I'd rather push my Chevy than be seen driving a Ford
I love old Chevy trucks. I got Bertha from Seattle artist Chris Bruch in spring 2003. Bertha is a 1970 1 tone Sea Green pick-up. She took me down to San Francisco, out to the desert of Eastern Washington, the Olympic Rainforest, Belingham, Portland and points inbetween. She helped haul funky old furniture and boxes of stuff to my cafe and my art studio. She was a real stunner, turning heads every block. She was a good friend. Before moving to NY last year, my friend Victoria took her. I'm happy she stayed 'in the family'. On beautiful late spring days like today I sure miss her. Today would have been a perfect day to take Bertha for a ride to the woods.
