I just can't resist saying it
The saying "the difference between men and boys.....is the size of their toys" seemed to come to life last week when Jim Molenhouse, from the Wheaton Bible Church team, spent much of his last 24 hours in Liberia getting this old dinosaur running. It's a road grader and it's about 50 years old. (only MACHINES this old are dinosaurs...) Here he is doing a little work at the end of the driveway next door which had a nasty divet that even our new jeep couldn't get over without a good jolt. He didn't get to do much grading because he needed some good "laterite" clay soil to spread around on the roads and there wasn't time to get it. But he still had fun with the few spots he could do, and the suspensions on our cars are grateful (I often apologize to my car when I can't avoid the most serious holes and ruts- ouch.)
Notice who just had to join Jim in the driver's seat.....it's Jared of course.
