Chad, Nicole and Addie had to be exhausted last night after having left Louisiana at 5 a.m. I talked to Nicole well after dark and they still had people over looking at the old truck. Chad said driving down the highway, people would pass them smiling and giving them the thumbs up. I can’t remember if I said this but Chad had it on the trailer and wanted to drive around a bit to give it time to settle and shift before tightening the chains. He and my uncle went somewhere and a guy stopped them to see if they would sell it.
Last night Chad and his friend took it for a drive. Chad said “It’s hard to drive!” No power steering or power brakes, the manual choke and starter . . I told him that’s all anyone knew back when that truck was made and sold new.
They did get it in the garage, which Chad promised he would do.
It’ll be interesting to see what Addie thinks about it when she does start driving but she loves it now.
Chad said when they left my uncle’s, Addie cried and she’s never done that before. She loves my uncle! I’m thinking she felt sad taking the old truck that’s been there ever since Addie’s been going around. Or, maybe she was just sad leaving him. She’ll see him again in early November but to her, that probably seems like forever.
One of my neighbors sent me this note on FB – “I’m not sure if you noticed, but I saw it coming down the road then I and company walked around to the front yard to get a better look. It’s a beauty!” I told her they should have walked over – Chad would have been thrilled.
