    Vines, branches and diesel!

    On Friday night, as I drove home from a wedding reception, I became deeply aware of the little light on my dashboard that was telling me my fuel level was “too low”!  I had noticed this earlier but figured I’d get some diesel when I left the reception.  Alas, it was later than I’d planned […]
