Hey, ya'll!!

I registered here recently and never got around to introducing myself.  I hope this is the right place for formal introductions??

My name is Tony Trout and I'm a son of a former long haul/short haul OTR truck driver who's name was Junior Trout.  He was employed by Turpin Trucking Company which was formerly based in Hiawassee, GA.  

When I was born, the doctors in Cleveland, TN told my Mom and Dad that I would never live and, even if I did, I would be institutionalized and I wouldn't know anyone or anything and be in a vegetative state for all of my life - which, they predicted, wouldn't be past twelve years old.  God knew more than they did and here I am thirty-eight years later and I've been blessed with the gift of being able to play several musical instruments: 

Guitars:  acoustic/electric/bass/slide/lap steel/b-bender
Piano/Keyboards
Drums

And I also sing!!  

Before I lost my father on February 5, 1980, I remember going to Gainesville, GA a few times with Mom and Dad and, during one of those trips, Mom set me over in the driver's seat of the cab of that Mack F COE and I sat there pretending I was driving.  I so badly wanted to be a driver - but my health situation has prevented that.  :(

I'm glad I found this place!!  If there's one thing I wish I could have, other than having my father back, it would be to have a model built of my father's white Mack F COE with the trailer - but that probably won't ever happen, either, because I don't have the money to spend on having one made.  :(  

I just wanted to introduce myself and I hope that I have placed this in the right forum.  

Thank you guys for having me!!

God Bless, 
Tony Trout

Tony, welcome to JOT. You might re-post this in the Peter J section, I think more people will see it there.
