OK~ A great discussion today between Garrett, my Brother, and my Mom. Due to the fact that the 1978 Chevy pick-up that I grew up riding in to head out to those bean fields was hauled to the junk yard today, a bittersweet moment it was. I know, those of you that have no clue what a pick-up means to a farm family probably think we are all nuts. I spent many miles in the back cab of that pick-up! It was off to a bean field, or a corn field to pick up rocks. Thinking....34 years! That was a well defined Chevy truck!
And then there was the 1975 Buick Station Wagon...Blue! How lovely it was...My girlfriend, Kim and I spent many hours driving that car around the grain bins in our yard. I know, sounds crazy, but that is where she and I practiced our driving. Garrett, who is 16, kind of said, "What's a station wagon?" Just another sign of the times!
Oh yeah...and my first official car! A 1978 Buick Skylark- Bright, Sunny Yellow~ What a rockin' car that was. It was nice- bright and bold! Sadly, that car met the end of the road when my sister was driving it.
Cars and Trucks...they take us lots of places, but they also provide many years of great memories of life on the Iowa farm! So.....we continue to enjoy "Old Blue" Gotta love that truck- 20+ years and more!
After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
