My son and I snuck into Visalia last week picked up Three Studes from under Mr. Biggs' nose. Parked in the parking lot was Pete so of coarse Mabel Had to park beside him. While Bobby kept Mr Biggs busy I paid for my Studes. I'll Let Mr Biggs add to this story cause he has a yarn to spin.

I bought one of those at Harbor a few weeks ago. NOT a coupe express, but a nice Studebaker K7 ( I believe) 3/4 tn. Anybody needing a REAL CE, look on ebay!

Yeah, talk about SNEAKY! There I was - strapped down and plugged in at the blood bank when my cellphone rings.:( It's a struggle to answer since the needle's in my left arm and I carry my cellphone in my left pants pocket.[B)]
I start to wiggle and squirm - trying to get my right hand into the left pocket to find out who was calling ol' StudeBob and why. One of the nurses there took note of my appearant discomfort and scurried over to ask if I was feeling alright.

"Bob, are you alright?"

"Arlene, I'm fine - I just need to get my phone out of my pocket. It's vibrating to indicate that there's a call and I can't reach it."

"Where is it?" Arlene asks.

"It's in my left pants pocket. Any chance you could get it for me?"

"You want me to put my hand in your pocket, Bob? Here with all these donors and nurses watching?"

"H*ll Arlene, what kind of actions would you take if I passed out 'er somethin'???"

"Yeah, but that would be different!" she says. Lookin' around to see who's watching, she thrusts her hand into my pocket and retrieves the buzzing phone. She flips it open and hands it to me...

"Hello? Oh - hi Anne. You and Bobby are coming to Visalia? What for? Don't you have a Harbor Freight in Fresno? Oh, I see..... so they're out of Golden Hawk blower belt adjustment tools, but they still have a few at the Visalia store. Sure. No, I understand. I should be done here at the blood bank by then. What's that? No, I'm NOT making a withdrawl - I'm donating platelets. Yeah - I should be done by the time you get down this way and Harbor Freight is less than a block from the blood bank. I'll try to meet with you guys at Harbor Freight."
I flip the phone back shut and Arlene shoots me a sly grin. "
I 'spose you want me to put it BACK now, 'eh?"
I just laugh.

An hour later I pull Pete into a parking space that I figure makes him readily visible. I head inside to peruse all the Chinese finery in the Harbor Freight emporium. I needed a particular device for unclogging drains and I figured I might find such in HF. To my utter amazement, they do have such a tool and the danged thing's made in the USA!
While marvelling over that point, Bobby appears from around the end of that isle and starts up a conversation. He allowed as how his mom was up front paying for her purchase. He also was "up front" by telling that his mom had purposely sent him to distract me while she bought what she'd come after. I thought that was odd, since I didn't have need for another Golden Hawk belt tensioner tool anyways.
Bobby's droning on about some particular Stude parts interchange while I'm wondering what it is I've just had snatched from my turf! The answer was mere seconds away. Directly, Action Annie appears with a bagfull of merchandise. "StudeBob! Lookee what I got! snicker-snicker-snicker"
She lays the top of the bag open and I look in to see three scale models of Studebaker trucks therein. I exhale an involuntary groan while Anne flashes a devilish grin. "You snooze - you lose!" she gloats. Naturally, I try to act as tho I couldn't care less. And just as naturally, Annie sees right thru my veneer.

Since by now, it's nigh onto lunch time, we agree to converge on a favorite eatery of mine where we fritter away an hour or more trying to one up each other with Studebaker tales.
I will say that I had to wonder what sorta thoughts were running thru the minds of the lesser souls our two-Stude caravan passed as we drove cross town to the restaurant. Anne managed to get Mabel into a spot next to the restaurant windows and I'm sure was a hit with the patrons. I saw at least one of them ask Anne about Mabel while we were waiting to order. And I also heard some nice comments when we were walking out to leave.

I watched as Anne, Bobby & Mabel purred off down the road before I got into Pete and headed home to tackle my clogged swink drain.
I was still smarting a bit from having missed out on the '38 trucks here in Visalia, but I reminded myself that thru the years I'd hauled many more
