For all of you out there that have some sort of crazy life-long dream that you might not want to admit to, listen up. Mine finally came true. Throughout my childhood into my adult life, I have always been mesmerized my big 18-wheeler trucks and could only imagine how cool it would be to ride in one and sit up high, looking out over the road and countryside. It might sound weird to some who know me but then again, to some who know me well would not at all be surprised. Last week I finally got to ride in my cousin's truck when hauling the dozer. What a blast! First of all, I about wet my pants climbing up in the seat. The 'ol gray mare ain't what she used to be. Wow! But big mama made it, mission accomplished and off we went. How cool is this?! I have to admit riding in the air seat, bouncing with every bump in the road felt like trying to stay in the saddle of some wayward horse. With every huge wide turn that Buddy took, I felt like I was on some sort of amusement ride...I felt like we were going to hit the ditch every time but he knew what he was doing.
I took some amazing pictures along the way but most of them didn't turn out. I've put a request into Santa for a new camera for Christmas. That'll give me a good reason to go for a ride again.
I had to put in this picture of an old barn
of my cousin's. I love old barns and this
one was begging me to take it's picture.
So for all you that have some sort of dream or wish list to do in your lifetime, don't give up. It can still happen.
