Little Red Truck
The Blue Bomber coughed up her transmission on the highway in NJ last week leaving the boy stranded far from home and work. His uncle rescued him, and he helped us out all weekend, but he has to be back at work tomorrow no matter what. BB is still in a garage in NJ, so he bought this little, older, truck with what he had managed to save. His dad has been teasing him about gerbil power, but she is so pretty and rides nice and gentle.
I liked the size of old BB for all that highway travel; there is some truck there (!)but hopefully this little one will get him there too and also hopefully one of the impending crises has been averted.
***I forgot to tell about how at one dealership he was actually writing out a check for a car. The dealer asked where he worked and he told him...NYC, 731 laborer..and the man threw him out of the store. He drove up the road a few miles, bought the above truck, and drove it right past the first place. Can you believe it?
