As many of you know life has been a bit of a roller coaster lately..we are renovating the basement, opening the new shop, presenting at the Home & Garden Expo (thank goodness that is over until next month!)….and so why not just buy a monster vintage bread truck!
The hubby and I have been chatting about should I buy another truck to haul stuff for the shop & barn. We poke around on craigs list and he found a bread truck and I actually liked the idea of it vs. a big old box truck. I thought it had better style and was easier to get in and out of. We contacted the guy about the truck and it had been sold. Oh well I thought!
Then he called with another truck he had in stock….so Saturday hubby met me at the expo and we went to look at it…the big questions was really if I could drive it! I have to say I’m not the best driver in large vehicles:-) I’ve had a couple incidents with Ira that we won’t discuss. Any who…I drove it and I think James (the hubby) had already decided we were going to buy it. I know I need it but the expenses wasn’t planned (ugh…). Basically I walked out in the matter of an hour with a new addition to the Stylish Patina family Gerty (or Gert). She is Ira’s new sister and she is named after my grandmother Gertrude who I adored. I always remember by dad caller her Gert and sometimes playing around called her Gerty. Ira was named after the hubby’s grand father so we are keepin’ it in the family!
I love giving the trucks vintage / old school names!
Here she is…….good old Gerty! (My mom is dying right now reading that our new truck is named after her mother!)
