Hi Y'all -
I'm Trucky - Anne's Truck!
She got me some new shoes - tires - last week!
More like big black boots.
Yay! And are they ever great! All 4!
We drive everywhere together!
We go on trips - and see other bloggers.
We go to work, and "save the day" with Hospice patients!
We carry supplies to and from here and there.
It's great fun driving around, listening to music...
I sure love being around... "Life is good"
as my Jeep friends say!
One day, just this summer, some scoundrels abducted me.
In the dark of night! Oh no!
A day or two later, Anne got me back.
Something about her not paying the last payment on me!
The payment that was due way back -
Over 5 years ago. I guess she forgot.
Maybe she thought it wasn't that important.
Turns out, it WAS that important. Grrr!
We've been together 8 years. With that last payment,
she finally made and "honest engine" out of me.
I knew I was worth more than $480!
I just don't know why those guys had to be so rough on me!
Toe-Truck is right! *yikes!* Well, all's well that ends well.
And it's a good lesson to learn to follow-though... closure, etc.
Not getting closure is like running over some road-kill.
Ya never know when (or where) it might jump up
and bite ya in the back seat!
(Oh - so THAT's what happened!)
Anne takes very good care of me.
She never misses a service call. She's a real geeky nerd
when it comes to preventative maintenance.
I get my oil changed on schedule.
I even use super synthetic oil.
Just in case.
All these tubes and wires - careful notes!
Good Heavens, Miss Sakomoto - You're beautiful!
So it's good that Anne is finally learning the rules
of Preventative Maintenance as they apply to other areas of life as well.
I think she treats me better than she treats herself.
I guess that diet was a good thing, after all.
Once we were stuck in the Grand Canyon together
for like - weeks! A year and a half ago!
No gas, nothing for trucks to eat. No car wash, no covered parking.
Nothing! Just wind and rain and snow. In March!
I called it "Snow Falling On TaTa's!"
Anne did alot of walking.
We sure get better gas milage now
that we aren't hauling around those extra pounds!
Anne LOVES it when I say that! HeeHee!
No more drive-throughs late at night.
No more driving and crying - sniffin' the tears.
She even got a GPS so she doesn't get mad and pound the steering wheel.
She hasn't gotten mad in traffic in so long.
We listen to lots of music - just singing all day!
Yep, times are good, for a truck.
I might even get all those Depends out of my tool box!
One day... one day! Well, see ya soon!
Maybe we'll drive through to your town!
Just don't invite us if you don't mean it - we might just show up!
