this second image (the small one) is the coolest picture I’ve seen in a long time…only because of the sentiment it holds. My brother took this TODAY (out his car window— sorry for the picture quality) while out clocking his mileage for his latest run in Maryville. This is our old landcruiser that we sold for next to nothing years ago (with over 250k miles on it). Dad said the guy who bought it was going to “fix it up”…and…well, apparently he did!! We didn’t know the guy or where he lived or anything about where the car was headed…which made its re-discovery an awesome surprise! Same stickers (jeff updated them when he got the car so they’re a smidge different from the 1998 pic), same dents…same character…new drivers. We have a lot of memories from riding around in this old car (its a 1991!!). Many of my highschool and college memories involve it…as I’m sure is the same with Jeff’s (my brother). What I love the most about this picture is that this is IT. Its not a replica. Its not just a picture of what it looked like…this is IT. Years later…the landcruiser still lives!!

it makes me smile. I’m happy to have a picture capturing it still running even years waaaaaay beyond its years! Yay Byron! Its nice to revisit the memories. Makes me feel younger and more carefree….just to forget about the tasks and “to-dos” of daily life around here and remember a time when responsibility was for the over-achivers. 😉 (Don’t try to deny it…You know you did it too…)

What sparks YOUR fondest memories?
