When I came back outside after handing over too much of my money to the nice lady at the cash register, I discovered a couple of old farmers standing around, looking at Lucille Laverne's back bumper. One of them looked up, smiled at me, and pointed to the sign prominently displayed on the shiny chrome bumper:
"Honey", he said, "ain't that the truth." We all agreed it was, agreed wasn't the weather lovely, and yep, spring was coming soon enough.
As I climbed up into Lula, one of his friends called out, "Hey girl. Love the pink."
Hot damn. I knew driving a big truck would draw the men like bees to honey.
P.S. if you wanted a bumper sticker to show off on your own hot rig, check out www.farmland.org They are free! You could send them a couple of bucks, if you felt like it, to support the preservation of farmlands near you.
