Here's my baby!! 1958 aljo travel trailor. I got her with my first paycheck as a nurse (when I was an LPN) 12 years ago! I don't have the right vehicle to tow right now...so, sadly to say I've been traveling without her! I miss her dearly & haven't camped in that thing in what feels close to a decade... I can't wait until I have the means to fix her up and show her off as I continue to travel.
Pardon the mess on the inside! It's storage for now, but you can see the original woodwork and the old school ice box! Those curtains were one of the first things I made with my Singer sewing machine...they served their purpose 😆
Oh man, and the lamp to the top right belonged to my grandfather.
Which reminds me...today actually marks the anniversary of his passing. He was loyal beyond belief and is probably one of the reasons why I don't quarrel with my family. He was not only "Mr. Fix it" with his hard working hands, but he was "Mr. Fix it" with his heart as well. He was the glue that kept our family together the second things would begin to fall apart. Because of him, I have so much to be grateful for to this day.
I miss you, grampa & love you, but I know you can hear me when I talk to you and gramma. You look out for me and every now and then I still see you both in my dreams. You still give sound advice whenever I need it, even if I'm reluctant to hear it.
Last fall, I was running away from something and you came to me & told me to turn around and make things right. I'll never forget that dream. That part of you hasn't changed. ❤ (you know mom is gonna read this and cry, so make sure she has one of gramma's handkerchiefs nearby 😊😙). Thank you mom for taking the pictures today and watching over my gypsy wagon! Love you xoxo ❤
