Ole Betsy


Our cars and trucks were always called Ole Betsy. Whether we were driving a truck or a hatchback or sedan, they always had the very same name. It was as if Ole Betsy herself was another family member that just happened to take different forms, colours, and make/models through the years. She was our old reliable.
We lived at the top of a huge hill that was brutal to climb in the middle of a snow storm. Dad would back Ole Betsy up as far as he could go to make a run for it. As he accelerated, us youngsters would cheer on his (and the trucks) efforts as they attempted to maneuver to the top of that hill. In our young minds we thought that we could get Betsy to the top of the hill with enthusiasm and sheer will power…
“Go Betsy!! You can do it!”
Ole Betsy and Dad didn’t let us down on many nights, they always managed to get us home. In reality we could have walked home 90% of the time, but that’s not what I remembered. My recollection is of good times; family camaraderie, us kids hooting and hollering and happy memories. That’s my memory at least…which makes it the one that counts at the end of the day.
Here’s hoping that this Ole Betsy helps you feel all sort of warm and fuzzies, and inspires YOU to take a trip down memory lane.
