Last Sentry Duty


Oh Mr. Willys, 
what rough roads have you traveled, 
what sights have you seen? 


How boring it must seem to you,
 to end your days standing guard
over a field-
watching birds fly, 
& horses graze.

  1. I think Mr. Willy thinks he's in Heaven, because that description sounds like Heaven to me!

  5. Stories that truck could tell!
    For some reason - the tires don't match the body!!
    They have tred and are NOT flat??

  6. I learned to drive in an old 49 Willy, this brings back fun memories of that and 4 wheeling with my family.

  7. Mr. Willys...perhaps he watched several generations of young men returning from war and thinks his quiet retirement a bit of heaven.

  18. Ha ha, I can kind of relate to that old jeep. Instead of rust, I have wrinkles and stiff joints and have found my pasture. Life is good if slower.

  19. Even though rusted, it's still a beauty to me!

  24. I so often look at something vintage, used, and standing sentry as you so eloquently put it, and ponder its hey-days. Love the captures and your questions to it.

  25. You sure make me think of my grandfather today. He was obsessed with restoring Willys. He had a couple of them.
