Glow Plugs... Went out to plow yesterday and had a hard time starting the tractor.. Used the Skidsteer and that even started hard. (thought the diesel gelled). Removed all the glow plugs from both, one bad on the Skidsteer and three bad on the tractor. no wonder it won't start. Went to the Cat and Cummins dealers today... $38.00 for one glow plug for the skidsteer (figured that at Cat), and the Cummins dealer wanted $43.00 each for the tractor.. WTF.. the guy behind the counter went and talked to his boss, they sold them to me for $30.00 each.. geez no mark-up on those.. at least they did me a favor.. too cold to fix them now, better luck tomorrow.
checking out hunting clothes at fleet farm. Everything is made in china yet the prices look excessive. $30 for a fleece balaklava? 50-70 for a basic hunting vest with few pockets? I can recall 30 years ago a pair of those green wool pants made in canada for about $12 . Now from china for $50. Somthing isnt right and I blame the name brand marketing schemes more than anything.
Must be a wife thing with the brunch........Mine thought we were going out this morning but I grabbed her a squished egg sammy and some cheesy bread stix after gassing up the truck at our local Kwik Trip. She's slightly pissed, not too bad, she must have been hungry........
I love breakfast food. Eggs, sausage, pancakes, I love it all. I can make a great breakfast right here at home for less than 5 bucks. I can also go to one of the local diners and get a great breakfast for 10 bucks.
I have a very hard time waiting in line to spend 35 bucks on a brunch but my wife seems to think the eggs taste better if it costs more. End rant- I’m headed out to eat some 35 dollar eggs.
You new in town? I heard through the grapevine that you know about trees and stuff lol
