    where there`s smoke there`s fire .. i have mentioned a time or three in previous posts that i live a half mile from a cotton gin .. iv`e mentioned the smell of dust and defoliants as they go through the ginning process from october to december .. i may have even mentioned the smell of rotting cotton bows that emanate from the 50 ft high piles of shelled cotton hulls but i dont think i have told of the stink that comes from when the piles spontaneously combust ever year about this time ..and for the last 40 years having the fire department show up and be able to do nothing .. it will just have to burn it self out and i have to hope the wind blows in the other direction which rarely happens ...

    What do they do with the ash?
    When it's cooled it would be good for your garden.

    around here we sometimes get the smell from dairy farms and cattle feedlots in the spring when things first warm up. a few years ago the Farm harvest contractor Did not use a moisture meter when he baled our hay too wet and after a couple weeks the spontanious combustion was starting and some bales started smoking. He had left his big forklift loader and I was able to spread the smoking bales out in the field and they cooled down and the smopke stopped

    as stated in a post or 12 back i am hankering for a 5 speed to go in my pinto .. i dont have clutch pedals yet but i have a lead on a trans ,, a fellow on craigslist locally has a 4.3 S10 with a 5 speed for 1300 bucks .. that`s a few hundred more than i want to spend so i will wait him out till he drops it to maybe an even grand or so .. it may be more than i can deal with as i think the S10 should have a hydraulic clutch .. i have not looked into that yet ..but iv`e figured out worse things ..

    it`s 1976 and i`m cruising around in my R code 69 .. just left a buddies house .. he has a 351 blue 69 as well .. i leave a 4 way stop and another friend whips up beside me in a 440 challenger .. of coarse we get it on .. he jumps me about a fender and holds it there till we let off at the bottom of the hill .. he in the left lane barely misses a car coming up .. later in the day my buddie with the blue 351 gets a ticket for a drag race he did not do .. my car was blue as well .. years later he was telling me about getting that ticket .. i admitted it should have been mine ..

    Yeah, but only two of the four will happen again next month! Maybe set the stimulus check and tax return aside for that 5 speed?

    recently a customer at work came up to me and said " aint your last name Moon ? " yes i said .. he then pulled out this menu from a new business that had opened up recently in Huntsville .. to my surprise it`s my fathers picture on the menu .. its` also my father name of the business ,, come to find out a company had bought the building that my father worked in for nearly 40 years and renovated it into several small businesses .. the owner of this establishment found this picture of my dad in the area of the place that he was making into his store .. so he named the store after my dad .. i have not been there yet but a couple of my brothers have ,, my dad worked there 40 years or more as supervisor of shipping and receiving .. this picture is from 1955 .. the year i was born .. several other brothers and even i worked there for a while ..
