The Rusty Truck

“Hay Dad!!”, came from the back seat, “Let’s go back and look at that big red truck, it’s neat!”

And so began a short adventure. Half a mile down the road I finally found a driveway to turn around in. I hadn’t really noticed the truck that Jimmy was talking about, but I trusted his observations.

3-5-daisy_may2-cp-1320When we got back to ‘the truck’ I saw why he was interested, kinda old, originally painted red. With the new flag, and the rust and broken door handle it had “Character”.

“Dad, is that the truck we saw in the 4th of July Parade?”

“Don’t think so, we’re a long way from home, but I bet it was in a parade near here,” I replied. “It looks old, but I bet it runs like a top.”
