Its starting to look and feel like fall around here. We are having a little rain and its cooling down. A busy day here. I can't seem to catch up on things around here. I am working on Ms. Fran's scrapbook. I am putting her cards in so she can have them handy to look at anytime she wants. I am trying to get soap made and candles poured. Just the same ole same ole around here. William has a fellow trucker friend named Jerry. Jerry had parked in a truckstop the other night and next morning he heard a noise like a hose leak under his hood. He looked but didn't see anything. He drove for awhile and stopped to eat and heard the noise again but again didn't find anything. He drove on again for several hours and stopped. He again heard the noise and started looking even harder so he could find the problem and take his truck in to be fixed. He found a baby kitten sitting on his fuel tank. The kitten was covered in oil and grease so Jerry took it inside the truckstop and gave it a bath in the sink. The kitten had a few cuts and scrapes but seemed okay. Jerry bought some kitten food and liter and now has a trucking pet riding with him. He says it sits in his lap and sleeps while he drives and curls up beside him when he sleeps. I hope he will send photos so we can see his new truck buddy!

The kitty that went under my hood many years ago wasn't so lucky. Glad this one is okay.

That's such a heartwarming story.
Happy the kitty was smart enough to stay still. I believe that is how I ended up with my cat , Buddy.
He was at the door of my business one morning. I think he was under someone's hood and climbed out when they parked. He was so small and solid black. I've had him for 10 years now. Thanks for sharing this sweet story Peggy.

Seems Jerry made a very affectionate buddy.

I love the little farmall pony tractor. I have one the same vintage but the next size larger a Farmall 200, circa 1950.
