  1. Me and the Meadowbrook

    It was getting dark by the time we made it back to the car, and I was wishing I would've worn my winter hat! I really need to install the aftermarket heater control valve I got in the mail the other day. Tomorrow just might be the day for that.
  2. Me and the Meadowbrook

    Nothing too exciting tonight, but at least wifey and I got the Meadowbrook out for a ride. We drove over to the Houston Nature Trail to take a walk. It was a perfect night for a short cruise, and for a casual stroll on the trail. The fall colors are really starting to look nice around these parts.

    .Here's a shot right before I got back into the car after our walk.

    Poochies were having fun. When we were about to leave our male boxer was really whining, wanting to go with; which little did he know we planned on taking him. He just wanted to make sure we didn't forget about him. He loves to put his nose by the window and take in the smells. When he's had enough of that he lays quietly on the seat.

    Oct. 8 cont... Wifey and I took the dogs with on a late afternoon cruise to Rushford for ice cream at the Creamery. Then we walked on part of the Root River Trail. As you can see I have my gas can in the trunk now LOL!

    Then, about 2 miles from home the Meadowbrook started to sputter. My heart jumped a bit thinking I have a new problem on my hands and we are going to be stranded. Turns out I was right about being stranded! Of all things I ran it out of gas! My guage is on the fritz again, but I always log my fill-ups on my phone with the mileage, etc. I read it wrong before we drove to church. Thought I had only 100 miles on the tank, but it was actually 200 miles. Good thing was that we were close to home, it was sunny and warm (after having 4+ inches of rain the last three days) and one of our neighbors picked us up after we had walked less than half a mile. Wifey and I went back into town with one of our other cars to get some gas. The Meadowbrook fired right up after I put a couple gallons in the tank. From now on I'm taking one of my spill-proof cans with in the trunk. Either that or I need to learn how to add LOL. Reminded me of back in the 70s my old man used to run out of gas all the damn time. We even ran out of gas on our pontoon one time in the middle of a lake. Luckily we had paddles with!

    Oct. 8 After church this morning we stopped at Kwik Trip for fresh donuts.

    Almost forgot, we picked up some 7 year aged cheddar cheese, crackers, and red wine at the Creamery as well. Last stop was Sub-Zero pizza joint in Houston, MN for a carryout. It was simply awesome, and we opened the wine to drink with the pizza instead of saving it for the aged cheddar. Well, we didn't drink it all! Put 170 miles on the Meadowbrook. Pics are of the countryside looking out from my garage right before I put the car away.

    Dogs were having fun. They like to ride and they picked up lots of smells at our stops.

    Next we stopped at Nelson's Creamery for ice cream. Wifey and I each had a bowl of sea salt caramel. Kids had chocolate. There was quite a number of classic cars driving by and in the parking lot.

    Next we stopped at a boat landing on the way to Wabasha, MN. Before we even got parked a woman stopped dead in her tracks to stare at the Meadowbrook. I pulled up alongside her and she said her dad had a 49 Plymouth that she used to drive in high school. She mentioned that it had the push button start and wanted to know if the Meadowbrook did. I told her its a key start just like her modern car. The kids got to throw some rocks in the river and we took in the great scenery. The landing had a plaque that listed about 10 different kinds of ducks that could possibly be spotted in that area.

    Next we drove to Stockton, MN to fill up with gas. On the way out of the station this guy came across the street. He asked what year my car was. He thought it was older than a 51. He started asking all kinds of questions and listened closely while I explained to him everything I knew about it. He also told me about one of his motorcycles, which is a 1970 BSA Thunderbolt. http://www.britcycle.com/Bikes/DShakespeare70Tbolt.htm Here's the model of bike he has; I didn't get to actually see his. Anyway, I popped the hood and showed him pretty much every inch of the car except for underneath LOL. We talked for about 20 minutes. My son was by my side while my wife and daughter read their books. The dogs laid quietly on the floor.
