My first truck.....

Yesterday, Lee was working late and asked me if I could take Garrett to soccer practice. At practice, I noticed a man pull up in this 1985 Nissan truck, I think it was Midnight blue mist. Back in the day, I bought this truck brand new from K.H. Nissan Motors in 1984, my first year in college. I am not exactly sure of the exact amount I paid for it, however, my monthly payment was $157.18. The only extra I had on it was an air conditioner. I put a Pioneer AM/FM cassette tape player, 2 pairs of Pioneer speakers along with a 100 watt amp....yeah, I thought I was bad.
Well, 25 years later, 430,000 miles later....I see it again. It brought back a bunch of good memories. I was so excited to see it.
I would be interested in what was the first car/truck you bought and anything else you tell me about.....

Finding beauty wherever you are........

We all need to stop and enjoy what is around us and look for the good in everything.
This a some pictures that I have taken at different times. I had forgotten about the pictures of the flowers. I do remember standing in an ant bed, while I was holding the flower so my friend could take a picture of, did they sting me a bunch of times. PaPa John took care of them ants, though. I thought of my good friend in Texas, Deanna, just now.

This is a bird nest that is in the backyard. We have several bird houses that we will put out next spring. We have the feeders out with birdseed in them and a couple of humming bird feeders out too. We have squirrels that visit us.......they love eating the hickory nuts and acorns. It is enjoyable just watching them.
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather we are having.

Ms Lee, Garrett and I went to watch and hear her sing. She is growing up so fast. She is taking guitar lessons, also.

These two have so much fun together.
A special hello to Woody and Tammy. Thank you for checking on me. There has been so much going on lately that I haven't taken the time to blog any.
