What do you consider the BEST vehicle for your needs? For most folk just a simple 4 door car fills the bill. But in my case, a pickup truck would work much better.
That was my first p/u,loved that truck.
We towed a pickup for a short time behind the motor home, but as I have mentioned since the Three girls in Sherry’s family liked to travel together, our choice went to Mini-vans.
Since no matter where we are, I seem to develop a ‘need’ for a p/u truck, for many years the Van became our ‘pick-up truck.’
This is one of the many in between trucks.
When the two sisters passed on we no longer needed the van, so we bought this little FIT. But downsizing to the FIT did not change the need for a p/u. So when the chips are down, the seats go down, the hatchback goes up and stuff is tied in, or we load up a utility trailer.
I do use a vehicle and try to be true to my daddy’s admonition, do not abuse it. Dad cared for his cars like he cared for his mules. Mama said he petted them.
(The last truck (I think) it was a diesel)
Dad could get 100,000 miles on a car in the 50’s when most folk were overhauling their engines at 65,000.
Engineering, oils, and designs have made 150,000 miles on an engine common place. My dad would find that very hard to believe.

So, I know Paula has a pickup truck, I did see it. Jean and Rick up in AL has a p/u’s too. What about you?
Great weather, a little windy but nice.
PS: Thanks for all the ‘sweet’ comments about my girl. Yes, I have already tucked her in. Lots of side benefits to that!!!
She is still my sweetheart! Several folk here comment to Sherry about us holding hands as we walk, she says she is just keeping me from falling. But I know better!
The station wagon hauled lumber also!
