Someone recently commented on this post that was written in October of 2013.
I pulled it up and the image reminds me that soon my surroundings will look
I am taking
hopefully what will be a short break.
Seems some health issues
are not continuing to improve.
Just wanted to check in and say thank you
for emails received
wondering - where am "I".
Early morning service for old truck
which is now 15 years old and hey that is not old old.
I love this truck and it was purchased after I sold old farm house,
moved into a condo for a few months and then decided to build again on my property.
So excited as I planned and sketched this home.
Remembering all that happened concerning this truck.
I could not make a trip to the big city and look at truck but knew
exactly what I wanted. Also had a discount because of family
member working at Ford. Made a call and talked to a salesman, told
him exactly what I wanted, I could not drive to Nashville and did he have any suggestions.
A taupe colored medium Ford Ranger, roll up windows, air conditioning and nothing extra
but a radio. He told me they had something available at a special price and he
would bring it to me with the papers if I decided to purchase. Was hard to believe
what I was hearing.
So excited as they pulled into the condo drive as it was just what I wanted.
He also brought someone with him in another car to witness sale and drive
him back to Nashville. In a matter of minutes this truck was purchased.
After I moved from this country home into the big city - my son suggested I did
not need a truck along with my car and he purchased to use in his business.
Business was closed down 5 years ago and I bought my special truck back from him
as I prepared to return to the country.
Serviced this morning and brakes will have to be replaced and that is fine. It would not
have the many miles on it that it possesses if it had not been used as a company vehicle.
and since returning to the country
just wish I had a shelter for this vehicle and thoughts of a carport but as life is
at the moment do not need more additions here and the cost. All of my scattered
neighbors keep their vehicles outside even though they have garages. Always wonder
about this :) they must be filled with stuff....
I have thoughts as Fall continues and Winter sets in if I will regain the energy that
I possessed a year ago . The last 10 days doing well, good appetite, sleeping like I am exhausted
(and that is different and guess body is still healing) except for balance problem and I love this cane. Hopefully my energy will return by Spring but will except wherever I am
weary of talking about it, family tired of hearing it and always say "you look good", do not agree with
their statement, and tired of being angry with energy level.
My optimism and will is strong and may it remain like this.
Another issue is my new television, which I did not want but son thought I would enjoy
with Winter around the corner ( will have to say that yesterday enjoyed PBS and for the
first time in many years I watched 60 Minutes).
seems no one can properly connect DVD player. Hopefully soon....
or may have to wait until Thanksgiving
when special son-in law comes for dinner....
