This is a sequel to "Ducky's Truck" which chronicled the plight of Douglas "Ducky" Ulbrich whose beloved 1969 Ford pick-up truck was taken away from him by a probate judge. The appeal went Ducky's way and the vehicle has been returned to him. He reflects on this reunion, ranch maintenance, and his physical/emotional well-being.

Douglas "Ducky" Ulbrich (84) is an old time Texas rancher who bought a new Ford pickup truck in 1968 shortly after he married Consuella Perkins. Two years ago, Consuella died, and before he could recover from the loss of his wife, her children convinced a probate court judge to let them take Ducky's 1969 Ford truck, which was his only working ranch vehicle. Now he feels like a cowboy without his favorite horse at a time in his life when he is too old to buy another Ford truck and keep it running for another 45 years. Ducky is appealing the judge's order but he is beside himself over the loss of his only working ranch vehicle which had served him well for half of his lifetime. His 160 acre hunting ranch, outside Hondo, Texas, is rugged and hilly and too tough for a new truck, and he needs his old Ford back.
