Ruby Saw The Light Of Day

I call my new truck Ruby. She is a 2015 Barcelona Matalic Red Toyota Tacoma. She has about 600 miles on her and 200 of those were miles to pick her up in another town in order to get the color I wanted. When The Lord permits me to have something nice I try to take good care of it, so with all the bad weather ruby has hardly seen the light of day. Today was a beautiful sunny day so we drove to Devine and Bigfoot, Texas. You might wonder how I get around while saving Ruby's beauty. I sell my old truck to John and then borrow it then I wash it for him since washing vehicles is against his religion. The picture of the building was last an alternative school for troubled kids. John's nephew was a teacher there and then a principal. It's closed now and his nephew isi in the education field in a prison.

Ruby sounds like a beautiful truck. I like red too. That is the color of my vehicle. I like the Tacoma too, my brother has a silver one. I have been playing catch up on the blogs since the holidays. Glad everything is good in your neck of the woods. Take care, Sheila

Congratulations on your new Ruby!

I know all about washing trucks being against ones religion... Recently I had my truck in for some front end work. When I went to pick it up they said it was out front and handed me the keys. I almost didn't recognized it as they had it all washed and shined up!
