Sold the truck…

frontSo in December of 1997 I was in search of a new truck and had found it in the form of a charming brand new white ford ranger pickup truck. Since then I have only put 67,000 miles on it since I mostly used if to go back and forth from work.

Today when I woke up the truck was gone! I sold it yesterday and ascrv front a result, today when I left the house to go to work, there was a bit of sadness that my old white ranger was gone… Man I loved that truck!!! So today I drove our brand new Honda CRV toad that had been hiding in our garage since we brought it home. I really enjoyed driving it but it just wasn’t the same… However, I hope that this is the beginning of brand new love affair with an inanimate object…

47 days to go… YIKES!!!!


  1. I had a special affinity to my little white Ranger truck, too.

    It took me, my pets, and my little Hi-Lo travel trailer to all kinds of interesting places.

  2. You have lots of new things to look forward to.

  3. It is strange how we get attached to "TOYS", I had the same feeling when I traded my good old F-250 1994 for F-350 2006...and I am sure it will happen again when I do my next trade.
    As long as we are going forward and happy with it -it is fine.

  4. Great looking ride. You will soon forget all about that little white truck. My Hubby also had a little ranger that he drove to work, then my SIL drove it for a couple of years. Good little trucks with great milage.

  5. I know what it is like to love you vehicle for sure. I guess you thought about using it as a toad. Is it too heavy for that? Seems like a truck as a toad would actually be great since you could use the bed for lots of things.

    Got your note about malwarebytes but I can't it or anything else to my own blog unless I go back to the library :-) Malwarebyetes was the first thing I used on this monster. It cleared up most of the problem but I was left with the blogger & gmail - IE won't connect problems.

    Do send any more ideas you have and feel free to use email Even though I can't log in to the web client, my outlook express will allow me to use my gmail account. WHAT a MESS I've got here.

    Congrats on the countdown! Thanks for the advice.


  6. OH yes.. I had a love affair.. with my Heepie Jeepie! It was a 90 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with woody sides and lots of chrome... it had 4WD on the fly, leather seats and just crawled through anything I asked it to. Gosh I miss it. It started rusting on the frame and was time to go...

  7. I miss my Little Red Honda Fit :( She was easy to get around in and park. You're gonna LOVE your CRV. Won't be long till you guys bond!

  8. I hope you will learn to love your CRV. Mine is a 2003 and I still love it. Terrific tow vehicle and it's comfortable for exploring during our travels. I do miss my husband's Miata that we sold when we became full-timers though.
