    a few people have asked how i got the nick name tinlizzy, my dad was a truck driver and i spent most of my young years on the road wiht him, I loved it as much as he, plus I was a real tom boy, and my first given name is Elizabeth, so he just started calling me tinlizzy ,and he painted it on the front bumper of his truck, I traveled all over the east coast before i was 11 years old. By the time I was 16 years old my dad had taught me how to drive. There werent many female drivers back then, and I weighed about 85 poundas, the first time we pulled into a truck stop and i got out, there was almost a major accident. we didnt have cb's back then when I was young,but learned a lot of hand signals and so on, so when cb's came out tinlizzy was my handle, and found I was well known in a lot of states, and even got to talk on the radio to a lot of older drivers that had more or less watched me grow up.It was a great life, and I still miss it dearly.

    I better get off before splitshot goes into withdrawel from not being on here.Yalk to,ya all later

    Tinlizzy I enjoyed your story and proud you are part of the BOC. Sounds like you have a great heritage. :big_smile: By the way my father owned a Model A Ford he called it his Tinlizzy.
