Old Paint

I saw this old Chevy Pickup the other day and wondered what stories it could tell.

Stories of a young man driving to town for feed, school or to pickup his beautiful date?  A college student leaving home for the first time?  A rancher hauling livestock to the market and groceries home for his wife and young family?

I don’t know what year this Chevy was made, but I might have an idea who drove it.  I am willing to guess that in this Chevy’s prime gas was cheap, mail was fast and the party line was open.  A time much more simple than today.

They say the days go slow, but the years go fast.  The older I get the faster time flies.  Each new year a bit more busy; a tad more complicated.

 What stories do think the ole Chevy could tell?

    I always wonder the same thing when I see old cars or old buildings.
    Don’t forget when the milk man still brought milk to your door.
    I miss the bottles with the cream on the top. Didn’t know how good I had it.

    And yeah, what up with the days going faster when you get older?

    Enjoyed your post and loved the pictures. 🙂

      I am sure those old houses and barns could tell tall tales. I wonder about abandoned farm steads too. It amazes me to think about what my Grandma (almost 92) has seen in her life time. What will I see in my lifetime? Today is a much different than it was in the early 1980’s.

    I love the photos today, Robyn! And, yes, old things definitely tell a story, don’t they? I’ve got a blog post coming up about that very thing. Great minds, right?!

    If it’s the one at T’s it has a lot of stories that Alfred could have told you. He was a great story teller!

    What great pictures! I’m sure it would be able to tell some wonderful stories! 🙂

  5. I have those same kind of thoughts often about old vehicles, abandoned homes (you know ‘the ol’ home place sort) pioneer churches, one-room school houses… my mind loves to ponder and wander and think of stories… I love your shots of this old chev… looks much like the one my dad had for years… Thank you Robyn, for sharing on ‘Weekly Top Shot.’ I hope you’ll come share again next week… I enjoy your blog!

    I forgot to tell you my sisters and I rode in and drove it numerous times. Lots of good memories.
