My Husband and Father never cease to amaze me how they choose to jimmy-rig things together… but hey! Ya gotta do what you gotta do, right?
Gotta haul a couple soft bales? No prob. Just stack ’em and strap ’em in a very precarious way. It’ll ride.Need to haul more than four people in a ranger? No prob. Just slap an old pickup seat in the bed with a couple bolts. It’ll ride. Need to get going, but hungry at the same time? No prob. Grab last nights dinner in the pot and hit the road. Need to clean your pickup out, but can’t bother with Armor All and a shop towel? No prob. Grab the air hose and go to town.Need to work on the underside of a 5,000 lb tractor? No prob. Hastily chain it up to the forklift and crawl underneath. Absolutely nothing could go wrong.Need to hook up your trailer brakes in a hurry? No prob. Grab some twine an get goin’. Need to water your garden with filthy dirty ditch water that keeps plugging up your system? No prob. Hook up your old pool filter and turn that sucker on! Want to listen to the radio inside your shop but can’t get any reception? No prob. Grab a wire nut and some old wire and crank up the tunes!Need to take a vacation, but just can’t seem to get away? No prob. Grab a beer and your miniature sail boat and enjoy the breeze.
