Truck for sale!


This isn't really an add (that is on Craig's list) more of a passing for me. Larry and I are buying a newer truck from my brothers and since we are it is time to sell our much older truck! Which just happens to be the truck Larry was driving when we met, dated, and of course were first married. This is the truck that we took on our dates, honeymoon, took our first baby home in from the hospital, took our first vacations on.... So there are some great memories made in this truck! I am not saying I am not looking forward to having a newer more reliable truck, not to mention one that our whole family can ride in it is just a passing of an era! It was the sound of that truck that would make my heart pitter patt when I would hear it pulling up to my old apartment. It is funny how that works! I just thought it might be fun to kind of share some of those memories. Oh and one of the funny things is that it was kind of one of those telling things of Larry that helped me fall in love with him. Not that I am totally about what a guy drives, that really wasn't a high priority for me it was the fact that he drove a work truck and it showed me the kind of guy that he was... this happens to be the kind of guy I knew I wanted to marry! So I guess this truck is just any old truck it has some history, memories and I will miss it but I look forward to making lots and lots of new memories in our new one!

I'm nostalgic about some of my old cars too. Except not the stupid green van that overheated every 20 miles ;)

Ohhhh. Last year we sold Lance's black truch that we got married in, drove to our honey moon in, had Eli and Eve with. Even Eli cried when we sold. I have a picture of Eli crying next to it when we sold. I understand the feeling. I still miss it. Good luck!

It sold in 24 hours of being on Craigs list! Crazy! So it left us yesterday afternoon!!! We get our new one this weekend!

I know what you mean about being so sentimental about the "vehicle of love". For me, it's the smell of cleaning solvant! It brings back fond memories of cleaning Harley parts for the bike Dad was building the first summer we dated. We rode that bike the summer I got pregnant with Sunny and sold it when he was a little boy. It's like falling in love all over again when I smell it.
