I could never explain the saga of removing rusted sparkplugs as well as our son Andrew. You can read all about it on his blog . Farm life just seems to have a lot of these types of situations.
A friend who grew up on a farm told us one time that typically it takes at least half your time looking for what you need, the other half actually getting the work done. Around here it takes more than half your time just figuring out how to get the job done!
