Back to Work.

I came upon this after parking at a friends home and art studio while on the Dixon Studio tour. His son must have been in the midst of a construction project and decided to take a break. It brought back memories of the Tonka trucks that my dad used to by for me.

I have always admired all these huge machines and the projects attached to them! Especially when they park in a row at night.
Yes you are right they remind me too of the children's toys, we still have a couple of them.

Looks almost real! I used to have Tonka Toys, too. For awhile we lived near Minnetonka, Minnesota, where they are made.

Ah, boys and their toys...
At least their toys are affordable when boys are that age.
