at long last

2000 ford ranger

I have been without a vehicle for over two years—until this week, when I finally took delivery of a 2000 Ford Ranger pickup. And I bought the truck entirely with my own funds; no donations were used.

After such a long time, I hardly know how to behave. You would think I would be partaking in an orgy of driving, but except for a half-day visiting a friend, showering, and doing my laundry, the truck has remained parked in the circular drive in front of the house. Habits die hard.

The feeling of emancipation is exhilarating. Maybe this afternoon I will drive down to the highway to see if I have received any mail in the last week. I’m also about to run out of paper coffee filters.

Pinch me and let’s see if this is real.

    I’m glad you have some independent means of mobility again. Even if you were a diehard “live off the grid” you would have a horse!
