My truck and my wife quit in the same week. Can you believe that? That old Chevy had been with me since October of 1989. The old…the old…uh…uh…my beautiful wife has been with me since...uh…for a little bit longer!
I lacked four months getting 20 years from the truck. It carried me a little over 279,000 miles. Most of them pretty smooth. Josh was 14 when I wheeled up into the yard in the shiny new vehicle. Jesse had just turned 12.
"Take us for a spin, dad.”
“Can we ride in the back?”
