Default 'Angry Bird' generator bearing.

With the skies grey and overcast the team of owner Al, Chip & Shawn took on a job I have never seen done at a rally. Since he already had the bearing on board and there were some volunteers Al said 'Let's do it'.

Great team-work...just like a NASCAR pit-crew.

Still anticipating changing out the bearings in Mark & Tim's 12.5K generators before the end of the Lovebirds rally.

After breakfast this A M, the girls will shop at Darby's, NAPA & Tractor Supply while the guys rack their brains at the "Blue Bird University" technical session which begins at 10:30 at Mardi Gras Central.

This rally proceeds at a gruesome pace however with the younger Bird owners doing most of the heavy wrenching while the oldsters provide occasional guidance.

I don't think it happened just that way!!
Al was "talking" about the bearing and Paul said "lets do it"
Al got this deer in the headlights look and stammered "now"?
But by then Paul had his game face and was gathering tools!
But get this,they started the job and then Tom Sawyered the rest of us.
Ohh,we need to go get a tool and they disappeared.
We got bored waiting and Chip jumped in and had the job done when they got back,hours later....

We learned something from them, didn’t we? Did you pay to work?
