Jeep Ride

Butch Maisel stopped by Saturday to show Ed Melzer how he had mounted his uniform for display along with a picture of him when he was in the army.

Sunday after church, Butch surprised Ed by stopping by with his friend Pete, who owns a WW II jeep. They took Ed for a spin around the block. It had been 66 years since he had been in one of those!

They dressed up in uniforms of the period, and even brought Ed a jacket to wear. Even the jeep was outfitted with all the accouterments of the period, including a camouflage net!

It wasn't easy squeezing into the jeep. Pete even brought his faithful dog along for the ride!


  1. Love the jeep. Dog is pretty cool too. Did I tell you that I am off this week? I wanted a week of doing nothing, but I guess I will be going camping on Wednesday and Thursday. Let me know what you decided to do on the 3rd. I think I might have tomatoes next week.

  2. Wow, that is so cool! That is so nice how Butch mounted Ed's uniform for display, and then the jeep ride, what a treat! I am sure this will be a trip to remember!

  3. I think you should have called this posting "Jeep Thrills."
