Wait a Few Years, and I'll give You a Ride

There will soon be an addition to The AtHomeFamily. I am going to bring my Grandpa's truck home from the family farm. It has been stuck in the mud out there for years. Now, it can be stuck in our driveway. For years and years.

It is in rough shape, but in this post you can read why I want it. And here is a follow up post, I made a few days later.

Wow! Just this week I was blogging elsewhere that I am not a 'Car Guy". I guess it is time for me to start becoming one. I have sworn to The Boss Lady that this truck will not be going to the shop. I'll be learning as I go, but I'll be making it go, someday. Soon after that, hopefully, I'll be figuring out how to make it stop, too. Then, I'll be making my trips to Lowe's and Home Depot in style!

That truck sure will add some rustic charm, sitting out in front of the house, don't you think?

Besides, there are at least two non-running cars parked on the neighborhood streets. An 80's Isuzu Trooper and a 90's Nissan Sentra. At least mine will be an American Classic. AND in the driveway.

Yeah, that sums up The Boss Lady pretty well...

Oh, you mean me? I think the word your are searching for is either moron or idiot. Give it a while and we will see which I am.
