For the past 6 years we've had a fixture on our property. It put us in good company of almost all near red-neck country dwellers around us.

Mr. Wiedz's step-grandpa gave us the 1960 Chevy 2 ton pick-up. We could use it as we needed or sell it.

We did use it. It was our barn. We kept the hay in it while we kept the cows. And it stored all the chicken coup stuff when the chicken coup became a wood shed.

The truck wasn't as well loved by others. My dad was chief in asking so politely when it would be gotten rid of. The lady next door, when she was getting ready to sell the house that was built behind it in the photo, wanted it gone before she put the house on the market. The neighbors up the hill have made a couple comments. Oddly enough, the two houses that had to drive by it or look out their living room windows at never said a thing!

A couple of weeks ago Mr. Wiedz put the truck up for sale on Craigs List. And we got a call. The guy came out last weekend and picked it up (plus a bunch of other things from the shed). We were excited since the other option was going to be to pay to have it taken from us.

Since the guy came for it though, we're missing the truck a little. We've looked at it for 6 years. It is missing. I'm sure we'll get used to it though!

Yet another reason to love Craigslist. Truck gone = happy neighbors. We have plenty of old eye-sores around our farm, but it is funny how they become part of the landscape and I barely see them anymore.
