I know I wouldnt want to do that these days for sure .  Driving stick shifts were difficult all by themselves

Just love the old truck, and especially your remembrances of that life.  What fun to read this post.

Just had to come back and read this fantastic post. I loved every word of it, S. Sister. Reminded me of my dad accompanying me when I first started driving, though no, no trucks.. I loved the part about your mind wandering as you drove, probably about the latest boyfriend who...yes, me too! I can so relate... Fives!

A big thrill for you, I don't know if I would have slept though. One thing there were gentlemen on the roads in those days, I bet he never let youse sister muster.

A very fitting post for today as my first car just clipsed 200,000 miles...That is a neat looking vehicle. I like it when older cars and trucks are on the road.

Some brilliant scientist - perhaps an astronomer physicist - or maybe

it was a philosopher - said time is a myth and we live in the eternal now. So what happened 50 years ago or longer is actually still happening somewhere in this universe - which could explain some of our dreams and remembered conversations, etc. I think of time as a kind of accordion that squeezes in and out to bring long ago and far away into the immediate nearby. I can just see you singing and barreling down the road, leaving a big dustcloud in your wake.
