956 Chevy 2 ton logging truck which had a similar location, but it surely isn't the norm anymore. I rode in "Earl's" truck up what he calls his driveway once to give him a hand unloading a piece of equipment (trackhoe) he was hauling in for repair. Yup. He's a heavy equipment mechanic. And no, I wouldn't ride in anything old Earl touches. It's hard to believe the exhaust hasn't killed him, but usually he's so drunk it'd be hard to tell.

    Alcohol and exhaust is a deadly combination.

    it happens all the time.

    I know. I don't know why Earl is still with us. He once rode an old riding lawn tractor down the road in the middle of February to mow his long dead mother's grass. He fell off the mower, into the ditch and laid there for over an hour with his bald head on the road passed out drunk. I finally called his wife to get him before a car or truck came by. There's not much traffic here, to say the least, which is a good thing for Earl. Fortunately, he lives about a mile away from me.

    If they are anything like my Aunt Annie in rural Pennsylvania. they work from daylight till late at night. She still cooks on a wood-burning stove...some of the best food I have ever eaten.. has a bunch of very polite children, keeps chickens, has a garden, helps with the farm critter butchering...and her lifestyle would kill me in a week! She doesn't have time to drink!

    Greetings, lizzie.
