Big blue bronco
You brought us so far
Sad to say goodbye

We finally sold our old 89 Ford Bronco yesterday. I didn't think I would be so sad, I couldn't even watch it drive away. Cried like a baby I did. Lots of memories tied up in that pile of metal.
We bought it in '93 in Florida while my husband was still in the Navy. We drove it all the way across the whole country after he got out. I think it's bulk probably saved our lives when we got stuck in a tornado while crossing Illinois. Many many camping trips and probably a little too much late night 4wheelin'. Pop the top, blast the stereo and it was a cruising machine in the summertime or stick it in 4wd and it would chew through any snow bank in the wintertime.
Ah well... it was getting old and of course my memories will be sweet because I didn't have to drive it the past couple years. I kind of feel like it's the end of something... I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's time to be more serious...I mean the years are just flying by. I've done alot but there is still so much more. Maybe it's time to truly grow up.
GAH....I hope not.
