Yesterday came and went a downer. Best I managed was to edit and post an addition to a former post Let’s Write a Story added by author Christi Mone Marie (www.christimonemarie.com). I guess the fuel tank neared empty and the engine could never run long enough to heat up.
With some rest and maintenance, I started the engine today and it rumbled alive and glows from the heat of high rpms.
Sometimes engines need a rest. Sometimes their tanks need refilled. Sometimes they need lubrication.
All that accomplished, the satisfying blatting of a well maintained engine makes me happy, because I can sail again to my many ports of call.
If the engine wishes to rest, allow it.
I can count on it firing up and off I go again.
