Just for fun

Sometimes, I crack myself up…

I found an old Tonka toy dump truck for $22 yesterday at an antique store and brought it home to clean up and use for decorative display.
Of course, I had to have a little fun with it out in the driveway first, and took it for a little (Photoshop) drive. (You can click on the image to enlarge.)

Hope you all have a wonderful Spring weekend!

    i didn't even notice you were driving until i read the comments! i'm a little slow. hopefully i'll never be a witness to anything important because my observational skills are seriously lacking! i'd be of no help. "oh, you mean the thief was driving that car? i didn't see anyone driving. i just saw it was a blue car. car or truck, you ask? i don't remember. but it was blue!"

    you see? no help at all.
    but your photoshop skills are amazing. really amazing.
