Brother (aka, Mr. Responsible) got himself an new truck. 
*insert hillbilly accent, because I know you will*

Yes, he's a grown-up now. 
Complete with truck payment and laundry duties.
With Mom and Dad in Canada, brother was on his own to test drive, haggle the salesperson, and sign the agreement to pay, on time, for this beauty.
In the interest of proving to Dad that he got a good deal, Brother would like me to include the following picture:

Some people want to please Daddy with monetary success or fancy degrees.
Our Dad is far more impressed by getting a good deal on a truck with a low odometer reading.
We all define success a different way.

He is proud.
I am proud of him.
Dad will be very proud.
His son is growing up, taking responsibility for his future.
But, inside, he is still the little boy who wanted to wear his boots to school every day, even when they were way too small.


Congratulations, Brother!


  1. Yay, Norman! Awesome truck! I am jealous!

    I couldn't help but smile as I read this one. Especially when it got to the boots. :)

  2. Congratulations to Norman! What a big step to becoming a grown up!
