Trucker, part 3








I hope this music works....


If it doesn't work, I'll get it working soon enough.
telli turnam - Musa Eroglu







Every morning before starting the engine,
he thanks God for the truck.

I love happy endings, hurrah for the creator and the hero of the story!
Your work is fantastic. I love your drawings, they are alive!

Cant wait for the next story! Good work.

He looks like a happy man, standing by his truck.

You do these stories so beautifully! Like Celeste, I can't wait for the next one. Each panel is a masterpiece.

YAY! I LOVE the fish oil tablet and how you drew him- it really looks three dimensional! :)

Beautiful :0

This is so silly (in a good way) that it is making us (adults) spellbound like little children. Good job! We wait with bated breath for the next installment, is better than a telenovella.I love it.

Caroline, this is my favorite of your posts. It's emotionally "true" and tells us something valuable. I loved following your friend's brave and intelligent choices as he found ways to get more life in his life. As for the drawings--I want to eat that food, listen to the Turkish music, and I even sort of want the purple truck (although I don't drive!)

What a beautiful story. The ending is perfect. One does have control over one's life. It all depends upon the way one chooses to think about a situation. I love your drawings.

Looking forwward to your next posts... :D

Thanks for sharing the story. I can sympathize with your friend--Americans can be such an inconsiderate bunch, particularly when they get behind the wheel. I used to work at a truck scale & I know lots of truckers, so I can totally relate to the ups & downs. I'm glad your friend's found a way to look at things positively. Please do let him know that SOME of us are considerate of truckers on the road!

I was checking out the food to see what he is eating.Some are not familiar. I like the fact that he is eating healthier. Here I am talking like this guy is real...you are so good at telling these stories.

I loved reading this story. Driving a truck is very demanding! I am so glad that he made the necessary changes!
My husband is a truck driver recruiter for a large trucking co. It is a constant challenge to find good, available drivers and try to find routes which will work for them! They ususally have to be gone from home far too long!

Loved this post and the images - a wonderful thing to think of gratefulness, good nutrition and music and positive thoughts motoring on down the arteries of the great nation. Some of us who go about on foot would be wise to embrace such wise practices.

Celeste Maia said...

Thank you for the advice, I really appreciate it. I just need to figure out how to do it. I am not at all savvy with the computer, I struggle all the time. But I will ask a friend - who has helped me set up the blog - to show me how to do what you suggested.

Barbara Anne said...

Thank you, yet again, for your imaginative, colorful, and wonderful drawings that tell the stories as well as your words do!

A life lesson for all: attitude really is a choice, so why not enhance my whole life/your whole life with gratitude for every little and big and medium thing?

Cheers!
