Thomas..
 
Greetings once again..
 
After
"The Inauguration"
a local
"Volunteer Fire Company"
agreed to
"Store It For A Few Weeks"
until
"Something Else Could be Arranged!!"
 
Accordingly,
after..
 
 
"The 2005 Lincoln Birthday Celebration"
featuring..
 
 
"2 Gettysburg Firemen"
from
The Inaugural Parade
along with..
 
 
"The Designer Of The Truck"
and..
 
 
"3 Firefighters From DC Fire"
did..
 
 
"The George Washington Birthday Parade"
in
Alexandria
where..
 
 
"The Truck Spent The Night"
at..
 
 
"Station One"
where
George Coryell
"One Of George Washington's Pall Bearers"
and
"My Mother's Descendant"
(She Was A Coryell)
was
"A Firefighter!!"
 
Accordingly,
"Before The Parade"
enlisted..
 
 
"This Family"
for
"A Once In A Life Time Experience!!"
 
And..
 
Speaking of which,
who should..
 
 
"Show Up"
but..
 
 
"General Lafayette"
and
"His Wonder Dog"
"Darby!!"
 
And since,
"He Was A Mason"
we..
 
 
"Parked The Truck"
at..
 
 
The George Washington National Masonic Memorial
for
"The Better Part"
of
"A Year"
before
they said,
"See You Later!!!"
 
"During That Time"
did..
 
 
The 2005 St Patrick's Day Parade
featuring
The Alexandria Highlanders
and
 
 
Boy Scout
Fire Explorers
in..
 
 
"A Tribute The 343 From FDNY"
 
Then there was..
 
 
"The 2005 Memorial Day Parade"
where
"We Teamed Up"
with
"The Red Knights!!"
 
Accordingly,
"Everyone Had Such A Good Time"
"They Came Back"
with..
 
 
"More Riders"
for...
 
 
"The 4th Of July Parade"
featuring..
 
 
"Uncle Sam"
and
"The Boy Scouts!!"
 
Then..
 
"One of The Alexandria Fire Captains"
"Hooked Me Up"
with..
 
 
"Robinson Terminal"
where..
 
 
"We Found A Home"
"Inside"
for
"6 Months"
until
"A Big Shipment Came In"
and..
 
 
"They Filled Me Up With A Tank Of Gas"
and
"Sent Me On My Way!!"
 
During that time..
 
We did..
 
 
"The 2006 George Washington Birthday Parade"
where
"We Made the Paper"
featuring..
 
 
"An Impromptu"
"Lady Liberty"
and..
 
 
"A Retired Flag From The Alexandria National Cemetery"
"The First In The Nation"
and
"Created By"
"Abraham Lincoln!!"
 
Then..
 
There was,
"Another"
 
 
"Impromptu Enlistment"
for..
 
 
 
"The 2006 St Patrick's Day Parade"
followed by..
 
 
 
"The Emancipation Day Parade!!"
 
Then came..
 
 
"The Send Off"
from
"Robinson Terminal"
to..
 
 
Woodrow Wilson's House
and..
 
 
"The Lead Vehicle"
for..
 
 
"The Woodrow Wilson Road Rally!!"
 
Wilson was..
 
 
"The First Member"
of
The Lincoln Highway Association
 
Pretty Cool!!
 
Unfortunately,
"After The Rally"
and
"The Send Off"
from
"Robinson Terminal"
there was
"No Where To Go"
but
"The Street!!'
 
So..
 
After A Few days of that
made arrangements with
"A Local Business"
across
"The Street"
to..
 
 
"Park It Behind The Store"
which
"Worked Out Pretty Well"
but
"It Was Still On The Street"
and
"Subject"
to
"The Whims"
of
"All"
"The Neighborhood Kids!!"
which
"Drove Me Nuts!!"
 
Accordingly,
"During That Month Or So"
did..
 
 
The 2006 4th of July Parade
and..
 
 
"Greeted"
"The Eisenhower's"
and
The 50th Anniversary
of..
 
 
The Interstate Highway
 
 
"Lincoln Highway Convoy
with..
 
 
"Flags Flying!!"
 
Unfortunately,
"Shortly Thereafter"
 
 
"The Windshield Broken"
and..
 
 
"The Truck"
was
"Vandalized"
in some sort of
"Weird Ritual Burning!!"
 
Well..
 
"Needless To Say"
that was
"The End Of That!!"
 
 

"Had Been Through That Before"
in..
 
 
 
"San Francisco"
and
"It Was Time"
to
"Get It Off The Street"
"Fast!!"
 
So..
 
That's when..
 
 
"I Called Kevin"
and said,
"Help!!"
 
More Shortly..
 
Until then..
 
Warmest Regards,
