What's That?



Driving down the road, I saw this and grabbed my camera. As soon as we stopped at a traffic light, I snapped a picture. I started chatting away telling Johnny that I bet the truck was carrying that cross to some church for an Easter pageant.

 "But," I said, "it's really not very tall. They should have made it a couple of feet taller. I'll bet they're going to put it up on something higher so that it looks taller."

"Sally," he told me, "that the way the truck is built--it's a tow truck. That attachment is on it to lift the cars it carries."

Join Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for more outdoor Wednesday posts.

It does look like it. I had to use one when they towed my corvett to the garage years ago. Kathy

Darlene said...

I had to giggle at that. Yes, it does look like they could be taking the cross somewhere.♥

♥ Kathy said...

:D you're so cute ♥ Now that you said it though, I think it's a cross disguised as a tow truck..

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

I agree with Kathy, I believe it's a cross in disguise....Thanks for sharing, and I'm glad I'm not the only one who carries my camera every where...

Hey, we all see the world through different eyes and from different perspectives. Thank goodness. We might miss something special.
Keep watching, girl!

This is too funny! But we do see crosses in unexpected places. I was just towed last night. Broke down on the way home from work yesterday. AAaccckkk!

HEY SALLY,
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THAT AWESOME PICTURE.
IT DOES LOOK LIKE A CROSS. I THINK THAT ESPECIALLY AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, THE LORD ALLOWS US TO SEE CROSSES IN UNUSUAL PLACES AND
UNUSUAL THINGS SO WE WILL KNOW HE IS ALWAYS PRESENT...AND LIKE A TOW TRUCK HE IS THERE TO HELP US WHEN WE ARE BROKEN.
THAT WAS AN AWESOME PICTURE.
BLESSINGS SWEET LADY

that's not something you see every day!

Barbara H. said...

How funny! I was thinking it was a cross being transported, too.

Coloradolady said...

That is funny.

Bo said...

Melissa Miller said...

What a neat idea to snap a photo of the cross.

Happy Spring and OW! :)

Marsha said...

We all see what we want to sometimes and you had Easter on your mind ;)

Clif said...

Wow! Cheers to your husband for "rolling" out of bed at 5:00. He must be eager to get his day started. (Golfing maybe). Those days are over for me. Now I stay in bed until at least 6:00. Your DREAM breakfast is mine too. But being diabetic, it doesn't happen too often.

Raggedy Girl said...

I have got to remember to carry my camera. I think it looks like a cross too.

Mrs. B. Silly said...

That's so cute. Thanks for having the self confidence to share your silliness with us all!
Hugs, Bridget

Mrs. B. Silly said...

p.s. sorry about the Holly/Denise thing. Denise is not a favorite person of mine either, I just thought she danced slightly better but that's not saying much!

claudie said...

Sally it looks like there are 2 crosses on that truck, One big one and one little one on top...funny.
Just wanted to point out a little typo "that the way... I think you would want to know lol
Love Claudie

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I had to enlarge the picture, Sally, to see that truck. It did look like a big cross--until I enlarged it. I have seen those kinds of tow trucks though..

If people think it's a cross, that's probably a GOOD thing!
Hugs,
Betsy

Mama said...

lol, Thanks for the giggle, I also preferred your theory, you put a lot of thought into it. Happy Outdoor Wednesday, Kathy.

jeanne said...

Hello Sally, you have made me laugh so hard and your hubby's comment made me laugh even harder. Thanks for sharing the 'jokes on you' story. It did look like a cross. I do not see a tow truck up close ever.

You are probably right about the owner of the cabin. He has children so they will be deciding what to do. Money is no problem with this family, they own lots of property here.

Hugs...Jeanne

Charlotte said...

I figured it out after looking at it for awhile, then I read further where your husband told you what it was. Should have read further instead of trying to figure it out for myself.
Like your Blue Monday wordle on your sidebar.

Light and Voices said...

Your header is just divine! You certainly are ready and willing to use that camera. Good job finding that cross, taking the shot and posting it.

Sweetie said...

I thought it was a cross also. Who knows - maybe your hubby was wrong!!

salmagundi said...

Judi said...

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Oh Sally this is too funny ! It does look like a cross though.

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

lol this is funny. thanks for the laughs :-) I would never have guessed.

Your husband must think you are such a sweetheart to think of such :-)

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Well, you've got me laughing! That is a great story! laurie

Cathy said...

Well, Dear, it shows what your mind is on. :) And thanks for your sweet comment.

nikkicrumpet said...

ROFL....that is the funniest thing ever! I bet Johnny was just rolling his eyes when you weren't looking! The best part is that you took the picture. The tow truck driver was probably thinking "hmm I wonder what her problem is?" What a wonderful story!!!

Dixie said...

Sally dear.. that perception simply shows whats in your heart... what a wonderful view of the world you have my dear blogging friend...
blessings. Dixie

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

It looks like a cross to me too! As many times as I have had my van towed, you would think I would recognize that, and I didn't either until you got to the part where DH told you it was a tow truck, lol.

Here is my point of view...it looks like a cross, so it is a cross! It just happens to be one that hooks up cars though.
