THE BIG ANGUS








AND THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED!
OUR BROTHER AND HIS WIFE ANA MOVED FROM MAUI A FEW MONTHS AGO. UPON ARRIVAL IN PORTLAND, THEY WENT STRAIGHT DOWN TO EUGENE TO PICK UP BIG  ANGUS! ALONG THE WAY THEY STOPPED IN ALBANY, AND PUT ON THE CAMPER. A HUGH FEAT IN AND OF ITSELF!
THE OFFICAL NAME OF THE TRUCK IS  YET TO BE DETERMINED, BUT BIG ANGUS IS MY NAME FOR IT  UNTIL IT IS OFFICIALLY TITLED!
BIG ANGUS IS A ONE AND A HALF TON FLATBED, DUMP TRUCK FOUND IN A BARN. IT HAS HAD ONLY TWO OWNERS AND THE LAST OWNER JUST KEPT IT IN HIS BARN.
KENNY AND ANA HAVE WORKED MANY LONG AND HARD HOURS GETTING BIG ANGUS READY FOR IT'S MAIDEN VOYAGE TO UPSTATE NEW YORK!
THEY ARE MOVING CLOSER TO TWO OF THREE WONDERFUL DAUGHTERS AND SEVEN GRANDCHILDREN.
HOW WONDERFUL IS THAT!
CAN LIFE GET MUCH SWEETER THAN THIS? I DON'T THINK SO!
THEY ARE GETTING CLOSE TO DEPARTING-AND I AM ALREADY GOING THROUGH BROTHER [AND OF COURSE HIS WONDERFUL WIFE ANA!] WITHDRAWL!
OVER TIME, LIFE HAS A WAY OF SEPARATING US FROM LOVED ONES-AND SOMTIMES LIFE BRINGS US BACK TOGETHER, TO LOVE, LAUGH AND TO  ENJOY EACH OTHER AS THE KIDS WE WERE GROWING UP AND AS THE ADULTS WE ARE TODAY.
I WOULD NOT TRADE THIS CHANCE TO LIVE WITH MY BROTHER-EVEN FOR JUST A FEW SHORT MONTHS, FOR ANYTHING IN THE WORLD.
HE IS SUCH A GENTLE SOUL, ARTIST, MUSCIAN, WOODCARVER, FATHER, GRANDFATHER AND THE BEST BROTHER IN THE WORLD!
STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT STORY-NESTING IN THE CAMPER-TRUCK ENVY!
ENJOY!
DIANA, DONNA AND DEBBY

Now that's what I call a big ole truck!!!! I'm so glad that your family is moving closer to their children. Being with family and near family is everything.
