Making Do Monday

Can you guess what this might be?

Can you guess now? That's right, it's a portable tractor gas tank. Believe it or not. I'm not exactly an expert as to explaining why there is a portable tractor gas tank on Uncle Bubba's tractor. All I can tell you is that there is "crud" in the real gas tank and due to the lack of time that it takes to tear the real gas tank down and clean it, this little handy plastic model is the solution temporarily. From what I can remember, this little model was "borrowed" from a riding lawn mower. Hey, look on the bright side, at least if the gas gauge isn't working (which it isn't), you can look straight down and see how much you have left.

The moral of the story is, Uncle Bubba made do with what he had.....


While I'm on the subject of making do with what you have, this is Uncle Bubba's portable electric company. Yes, he really does use lanterns on his farm. (They make handy hand warmers in the winter time too)

Stay tuned this week for some more pictures from Uncle Bubba's farm.


  1. Gotta love those SC rednecks! Or is that a hillbilly?!

  2. Well, Uncle Bubba does have a dark colored neck so I guess that qualifies him for the redneck category. I think hillbillies only wear over-alls that hang off one shoulder. Uncle Bubba is wearing a t-shirt and jeans so he doesn't qualify for being a hillbilly ;)

  3. maybe he's a modern-day hillbilly. the overalls are on the line drying.
