The Ides of March - 2000

In Loving Memory.




Rick taught me: 

 

Fries are better with mayo

Let your dog run free

Righty tighty, lefty loosey

How to hoot like an owl

Bird feeders are cool

Check your tire pressure

Use the proper tool for the job,

And put it away when done

Mexico is cheaper

There’s quite a bit of room in a sleeper cab

Red squirrels are bad squirrels

How to calculate gas mileage

Big tires are better

The higher the truck, the closer to God

To try new foods once in a while

Mary Kitchen corned beef hash is yummy

When you pass a big truck,

They can see what you’re doing

How to build a proper bonfire,

And be careful if you use gas to get it going

Don’t fidget in the woods,

If you sit still long enough,

No one likes a JB Hunt driver

Labs are great dogs

How to figure miles on a map

You get traffic tickets when you don’t pay attention

Classic cars are better than new ones

Never stop in the middle of a mud hole

Pepsi is better than Coke

You jackknife when the trailer wants to go first

A good butt rub can solve anything

Don’t rush through an antique store

How to paddle a canoe

Loud pipes save lives

Tuck and roll

How to lean into a turn

And split the wood for the stove

California is expensive

To slow dance at different tempos

To hold hands whenever you can

To keep the shiny side up

"The higher the truck, the closer to God"

That's the coolest thing I've heard, ever! Rick sounds like a guy to miss utterly. Pity the ones that keep hanging around. :-(

Yes, he was a very funny guy. It took a long time to get over his death. But life goes on, I survived, and he would be proud of me.
BTW, Happy belated BD.
