Why oh why did I buy a Ford !!!!!!!!


As you may know I purchased a Ford F-350 this summer to pull my new (to me) toy hauler.






I sold a Dodge 3/4 ton crew cab truck that I had for many years......never once did I regret having the Dodge and selling it was a very difficult thing for me.

The Ford must have known my  feelings from day one.....I would feel guilty every time I talked about the Dodge within ear shot of the Ford......just like I would feel guilty talking bad about a child's parent in front of said child.

Well after a few hundred miles pulling the big toyhauler I was beginning to like the big Ford.

It has lots of room for guests.....a few weeks ago one of my blog subscribers, Hippy Chick asked if she could met me while she was in Quartzsite. I did agree to met her in town and soon she was asking if I ever planned to go to Parker  could she and her friend catch a ride so they would not have to drive their buses......so Dean and I invited them along.......I was terribly worried about the noise of two women in the back seat so I asked Dean to please keep control of the conversation.

He did a fairly good job.....another challenge tackled. We went over to checkout a camp spot my other blog friend Doug had told us about, it is part of the race track for the Parker Off Road Race  here is a link:

Yours truely

not sure what Dean was looking at.....my money is the dog walking his way.

We also ran into another full timer, Tim from Idaho. Very nice guy who lives in his homemade trailer.


The rest of the day went well, but my hopes of being a matchmaker for my friend Dean feel short.....two old hippies......I thought it might have lead to some sparks......wrong....oh well.


The Ford made it to Parker and back on it's own that day no problem........then this....




 Sure lost any of my love the next day when it would not start......and just as I was  getting used to it a little....tow job.....dealer in Parker and $5,000.00 not my idea of a good time.

Well a little over a week later I did get it back and so far it is running, but I say a prayer everytime I get in it and I hear so many odd noises.....not fun.
The Ford knows I'm mad......look how it parks over by Dean instead of next to my door.

Speaking of prayers....right now one of mine is about you...God Bless you

Papa

    1. Wonder why nobody noticed the plastic bag on the tail pipe of the sandrail?
