The big blue truck rolls back to my mountain with unwavering commitment in the evening. The trip requires less use of the headlights every day. For the first time since October I’m blessed to have a beautiful sunset on my journey home. I gently nudge the wheel and move to the side of the road. The only place where there’s enough room to get completely out of the way is across from the Marmet Locks. The series of locks and dams on the Kanawha River make it possible to transport the coal from the mountains to the rest of the world. I arrived at the wide spot just in time to enjoy the sun’s finale for the day as the crimson glow is cast against the rain clouds in a promise of the brighter days ahead.

Thank you Frances ❤
The extractor will have to made as a model. Then I'll probably need to speak with an engineer ( my brother is an engineer) Then I'll probably need have plastic prototype 3D printed before I can actually seek a manufacturer for mass production. Most inventors simply create the device and then sell the concept to a manufacturer for a fraction of the market value. The process can actually take years.
