Tonto? Nelly?


TODAY I’LL GO  fetch more sawdust as soon as I unload the rest of the hay from the truck. Even the truck is a delight, an old ’86 Ford Ranger with king cab that I bought from Art Eisenmann before they moved away east. Zara says it’s the oldest truck on earth. Not quite, but certainly older than her. After Art told me the truck had been his faithful companion, I couldn’t help but name it Tonto, But I confess, its more often used nickname is Nelly. As in Giddyup, Nelly.

    Why am I picturing a windy day with sawdust being laid out all over Howell County? When my dad had a shop (hobby making reproductions of antique furniture…with inlay and all) in our back yard, I had sawdust in my hair much of the time. He wouldn’t let my brother, Bill, or me near a saw.

    I want to ride in Nelly or Tonto or whatever.
