The local grocery store in town has the boneless ribeye roast on sale again, and I just got paid.
I got up early and headed to town for the ribeye first, in the Ranger. As I turned on the highway and tried to accelerate to highway speed. the Ranger coughed, choked, gasped, and refused to gain any RPMs at all.
I back off on the gas, and goosed ‘er again, with same result. I pulled off the road, and hung a U, and headed back to the rancho. At slow speeds, no problem, but any attempt to get any speed resulted in same.
I pulled into my slot in the carport, and put it in Park. I revved it a little; no problem, but when I revved it to around 3200 RPM, it surged again.
IDNHAC as to the problem, so I made an appt. with the local garage,,,who are really very good automotive techs, and I mean that. Earliest I could get in was Friday at 9…so be it.
I took the wife’s car and got my boneless ribeye roast; a 13+ pounder; the biggest they had out.
I dropped it off at the house, then proceeded to the big city where I bought my month supply of groceries.
The bitter taste of WTF is wrong with my truck, and how much it will cost to fix remains.
I topped off the groceries with a dry goods order from Wal-Mart…should be here by Friday.

Then, the wife and I were looking over the barnyard, when this came up for a drink
That is one big axis buck.
Probably should call him Gunga Din, as the water in those troughs is green and crawlin’ (for Rudyard Kipling fans).
