Ready, set, GO!
My third year of A-Z digital watercolors of trucks commence April 1st.
The images are the back end of trucks that I photograph during my morning commute. After I get to work, I process them through a phone app called Waterlogue and post to Instagram and other social media.
The best way to view the entire ongoing series is on my Tumblr.
The A-Z Blogging Challenge is a fun way to discover new blogs.

OOPS! Color me confused! Wrote another post yesterday on the same topic and forgot that I’d already scheduled this one. Double the fun!
It’s time for what the April A to Z Blogging Challenge crew call the Reflection post.
Where I contemplate how my A-Z went et al.
To put it succinctly, April was a busy month.
To go into specifics:
3 blog challenges: A-Z Trucks here, A-Z Fluevog Shoes there, and a fake journaling project that this year I only posted to a private Facebook group.
Not to mention my usual 2 day jobs and a burgeoning obsession with weaving.
Most of the truck posts were completed in February and March, which made all the other activities easier to complete. I also did Sunday posts, because, why not.
I’ll now copy what I wrote on the Fluevog Conclusion because I’m feeling lazy:
A-Z, it was good.
They had Google Doc spreadsheets, they were good.
I met some new blogging buddies, that was good.
I didn’t have time to visit many new blogs. Not so good, on my part.
Big thanks to the A-Z Team for coming up with a great new format for the links and helpful tips on the A-Z Blog. You made the ride much smoother this year!
I had given up on finding a Z truck. I saw another ZIM truck in SC last month, but it Zoomed past in another lane as we were making a U-turn.
Last Friday (the last day of commuting before May begins) as I contemplated my dilemma, I got to thinking about the Swift company graphic and how their stabby looking S could be considered a Z (OK, so it’s backwards). And lo and behold, a Swift truck appeared right before me in my exit lane for work. Synchronicity, my friends, synchronicity.
Thus concludes Trucks A-Z 2018. Will I find 26 more for next year?
Do vans instead?
We won’t find out until 2019!
No #22 truck for today.
Since it’s Earth Day, I offer you the Google Maps Car, as seen on I-605
(I’ve seen it twice now, on the same stretch of highway). Nope, couldn’t find it.
How about this “Hula Truck”?
Lots of Green-ery!
