Tawnee was still sick in bed with the flu so less than half of what normally happens on a given day at the rescue happened, but she was able to answer the phone today and talked to a lot of people. On a normal day the rescue gets about 50 phone calls.

After Jason was done with his chores and her chores, it was off to visit a previous donor. A great big yellow tow-truck followed Jason to their place.

They were selling a 2,000 gallon water truck for almost nothing, and so after visiting it yesterday we all felt it could serve the purpose of moving water to the rescue when the well has a hard time keeping up very well. We’re also hoping to water the road on busy days to keep dust under control.

The motor wouldn’t start, so it had to be towed to the rescue. Fortunately it was only a few miles away so towing expenses were negligible. Soon the water truck was hooked up and ready to go.

A quick turn around and they were on the road.

Soon it was being pulled into the rescue.

It was backed into position, the tow truck unhooked and soon it was sitting there all by itself.

In no time at all Jason was under the hood making it go. He reports that it did run today, but that it needs a new fuel system which should be installed tomorrow. It will be so nice to have a source of water on wheels!

We would like to thank Wal-Mart for donating a bunch of feed today, and many thanks to April and Larry for picking it up and delivering it. It is so wonderful to have volunteers that are able to lend a helping hand. It really helps when Jason or Tawnee don’t have to drop everything and rush into town when Wal-Mart calls.
