A little help from our friends

Last week our friend Gary of our hapa home came down to work on our old farm truck. The truck was a gift from our friend Terry--an old 1966 Ford F250, affectionately called Clem. Clem needed a new water pump and gearhead Gary was the man for the job.

I'm not so sure about his technique, but he got the job done!

Scotty enjoyed watching Gary at work, and he also had a good time with his pet jungle fowl hanging out in the cab. He's got these guys quite tamed now, and that will be good for us this summer because we will be able to release them into different garden patches to help control pests. In case you were wondering, the jungle fowl is the ancestor of domestic chickens. We are working on establishing a population here on the farm from the ones that Chris' mom breeds at her place.
