yesterday morning, i had just settled down with my coffee
to put together December's pink post when...
|learn to make snow flakes here!|
...the phone rang!
it was Mr D!
his little Red Ranger truck broke.
it was 23 degrees outside!
still in my slippers, and yoga pants, i headed outside to defrost
my commuter Corolla. by the time i reached Mr D, a
WONDERFUL samaritan helped him push the troubled truck
to a safe place.
we have roadside service on our cell phones.
all we had to do was touch four little numbers...
...help was on the way.
we had it towed back to 34th Street.
Mr D stayed home, i headed to the shower and on to the office.
|Mr D's 1995 Red Ranger... and a memory.|
when i popped onto facebook at lunch, sentimental Mr D had
made a few posts. the little truck holds so many memories for him.
we have thought about selling it, but it's perfect for his short commute
to the park and ride, where he takes the LONG commute to the
University of Washington every day. it's nice for the occasional "haul",
and saves wear and tear on the "Expo"!
when i returned from work last night the truck was missing.
our dear friend Ernie came by to take it to his place for a fix!
it needs a new clutch. a minor fix, to keep filling that silly little
pick up with more memories like...
(Sing) Sing a song
(Sing) Sing a song of songs
(Sing) Sing it out
Sing it strong
(Sing, sing, sing, sing)
and lot's of Neil Diamond, while
driving our son to college in Texas ten years ago.
Sing it LOUD!
Saving the Red Ranger!
(this one's for you, my sentimental Mr D!)
now, back to pink !
it's a busy month! don't forget to check!
(thank you, thank you, thank you, to the good samaritan,
Josh the tow truck driver and our dear Ernie!)
