When Is A Car Not A Car?

The answer to the question is, when it's a truck! Amy and I realized that this fall we are going to need another vehicle (since Amy won't be able to Rachel to TCNJ). We began thinking about the next car we would need--a car for Amy so that Rachel could use the black Camry. As we began the search, we originally were looking for a car for Amy. Now that has changed. We are looking for a truck for me.

The longer I live in Sussex county, the more I see the need for a truck. I have already had to borrow a truck from a church member a few times. I also wanted to get some dirt for my garden and wasn't able to (since I really didn't want to put it in the truck of my Camry!)

I never really thought of myself as a "truck person" but it seems that I am becoming one. I also never though of myself as an early riser, but since moving here, I am usually at the church between 6 and 6:30 in the morning and I love it! I can accomplish so much more in the quiet that the early morning brings. I also have a chance to spend time with God without any interruptions!

So, today Amy and I are heading over to Quakertown, PA to look at a truck. Will it be the one we get? I don't know, but I do know that if it is, I will truly feel like I have made the complete change over into a "country" preacher!

I always knew you were a country boy at heart. After all, you love cowboy boots and cowboy's hard to believe you were raised in a city! Just keep the straw out of your mouth. You never know what wildlife has been brushing up against it!

It is dangerous to live in Oklahoma. You begin to think truck is the norm. However, many times I wished someone I knew owned a truck. Good luck on your search. I never thought of NJ being truck country.
