    Everyday is a gift to be thankful for. There are no bad days just our perception of them. There is something good in the worst of days.

    Morning Lady and Gents. 40* at night and 85* during the day. Crazy. DL, the more I think about your truck the more convinced I am that it is axle bearings or hub bearings. The up and down whine is typical for those rotating parts.
    Need to change the oil and filter in the 2018 1500. 500 miles, get the factory 5-20 out and Penz 5-30 in.
    Need to help our neighbor today with the set up for Saturday Veterans day BBQ. Mostly post Vietnam Vets now. Always a great event. At his home. He host the spread. BUT,,,have to get past the who is not here, this year part.
    Well warm enough to pick up the wrenches. Hmmmmm tool warmer winter project for old guys with arthritis. May go with Tbird and get a PT job. Fitz

    Good morning everyone--44 this morning and rainy again. On the way up to the low 50's this afternoon. Maybe we'll do the stroll later today when it is a little warmer and the rain stops. It's even to chilly this morning to drink coffee on the porch. Tomorrow is suppose to be in the middle 60's so a little relief is on the way. There is going to be a car show and drag race on Saturday just north of San Antonio which looks kinda interesting, I might run down there to take a look, depending on the weather. There is also a large car show here in town on Saturday along with a small parade honoring our veterans. They usually have 100-200 car participate. The participation rate has been dropping during the last few years as there has been some glaring irregularities in the judging process. It's kind of a shame, because there have been some really nice cars that don't participate any more. I see by the pictures posted that some of you are starting to experience the start of winter. Love seeing the pictures, however I think I'll pass on experiencing it first hand. Hopefully I have shoveled my last shovel full of snow years ago. I keep thinking the reason some Texans love snow so much is because they know they have a warm place to come home too. Oh well-back for another cup---Have a great Friday everyone!!!!!

    Dodge update. I didn’t have any help today so I started looking at the parking brake cable. I read something on a forum that seemed to imply that the parking brake “lever” could stick and cause noise- and my brake cable seemed to be hanging lower than I remembered it so I was curious.
    There is a bracket toward the back of the vehicle that had two bolts holding it onto the frame. This bracket was loose and one nut missing, the other nut was very loose. The bolts were very inconveniently welded to the bracket with the nuts all but inaccessible with the gas tank in place.
    I felt victorious because I did get two nuts on there and tightened- but I worked on it several hours off and on.
    I even had hope at one point that it would fix my whine... but no. I did notice though that when i pushed the loose bracket into position I could hear a little bitty squeak in the wheel...
    I thought this might lead somewhere because I realized that the first time I had activated the parking brake in 20 years was when we did the fuel pump.
    I did not remove the wheel hub yet to look at this parking brake “lever” they were saying can sometimes get stuck.

    I did attach an old phone to the cab right above the cab/bed crack. Could hear the whine. Then I connected the pHone on the frame near the parking brake cable/ left rear. I could hear the whine but not really conclusive if it was worse there or not. Lots of noise under there!

    I’m exhausted.... Good night everyone!
