Behold, A Wish Come True

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.

Happy Trails...

  1. Well my goodness, I am so glad that you stopped by my blog. I am soory that I haven't been blogging much at all lately. Just too busy.

    We sure do have a lot in common!! Love your blog and can't wait for more time to read all your post.

    Glad you got to ride the 18 wheeler. My dear hubby has drove one for 35 years, along with bulldozing and now has his own excavating business and an old decrepit dump truck that I get to ride in often!!!!

    Thanks for the well wishes on my new job. It is one of those that is a day to day thing though. Not to excited either way. Really beating myself up for having to go to work anyway, but that was my crazy choice ;-)

    Please come back often for a peek at my new projects that I am working on. I promise pics sometime this weekend!!!

    Take care,
    Happy Trails!!
