Imagine if you will:

You are driving down the interstate and it's a long monotonous stretch of road - not much scenery, conversation in dribs and drabs as each passenger is reflecting upon all there is to do at home after four days on the beach...

You take note of a truck coming up behind and then moving into the left lane to pass. It's a car carrier, but the trailer appears to be empty and it rattles loudly as he pulls along side and then ahead to pass. As he moves back into the right lane, I can see that his trailer is not empty after all. Lashed securely and painstakingly to the top rear ramp of that huge trailer is a little yellow Tonka truck. And I mean the tie downs were authentic !! We laughed and laughed and wondered - does the driver carries this toy just for amusement ? Is it a gift for a child back home or perhaps even a practical joke perpetrated upon the driver...? No matter. It sure made my day and renewed us for the remainder of the trip.

Wouldn't you want to know the person who thought that up?
