Breaking in "Big Jim"

The week of Funky Junk Old Blue Had a bit of heart failure and could not make the haul to and from the show.  I came to the realization that I needed to get a "new truck" for this junking business.  With a heavy heart I went on my took about 5 minutes on Craigslist.  I found a truck over in Colville from an amazing family that get this...owns a Farm and an Antique store The Front Porch Farm !!  It was Serendipity!  A Caribbean Turquoise color, I named him after Jimmy Buffett...So I am proud to welcome "Big Jim" to the farm!  We wasted no time trying out the 4 wheel drive, We made trip after trip up the mountain for firewood.  I love this time of year, the smell of firewood and the time we spend in the woods with family and friends is something I have always cherished.  We came home with a good load, clear heads and the comfort in knowing we had made a good purchase in Big Jim!
