J is for Jalopy

"A jalopy  is a decrepit car, often old and in a barely functional state. 
A jalopy is not a well kept antique car, but a car which is mostly rundown or beaten up."

The Hubs, bless his little heart, loves this old Jalopy.
It's a 1965 GMC truck.
"She"  It has a name.  And that name is "Maggie".

Maggie was originally purchased in the hope
 that he and our son could work together to restore  her   it.
Unfortunately that happened during those busy school years
when my son was balancing academics, clubs and sports,
so the bonding time between father and son took place on the soccer field
instead of under the hood of this old truck.

He used to drive her it to work until the gas prices started to rise.
Maggie gets about 6 miles per gallon.

"She" brings the hubs alot of JOY.
I think another *J* word may be more appropriate........Dare I say it?
Nah, I'll let you fill in the blank......J _ _ _k.

So there you have it.
The *J* word in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.

Joyfully yours,


  1. Yeah, men and their jalopies. Ours is a stripped-down Jeep.

    1. What can you do? I guess they need their toys too.

  2. As soon as I read your title, I thought of that jalopy that Archie Andrews owns in the Archie comics. I used to love those! Good memories... :)

    1. That was a pretty cool jalopy that Archie had!
