They Also Serve Who Only Stand and Wait

La Truckette spends a lot of time standing and waiting. Of late, she has demonstrated her valor. As I negotiate the change of life, she plays a critical role.

Today I have to pick up the fridge and washing machine as what I have bought for my new apartment. We drive down into deepest Okinawa and load up.

Thousands at his bidding speed
And post o’er land and ocean without rest:

“Doth God exact day-labour, light denied?”

I install them in the new crib.

I then rush back to the house because a conglomeration of students have bought the little blue boat.

We load her on the Truckette.

His state
Is kingly. Thousands at his bidding speed
And post o’er land and ocean without rest:

Bravo La Truckette

As we charge down the road I am sure that the way that the boat is rigged contravenes many laws but in Okinawa, I feel that there is still a feeling of tolerance towards transporting boats.

So, we drop the little blue boat off in Chinen san’s backyard, which is right on the sea. Chinen san, my hero, lets the students keep the boat in his yard, which is directly below the university. Thank you Chinen san.

Little Blue Boat’s new home. I think she will be happy.
