New Wheels

I found a great replacement truck, and even with the step up to a 3/4 ton, I’m pleasantly surprised at how good the fuel mileage is with the diesel engine.

I’m excited to try running biodiesel. Apparently biodiesel tends to clean out the fuel tank, so I need to be ready with a new fuel filter in the truck in case I have to change it while I’m out and about. Watch for me in a white truck now!

Whenever someone says they are “too old” or “too young” for something, I wonder if the reason for it is really that they are afraid of failure or even afraid of success!

I have so much admiration for people who are open minded and willing to try something new – at any age. My daughter is not yet three, and there is no concept of “too young” for her.
