'Been away for a while. Well, pictured above is my beloved Ranger pickup, "Raven". Yes, he "died" the other day. The dash wiring harness burned up... Although I am sad beyond words about this, at least no one was injured. Maybe it is silly, but as the old song says, "I Love My Truck". Yes, he is very old (1999 model), but still is a great truck. Raven can be repaired, and as soon as financially possible we will have him back to running. So, perhaps he is not actually dead but just very critically ill. You know how you just remember some things at moments like these? In the past, some fellow employees had told me that Raven was "just an old junky hoopty" for the junk yard. Those memories came to mind. People should not make fun of other people's rides, as it may be the best they can afford. I am just thankful to even own Raven. Who would keep such an old truck? Someone who loves the truck and can have it repaired for less than buying another used truck. After all, Ford no longer produces these Rangers. Meanwhile, I am without a ride. Please pray for me that all will be OK. I have spent the last 2 days crying and crying some more. The photo was made at happier times, before Raven burned up. 'Will be back soon with a more cheerful post.
