A beautiful chapter of my life is turning the page.  It is a romance of sorts between me and Lucille.  We met in Jacksonville, Texas about 7 years ago.  I was driving by and Lucille caught my eye.  I instantly noticed how classy she was and it seemed we were meant for each other.  Lucille entered my life when I traded my truck in for a luxury car that I named Lucille.

B.B. King has a Lucille (guitar).  Kenny Rogers sang about her, “You picked a fine time to leave me Lucille.”  Now, it is my turn to pay tribute to Lucille. 

Several months ago, Lucille entered the last stages of her life with me.  She is having mechanical problems and being a duct tape mechanic, I cannot hang onto her.  I must let her go.  I can’t take care of her, and I do not want to spend my money at the mechanic shop.

So, yesterday, I put a For Sale sign on Lucille and now I wait for someone else to love her.  She will always be in my heart, but sometimes parting is sweet sorrow. 

R.I.P. Lucille

  1. Oh no, now I will never find you. I was going to go looking for the car since you won’t give me an address so I can come visit. lol

  2. I would give you my address but last time, Vito and Guido showed up at my house. But if you do want to come up this way, maybe we could do a little scavenger hunt for my address. First clue is found at Mel’s Diner in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. GO!

  3. Bill,

    You would certainly like Judy. She is quiet a card. We often pretend that we do not like each other, but I think she actually likes me.

    Lucille is still in the family. I have had a couple of bites but no buyers yet.
