Gracious, Raymond and I have had quite a day. A day that included the purchase and installation of a new battery for his red truck (needed to get it on the road again after a winter in the Manse’s garage), which seemed to go swimmingly until it turned out that the truck also needed a new alternator. And how did we find this out? Like this: on Raymond’s way to the dump (second run of the day), shortly after this photo of all the lawn debris (raked up by me) packed into it was taken, the truck just – died.
But thanks to a very prompt and efficient CAA-dispatched tow-truck operator and the good folks at Derry’s Dipsticks garage in Madoc, the truck is well on its way to being fully charged again (and will be all set come morning). Which can mean only one thing: more dump runs!
