On Wednesday, I sold my 2000 Chevy S10. When I first started driving it, there were less than 1000 miles on it. There are now nearly 125,000 miles on it. This truck has been with me in good times and in bad. It moved me to Chicago for a summer, in and out of dorms for two years, into our first apartment and house. Janie and I made many road trips in it. It’s hauled my old stereo to weddings so I could be a DJ. I also used it to haul my Roland keyboard around to gigs and practices. It towed my brother’s old Silverado from Cullman all the way back to his house in Hartselle. I used it for everything and it never complained. I do feel bad that I sold it, but the guy who bought it is a piano mover and tuner and he’s an Alabama fan. I feel like it’s going to a good home and not some heartless auction.
So long good friend.
