It seems like my Saturday posts haven’t been much more than a recap of what I did for most of that day.
I’m o.k. with that, for the most part, because it means I’ve been doing something semi-notable.
Today was no different. My wife’s brother was moving, so she said we’d help out. No problem there…my brother-in-law is a great guy and I was glad to go along. Of course, I did do some grumbling at the earliness of the whole thing, but I got over it after some bribery consisting of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and a couple of chocolate doughnuts.
Anyway, pretty standard move….we were just there to move the “big stuff” and get done by 4:30 so the U-Haul could be returned on time. On one of the trips to the new house, my wife was texting her niece who lives in Texas. This niece’s husband is a district manager for a few U-Hauls out in the Longhorn State and she dropped a bit of trivia on us. It seems that all the new U-Haul “Super Graphics” have hidden in them, U-Haul’s mascot, Sammy U .
Here’s some folks who found Sammy….
Of course, when we got out of the truck, we had to go check it out. I wish I had taken a picture of the five of us, staring at the side of a U-Haul truck, and trying to find this thing. Our truck had the Hawaii Super Graphic, which features the alien looking ‘happy face spider‘. My wife, finally, found Sammy U…on one of the spider’s legs.
I had never heard of the ‘happy face spider’ nor knew of the extensive Super Graphics campaign put together by U-Haul. I’ll admit, it was pretty interesting and I don’t think I’ve ever spent so much time on a U-Haul site at a time when I wasn’t renting a truck.
All in all, it was a pretty educational (and tiring) day. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to take four ibuprofen and not call you in the morning.
Until next time….
