I was killing time while having the heater motor replaced on our Bronco and the mechanic pointed out this hawk that he says has been hanging around his shop for at least five years. Luckily, I had my camera with me. I am not a bird photographer, but I am pretty proud of this one. Lucky shot!!

It's rather singular that a motor problem can give satisfaction !!!!!

I thought you did your own automotive work...?! Getting too old for that twisting yourself under the dashboard crap?

JP, I do MOST of my own automotive work! This was an electrical prob and I was both in a bit of a rush and a bit lazy! Electrical gremlins are the worst, I usually end up replacing 3 things that are good to find the one that is bad. This turned out to be a bad blower motor and is under the hood, not under the dash. :-)) My Bronco has 232,000 miles and is 22 years old so I can't complain.. :-)) How's the Merc doing??

I looked at the Merc today. I don't start it up unless it's above about 40 degrees outside. A couple times per winter I let it run long enough to get really warmed up. Otherwise, we eye each other with summertime intents. ;-)

Denise, :'(( Thanks for the compliments though!

I know what you mean, my Bronco is daily driver but my 65 Bug is mostly a warm weather toy..
