Ford’s Ford

Here’s Henry Ford’s personal Model T. Note all the custom features. That guy believed people should be satisfied with simple, basic transportation. At least he practiced what he preached. Photographed in Henry Ford’s personal garage at Fairlane.

No post yesterday. And Short Shrift tonight. As mentioned previously, we went to The Theater last night. The show was very nicely done. Lots of good points – the acting, the singing, the musicianship, the sets, and the direction. I had a little trouble staying awake during a few of the quieter songs, but nothing serious. We all enjoyed it.

But we got home after midnight, so there was no blog.

Almost no blog tonight. It was my turn to go to work on my off Friday, and then I went straight to the Oakland temple and met Loyal Reader Number Four, who had gotten a ride from some friends. It was stake temple night tonight, and there was a pretty large crowd. We filled up the biggest room in the building.

On the downside, I got out of the office later than I had intended, and missed my dinner. I was pretty hungry, but I suppose it helped keep me awake. Have no fear, Loyal Readers; I made up for lost food upon arrival at home tonight.

Loyal Readers Numbers Five, Six, and Twelve are coming over tomorrow. It’s stake conference weekend too, so there will be plenty of meetings; less time at home than usual on Saturday and more than usual on Sunday. Can’t complain.

The truck, went back to the shop today to have its defective front brake job fixed (they’ve been overheating quite seriously, including once when they faded badly (link note – I may have to get some of those things) and again two days ago when they faded slightly – not good!). They replaced everything (pads and rotors) they did the first time. We’re picking it up tomorrow and are very hopeful for better results this time.

Have a great weekend. See you on Monday.
