a man-boy and his truck or ute
It is beautiful and suits Ming perfectly. What is it with the knit hat? Both of my babies wear them even when it’s warm outside. Ming wears his well. He is very handsome.
I don’t get the hat thing either!
Julie, What a cool gift. Take care, Bill
He doesn’t want me to touch it – ha!
It might seem like Ming is a spoilt brat (yes!) but the joy of this was Ants giving it to him – unforgettable!
I don’t think he’s spoiled. It’s great that Ants could give him the truck. I’m sure Ming is in seventh heaven over it.
Take me for a ride in your truck, Mac… Take me for a ride in your truck Mac.. take me for a ride, take me for a ride, take me for a ride in your truck. Mac.
haha — you can’t hear the tun in my head, but I think it’s very clever!
Nice truck… Or is that Ute?
Congratulations Ming! It’s beautiful!!!! ~
Pride of ownership!
And huge insurance costs for under 25 – argh!
Kewl……I had to look up ‘ute’ on your previous post. He is very handsome.
Yes a few people weren’t familiar with the Aussie ute – ha! Thanks so much for your comment.
He looks happy with it…………………..
He also looks feral!
Tell him not to get any tickets…
He won’t – I’m the one who gets those!
I love it…and the smiles
Best day for a long time!
The picture says it all Diane
what a great day for you all! so happy the three of you had this opportunity to just have some joy in your life.
Ming was shocked speechless (a rare occurence!)
I am still recovering!
Now that’s what we call a Bukkie…. great present for Ming… Toyota Hilux is it..??? Lucky Man… tell him I say congratulations, and drive carefully….
Afrikaans for LDV… or Ute.. or Van… or lorry depending where one lives…
Very, very nice! And Ming looks very happy. What a wonderful gift. And now I have a visual to go with the word “ute” so I won’t mistake it for a musical instrument again!
Funnily enough we did think of getting him a ukelele!
That is funny! Maybe I was being psychic instead of foggy!
I think he looks very very happy!!!
And so he should!
This would have to be one of the best birthday presents any young man about the country could ever receive.
I have no doubt of his joy at receiving it and showing it off to his mates.
Well done to you & Anthony for your love & thoughtfulness – it wouldn’t be easy to get around in the country (or bush) without transport – gee, I sometimes have trouble in the inner city without a car these days.
Ming is still so overwhelmed!
Wow! What a gift! I can imagine that the gift will grow old with Ming and have all kinds of sentimental value. Nice!
The memory will last forever!
Yes, it will.
You had me look up ute. Is that an Australian term? I’ve never heard it here in the US. Congratulations to Ming!
Men and their trucks. And I never heard the word ute either. I learn a lot from blogging. Tell him to be safe.
Don’t worry – he drives like a granny!
yay! I’m so happy for Ming!
Fabulous! What a treat that you were able to do this together! :
It had to be done with Ants.
… Nice car, show me what it can do, Ming ??? *laughing
I’ll send him over to give you a drive!
Great … when is he coming????!!! *laughing
It;s hard to know which is more handsome, the lad or the vehicle. (Of course you know the answer.)
The brat/lad got his hair cut today. Until then the ute was definitely the winner in the handsome stakes!
He looks so happy
By then (a few hours later) he was! He sometimes cries when he gets overwhelmed.
