Me: I feel like Jesus and me would’ve been great friends.
GF: Why’s that?
Me: The whole water into wine thing. The man had his choice of first miracles and went with turning water into wine. Shows good taste. Discernment. Judgment. Refinement, even. Had his priorities straight. He could have cured cancer. He could have ended world hunger. He could have brought eternal peace to the world. He could have sent the first chimp into space. But he went with wine.
GF: You are absolutely the stupidest person I have ever met, you do realize that?

Well, that’s pretty awesome. Old machines need love too—especially engines that sound like they run on a mixture of gasoline, hope, and impossibility. Seriously—I love the sound of a hit and miss engine in action.
I’ve got one too! Several old gas engine Maytags actually!
All I can say is keep ‘em good and greased up. Actually, that’s my advice about a surprising number of things…
