A Man and His Toys

It is often said that men never out grow the need for toys… is just the cost and size that changes. Many a wife can vouch for this man and his toy fetish. This weekend we took a 1300 mile road trip in two days to Iowa to pick up Rick's newest toy. He has always dreamed of having his high school car - a 1967 Silver 4 speed GTO.
Last Sunday night, thanks to his brother, who also knew of his dream, found him a 1967 4 speed GTO on eBay. Rick and his  iPad got busy. Within 15 minutes he had bought a car off the internet. I really do not think he thought he would get it. Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!
So this Labor Day weekend, his brother, Rick and i took a road trip. I think I enjoyed the trip the most. The only thing more entertaining than traveling with one Streetman is two Streetmans. 

The only difference between men and boys is the cost of their toys.  ~Author Unknown
