Imagine her driving down the road, 1000 miles from her own home town where she grew up, when she sees it! Out of the corner of her eye at first…”Did I imagine that?” Missing him like crazy, a double take. It’s almost identical!
She makes a U-Turn and parks next to it. Grabbing the phone number off the newly shined windshield. She places the call. “Hello, Iʼm interested in your truck for sale, my dad drove one just like it.” By days end, the 1972 sky blue, Chevy pick-up truck sits in her driveway. She is now the proud owner and feels her dad closer than ever.
You see, he passed just a few months prior. And although the original truck still sits on her fatherʼs land, miles away…this one seems heaven sent. The same color, and one year newer. “Old Blue” brings fond memories, a comfort of simpler times and the promise her Dad is near.
Iʼm lucky to see her driving Old Blue around town. Whoʼs that in the passenger seat?
K, you and your family are absolutely beautiful. Thanks for letting me share the story behind the photos.
