The End of an Era

Mr. C has owned and loved his big ole Dodge truck for 18 years. He bought it new when we moved to Greensboro.

Yesterday he gave it it’s final wash here on The Hill.

“The Dodge is standing tall.”  is what Mr. C says after every washing.

The old beast has served us well over the years.

It’s gotten us through many snow storms, hauling campers to the beach, many loads of rocks for landscaping, countless loads of mulch and firewood, hauling fishing boats and canoes…

Yep, it’s been a good truck.

He’s going to miss it.

But only for a minute because he’s picking up his new baby today!

We’re a  Ford family now! Thanx to Honey Schmenkman for the friends and family discount!

Happy Birthday Mr.C!!

    Well count me among the birthday well-wishers… and I can of course relate to the old vehicle sadness mixed with new vehicle (Ford) joy. Enjoy the new ride!

    Happy Birthday, Cam. What a lovely gift!!! Let us know how you like it — it’s on our “maybe” list for new vehicle. By the way, that old Dodge looks pretty good for an old gal.
