Jeep!

Reminiscing over this past September's wedding events♫♪

Over the river and through the woods…
Oh, how that Jeep endured the many broods!
Family, friends, through all types of moods.

Two Hundred acres of timbered trails
Hauling fire wood, camping gear, through the dales,
Exploring, fording streams, passing all the trials.

Until, bumperless, with holed floor boards, no window shield,
Battery burned out, no longer able to pull sleds over the field,
Was put into storage, no power to wield.

Dilapidated, de-palpitated, unable to come to life…
Hauled away, stored at my brother’s and his wife.
Then, a daughter’s engagement, and an idea come to life.

Who knew my brother had the skill?
T’was up to the last minute for him to fill the bill.
Success!  It runs again to escort the Bride…Doesn’t it look swell!!!



a true story

Happy Trails♫♪

  10. What an unusual form of wedding transport - and how nice and personalised for the bride to travel in something that was so much part of her family history. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/GVIbC
