Daily Prompt: OLD, BROKEN BUT NOT FORGOT

75-OldTruck-NK

He’s an old friend. Slowly rusting away in a green field. There are worse possible fates, for men and for old trucks.

  3. This truck has quite an interesting face. do you see it? Windshield eyes, hood nose and grill smile. With a little touching up it could be in the Disney movie – Cars or Trucks, or whatever is out now.

    • Yeah, right. Fat chance. I am not on FP’s radar, but thanks. It’s a favorite picture of mine, too. Evocative. Old age, with grace.

        • I appreciate the honor you pay me. YOU make this worthwhile. WordPress is our platform. We don’t need their approval or validation. We want it because we all want approval, all crave OFFICIAL recognition. But need it? I have 100,000+ hits that say I’m doing something right, not to mention readers/lookers like you who actively tell me. You can’t give me an official badge, but who is to say that your opinion is not as valid — maybe MORE valid — than theirs? So thank you. Kind words from followers, readers, lookers … you are the people I’m reaching out to. I wouldn’t object to an official badge of recognition — but unless it comes with a big $$$ prize too, well … it’s just a badge, right? I could make one for myself, the UnFreshly UnPressed Award πŸ™‚ I may yet do it and give it to all the people who deserve a badge and don’t have one!
