I like this snapshot and the story it tells. You can match the picture up to page 120 of Visiting Tom.
Indies, not undies.
Over on the sneezingcow YouTube channel we just reposted some footage back from when Truck was given a nice award. I couldn’t be at the ceremony because I was headed out on book tour, so we shot this video, which includes a big thank you to independent booksellers, me demonstrating how to write a book and decorate your office like a bachelor, footage of me and my beloved 1951 International L-120 pickup truck, and a demonstration of how to hypnotize a chicken.
*At least I think I sent my check…better look through the big stack of paper on the floor beside the desk…
Used that ’51 International last night. Had a four-year-old ridin’ co-pilot.
Just got an email from a reader who writes:
i just finished Truck. i came across it accidentally at the library while looking for books on anti-lock brakes. go figure, huh. but what a grand stroke of luck.
I’ve done several posts about the 2009 Red Power Parade (perhaps because I got to be grand marshal of a parade consisting of nothing but International Harvesters…surely a Top Ten country boy moment) (as a result of this book), and here’s another one inspired by an email I just received from Jean Cointe, an International Harvester dealer and aficionado from France. Seems Jean was clearing out his digital camera and found these two photos:
Fearless leader “Other Mike” reviews the parade route.
You may be the Grand Marshal, but when the Scout runs dry halfway through the parade, you will bail out and push just like everybody else!
