Tonka Giggles

Yesterday, me and my carpool buddy saw something strange:

That is a child's TONKA truck strapped to the back of a semi.
You can't see the entire 18-wheeler truck, but it is HUGE. 80% of the flatbed was packed with pallets of lumber. Then, at the very back, there is a child's toy strapped to the bed too. With it's own super-industrial-strength tie-down strap. WHAT?!?! This toy dumptruck was small enough to fit into a backpack, but for some reason, it required it's own cargo strap. It could have easily fit in the cab of the truck, too. Straps like this require quite a bit of finagling to get in the perfect position, too (Having moved several times myself, I for one, am not smart enough to use such straps).There are so many unanswered questions...

I have to assume the truck driver has a sense of humor, because it brought me the major giggles. Or maybe, he has a little boy who will take great joy in seeing his beloved toy back there. Either way, these explanations somewhat restore my faith in the goodness of people (even knowing the doormat thief is out there somewhere).


  1. That is totally funny! I wonder if he does have a little guy and is trying to impress him by delivering his toy.

  2. So funny! I love the random stuff you see on the freeway!

  3. I just discovered your blog and love it because I am basically obsessed w/ poodles! I have a little black toy poodle who goes by the name of Dilbert! Can't wait to keep reading!

  4. They usually do it for a child that has passed away.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
