Farm Girl Friday -28 October 2011

The Farmer and the Farm Girl headed out this morning .  We had to cross the power dam down at Chenneaux.

And we crossed the Ottawa River and headed into Quebec.  Gotta watch your driving over there.  The QPP aren't known for their leniency  :)

And why were we in Quebec?

To pick up our brand spanking new Ford F150!  Isn't it beautiful?!  Ella loves the colour.  I'm just glad it's not black.  It will be much easier to find in the parking lots.  

This is an example of why farmers are always broke  :)  We have to spend money to make money.  Our old truck is still running and didn't need replacing -if we just worked in an office.  BUT, since Colin needs a truck he can count on, we had to get a new one.  A non-working truck isn't just an inconvenience for us.  Without a working truck Colin loses money.  Especially since seed cleaning season is starting again. 

We got the truck from Shawville Ford, just over the border in Quebec.  We've heard good things about this dealership and a number of neighbours have bought their trucks there.  It's a family owned dealership and they seem like good people.  

I sure hope this truck is better than the old Dodge.

Very pretty! Congrats and enjoy! I had a (new) '69 Dodge Charger, back in the day, the same color. I loved it!

That is so funny! We have the exact same truck but it is a 4-door so the kids can go in and out easily. You will love it. I am so happy with ours, we have had it for a little over a year now and I don't have one complaint. (oh and Sadie picked out the colour too!)
