Mechanics on duty

Alan and George were kind enough to perform a vehicle inspection for me on the Ranger. 

Alan: Every inspection must include a thorough tire-kicking.


Alan: Suspension system seems to be in working order. Surprising given the way she drives this thing.



Alan: Tailgate appears to be stuck.


George: How in the heck do you pop this hood? 


George: Maybe there's a secret switch hidden up here.


George: Hey, Alan, come over here and see if you can figure this out.


Alan: Beats the hell out of me. Maybe we should ask the shop steward?


Lucy: I could open it but I don't want to ruin my manicure.


Alan: Your vehicle is safe to drive, ma'am. That will be $100. We accept cash, credit cards, or carrots.

  1. They are always there for you, doing whatever it takes to make the ranch run like a fine tuned machine. Help like that is really hard to find nowadays! LOL

  2. Don't you wish car inspections were that easy - you don't even have to leave your property! :)

    Cute! Reminds me of the first time we took our ATV into the pasture and how 'the boys' sized up this new critter. I got some cute pictures of it and makes me smile everytime. I needed this, thank you!

    They just wanted to make sure Moma would be safe when she took the green monster out...

  13. Why do I have the feeling the Ranger would be in a million pieces if they had their way? They are so curious! And adorable as always. :)

  14. Making my living in retail sales, as I do, I'd recognize a tire kicker anywhere. *grin*

  16. How nice of the boys to provide such a valuable service. I'm thinking you don't leave them out there unattended with the Ranger for too long. The tricksters might runaway with the hubcaps and tire valves! lol

  18. A hundred bucks? Sounds like my mechanic. If he just walks in the garage it's $100.

    Still, your team looks pretty capable.

    :)
