79 Ford

We have a love affair with ford trucks…Right this minute, the farm is home to a 1979, 1994, 1997 and 2006.

The 1979 was a project that my sister started about a decade or so….It was her dream to drive her 1979 blue and white, 3/4 ton Ford around her prestigious private university.  She did drive the 1994 to college for a few years. and it would turns heads seeing her get out of the that big ole truck in slacks and heels for work.  I think it was her way of taking just a bit of home with her.

Money, time and life got in the way and the truck has been sitting outside at the mechanics home for at least ten years without a single improvement.

Since that farm is for sale, it was time to bring the truck home.  While Eddie and I worked on a neighboring high tunnel Saturday….YaYa, Papa and Mae Mae loaded it on the trailer and brought it home.

There isn’t a plan just yet but I am sure we will figure something out.  Just getting it home again, has everyone fired up to get it finished.

We surprised my sister with a photo sent via text Sunday….She had no idea “Blue” had come home.
