A thought on a memory...

I found this picture awhile back, not quite sure where, but it made me instantly think about the very similar van that Scott drove around for about the first two years of our relationship. He initially bought it so he could haul around his band equipment easier, but in the end it ended up being a HUGE nuisance. This van had so many problems, but somehow Scott always figured out a way to keep it running.

The reason why this photo reminded me of his van was because for a period of time the van was covered with spray paint i.e. drawings, words (inappropriate and odd), etc. Scott even drew me a tree on passenger side that had on initials "carved" into it. It also had a bird on it that he named Chelseabird (i.e. how I got may name Chelseabird).

That van held a lot of fun memories from Scott and I's early years of our relationship, but I have to say that I am not sad that it is gone. I'm so glad Scott has a nicer, reliable vehicle now.

It was fun while it lasted.
