Good Morning Gentle Readers,
In the 14th November edition of your daily newsletter it is hereby demanded that you print some good news; even if you have to make it up. Thank you. [name omitted]; a gentle reader but angry commentator.
Stashed in the corner of TWC's garage stands a 12 foot tall vintage Mohawk gas pump with a similar logo. I've been threatening to restore that baby for fifteen years. Okay. At least a decade.
The pump dates to the 1920's and ended it's career servicing a cattle ranch just outside of Sonora Ca until the 1940's or early 1950's.
TWC first gazed longingly at it thirty years ago and at the time it was remarkably well preserved. Unfortunately over the intervening years, the weather wasn't kind. I ended up with custody thanks to the generosity of my uncle, but by then that old thick lead based paint had begun to come off in curled chunks that remind you of the dregs of a dried up mud puddle in the desert.
